Place the Face was a panel question game show. It was a spinoff of This is Your Life.
At first, regular persons were invited to be contestants. They would seek to identify an important face from their past, perhaps a former teacher, a police officer who had given the contestant a ticket, or the person next to the contestant in the graduation line. The emcee gave the contestant clues, and he or she could pose "yes or no" questions.
