“HELENA, MONT. – Customers attending the Ski-Hi Drive-In Wednesday and Thursday were invited to come to the snack bar and purchase an envelope for 95 cents guaranteed to contain $1, $2, or $5. Some envelopes contained a $5 bill. Only one envelope was sold to a customer. The operators of the drive-in theater said there were no gimmicks and no obligation, that they just wanted to see the customers' smiling faces.” — Boxoffice, July 4, 1960
