The TALK Is Right / Re: Model quirks in the Carey era
« Last post by PriceFan87 on Today at 06:11:58 PM »
Something else I noticed is that starting around season 37 some of the models would mouth the words "if the Price is Right" (or sometimes just "Price is Right") along with the announcer at the end of a showcase. I think Lanisha may have been the one who started it, but Manuela picked it up more the season after that, and soon after Rachel and Amber - and Tiffany Coyne on occasion when she was filling in - would do it as well. Now it doesn't happen as often. Does anyone know specifically when this started?

I'm pretty sure this traces back way beyond the start of the Carey era because I seem to remember Dian doing this as well. Either the late 70s or early 80s episodes before the director would transition with a wipe before the end of the V/O. I always assumed that this practice was revived specifically as a nod to the past. Someone here could probably back me up though - could just be a wonky memory  :D.

The TALK Is Right / Re: Big Banana Cue Question

Bump.

That's because that particular cut was used for the "department store" showcases (featuring Anitra or Dian as the elevator operator).

Didn't the original "department store" showcases feature a cut from the 1972 reel? I'm pretty sure it's a vamp of this one:

I don't have a TVPMM subscription so I can't nail down the exact cue number.

Don't forget the Tom Kennedy episodes if you consider those a part of the 'current era'.

The TALK Is Right / Re: CBS curtains
« Last post by goldroadfanatic on Today at 03:20:05 PM »
Per the timeline, the multicolor curtains that surrounded the audience debuted on the May 17, 2002 primetime special that saluted the U.S. Navy. That change carried over to the daytime show at the start of Season 31.

This is the earliest known 3 Strikes playing (the seventh) that currently circulates. The Dining Room showcase also features an early example of "videocassette viewing", as the VHS/Beta formats were less than a year old at the time. The wheel beeps also have a more substantial beeping sound compared to the first several months of the Big Wheel.

Another question, when did they stop showing the CBS curtains on the sides of the audience, and instead extend the colored curtains (the ones covering the production booth) around the entire audience area?
