Dennis certainly managed to outlive more than a few of his cigarette-smoking contemporaries in the '50s, based on the '90s A&E Time Machine doc on TV and cigarette advertising where James was among the few surviving TV pitchmen for tobacco interviewed.

He did all right hosting the nighttime syndicated The Price is Right, though he came off as a touch bland, compared to Bob Barker. If he had gotten the DAYTIME gig (as had been initially intended), TPIR might not have made it into the 21st century.
