    • FLIP REPORT: John flipped the remaining cards for the final contestant at three down because time ran out. - agent_0042 (2008)

      (1) "WML?" SPONSOR AND PANEL WATCH: This evening, the main sponsor, as displayed at pertinent points of the set, is Stopette. And with the panel introduced counterclockwise, this means that Dorothy is introducing John for the sixth time amongst the extant "WML?" episodes.
      (2) MYSTERY GUEST RHONDA FLEMING: The "Queen of Technicolor" makes her only "WML?" appearance this evening. Besides her aforementioned "Best of Broadway" appearance, Miss Fleming made two films in 1955, "Tennessee's Partner" (with frequent co-star Ronald Reagan and John Payne) and a movie that had its U.S. release the next year of 1956, "The Queen of Babylon" (with Ricardo Montalban). Only one day from tonight's show, on April 11, 1955, Miss Fleming was the celebrity guest on another Goodson-Todman offering, "The Name's the Same," from Bob & Ray's (Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding) brief run as hosts. The panel on that occasion consisted of Audrey Meadows, Roger Price, Laraine Day and Walter Slezak.
      (3) RHONDA FLEMING - PART II: In 1980, 25 years after tonight's show, Miss Fleming appeared as "Edith von Secondberg" in "The Nude Bomb" (aka "The Return of Maxwell Smart") in which Don Adams reprised his "Get Smart" role of agent "Maxwell Smart." The picture was produced by Rhonda's then-husband, movie theatre magnate Ted Mann, to whom she was married from 1978 until his death in 2001. As a side note, Mr. Adams never appeared on "WML?," though his "Get Smart" co-star, Barbara Feldon, who played "Agent 99," was a guest panelist on EPISODE #865 of June 11, 1967.
      (4) "WML?" CREDITS CRUNCH WATCH: There was a brief moment on the July 20, 2008 airing of this episode where GSN, in the spirit of the Apollo 11 moon landing which took place on July 20, 1969, 39 years prior to the repeat of tonight's show, was to have aimed for the proverbial "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" as the American Airlines "travel arrangements" plug was shown for a few short seconds in full screen, with the original sound -- but then, to everyone's horror, the cable and satellite channel tragically crashed back to earth with their justly-maligned practice of "crunching" the end credits, which still managed to show the complete production crew, even with the airline promotion.
      (5) SPEAKING OF "TNTS": The July 20, 2008 airing of tonight's show by GSN was followed by the September 17, 1952 edition of "The Name's the Same," hosted by Robert Q. Lewis, with the panel this week comprised of Abe Burrows, Joan Alexander and Meredith Willson. The celebrity guest was Melvyn Douglas. - W-B (2008)
