  • Notes

    • REVIEW: This was a fairly decent evening for the panel as they batted .500 for the evening. In the first game, the panel was absolutely stumped by the women's fashion editor. Of course, it probably was understandable due to the fact that the editor was a man. After the game, it was revealed that he had something in common with Dorothy since he was a former police reporter. To add to the post-game humor, Bennett mentioned both Arlene's and Dorothy's hemlines, and asked Mr. Cobb which length was correct! Bennett also asked how much of a woman's leg was going to show in the new fashions, and then Bennett took the chance to once again criticize the sack dress in his ongoing anti-chemise campaign! The panel had better luck in the second game in spite of a boo-boo by Bennett. Bennett's mistake occurred when he said that the man had nothing to do with bull fighting, which was incorrect, so Bennett promptly got a "no." This left it for Arlene to clean up and make the correct identification. She made sure to give Bennett all the credit, though! In the mystery guest round, the panel pretty much had it nailed that the night's guest was piano virtuoso Van Cliburn. Of course, it helped that the panel knew that he was appearing the next night in New York. For the record, Dolly Mae got the correct guess. After the game, Cliburn discussed his upcoming trip to Belgium where he would be performing with the Russian Symphony. He also talked about his mother's appearance on the show ten weeks earlier. Cliburn definitely showed that he had a sense of humor as he was relating the events of his mother's night on WML. He said she enjoyed herself so much, she came home and announced that she was ready to go back again. In the final game, the panel ran out of time as they were questioning the very attractive blond nurse. The funniest part of the night came when guest panelist Tom Poston flirted with the nurse. He feigned being sick as she was making her exit and shaking his hand. Arlene promptly gave him a rap on the knuckles to bring him back in line. That definitely put a cute capper on a very fun evening. - Sargebri (2005)
