    • WELCOME HOME DOLLY MAE!!! After two weeks in France, Dorothy has returned to America safe and sound. Immediately, the WML producers tried pulling a fast one on her by having the customs inspector who checked her luggage appear on the show. Dorothy was the first one to question him, showing no signs of recognition. Finally, it was Bennett who made the identification. Unfortunately, the panel was totally stumped by the bullet proof vest maker/tester. In fact, John threw in the towel and flipped all the cards because he felt the panel was way off track. In the mystery guest round, Fred almost pulled off the same feat as he did the previous week, when he blurted out who the mystery guest was. At one point, he thought the guest was former mystery guest Jane Froman, but when his turn came up again, he did correctly identify the mystery guests as the lovely McGuire Sisters. Unfortunately, the panel ran out of time in the final game and the swimming pool builder won the full prize by default. - Sargebri (2005)

      MCGUIRE SISTERS: At the time of their appearance as mystery guests, the McGuire Sisters were still appearing on Arthur Godfrey's show. It was quite amazing, especially since Dorothy McGuire had contributed to events that led to the firing of Godfrey's biggest discovery, Julius LaRosa. As it would be revealed years later, Dorothy and Julius were having an affair while Dorothy's husband was in the military service in Korea. Godfrey warned them to stop, but the affair continued. It was at this point that Godfrey decided to fire LaRosa. However, nothing happened to the McGuires. The incident would cause Godfrey's career to go into decline due to the fact that the public thought he was angry at LaRosa for hiring an agent. But in reality, Godfrey decided to take the bullet rather than have a scandal rock his happy family. - Sargebri (2005)
