tpirmodelstv.com - Anitra & Janice 3

Here is a video of clips from the early days of "The Price is Right." These scenes taped in the 70's, are fun and vibrant, and as I taped hundreds of shows over my four-and-a-half years as one of the two first "Price is Right" models, their memory runs deep.

  1. Poise, expression, gestures and an obvious dedication to physical fitness brought glamor even to pumpkin pie filling and popping-corn. Not an easy job, I now realize from this film montage, but you performed with the grace of a magician. Brava. I learn here.

    1. But it is you who are the magician, with your gift with words and unique vision. I always enjoy reading your blogs and, of course, receiving your comments here.

      You are right, Geo, it was not an easy job. It is an unusual contrast: who I perceive you to be and the world of game shows. I am honored by your kind words and delighted by your open learning mind.

      Health and joy to You and Norma

  2. Great collage of TPIR moments. I remember every single one of them.

    Anitra, I must admit, if I had an elevator operator that looked like you I probably would find every excuse on earth to stay in that elevator! (Until of course the men in the white coats with those big butterfly nets came to chase me out of there!).

  3. You remember them all, that's amazing.

    Your comments always make me smile, Jonathan. I can see it now, "The man in the elevator who wouldn't leave." Perhaps your could set up your drums and play in there, only pausing when the doors opened on each floor.

    Lovely to hear from you, Jonathan. Wishing you happy days, ~ Aneet

  4. Aneet, just wanted to wish you and your family a very happy and healthy Easter. And oh, the next elevator you enter, I just might be in there ready to play a nice melodic solo around the tom-toms for you!

    1. Jonathan,

      Lovely to hear from you on this luminous day. Thank you for your kind wishes. I look forward to the serenade. Perhaps I should bring my bongos and we could have an acoustic jam session.

      Warm wishes to you. Have not only a beautiful day, but a serendipitous springtime, ~ Aneet

    1. Hi Charlie,

      It's nice to see you here. A lot of people have expressed what you have about viewing the old Price is Right clips. There is usually something more innocent in looking back to the days of the past. And TPIR was definitely fun for all of us.

      I hope you may find some joy or make some joy, even in the midst of work and dues.

      Sending my good wishes to you Charlie. Sincerely, ~ Anitra

    1. Roget,

      Lovely to hear from you. Glad you cleared up that password problem. Those Internet nightmares!

      I too have appreciated the quality of this video. We used to have quite a few to draw from at one time, and then they dwindled. So now, it's especially fun to watch this one, and with Janice too :)

      I hope that life if treating you kindly. I know that you contribute so much. Thank you Roger for your good wishes. Sending my warm regards to you and your family,

      ~ Aneet

  9. Anitra, Thanks for posting the video. Time travel back to that era floods me with warm memories of youth and a very different world. You and Janice were a bright and gorgeous part of those days. I appreciate you sharing your artistic glimpses of your world today as well as those of the past. My best to you and your family. JOEL in GA

  12. Hi Anitra!

    I just wanted to say thank you! I was born in 1968 and my very earliest memories with my mom were watching TPIR in the early 70's. What a perfect show for kids with all the flashy prizes and fun games. You were a very important 'personality' for me, you and Janice had such genuine smiles and really made a huge impression. After watching this clip I have to ask....did they ever let you keep any of the amazing fashions you got to wear on the show? It is so surreal to think I can thank you for making my childhood even better without ever realizing it. Hope 2015 is a spectacular year for you! Shannon

    1. Hello Shannon,

      Thank you so much for sharing here. It's delightful to hear of your past and your relationship with "The Price is Right." It's true, "Price" is a great show for all ages. Really brilliantly devised and produced.

      As for the fashions, no, we didn't keep any of them. They belonged, of course, to CBS. The fact is, Both Jan and I had very similar taste in clothes, and would sometimes show up in the same belt or blouse or shoes (but in a different color.) Our personal styles were actually very different than what we wore on the show. In some ways, we were modeling. Representing an image of what was wanted to be conveyed. Our wardrobe woman was kept on a very tight budget, and bought many of our dresses at places like Learner's.

      I have to say, that she did a wonderful job, and the clothes we wore were really fun to see on the screen.

      I'm delighted to see you here, Shannon, and if you have just discovered my blog, let me say: "WELCOME!"

      Sincerely, ~ Anitra
