Episode Summary

EDIT
EPISODE #362
AIRED:
Game 1: The Ziegfeld Girls (1957 Ziegfeld Follies Girls) - "Showgirls in Current Ziegfeld Follies" - salaried; the panel was blindfolded but the regular questioning format was used; The Ziegfeld Girls members who appeared in full costume were

Barbara Hall spokeswoman
Roberta Brown
Mickey Miller
Ann (or Anne) Drake (b. 6/22/1930)
Nancy Westbrook
Charlotte Foley
Denise Colette (7/8/1931 - 11/21/2005)
Gloria Christie

[Side Note: It has often been rumored (and listed on various web pages) that the Barbara Hall seen on tonight's episode was the woman who would become Barbara Feldon, the actress. However, this is not the case. The reports are in error. The Barbara Hall who appeared tonight on "What's My Line?" was definitely not the same person who would become Barbara Feldon. While it is true that Barbara Feldon's birth name was Barbara Hall and that she purportedly also danced for Ziegfeld in her early professional career, the similarities end there. The woman who sat next to John Daly tonight neither looked nor sounded anything like the famous actress of "Get Smart" fame. Barbara Hall is such a common name that there are 3 actresses listed on www.IBDb.com (Internet Broadway Database) and 9 women listed on www.IMDb.com (Internet Movie Database) who all have the same name. It is simply a coincidence. - Suzanne (2007)]
