  • Notes

    • REVIEW: The panel, especially Steve, had a pretty decent night this particular evening. However, it was Arlene who correctly guessed that the first contestant, who was wearing a very big hat, was a private investigator. In the second game, even though Steve was given credit for a correct guess, he made a mistake and said that she was a barmaid instead of a bartender. Of course, the difference is that a barmaid just serves drinks while a bartender not only serves the drinks, but mixes them as well. However, Steve did legitimately guess that the mystery guest was screen legend Ann Sothern. After her game, she told John that everybody on the West coast loves What's My Line? Unfortunately, the panel ran out of time before they figured out that the final contestant tested tanks for the Army, and he wound up winning by default. - Sargebri (2004)

      Coincidentally, in December 2004, Miss Sothern's 1953 appearance on Goodson-Todman's "The Name's the Same" was aired by GSN one night before this WML episode was aired. - Sargebri (2004)

      BREADBOX WATCH!!! The breadbox question wasn't used in any of this evening's games. - Sargebri (2004)
