  • Notes

    • Imogene Coca promoted her dramatic role on CBS television which we were told will air on April 11, 1956. The name of the production was not given. Most likely, they were referring to her upcoming role on "The United States Steel Hour" production of "The Funny Heart." After her game, Imogene donated her game winnings to the Red Cross. The mention of Imogene's former partner referred to Sid Caesar. - Suzanne (2005)

      Bennett Cerf also made occasional guest appearances on other game shows, such as PASSWORD and MATCH GAME. - stopette (2005)

      This is Henry Morgan's first appearance on WML. He won't be back again until EPISODE #806 on March 6, 1966, which is after Dorothy Kilgallen's death. There was no love lost between Henry Morgan and Dorothy Kilgallen. Here is an excerpt from Henry Morgan's autobiography, published in 1994, titled "Here's Morgan!" and subtitled "The Original Bad Boy of Broadcasting." He does not mention the date that this conversation took place.

      (begin quote)

      On "Secret" I played, ha, ha, the heavy. I was the Dorothy Kilgallen, but with laughs. One night I wore a striped seersucker suit to a party where Miss Kilgallen said, en passant, "Where'd you get the mattress ticking, Henry?" "Gee, Dorothy," I said, "you know a lot more about mattresses than I do." She never spoke to me again, and that was a very nice thing to happen to a young man. (end quote)
