Winner of 'Best Documentary' at the Orlando FIlm Festival, 'Perfect Bid' explores how Slauson became adept at recording and memorizing prices of products featured on the show since its inception in 1972, culminating in him helping a contestant place a perfect bid during a 2008 Showcase, and ending in one of the biggest controversies in game show history as covered by TIME Magazine, Esquire, TMZ and more. Upon seeing a rough cut, Roger Dobkowitz, 5 time Emmy winner and 36-year producer of the show, along with television legend, Bob Barker, both commended Wallis' workmanship, and gave of their time in support of the project by participating in interview sessions and providing invaluable context for the film. 'I think this wonderful documentary has a big chance of breaking away from all the other documentaries that come out each year. I am happy someone is recognizing the dedication of our fans,' said Dobkowitz. 'Ted Slauson is a loyal friend and true. People like that are the reason I didn't have to work for a living....its the least I could do'.
