  • Notes

    • GUEST HOST BENNETT CERF: This is Bennett Cerf's first and only appearance as a guest host on "What's My Line?" He filled in while John Daly was in Europe for twelve days with his job with ABC News. Bennett seemed very uncomfortable and joked that he would be glad to get back to his regular panel seat next week. Bennett didn't particularly do a bad job, he just didn't do a stellar job. He basically came across as "sweet," although on a few occasions his sarcastic - and at times rude - sense of humor emerged. His self-admitted nervousness prevented him from interacting more with the panel, so his moderator performance was basically methodical, dry and businesslike. With more practice, he probably could have been an effective moderator. Since he's our Bennett, we'll give him an "A" for effort. - Suzanne (2005)

      GSN aired this special rare "guest host" episode on April 2, 2003 and again on July 10, 2005. The 2003 airing was shown out of episode sequence order as part of an April Fool's Day stunt that GSN inexplicably pulled. (The calendar air date of April 2, 2003 was actually their programming day of April 1, 2003.) On that date, GSN bounced ahead a year in time to air this episode. After it was shown, GSN then bounced back to EPISODE #326. When they then worked forward to this episode in May 2003, it was skipped, causing many fans to miss it. On the same 2003 April Fool's Day trick, they also altered the programming of "To Tell the Truth." In 2005, thankfully, the "WML?" programming order was not switched. - Suzanne (2005)

      A Brief History of the Kaiser/Fraser Automobile by John MacDonald: In 1945, California industrialist Henry J. Kaiser partnered with automobile executive Joe Frazer to respond to the American consumer's postwar demand for cars, mounting the last real American challenge to Detroit's Big Three automakers. They produced such cars as the 1949 Kaiser Vagabond, 1948 Frazer Manhattan, 1953 Kaiser Manhattan two-door sedan, the Dragon sedans, Henry J compact coupes and some modified Henry J race cars. The Kaiser and Frazer Manhattan series were mainstays of the company lineup. Kaiser and Frazer automobiles were manufactured at Kaiser's Willow Run, Michigan factory from 1946 to 1955, when declining sales forced the closing of Kaiser's domestic operations. At that time production was moved to Argentina and Brazil, where the company turned out a series of sedans, trucks and Jeeps until the company was sold to a combine of Ford and Renault owners in the late 1960s. - Suzanne (2005)
