Episode Summary


Game 1: Mr. Cormac McGowan (4/15/1895 - 2/1978) - "House Detective" (salaried; from the Bronx, NY; a house detective is an in-house private detective who is employed by a hotel or retail store; McGowan's comment that he works at the Hotel Commodore, mixed in with John's comment of Commodore Hotel, was barely audible over the applause and background panel chatter; for the record, the Hotel Commodore was located on 42nd Street between Lexington Avenue & Park Avenue in New York City)

Game 2: Mrs. Linda Stone - "Housewife" (from the Bronx, NY; it's a wonder the panel got this one, because John said that she was "self-employed" when she is actually "unemployed"!)

Game 3: Artie Shaw (5/23/1910 - 12/30/2004) (as Mystery Guest)

Game 4: William Ulman - "Exterminator" (salaried; from Brooklyn, NY)

A backup profession was listed in Gil Fates' notes for a high school principal, who eventually appeared on the "lost" EPISODE #7 of May 10, 1950. - Suzanne (2004)
