March 22, 1965 (ABC daytime)
« on: August 24, 2011, 07:11:21 AM »
Another recently surfaced show with Jack Clark filling in for Bill Cullen, who is on vacation...

Jack chats with this week's special guest, actress Dorothy Lamour. Dorothy draws four cards from the hopper of cards with the names of audience members she is playing for. She says she wants to win for the folks more than she wants to win for herself.

The other bargain hunters:
* - Dali DeFlece is the returning champion, from Bridgeboro N J. He became champion on Friday's show with $1215 in winnings.

* - Fawn Taylor is from American Fork UT.

* - Gertrude Rose is from Newport R I.

Dorothy reads the first card: She is playing for Mary Wach, who comes on down (yep, they used "Come on down" back in the ABC days) to the little waiting stand on stage.

All contestants receive a copy of the Price Is Right game (the card game "Bid It Right").

First item up for bids: A 23-in. color TV console with remote. Price authority: Zenith Sales Corp., Chicago.

Mr. DeFlece opens anywhere; minimums are $25:
(*--frozen bid; last bid buzzer follows bid in bold)

- - DeFLECE - - - TAYLOR - - - ROSE - - - LAMOUR - -
..................25 ...............50 ..............75 ..............100
................150 .............200 ............225 .............300
.............* 560 ...........*585 .........* 650 ...........* 300

Actual retail price: $699.95, with Mrs. Rose the winner and she hit the bonus bell. She receives and artist's paint kit from Grumbacher and glassware in Early American design from Anchor-Hocking.
 
Dorothy's second card: Mrs. George Jack. Next item: Furniture grouping in Spanich-Colonial-inspired design of mahogany. Price authority: Design House Ltd., New York.

Mrs. Taylor opens anywhere; minimums are $50:
- - DeFLECE - - - TAYLOR - - - ROSE - - - LAMOUR - -
....................... ..............100 ...........150 ...............250
.................300 ................350 ..........* 675 ...........* 725
..............* 300 ............*350

Actual retail price: $1036.50, with Dorothy winning for Mrs. George Jack. Dorothy was quite upset that there wasn't a bonus attached to it for Mrs. Jack.

Jack tells viewers for tickets to the show, write to:
The Price Is Right
Tickets
ABC-TV
7 West 66th Street
New York City N Y 10023


Dorothy's third card: Paul Skappia. Next item comes from the show's "Curiosity Shop," meaning the bidders must use their judgment as to whether the item is valuable or quite cheap. The item is a fan in brass finish that can hold three photographs. Price authority: Edward H. Ziff, Chicago IL.

Mrs. Rose starts, and it's a one-bid item:
- - DeFLECE - - - TAYLOR - - - ROSE - - - LAMOUR - -
................. ................ ................* 150 ............* 75
..........* 60 ...........*175

Actual retail price: $10.95, everybody overbid. The bonus attached to it goes by the wayside.

The first look at this week's sweepstakes is shown for the home audience. The items are a 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle 300 series four-door sedan with standard equipment and a 6-cylinder engine, Spun Satin make-up, a Ship 'N' Shore blouse, 24 Chunky candy bars, and Ideal's "Mouse Trap" game. Johnny Gilbert tells viewers to send their postcards with their bid on the entire package to:

March Sweepstakes
The Price Is Right
P.O. Box 211
New York City, N Y 10046


Cards must be received no later than March 30 with the winner announced on the April 2 show. Estimate the price of the car at its F.O.B. price, Flint MI; all other items at city of manufacture, exclusive of all retail taxes.

Dorothy's fourth card: Eno Fienga. Final item: A motorboat. Larson's All American 166 with a vinyl convertible top and a 75-hp Evinrude motor, plus Holtzclaw trailer. Price authorities: Larson Boatworks, Little Falls PA; Evinrude motors, Milwaukee WI; and Holtzclaw Bros. Inc., Evansville IN.

Dorothy starts anywhere; minimums are $100:

- - DeFLECE - - - TAYLOR - - - ROSE - - - LAMOUR - -
..................... ..................... ................. ................600
..................700 ...............800 ............900 ..............1100
................1600 .............1700 ..........1900 ..............2000
.............* 1600 .............2100 .......* 2200 ...........* 2000
.............* 1600 ...........* 2300

Actual retail price: $2348, with Mrs. Taylor the winner.

Final totals:
- - DeFLECE - - - TAYLOR - - - ROSE - - - LAMOUR - -
..................0 ...........2348 .............820 ..........1036

Mrs. Taylor is the new champion and returns Tuesday to defend. Mr. DeFlece leaves with $1215. The other three people Dorothy played for receives a 3-piece set of American Tourister luggage.

Irony is when somebody writes "Your an idiot."
If you spell the name as "Freemantle" because you think that's how it's spelled, you're not paying attention.

Why were there four rounds on a daytime episode instead of six?

There were almost always four rounds of bidding played on the Cullen version (both daytime and nighttime).  The only show that I have seen that did not have four was the next-to-last nighttime show...they played five rounds because there was no Home Viewer Showcase that week.

And don't forget that in its half-hour days, the CBS show (and its concurrent syndicated nighttime show) had only three rounds then the Showcase.
