    • WEDDING BELLS ARE IN THE AIR!!! This was the final show before John walked down the aisle with his second wife, Virginia Warren, the daughter of Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court from 1953 to 1969. As for the show itself, this was a fairly successful night for the panel as they went .500 for the night. In the first game, Arlene guessed that Wendy Wagner (later changed to Wende Wagner) was a skin diver, but Dorothy successfully guessed that she was a stand-in for the female leads in such underwater-themed TV series as "The Aquanauts" and "Sea Hunt." In the second game, the panel was absolutely stumped by Boots, the lady who made electric back scratchers. In the mystery guest round, Martin correctly identified Edward G. Robinson, who tried using an Irish brogue to fool the panel. Robinson was on the show to promote two things that he was involved in. The first was the 1960 film "Pepe," or as John mistakenly called it, "Pee-Pee." The second, and more serious, event was the annual Hanukah festival at Madison Square Garden. In later years, Robinson would make almost annual appearances to promote the Jewish event. Also, as Robinson was leaving the stage, he congratulated John on his upcoming nuptials. In the final game, the panel ran out of time as they were questioning the manufacturer of church steeples. As a result, Mr. Opielski won the full prize by default. However, nothing could dampen the panel's mood as they all gave John their best wishes on his coming marriage. - Sargebri
