  • Notes

    • (1) "WML?" SPONSOR WATCH: This week, the main sponsor being displayed on the panel desk is Remington electric shavers.
      (2) A LITTLE DETAIL - CONFIRMED: During her intro of Bennett, Arlene mentions his height as 6' 1" - which confirms IMDb's assertions of how tall he stood. Miss Francis also mentioned that Bennett's wife, Newsday columnist Phyllis Fraser Cerf, stood 5' 3" tall. Also, Mr. Cerf's jacket is darker in tint than the one he wore last week, but lighter than the jacket worn by Steve Allen this evening.
      (3) MYSTERY GUEST EVA GABOR: Tonight is the first of three mystery guest appearances by the Gabor sister who, over the years, would be referred to as "the Gabor with talent." Besides her aforementioned 1966 mystery guest spot in tandem with her "Green Acres" co-star Eddie Albert, Eva was a mystery guest on EPISODE #389 of November 17, 1957. For her spot this evening, Miss Gabor's nameplate on the panel moderator's desk is set in the customary Title Gothic Condensed No. 11 font.
      (4) "WML?" CREDITS CRUNCH WATCH: GSN's foolhardy fondness for "crunching" the end credits once more violently manifested itself to the ever-abused viewing audience when the cable and satellite channel showed this episode on June 17, 2008.
      (5) Following the June 17, 2008 airing of tonight's show, GSN ran an edition of "I've Got a Secret" which originated "live from New York" on May 23, 1966. Host Steve Allen started out without his usual desk, due to the fact that the first contestant, Harold Bierack (spelling approximate), was accompanied by about twenty-five women; Harold's secret was that he had been the "best man" at all their weddings -- except for one couple who was slated to be married on June 5, 1966. The desk for the regular panel of Betsy Palmer, Bill Cullen, Bess Myerson and Henry Morgan, however, remained in place, and for the second contestants' game and celebrity guest Hugh O'Brian's segment, the host's desk returned to its rightful spot on set designer Ronald Baldwin's "IGAS" set. - W-B (2008)
