  • Notes

    • FRED MAKES A PUN! But, as is typical of much of Fred's humor, it's cerebral and whizzes past everyone - panel, guest, audience, even John. Fred is on the trail of the occupation of Miss Miller, and he has determined that if a woman has a lot of this on her, she would be more attractive to men. Assuming it's cologne or perfume, Fred asks, "If she had a lot on her, would we be able to smell it?" John answers "No," and flips the card for the first "no" of the round, showing us a FIVE on the flip card. Fred, in an aside, mutters, "Wrong Channel." If that's not a reference to CHANEL #5, the perfume, I'll eat my Stopette. Poof! - Lee McIntyre (2005)

      REVIEW: The streak of lousy performances by the panel continued with this episode. In the first game, the panel came close to guessing what the occupation of the first contestant was when they figured out that he worked in some capacity at San Quentin prison. Unfortunately, they never did figure out that he was a parole officer. In the second game, Dorothy figured out that the contestant dealt with money, but just like the first game, that's as far as it went. They never did figure out that she supervised the burning of old, worn out bills. The lone bright spot came in the mystery guest round when Dorothy, with a huge assist from Bennett, was able to identify Jose Ferrer. After the game, Jose brought up the fact that his lovely wife, Rosemary Clooney, had been on the show several weeks earlier. Unfortunately, the panel ran out of time just as Dorothy narrowed down the pretty newlywed's profession to teaching. Bennett figured out that she was a dance instructor, but by the time he mentioned it, it was already too late as John had flipped the remaining cards over and she won $50 by default on the basis of time. - Sargebri (2005)

      BETTY WHITE: As Fred mentioned during his introduction of Betty White, she was about to start working on another Goodson-Todman panel show entitled "Make the Connection," which will premiere on July 7, 1955 on NBC. On that show, a celebrity panel had to figure out the connection between two people, whether it was working in the same building, going to the same college, or some other set of circumstances where their lives had crossed paths. The show also featured guest star appearances. Besides Betty, other panelists included Gloria DeHaven, Eddie Bracken and Gene Klavan. It was hosted at different times by future "Wide World of Sports" host Jim McKay and also by future "Match Game" host Gene Rayburn. The short-lived summer replacement show only aired for about three months before its run ended on September 29, 1955. - Sargebri (2005)
