      • This was a pretty decent performance for the panel in this "dual mystery guest" version of the show with two mystery guests and only one regular contestant. Joey Bishop again appears as the guest panelist, putting in one of his usual humorous performances. In the first mystery guest round, Joey correctly identified one of America�s most respected men of the cloth, the Reverend Billy Graham. Reverend Graham was in New York to appear at Madison Square Garden for one of his many crusades. The reverend then showed his sense of humor when he said that it "took a bishop" to guess him. Joey, who is Jewish, then humorously responded by saying, "Now, if someone would please revive my mother and father." Reverend Graham also brought up his recent trip to Berlin, in which not only the free people in the Western sector went to hear his message, but also many people in the Communist East sector came to hear him, since the loudspeakers carried his message within their earshot. After the reverend left the stage, John flipped the remaining cards, due to the fact that Reverend Graham requested that all his winnings go to charity. It was also after the reverend exited that Bennett finally revealed that the reason Dolly Mae had been asking all the mystery guests if they had studied dentistry was because she was expecting the mystery guest to be Casey Stengel, who at one time had studied dentistry. This then started a humorous exchange between Bennett and Dorothy as they had a somewhat-mock argument. In the only regular game of the night, the panel was stumped by the little old lady who happened to be a top chili saleswoman. In the second mystery guest round, Arlene correctly identified Anthony Quinn. Quinn was on the show to promote the 1960 Broadway play "Becket" in which he was appearing with Sir Lawrence Olivier. Just prior to the good nights, John announced that Tony Randall would be sitting in on the panel next week. However, it was during the good nights that John and Bennett had one of their humorous exchanges when Bennett admitted his affection for John. John looked at the camera with a mock-puzzled appearance while Arlene interjected to John, "You can call him Chuckles now!" This was a reprise of the "Chuckles" jokes of EPISODE #524. Bennett told John he couldn't call him Chuckles and everybody laughed! And so ended a fine episode. - Sargebri

        As was mentioned in the post game chat, Reverend Graham had recently appeared in Berlin in front of 100,000 people, spreading the Word of God. It was mentioned that many of the people had come over from East Berlin to hear his message. Of course, one year later in 1961, things would drastically change in Berlin, as the most famous symbol of the Cold War, the Berlin Wall, was erected. The wall physically separated West Berlin from East Berlin for 28 years until it was torn down in November and December 1989. - Sargebri

      • Bennett "solves the mystery" with his educated guess! For several episodes now, Dorothy has been asking various mystery guests if they have ever studied dentistry. This is a strange question to be repeatedly asking! Finally, right before the second game tonight, Bennett states that he has figured out why Dorothy is asking this particular question! His assumption is correct, and Dorothy is none too pleased with him! She has evidently been looking for baseball great Casey Stengel as a mystery guest. Earlier in Stengel's life, he studied dentistry. - Suzanne

      • FLIP REPORT: Billy Graham donated his winnings to a charity (which was not named on the show) so John flipped all the cards. In the second game, at only four down and six to go, he also flipped all the cards for Mrs. Addie Lynch, after it appeared to him that the panel wasn't getting anywhere close to being able to identify the food she dealt with. - agent_0042

      • At the opening of this episode, Arlene said that viewers are familiar with The Cat in the Hat, and that there is a new book out by Dr. Seuss (whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel) called Green Eggs and Ham. She then goes on to say that she doesn't know about green eggs, but she does know about ham, and introduces Bennett Cerf. Bennett then walks out with a smile. Dr. Seuss wrote and illustrated numerous children's books before passing away in 1991. His books can still be found in most bookstores and libraries. - agent_0042
