Late 1970's clip?
« on: June 26, 2018, 03:32:29 AM »
Trying to find out what date this clip is from. Looking up games does not really help:

Sometimes I do wonder.

I think it might be either late 1979 or 1980, more likely 1980 given the curtains are still the same from 1975 as well as the seat covers still being blue, plus with the opening titles changed and Walking being less orchestrated. No exact date other than some hints.

The clothing styles definitely look more early '80s than late '70s to me--my guess is 1981.

That Take Two split screen was short-lived. A quick YouTube search shows it was used for a playing in September 1980 but not for one in June 1982.

That must be 1980, then. Was it ever used in Race Game, which uses the exact same setup?

Other visual cues are the pink dollar signs on the Big Wheel and the 1975-style Turntable design.

Another hint that I could give is the fact the tenor buzzer was pretty much the same as the September 26, 1980 show, so I'm leaning on early October 1980 as later that month the seats changed to green.
