  • Notes

    • As the old saying goes, "close" only counts in hand grenades and horseshoes. However, the panel wasn't playing either of those games this evening. Even though they were close in all the regular games, if it weren't for the mystery guest round they would have gone "0" for the night. In the first game, they did figure out that Mr. Haly, not Daly, worked in the circus. Unfortunately, they never did guess that he was a strongman with Ringling Brothers. In the second game, Martin correctly figured out that the contestant had something to do with baseball gloves. Unfortunately, Martin incorrectly guessed that the contestant sold gloves, which was wrong, because the contestant designed gloves. The panel had a better time of it in the mystery guest round as they correctly identified Gordon and Sheila MacRae. Gordon and Sheila were on the show to promote their current engagement at the Waldorf. They showed why they were one of the great musical/comedy acts of the era when they treated the panel, as well as the audience, to their excellent impressions of Perry Como and Dinah Shore. Unfortunately, the panel's good luck was not carried over into the final game. They ran out of time with the female jazz drummer just as they were starting to get close. As a result, she won the full prize by default. Perhaps next week they will hit things dead on target, instead of just being close. - Sargebri
