Jim_Lange_1971
A newspaper feature writer gushed in 1969 that Jim Lange, the host of  The Dating Game , personified "the swinging, nattily dressed bachelor." The description might seem amusingly quaint today, but then again, so would the show itself. During its original run from 1965 to 1973, The Dating Game - in which a "bachelorette" picked one of three prospective bachelors hidden behind a screen, or vice-versa, by asking provocative questions - was an awkward artifact of society's evolving attitudes about sexual freedom and openness.
