    • FLIP REPORT: John flipped five cards for the final contestant after Robert Q. Lewis guessed that she was Marilyn Monroe's dramatic coach at two down. The line had already been guessed during the free guess segment, but John had the panel play the regular game to try to guess exactly why Miss Forman was in town. There was initially some confusion as to whether they were to simply ask questions or if he wanted them to make a flat-out guess as to the identity of the star she was coaching. Ultimately, this mattered little, given how quickly the name "Marilyn Monroe" was mentioned. The panel had already been suspecting an appearance by Marilyn Monroe, or someone with a connection to her, as her name was mentioned during the mystery guest segment as well. For the record, Marilyn Monroe never made an appearance on "WML?" during its 17.5 year run. - agent_0042 (2008)

      CINECON 41: Lee Meriwether was a guest at the 2005 Cinecon Film Festival, which was held from September 1-5, 2005, in Hollywood, California. During dinner at Musso and Frank's Grill, I was delighted to sit beside her. She informed me that she had been searching for a "Miss America 1955" kinescope, but to no avail, because the beauty pageant kinescope had been lost for decades. When I informed her that her September 12, 1954 appearance on "WML?" existed, and that this was the very next day after her pageant win, she became enthralled. I explained that she was seen in her diamond tiara, still excited over the previous evening's festivities, seated next to the pageant's host, John Daly. She gave me her address and I sent this episode to her the next week. It was not what she was originally looking for, but she was still grateful to obtain this historical record on film from her Miss America reign. - Stan16mm (2008)
