(1) Tonight's "WML?" episode is sponsored by Polaroid Land camera. As with Contac on EPISODE #588, the sponsor's name is printed on a single rectangular board which is affixed to the front of the panel desk. Only Allstate Insurance now uses the "old" layout with the words "presents WHAT'S MY LINE?" at the bottom of the sponsor logo - and will be the last "WML?" sponsor to do so.
(2) Guest panelist Darren McGavin would gain fame in the 1970's as investigative newspaper reporter "Carl Kolchak," first in a series of "Night Stalker" TV-movies and then the 1974-1975 TV series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker." His co-star in the cult classic was Simon Oakland who played his editor, "Tony Vincenzo." Mr. Oakland never appeared on "WML?" either as a panelist or as a mystery guest - and in any case, was of no relation to Sue Oakland who made frequent guest panelist appearances on "WML?" in 1966 and 1967. McGavin will also appear, albeit uncredited, as a reporter standing at the desk in the pilot for the ill-fated 2005 network revival of "The Night Stalker." - W-B
