This originally aired on December 4, 1984.

I wonder if the prop was designed to be compatible with 5-digit prices from the get-go.  I think that because, the trilon with the dollar sign appears to be sunken into the prop with the rest of them.  Interesting how "chimes" are used here instead of the horns we know and love.

IMO, you take away the "gentlemen/ladies/people" do I have X number right schtick and this game sucks.
They can be close at the top, too.

What's also interesting here is the close-up Marc Breslow did for when a number was chosen.  I wonder if that was done all the time for this game, when he was still director.

That's what I've been wondering too-I 've wondering when they built the prop originally if it was designed to be 5 digit compatible as well at that time.

I always thought the first playing was that clip where there is a short older lady and everything goes wrong with the game. The price ends up being revealed wrong, but she wins anyway.

Why did that playing get so screwed up when it wasnt the first playing.

That was probably the first (or one of the first) time they used the horns.

Bob confirms that this is the first playing, so it most likely is.  At least it would be the first playing of One Away to air.

What unusual thing am I missing in Safe Crackers?

I always though One Away was designed to use 5-digit prices (together with 4-digit prices). They had already begun modifying games for higher prices. The people who designed the game must have foreseen the need for a 5th digit.

The only oddity I'm seeing is a price without a zero in it.
