Most viewed - Remember When?
594 viewsHere's a dirty trick! Instead of the usual number distribution with three potential first half numbers, they used each double-digit pair other than 00! And yes, on occasion they have used 00!
592 viewsJohnny Olson, TPIR's first announcer, about to transform himself into superhero 'Captain Klutz.' Just over his shoulder is the crawl board that shows the "short credits," the "MGBT" logo, the Television City credit, and the show logo. And just to the left is the tall board used to display the promotional consideration credits. Note its shape: by being curved inward it prevented the individual lines from being distorted, an effect known as "keystoning." A camera would tilt down each board, which would make the information "roll" up the screen.
592 viewsA blooper win on "Range Game." The contestant pressed the STOP button, but the rangefinder didn't stop. They moved the rangefinder back, but when she didn't win, Bob awarded her the prize anyway, joking that everyone at home would say, "Barker, you're a bum!" if he didn't give her the prize.
590 viewsIt's time to play "Bump," and Janice and Dian are ready to play, and picking on ol' Barker with their tennis shoes!
589 viewsYou want heartbreak? How about poor Dolores, who actually lost Hole in One in 1982 after getting all six products in order and winning a putt from the closest line! She didn't push the ball hard enough. And this was well before the two-putt rule was in place.
588 viewsHolly Hallstrom played his plain-jane girlfriend, in a bow to Talia Shire's role as Adrian, the pet shop worker who was Rocky's girlfriend in the actual film. Holly put in a great performance in this showcase despite no dialogue.
587 viewsOne of the favorite features of the showcase was the many movie spoofs, called Flaky Flicks. One of the greatest ones was Socky.
587 viewsDuring 5 Price Tags, this contestants tries to pick her own Price right off the board! Bob quickly tries to reach up and stop her, but she pulls off the tag anyway and wins the car on her first pick!
587 viewsOops! Dian and Holly were given the assignment of revealing the $15,000 top prize for the "Phone Home Game." Unfortunately, for this playing, they were holding the banner backwards, so when they pulled the two retractable scrolls away from each other to reveal the banner, this is what we saw!
585 viewsWhenever prizes were presented on the turntable in the 1970's, all the lights in the studio went down except for a spot on the prize. Then Barker was lit up as he asked for the opening bid, after which point the studio lights returned to normal.
585 viewsWhen announcers were shown on camera, this was a typical shot used to call contestants to "Come On Down!" Here is Rod calling down a contestant in a 1990 episode.
585 viewsIt's "Wok" of Fame! Terrible joke, we know. We couldn't resist!
