What's My Line with mystery guest Joan Rivers (1968)

Gunsmoke wth special guest star Glenn Strange (1966)

Floyd Patterson vs. Ingemar Johansson (1961)

Arguably, the first "pay TV" or "pay-per-view" event that ever occurred - certainly the first of major significance.  Community arenas and public theaters brodcasted the event on closed-circuit and fans could watch for the price of a ticket.
