Episode Summary

EDIT
EPISODE #491
AIRED:

Game 1: Tom Dooley, M.D. (1/17/1927 - 1/18/1961) - "Doctor / Runs Jungle Hospital in Laos" (as Mystery Guest #1 and the panel is blindfolded; the regular questioning format is used; as the doctor is signing in, he uses his left arm to support his right arm; John explains that Dr. Dooley came back to the United States for cancer surgery to remove a malignant melanoma on his chest; as the doctor exits, while shaking hands with the panel, he again supports his right arm with his left arm, and this was probably due to decreased strength in his right arm as a result of his August 1959 skin cancer surgery on his chest; John gives Dr. Dooley a donation check to MEDICO, Inc., for $5,000 from the Damon Runyon Fund; the doctor is appreciative and also requests donations from the panel members and the home viewers; Dooley supplies MEDICO's address for the purpose of mailing in charitable contributions; the doctor states that he plans to return to Laos in three weeks; historically, we know that he did return to Indochina, but then was forced to return to the U.S. shortly before his death; sadly, fourteen months after tonight's "WML?" episode, the humanitarian doctor succumbed to his cancer at age 34)

Game 2: Miss Diana Tessler - "Makes Wigs, Toupees & Hair Pieces" (salaried; left-handed; she works for Hairline, Inc.; from New York, NY)

Game 3: Walter Brennan (7/25/1894 - 9/21/1974) (as Mystery Guest #2) . .
