A rare 0000 win from the Tom Kennedy era from 1977
Video Rating: four / 5
1977 HAD SOME GREAT HITS☺
The guard is a nice touch.
Michel Mencien was the pianist here; later, NTT bandleader Tommy Oliver would use Michel Rubini as his pianist. Two different guys.
@gshowguy Right. The important thing is that she NAMED THAT TUNE.
@goback3spaces I always thought it was spelled “Michel”, too. But with “Menchen” as his last name, he could be either German or Dutch.
@danbarker39 Naw, it’s probably Michel. It’s French, mon ami.
the man’s name is MICHELLE? PLAYING THE PIANO?
the man’s name is MICHELLE?
There was an interesting blooper I remember seeing from another finals show. In that one, the security guard had to unlock the name of the tune from a safe backstage. Unfortunately for the security guard, when it came time for him to open the safe, he had forgotten the combination to unlock it! It was hilarious.
@alrightlol so no one can yell it out dumbass
@alrightlol: They did that to eliminate the possibility of her hearing some idiot in the audience shout out the name of the song upon recognition of the melody, which would have thereby ruined her chance at legitimately winning what was, at that time, the biggest cash prize in television game show history.
Notice that Tom does not advise the audience to hush or remain quiet… had they done this without an isolation booth, there would have been a bigger margin for problems as a consquence.
announcer’s gay as a $3 bill
why did they put her in a box? thats kinda useless if she can hear it loud and clear
chariots of fire
Hey can someone tell me the name of a song that was music only in a movie I cant remember name of but has a bunch of young guys running down a beach in shorts to this tune. i think college students. a sort of inspiritation award winning movie. thats all I remember.
wuts wit the booth? haha
i liked it when the women put there winning money inside there bra cup. judy barlow was the best.
$124,000 for her, not bad back in 1977.
I can break that niggers leg with 3 kicks, I can break in 2 kicks, I can break his leg with 1 kick.
OK off you go Lame that coon.
$10K per year for 10 years. I take it that by 1986 or so, the same $10k didn’t carry as much weight as it did in ’77.
Oh wow. You’re the lady on the show! =] I trust you….thanks for the reply.
Trust me, I could only hear Tom and the piano. I don’t know how they did it and I never stopped to think about it. It was all pretty exciting!!!
My iPhone could not name that tune.
Dannybkn… they have it set up so that only Tom’s microphone and the piano’s microphone can be heard in the booth. That way she can’t hear the audience. If tom were to hold his microphone about 4 feet from his mouth, the mic would not pic it up, so theefore, the audience would not come through on either mic. There ARE mics that pick up form longer distances, but thye are called “boom” mics, and are designed VERY differently.
