      • Rare ROY HARRIS reference: Roy Harris was a prominent boxer who once fought for the world heavyweight championship. He came from Cut And Shoot, Texas and was credited with putting that small east Texas town on the map. During the first game, guest panelist Martin Gabel asked the contestant, Lou Puckett from Cut And Shoot, if her work was in any way connected to Cut And Shoot's "famous son" Roy Harris. The contestant replied "no." - Steven Herbert (2005)

        The panel had a pretty good performance this evening, especially Bennett, who made both correct guesses. In the first game, Bennett correctly guessed that the lady from Cut and Shoot, Texas was a plumber. The panel wasn't so lucky in the second game. They did get close, though, as they figured out that the rather elderly lady had something to do with making a product for horses' tails, but they failed to guess that she made artificial tails for horses. The panel had better luck in the mystery guest round as Bennett correctly identified old friend, and sometimes guest panelist, Shelley Berman. Shelley was in town to do summer stock theatre and decided that as long as he was in town, that he would visit his friends on the panel. During the good nights, John told Arlene that he had heard that she would be going out to the upcoming Democratic convention, as well as himself. Arlene then told John that she hoped she would see him there. She then jokingly pleaded, "Get me in, John." And so ended a nice installment of What's My Line? - Sargebri (2005)

      • Shelley Berman was cute! He used funny accents and replies. He was able to fool the panel for quite a while until Bennett Cerf finally nabbed him. As of 2003, he is still performing his comic act and has also been teaching for eighteen years! He's got more energy than most! Visit his web page here:


        Check out his message board! We've kept him apprised of his WML appearances and he's been grateful. Catch his act if he appears in a town near you. - Suzanne (2005)

      • During the questioning of guest #2, Dorothy had it narrowed down to the "rear end" of the horse. Bennett then interjects softly, "I was thinking of John." Of course, he was thinking "horse's ass" and everybody laughed. - Suzanne (2005)

        This episode was prerecorded. From Gil Fates' logs, we know this episode was taped on July 3, 1960. - Suzanne (2005)

        Panel: Arlene Francis, Martin Gabel, Dorothy Kilgallen, Bennett Cerf.
