      • MAUREEN STAPLETON TRIBUTE: On March 19, 2006, GSN skipped this episode to air a tribute to actress Maureen Stapleton, who died on March 13, 2006. Two color episodes of the 1968-1975 syndicated version of "WML?" were aired. Both episodes featured Miss Stapleton as the mystery guest. The first one shown was from the first syndicated season, taped on January 21, 1969 and hosted by Wally Bruner, with panelists Nipsey Russell, Joanna Barnes, Bert Convy and Arlene Francis. The second episode broadcast was from the seventh and final syndicated season, taped on August 15, 1974 and hosted by Larry Blyden, with panelists Soupy Sales, Dr. Joyce Brothers, Gene Rayburn and Arlene Francis. This tribute to Miss Stapleton also preempted "Beat the Clock" which aired prior to "WML?" on GSN's B & W Overnight schedule in 2006. - W-B & Suzanne

      • In 1967, tonight's guest panelist, Betty Furness, was appointed Special Assistant for Consumer Affairs by President Lyndon B. Johnson, a post she held until the end of Johnson's presidency in 1969. Also in 1967, she married Leslie Midgley who was, at the time, executive producer of the "CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite." Their marriage lasted until her death in 1994. But her most famous latter-day work had to be her long-running stint as consumer reporter for New York station WNBC-TV, Channel 4. She joined the station in 1974 when they began their pioneering 2-hour local newscast, "NewsCenter 4," and remained there until her well-publicized and controversial dismissal in 1992. Her firing was controversial because many of her fans accused the station of ageism, since Betty was 76 years old at the time. During her run with WNBC-TV, Miss Furness also contributed regular reports to the "Today" show and hosted a Peabody Award-winning program, "Buyline: Betty Furness." - W-B

      • During the end credits, the announcer stated that this episode was prerecorded. From Gil Fates' logs, we know this episode was taped on June 17, 1962 - the same day as the live transmission of EPISODE #618. Not coincidentally, on both shows, regular panelist Dorothy Kilgallen was absent, with Faye Emerson filling in on EPISODE #618 and Betty Furness substituting for Dolly Mae tonight. - Suzanne & W-B

      • Carol Channing was adorable! What a sweet personality she has. She discussed several projects, including working with George Burns. She also passed out "diamond" bracelets to John Daly and the entire panel! This was in connection with her trademark Jule Styne song "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" from her long-running (740 performances) 1949 Broadway musical "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes." She also had a second landmark Broadway role as Dolly Levi in the musical "Hello, Dolly!" (2,844 performances!) but that debut won't be until January 16, 1964. - Suzanne
