Fame Is the Name of the Game

Fame Is the Name of the Game

"Fame Is the Name of the Game" (1966) is an American TV-movie, directed by Stuart Rosenberg, that aired on NBC and served as the pilot episode of the subsequent series "The Name of the Game". The film stars Tony Franciosa as an investigative journalist and presents the screen debut of 20-year-old Susan Saint James. The telefilm also features Jill St. John, Jack Klugman, and Robert Duvall.

In an unprecedented blitz of TV ads which garnered phenomenal ratings leading to a spin-off series, NBC erroneously billed the telefilm as television's first "world premiere" of a "major motion picture".
