  • Notes

    • REVIEW: After the previous week's perfecto, this evening was somewhat of a letdown. However, the panel still managed to hit .500 for the night. In the first game, Dorothy showed why she was such a great panelist when she figured out that little Tito was involved in the entertainment world - and then when the questioning got back to her - she figured out that he was a trapeze artist. In fact, the only mistake that really was made was when Bennett said he worked for Ringling Brothers, but he actually was with Clyde Beatty's circus. In the second game, the panel was utterly stumped by the woman who raised mice for research. After much struggling, the panel was still so far off track that John decided to call the game on the basis of time. In the mystery guest round, Bennett correctly identified entertainment legend Hermione Gingold, who used a rather hoarse, masculine voice to try to fool the panel. In fact, the voice she used put such a strain on her that when Bennett made his I.D. of her, he said that he had to do it in order for her to save her voice. Miss Gingold was on the show to promote her latest play "First Impressions." The final game was really fun as it pretty much was done as a rib on guest panelist Van Cliburn, due to the fact that the contestant was a piano tuner. As for the game itself, she won the full prize by default as the panel ran out of time. Also, just before the show went off the air for the night, John mentioned that they would be preempted the next week. The show that was preempting them was the production that Jeanne Crain promoted during her mystery guest appearance a couple of weeks earlier, a live presentation of "Meet Me in St. Louis." - Sargebri (2005)

      PFIZER: It was announced after the second game that Mrs. Coufos worked for Pfizer. Of course, several years later, Pfizer would make probably one of the biggest discoveries in history as they came up with what has become one of the more popular treatments for male impotence, Viagra. - Sargebri (2005)

      BEST BEHAVIOR: For once, the WML? studio audience behaved itself. Early in the final game, Van Cliburn suggested that perhaps Barbara Martin performed in some way, such as playing the piano. Usually, the WML? audiences tend to murmur and applaud if a panelist guesses an element of the contestant's occupation. Tonight, however, no one made a peep, and her connection to the piano wasn't revealed until the end of the round. - Garrison Skunk (2005)
