  • Notes

    • REVIEW: The panel did a somewhat decent job and probably would have won more than one game if not for a technicality. In the first game, Bennett should have been given credit for two correct guesses. He correctly figured out that Joe Foss was a governor, but unfortunately could not identify which state. The other panelists then either passed or made incorrect guesses. Guest panelist Laraine Day correctly guessed that it was one of the Dakotas, but then named North Dakota, the wrong one. That did, however, open the door for Bennett, and he finally figured out that Mr. Foss was the governor of South Dakota. Dorothy also mentioned the fact that Mr. Foss was a Congressional Medal of Honor winner for his service in World War II where he was an ace in the Pacific. In the second game, Dorothy correctly guessed that the contestant was a dresser for chorus girls. However, when she made her guess, it was after her turn and the contestant won the full prize. Dorothy did make up for her goof in the mystery guest round when she figured out, with a huge assist from Bennett, that the mystery guest was British music hall legend Gracie Fields. Unfortunately, the panel ran out of time in the final game, so the used locomotive salesman wound up winning the full prize by default. - Sargebri (2005)

      JOE FOSS: As was mentioned earlier, four and one-half years after this broadcast aired, Joe Foss would take another high profile job when he became the commissioner of the fledgling American Football League on November 30th, 1959. Foss held the AFL position until April 1966 when he was replaced by Oakland Raiders general manager Al Davis, who then served until July 1966. Foss helped to make the league into a viable alternative for the older National Football League. - Sargebri (2005)

      JOE FOSS: Joe Foss was a celebrated WWII pilot and later in 1959 became the first commissioner of the American Football League, which eventually merged with the NFL. - Glenn (2005)
