  • Notes

    • REVIEW: After the previous week's shutout, the panel had a remarkable improvement as they won three out of four games this episode. In fact, they were somewhat close in the first game and if it weren't for the time running out, they might have had a perfecto. In the first game, Arlene correctly guessed that the young lady from Seattle was an elevator operator at the Space Needle. Most likely, the fact she was from Seattle had something to do with the panel making the correct guess. In the second game, guest panelist Merv Griffin correctly guessed that the contestant was a bridal gown maker. However, some credit should go to the studio audience who gasped during the conference when Arlene mentioned bridal gowns. In the mystery guest round, Merv again was successful when he correctly identified James Mason. Mr. Mason was on the show to promote the film Lolita, which featured Sue Lyon in the title role and also featured Shelley Winters and Peter Sellers as members of the supporting cast. In the final game, the police sergeant for the Irish National Police won a very nice wedding present for his son as he won the full prize by default when the panel ran out of time. And so, even though they lost the final game, the panel probably made the missing Dorothy feel better with their great performance. - Sargebri (2006)

      KILGALLEN WATCH!!! We were told that Dorothy was absent this evening due to illness. On the previous two episodes over the past two weeks, she was obviously inebriated. Tonight, she might have been in such an impaired condition as to prevent her from appearing on the panel. Everything will come to a head in March 1963 when she will once again check into the LeRoy Sanitarium to try to combat her various addictions. - Sargebri (2006)

      As James Mason mentioned, he was on the show to promote his latest picture, "Lolita," which was based on the Vladimir Nabokov novel of the same name. Of course, the subject matter of the film, an older man obsessed with an adolescent girl, was highly controversial in 1962 and is still so even by 2006 standards. - Sargebri (2006)
