Episode Summary

EDIT
EPISODE #290
AIRED:

Game 1: Lt. and Mrs. Vernon Post & Lt. and Mrs. David Baxendale - "Salvation Army Band" (as Mystery Guest Quartet, and the panel is blindfolded, but the "regular contestant" questioning format was used; salaried; after their game, they stand and play the classic holiday song "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" on their 4 brass instruments)

Game 2: Miss Sylvette de Aldrey - "What's My Line? Panelist in Puerto Rico" (salaried; very pretty; from San Juan, Puerto Rico; in her country, the panel show is called "Juego Dodge," which translates from Spanish to English as "Dodge Game" and is the top TV show; after her game, she joins the panel when Arlene invites her to do so, and plays the mystery guest round, but excuses herself from playing the final game and explains that she has met the contestant)

Game 3: Peter Lind Hayes (6/25/1915 - 4/21/1998) & Mary Healy (4/14/1918 - 2/3/2015) (as Mystery Guest Duo) (Peter Lind Hayes appears with a prop knife through his head.)

Game 4: Johnny Marks (11/10/1909 - 9/3/1985) - "Songwriter, Wrote 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer'" (self-employed; it wasn't mentioned, but he wrote the words and music to the famous song in 1949, by adapting a verse written in 1939 by his brother-in-law, Robert L. May, for a Montgomery Ward department store promotional children's book; from New York, NY)
