"Take It or Leave It" was a very popular radio quiz show during its run. The show
ran for 10 years on CBS (1940-1947) and NBC (1947-1950), and was hosted
by Bob Hawk (1940-1941), Phil Baker (1941-1947), Garry Moore (1947-1949),
Eddie Cantor (1949-1950), and Jack Paar (1950). It became the precursor of
