      • MYSTERY GUEST: Not only was tonight's long-lost episode Louis Untermeyer's swan-song, it was also the first of three "WML?" appearances by actress Celeste Holm. Her two other appearances -- as a guest panelist on EPISODE #306 of April 15, 1956 and as a mystery guest on EPISODE #446 of January 4, 1959 -- are more fortunate in that they still exist on kinescope today. As for Miss Holm's mystery guest spot tonight, it had been nearly a year since she appeared in the role of "Karen Richards" in Bette Davis' 1950 comeback film "All About Eve." A month from tonight's show, on April 15, 1951, Miss Holm appeared as a guest on "The Colgate Comedy Hour" on the proverbial "other network," NBC; that night, future "WML?" mystery guest Tony Martin was the host, and the comedy team of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were also featured. - W-B (2008)

      • Billboard Magazine, which occasionally reviewed episodes of What's My Line?, made no reference to the dismissal of Louis Untermeyer in their current issue covering this immediate time frame. In a later review of EPISODE #45, they said he was "sorely missed." - cpdelta (2004)

      • This is Louis Untermeyer's final episode. He was fired under the "communist red scare" of the times. - Suzanne (2004)

        "mr u will not be missed
        who as an anthologist
        sold the many on the few
        not excluding mr u"

        This "disrespectful" poem was written by E. E. Cummings (e. e. cummings) as a way to poke fun at Louis Untermeyer (1895-1977). Untermeyer's influential 1919 anthology, "Modern American Poetry," omitted some of the poetic innovators of the time, such as Cummings (1894-1962), William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) and Marianne Moore (1887-1972), but included three poems written by Untermeyer himself and one poem written by Untermeyer's wife, Jean Starr Untermeyer. Untermeyer's third anthology edition in 1925 included the work of Cummings and the overlooked modern poets. - Suzanne (2006)

      • Per Gil Fates' handwritten logs, no kinescope of this episode exists. It was destroyed by CBS before Gil Fates noticed the destruction policy in 1952 and began saving the kinescopes. Only about 10 episodes exist from February 1950 to July 1952. - Suzanne (2004)
