Face to Face is an early American television game show running 15 minutes. It began broadcasting on the NBC Television network on June 9, 1946 and ran until January 26, 1947 on Sundays at 8:00 pm EST, immediately before Geographically Speaking.
The concept of the show was for a cartoonist to make a drawing of a person he had never seen, based on a description given by other people. Originally, the unseen person was in another room, but later in the show, the person was moved onto the stage, separated from the artist by a curtain. This allowed the audience to see the person's face as the drawing took shape.
There were also quiz questions, in which participants had to identify people based on clues.
