  • This was a very witty and lively episode including one of the most unusual bits of coincidence in the history of What's My Line...or almost any other television program.

    This was a very special and unique episode for several reasons, including an extremely unusual coincidence revolving around one of the panelists and the night's mystery guest. Many years subsequent to its initial live airing, the widow of long-time panelist Bennett Cerf (who passed away in 1971) would marry tonight's mystery guest, the then recently elected New York City Mayor, Robert Wagner, Jr. She met Mayor Wagner several years following Bennett's death and they married in 1975. Mr. Wagner passed away in 1991. Phyliss Cerf Wagner, who was a cousin of actress Ginger Rogers, passed away at age 90 in November, 2006 due to complications from a fall in her home.
