The pictures that you see on this page are from the opening credits of
Win Ben Stein's Money. The lines at the top of this page are what Ben Stein says
during the opening. There's not enough space to show what goes on during the entire
opening, but if you have RealPlayer G2 and Internet Explorer, then you can watch the
video. But, to the tune of classical music, we see
talking to us, as well as seeing Ben's face on various classical masterpieces, such as
Michelangelo's David, and Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
If you would like to be a contestant on Win Ben Stein's Money,
Ben tells you how to do it at the end of every show. That would be to write, call,
or Email to Futility.com, for the
chance, albeit a small one, that on some planet, on some distant day, you might WIN
BEN STEIN'S MONEY!
