    • REVIEW: After a slow start, the panel really came on strong this particular evening. In the first game, Dorothy figured out that the first contestant had something to do with pork. Unfortunately, the panel never quite figured out that she was a pork buyer and she wound up winning the full prize... whole hog. In the second game, thanks to an inadvertent assist from John, Arlene correctly figured out that the second contestant was a butler. As for the mystery guest round, Bennett correctly identified Rosemary Clooney, who had just returned from Portugal where her then husband, Jose Ferrer, was filming a picture. Rounding out the night, Dorothy was given credit for a correct guess in the fourth game, even though she didn't identify which comic strip Mrs. Strom wrote. Of course, her strip "Brenda Starr," which she created under the pen name of Dale Messick, is still going strong today in the capable hands of June Brigman and Mary Schmich. - Sargebri (2005)

      FERRER: As Rosie mentioned, she and her husband Jose Ferrer had recently become parents to a baby boy, who at the time was almost three months old. That baby, Miguel Ferrer, would later grow up and follow in his parents footsteps and become an actor in his own right. Miguel is currently cast on the show "Crossing Jordan" as "Deputy/Chief Medical Examiner Garret Macy." Miguel also plays drums for a rock/comedy band called the Jenerators, which also features Billy Mumy, who was famous for playing "Will Robinson" on "Lost in Space," and David Joliffe who played "Bernie" on the classic classroom drama "Room 222." Also, Rosie had a younger brother named Nick Clooney, who also went into entertainment. Nick was a weatherman for a few years in Los Angeles at KNBC TV Channel 4. He also hosted a 1974-1975 game show entitled "The Moneymaze" and for five years, was the on-air host for AMC, American Movie Classics. Nick also had a son, George, born 9 years after Rosie's WML appearance. George Clooney is, of course, one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood. He starred first in the hit 1984-1985 medical drama "E/R" and later moved on to films with hits such as the 2001 remake of the Rat Pack caper flick "Ocean's Eleven" and "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" in 2002. - Sargebri (2005)

      BOMB TESTING: As John mentioned, he would be heading for Yucca Flats to witness an above ground atomic bomb test. Eight years after this episode aired, all above ground nuclear testing would be halted as a result of the Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963. This treaty was meant to help ease tensions, especially after the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. Also, it was meant to help protect the environment and keep radiation from spreading into the atmosphere. However, the treaty did not ban below ground testing of weapons, which continued until September 23, 1992. The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty now prevents further testing in the United States. - Sargebri (2005)
