Bank on the Stars

Several teams of two contestants each watched movie clips and answered related trivia questions. Each team member gave a separate answer. If both were correct, the team won $100; if only one was correct, they won $50. If neither gave a correct answer, the team was disqualified. Each team played for up to $300 and a $500 bonus. Even the losing teams won on this show; they dipped one hand into a barrel of silver dollars and kept what they could hold.
