« on: August 13, 2018, 05:36:50 AM »
Another ABC daytime show, airing on a Friday, appeared on YouTube recently; this has Jack Clark guest host while Bill Cullen (now billed as the show's executive producer) is on vacation. This week's celebrity player is Dorothy Lamour (she would appear again the week of March 22). The other contestants:

* Current champ Ann Varise, who won $1231 on Thursday's show.

* Joseph Williams, from Chicago. He was last week's sweepstakes winner.

* Margaret Gerard, from Cleveland.

Dorothy draws four cards from the hopper with the names of the audience members she will play for. The first card: Mrs. H.L. Jacobs. All contestants get the Price Is Right box game (under the supplementary name "Bid It Right").

First item: the Select-a-Rest adjustable bed, a twin-size bed electronically controlled to adjust for comfort. Price authority: Norman Dyne Sleep Center, New York.

Mrs. Varise opens anywhere with minimums at $10 (*--frozen bid; last bid buzzer follows bid in bold)

Correction (so what else is new?): on the first bidding game, Mrs. Varise's final bid was 210. I missed putting that down.
