      • (1) MYSTERY GUEST - PART I: A little less than one month from tonight's show, on May 10, 1951, Dagmar recorded a now-infamous duet with Frank Sinatra, who was then at the absolute nadir of his recording career. The tune in question was "Mama Will Bark," with dog imitations by Donald Bain. It was released on Columbia single #(4-)39425 on June 11, 1951, backed with a song that in later years became a Sinatra standard, "I'm a Fool to Want You." After his 1953 comeback with his Best Supporting Oscar-winning role as "Private Angelo Maggio" in "From Here to Eternity" and his concomitant recording comeback with "Young-at-Heart" (Capitol (F)2703), Sinatra would forever after cite "Mama Will Bark" as "Exhibit A" in what he would characterize as a concerted effort by Columbia's then-powerful A&R chief, Mitch Miller, to ruin his career. - W-B (2008)
        (2) MYSTERY GUEST - PART II: Dagmar was the only person connected with the early late-night show "Broadway Open House" to make an appearance on "WML?" The show's host, Jerry Lester, never made any appearances of any kind on the show. However, a few years later, he was a recurring panelist on another Goodson-Todman show, "The Name's the Same." Meanwhile, another "Broadway Open House" regular, NBC staff announcer Wayne Howell, was an announcer on some weeks of the syndicated "WML?" during the 1972-1973 season, which was Larry Blyden's first year as host. - W-B (2008 & 2009)

      • A very good summary of Dagmar's career appeared in Huntington's Quarterly in 1999. The first paragraph reads:

        A nationwide poll of editors voted her "the most photogenic girl on TV." Alfred Eisenstadt came to Huntington to photograph her for the cover of Life magazine. When J. Edgar Hoover asked for her exact dimensions she replied, "I refuse to answer on the grounds that it might incinerate me."

        Also, a short biography with a large image of Dagmar on the front cover of the July 16, 1951 issue of Life magazine can be found here:

      • 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)

        Dagmar (born Virginia Ruth Egnor) was the star of the 1950 TV series "Broadway Open House." She was later renamed Jeanne (pronounced Jennie or Jenny) Lewis. - Suzanne (2003)

        Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Bennett Cerf, Arlene Francis, Hal Block. - Suzanne (2008)
