  • Notes

    • (1) BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN & ERIN GO BRAGH: After skipping tonight's show in 2005 for the Halloween special, GSN aired this episode in regular rotation on March 17, 2009 -- which fell on St. Patrick's Day.
      (2) "WML?" SPONSOR, ANNOUNCER AND PANEL WATCH: It's now been seven straight weeks that Sunbeam has sponsored the show without a break; on this night, the "award-winning panel of 'What's My Line?'" variation is once again used during the intro by substitute announcer Bern Bennett. And the little controversy (courtesy Bennett Cerf) notwithstanding, this was British-born Joan Collins' "WML?" debut -- and her only turn as a guest panelist, among the total three times the future "Dynasty" co-star was on the program. It was also Martin Gabel's third "WML?" appearance without his lovely wife Arlene Francis; the complete list of his "solo" turns can be found in the notes to EPISODE #340 of December 9, 1956.
      (3) ART CARNEY: At the time of his mystery guest appearance tonight, Mr. Carney was headlining a series of specials on "another network" (aka NBC) titled "The Art Carney Show," whose producer was onetime "WML?" guest panelist David Susskind. One such special was a production of Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" which aired on November 13, 1959.
      (4) "WML?" CREDITS CRUNCH WATCH: Following the United Airlines plug, the end credits tonight once again only go up to the art card for associate producers Bob Bach and Ann Kaminsky. And while St. Patrick's Day provides the ultimate opportunity for such things as drinking green beer and indulging in the greeting "Top o' the Morning" at every opportunity, GSN's intoxicating "credits crunch" on its March 17, 2009 airing of this episode was yet another piece of blarney served up by the cable and satellite channel.
      (5) Following the March 17, 2009 airing of tonight's show, GSN ran the October 29, 1959 edition of "To Tell the Truth," with host Bud Collyer and the panel of Polly Bergen, Robert Q. Lewis, Kitty Carlisle and Tom Poston. The first game featured the married couple of Harmon Loveless and Lola Loveless (spelling verified; both of whom have an identical twin, and their twins are married to each other, making two identical twin sisters who married two identical twin brothers; their married twins are named Herman Loveless and Lela Loveless; for 10 years, the four twins toured as a singing group; they all live together in one house that they jointly own; the men are now back at their former occupations, veterinarians for the U.S. Department of Agriculture; after the game, Herman and Lela appeared and stood on the stage with Harmon and Lola) and two sets of impostors; the second game featured Nadia Sakal (spelling approximate; a multilingual guide at the United Nations) and two impostors; and the third game featured Cadet George T. Nolde (spelling verified; the chief falconer for the U.S. Air Force Academy; he handles the care and training of 8 falcons, which is the school's mascot) and two impostors. - W-B (2009)
