      • Bennett: And speaking of endearing, here's our endearing panel moderator, the only man who can make a simple explanation to this panel sound like a whole page from Webster's Unabridged Dictionary -- Mr. John Charles Daly.

    • NOTES (6)

      • After the previous week's dismal performance, the panel bounced back rather nicely and almost scored a perfecto. In fact, Dorothy really shined this particular evening as she got the first two contestants. In the first game, Dolly Mae got off to a fast start as she correctly guessed that the first mystery guest was none other than Kenneth Battelle, who was not only Dorothy's and Arlene's hairdresser, but was also the personal hairdresser for First Lady Jackie Kennedy. In fact, Dorothy seemed somewhat surprised and said that Kenneth did a good job in disguising his voice. In the second game, Dorothy once again showed her greatness when she correctly figured out that the second contestant was a judge. Also, during the post game chat, it was revealed that Judge Warberg was a former Miss America contestant who had represented Idaho in the 1952 contest. The only game in which Dorothy didn't have a correct guess was the mystery guest round. In that one, Bennett had the honor of correctly identifying his good friends, and former guest panelists, Peter Lind Hayes and Mary Healy. Peter really had everyone going with his phony cockney accent and Mary was her usual charming self. The two of them were on the show to promote their soon-to-be-published book. Also, after the game, Peter wowed the audience with his dead-on impression of President Kennedy. Unfortunately, the panel's good luck ran out in the final game which was highlighted by a rather unusually frisky Tony flirting with the shapely female contractor. Her game ran out of time, so she won the full prize by default. However, when the tally was made, this was a night that belonged to Dolly Mae. - Sargebri

      • FLIP REPORT: There was an unusually large amount of time for the questioning of the final challenger. The panel still ran out of time, however, at four down, so John flipped all the remaining cards. - agent_0042

      • In the 1970's, tonight's mystery guests, Peter Lind Hayes and Mary Healy, appeared in a series of radio ads for Finnair, the national airline for Finland. - W-B
