BEV­ERLY HILLS, Calif. — Monty Hall, the ge­nial TV game show host whose long-run­ning “Let’s Make a Deal” traded on love of money and mer­chan­dise and the mys­tery of which door had the car be­hind it, has died. He was 96.

Hall, who had been in poor health, died of heart fail­ure at his home in Bev­erly Hills, said his daugh­ter, Sharon Hall of Los An­ge­les.

“Let’s Make a Deal,” which Hall co- cre­ated, de­buted as a day­time show on NBC in 1963 and be­came a TV sta­ple. Through the next four decades, it also aired in prime time, in syn­di­ca­tion and, in two brief out­ings, with hosts other than Hall at the helm.

An episode of “The Odd Cou­ple” fea­tured Felix Unger ( Tony Ran­dall) and Os­car Madi­son (Jack Klug­man) as bick­er­ing guests on Hall’s pro­gram.

Con­tes­tants were cho­sen from the stu­dio au­di­ence — out­landishly dressed as an­i­mals, clowns or car­toon char­ac­ters to at­tract the host’s at­ten­tion — and would start the game by trad­ing an item of their own for a prize. Af­ter that, it was mat­ter of swap­ping the prize in hand for oth­ers hid­den be­hind doors, cur­tains or in boxes, presided over by the leggy, smil­ing Carol Mer­rill.

The query “Do you want Door No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3?” be­came a pop­u­lar catch phrase, and the chance of win­ning a new car a mat­ter of pri­mal ur­gency. Prizes could be a car or a mink coat or a worth­less item dubbed a “zonk.”

The en­er­getic, quick­think­ing Hall, a sight him­self with his side­burns and col­or­ful sports coats, was deemed the per­fect host in Alex McNeil’s ref­er­ence book, “To­tal Tele­vi­sion.”

“Monty kept the show mov­ing while he treated the out­ra­geously garbed and oc­ca­sion­ally greedy con­tes­tants cour­te­ously; it is hard to imag­ine any­one else but Hall work­ing the trad­ing area as smoothly,” McNeil wrote.

For Hall, the in­ter­ac­tion was easy.

“I’m a peo­ple per­son,” he said on the PBS doc­u­men­tary se­ries “Pi­o­neers of Tele­vi­sion.” ‘’And so I don’t care if they jump on me, and I don’t care if they yell and they fainted — those are my peo­ple.”

The game show gave rise to an aca­demic ex­er­cise in which stu­dents are asked to weigh this ques­tion: In guess­ing which of three doors might con­ceal a prize car, and af­ter one is elim­i­nated as a pos­si­bil­ity, should you switch your choice to the one you didn’t pick?

The puz­zle sparked heated ex­changes in Mar­i­lyn vos Sa­vant’s Pa­rade magazine col­umn. (The an­swer to the Monty Hall Prob­lem, Hall and oth­ers said, was yes, take the switch — but only if the con­test is set up so the host can­not skew the re­sults by of­fer­ing some guests the chance to switch doors and not giv­ing oth­ers the same op­tion.)

Af­ter five years on NBC, “Let’s Make a Deal” moved to ABC in 1968 and aired on the net­work through 1976, in­clud­ing prime-time stints. It went into syn­di­ca­tion in the 1970s and 1980s, re­turn­ing to NBC in 199091 and again in 2003. In 2009 it re­turned on CBS with host Wayne Brady and is still on the air.

His name and show re­main part of the lan­guage. Typ­i­cal is the quo­ta­tion in a 2006 Day­tona Beach ( Florida) NewsJour­nal pro­file of a no-non­sense bail bondswoman who says, “I’m not Monty Hall and this isn’t ‘Let’s Make a Deal.’ “

Hall also guest-starred in sit­coms and ap­peared in TV com­mer­cials. And with the wealth that the game show brought, he made phi­lan­thropy and fundrais­ing his av­o­ca­tion. He spent 200 days a year at it, he said, es­ti­mat­ing in the late 1990s that he had coaxed $700 mil­lion from donors.

His daugh­ter Sharon es­ti­mated that Hall man­aged to raise nearly $ 1 bil­lion for char­ity over his life­time.

An­other daugh­ter, Joanna Glea­son, is a long­time Broad­way and tele­vi­sion ac­tress. She won a Tony in 1988 for best ac­tress in a mu­si­cal for “Into the Woods” and was nom­i­nated for Tonys two other times.

Born Monty Hal­parin in Win­nipeg, Man­i­toba, in Canada, Hall grew up dur­ing the De­pres­sion. In 1942, Hall was do­ing man­ual la­bor at the time when a wealthy stranger of­fered to pay for his col­lege ed­u­ca­tion on con­di­tion that he re­paid the money, got top grades, kept his bene­fac­tor’s name anony­mous and agreed to help some­one else.

Hall only re­vealed the name of the late Max Freed about 30 years later.

Hall earned a de­gree from the Univer­sity of Man­i­toba with the goal of be­com­ing a physi­cian. He was de­nied en­try to med­i­cal school, Hall later said, be­cause he was Jewish and faced quo­tas lim­it­ing the ad­mis­sion of mi­nor­ity stu­dents.
