This daytime episode, on the Friday before Father's Day, turned up on YouTube. The intros and the first bidding game is missing, so this recap picks up as celebrity panelist Rudy Vallee calls Audrey Chiles from the audience. She'll be who Rudy plays for in the second bidding game. The announcer is ABC announcer Ed Jordan.

The civilian contestants are identified as Mrs. Sherrill, Mr. Bertanni, and Mrs. McCarthy.

Actual retail price: $988.95, with Mrs. Sherrill the winner, and she hit the bonus bell. For her bonus, she receives 100 pieces of paper plates and cups in the lido and chianti designs from Continental Can Co, and 50 units of smoked salami from American Kosher Provisions.
 
Rudy's next audience participant: Madeline Barr from Hollis N Y. Next item is from the show's Curiosity Shop, meaning the item could cost a few pennies or hundreds of dollars. The item: A 2-ft high barber pole lamp, imported from Italy. Price authority: A. Simkins imports, Brooklyn NY.


Mrs. McCarthy opens and it's another one-bid item:

The winner of the Riviera Sweepstakes is announced. The items are a Riviera vacation via Sabena Airlines, floor wax, and Chunky candy, which all come to a price of $2031.09.

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.

Correction: Mrs. Sherrill's total is after four days, seeing as this was a daytime show.
