Recap for January 27, 1975 (1261D)
« on: April 25, 2022, 12:08:30 AM »
A fortune in fabulous prizes may go to these people today if they know when The Price is Right!

Bertha, Christopher, Leslie and Patricia, come on down! You are the first four contestants on The Price is Right!

Westinghouse Refrigerator/Freezer and to the winner goes a supply of Lady Borden Ice Cream

Patricia- 479
Leslie- 450
Christopher- 550
Bertha- 425

The Actual Retail Price is $485.

Patricia will play SHELL GAME for a Sunshine Brass Bed King Sized Brass Bed worth $1,035!

In SHELL GAME, we have four shells on a table, one of which conceals a ball. Played like the carnival game of the same name, the host mixes up the shells so that no one knows where the ball is. The contestant is then shown four small prizes, one at a time, each with an incorrect price. The contestant guesses whether the actual price is higher or lower than the displayed price. A correct answer wins the prize and a chip, which the contestant uses to mark a shell which they think conceals the ball. Once all four prizes are played, the shells are removed one-by-one to reveal the ball. If the shell concealing the ball is marked with a chip, the contestant wins a large prize. If the contestant guesses the wrong price for all of the small prizes, the game automatically ends in a loss. Conversely, should the player win all four chips, they automatically win the large prize and can earn a cash bonus equivalent to the prize value by guessing which shell conceals the ball.

PRIZE 1: Hoover Paddle Top Blender
The price is not $63. Is the right price Higher or Lower?
Patricia says LOWER- CORRECT! $45
She places the chip at Shell 3

PRIZE 2: Braun Aeromatic Coffee Maker and Coffee Mill
The price is not $78. Higher or Lower?
Patricia says LOWER- WRONG! $100

PRIZE 3: Schick Portable Hair Dryer

Patricia says HIGHER- WRONG! $25

PRIZE 4: Ace Hardware Ace-Tone Latex Paint
The price is not $17- Higher or Lower?

With 2 shells, let's see if she wins anything!
Shell 2- NO BALL
Shell 1- NO BALL
Shell 4- BALL! LOSS!!!

Bob fumbles at the contestant call because of an earlier conversation with Bertha. People had been waiting as long as 9 or 10 months for tickets to The Price is Right. Bertha said she could have had a baby instead of coming to the show. Bob tells her that she don't have Babies by writing to CBS. Bob was trying to call a contestant but maybe Johnny can help him out of it.

Bob had deduced that Richard was in some sort of Armed Services during the last Contestant call (he was a Navy man). Bob also deduces that Christopher may live in Reseda and by looking at his hands, might be a student (He is, Chris is studying to be an accountant). Bob also finds out that Bertha works for a telephone company. Bob asks Johnny to find him a fourth person that he may interview and know the secrets of.
