Episode Summary

EDIT
EPISODE #464
AIRED:
Game 1: Franklin Heller (8/15/1911 - 7/8/1997) - "Director of "What's My Line?" (Panel thinks he's in Europe)" (as Mystery Guest #1 and the panel is blindfolded but the regular questioning format is used; salaried; Dorothy Kilgallen guessed his identity when the cards were at $30 down; in the post game chat, Heller mentioned that he was back from Europe, having visited London, England; Italy; Spain; and Paris, France; while in London, Heller said he had a "charming evening with Eamonn and his lovely wife"; in recapping the events that Heller had missed, John Daly mentioned the intruder from the previous episode and sarcastically joked that the panel had been so-so while he had been brilliant; upon exit, Heller did not shake hands with the panel, instead, he exited behind John to the viewer's right; from New York)

Game 2: Harold Woehr - "Makes Blankets for Cows" (salaried; he is the Vice-President of R. Lackie and Company which markets the cow blankets under the trade name of "Can't Come Off"; John detailed three main uses for the blankets: sick cows; show cows in competition; and cows in transit; from Milwaukee, Wisconsin; he won the full $50 by stumping the panel)

Game 3: Pat Suzuki (b. 9/22/1930) (as Mystery Guest #2) Dorothy Kilgallen guessed her identity when the cards were at $15 down. She used a Southern accent to try to fool the panel.

      • FLIP REPORT: Tonight, John did not increase any dollar amounts won by flipping cards for any of the contestants. - agent_0042 (2009)

      • (1) GSN AIRDATE HISTORY: After skipping tonight's show in 2005, GSN aired this episode in regular rotation on February 16, 2009.
        (2) "WML?" SPONSOR AND ANNOUNCER WATCH: The primary sponsor tonight is Kellogg's. And though Dorothy sat on the far end of the panel desk (towards the viewer's left side) this evening, announcer Hal Simms once again used the "award-winning 'What's My Line?' panel" variation of the intro.
        (3) A BLAST FROM THE PAST: After the first game with "WML?" director Franklin Heller was over and the post-game discussions ended, Mr. Heller exited the stage from behind Mr. Daly and towards the viewer's right side -- an exit which had last been applied for regular contestants in 1955. Incidentally, Mr. Heller was credited as the director tonight during the end credits; it is not known whether S. Robert Rowe (who had helmed the prior two episodes while Mr. Heller was on vacation) was at the director's chair at the outset of this edition.
        (4) PAT SUZUKI: This was the singer/actress' only "WML?" appearance. Besides her work on Broadway's "Flower Drum Song" (as noted in the lower-third overlay), Miss Suzuki in 1959 appeared in two editions of "The Ed Sullivan Show" (on January 18, 1959 and March 1, 1959). In 1976, she co-starred in the very short-lived sitcom "Mr. T and Tina" in the role of "Michi." As a side note, another co-star of "Mr. T and Tina" was June Angela, who had the distinction of being the only member of the "Short Circus" troupe from the children's TV series "The Electric Company" to have appeared on that show for its entire 1971-1977 run.
        (5) "WML?" CREDITS CRUNCH WATCH: Following the travel arrangements plug for United Airlines, the end credits (with Mr. Heller once more back at the helm) only go up to the art card slide crediting set designer Willard Levitas. There was no substitute, however, for GSN's insidious and nefarious "crunching" of the screen which the cable and satellite channel once again imposed on its hapless viewing audience on its February 16, 2009 airing of this episode.
        (6) Following GSN's February 16, 2009 airing of tonight's show, the cable and satellite channel reran the September 16, 1958 edition of "To Tell the Truth," hosted by Bud Collyer, with the panel of cross-examiners Polly Bergen, Jackie Cooper, Kitty Carlisle and Hy Gardner. The first game featured sales expert Elmer Wheeler (who wrote the famous motto, "Don't sell the steak, sell the sizzle") and two impostors; the second game featured Victor Kugler (who helped hide Anne Frank and her family during the Nazi occupation of Holland in World War II) and two impostors; and the third game featured Mary Hearn (or Hearne or Herne; approximate spelling; personal representative to His Highness the Maharajah of Cooch Behar in West Bengal) and two impostors. - W-B (2009)

      • GSN'S POKER ROYALE: This episode was last shown on GSN on August 17, 2003. For its next normal rotation, on September 30, 2005, it was skipped. Instead, shown was a special 1-hour episode of GSN's "Poker Royale" which also preempted "Beat the Clock." - Suzanne (2005)

        I love this panel! They're just so CUTE! Oh, I do believe Dorothy broke some censorship laws by wearing that dress! WOW!
        CAMERA 3...CLOSEUP ON MR. HELLER
        Thank you Bennett for giving us a terrific laugh! After it is established that the first contestant WAS connected to "What's My Line?", BC is SURE he's got it! "Good heavens, could you be Gil Fates??" (LOL! Don't turn away or you'll miss John's laugh!) After Mr. Heller is discovered, Bennett asks, "Did you miss us?" - fiveninegal (2003)

      • Database verified! John Daly mentions that this is EPISODE #464. - Suzanne (2003)

        Pat Suzuki promoted her Broadway play "Flower Drum Song." - Suzanne (2003)

        Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Eamonn Andrews, Arlene Francis, Bennett Cerf.
