  • Notes

    • When Chuck Connors was questioning Marilyn Picard, it was determined that she needed an education to do her job. Chuck replied, "You're a trained filly." - Rick Valley (2003)

      June Allyson stumped the panel with a Tallulah Bankhead impression. Imitating Miss Bankhead's low-pitched voice appears to be the most successful choice for "throwing" the panel. - Clay in Alabama (2003)

      CHUCK CONNORS: At his height of 6 feet 5 inches, Chuck Connors dwarfed Arlene and Dorothy! When he stood between them, it was an interesting sight! Chuck Connors stated that used to play professional baseball. In fact, he said that the first challenger, Branch Rickey, had signed him up! Chuck also mentioned having played football. John Daly chatted at length with Branch Rickey about the formation of a third major league for baseball, the Continental League. Mr. Rickey was certain that this new 8-team league would be playing games by 1961, since he had obtained the required number of signatures and signups. History tells us that "the majors reacted with alarm. They could not confront the new venture directly without raising antitrust concerns, so they preempted the new league's prime franchises in the expansion of 1961 - 1962, an expansion Rickey had long advocated." The proposed league never became reality. In an August 1960 agreement with the major leagues, the Continental League abandoned plans to join the American League and the National League. The Continental League ended without having played a game. - Suzanne (2003)
