Betty White and Allen Ludden (this was such an endearing love story, they found each other in middle age, married, totalling devoted to each other and he died unexpectly. She has never remarried and stil talks about him in such lovng terms)
In the Sixties, Betty White was a fixture on television game shows and as host, with Lorne Greene, of the annual Tournament of Roses Parade. As a celebrity on game shows, she was known for her smart, competitive game play. She appeared on husband Allen Luden’s “Password,” the original “Match Game,” “What’s My Line” and others. She appeared frequently on “The Tonight Show,” eventually guest-hosting for Johnny Carson a few times.
