      • (1) "WML?" PANEL WATCH: The guest panelist tonight is Sarah Palfrey, aka Sarah Palfrey Cooke, a legendary tennis player of the 1930's and 1940's. Over her long career, she won a total of 16 Grand Slam championships (11 in women's doubles and 5 in mixed doubles). She also won two singles titles at the U.S. Championships, in 1941 and again in 1945. In 1947, Sarah turned pro (professional), and in this year of 1950 she and another player, Alice Marble, successfully lobbied the United States Lawn Tennis Association (USLTA) to allow an African-American, Althea Gibson, to play at heretofore all-white tennis matches. Miss Gibson will go on to appear on "WML?" as a mystery guest on EPISODE #427 of August 10, 1958.
        (2) This was the first of a total of eight CBS "WML?" appearances by writer Abe Burrows. Between now and EPISODE #760 of April 18, 1965, Mr. Burrows will be a mystery guest twice (including tonight) and will be a guest panelist six times. At the time of his debut appearance on this evening's episode, which long ago disappeared into non-existence, Abe was the librettist for the Broadway musical "Guys and Dolls," which was made into a movie in 1955. - W-B (2008)

      • Per Gil Fates' handwritten logs, no kinescope of this episode exists. It was destroyed by CBS before Gil Fates noticed the destruction policy in 1952 and began saving the kinescopes. Only about 10 episodes exist from February 1950 to July 1952. - Suzanne (2004)

      • Mystery guest Abe Burrows is the father of director James Burrows, who was known for his work on such shows as "Mary Tyler Moore," "The Bob Newhart Show," "Best of the West," "Taxi," "Cheers," "Fraiser," "Friends," "Will & Grace" and many other pilots and series. - Garrison Skunk (2004)

      • Sarah Palfrey (9/18/1912 - 2/27/1996)

        Panel: Sarah Palfrey, Louis Untermeyer, Arlene Francis, Hal Block. Dorothy Kilgallen had the night off.
