      • (1) This was the first and last appearance of actress, and game show panelist of the period, Ilka Chase (1900-1978). Her other game show appearances included "The Eyes Have It," the original 1950's version of "Masquerade Party" and "Keep Talking." Miss Chase will make frequent appearances on TV until the early 1970's.
        (2) MYSTERY GUEST: This was the first of a total of four appearances, all as a mystery guest, by "Mr. Sunday Night" himself, Ed Sullivan (1902-1974). There was a bit of irony to his appearance on tonight's now-lost episode, in regards to the CBS studio. In the first two years of what premiered on June 20, 1948 as "Toast of the Town," the show was based in the same theatre, CBS "Studio 51" (aka Maxine Elliott's Theatre on West 39th Street) where "WML?" was based at the time of tonight's show. It wasn't until later in 1950 that Mr. Sullivan's program moved to the base where it would remain to the end, CBS "Studio 50" on Broadway between 53rd and 54th Streets, and it wasn't until September 18, 1955 that the program's title was officially changed to "The Ed Sullivan Show," remaining as such until its last airing on June 6, 1971. On his final "WML?" appearance, EPISODE #835 of October 23, 1966, we were once more treated to a case of his show and "WML?" originating from the same studio, as the latter show's final 1966-1967 season originated from Studio 50 after switching to regular color production. - W-B (2008)

      • Per Gil Fates' handwritten logs, no kinescope of this episode exists. It was destroyed by CBS before Gil Fates noticed the destruction policy in 1952 and began saving the kinescopes. Only about 10 episodes exist from February 1950 to July 1952. - Suzanne (2004)

        Ilka Chase (4/8/1900 - 2/15/1978)

        Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Louis Untermeyer, Ilka Chase, Hal Block. Arlene Francis had the night off.
