      • This night was a marked improvement for the panel over the previous week as they went "2 for 3" this evening. Unfortunately, things didn't get off to a very good start as the panel was utterly stumped by legendary Hollywood executive Daryl F. Zanuck. Mr. Zanuck was on the show to promote the highly anticipated World War II drama "The Longest Day." Appropriately, the game was a lengthy one, as the panel guessed every single occupation except Mr. Zanuck's, all to no avail. Fortunately, the second game went a little quicker as Arlene, pretty much by accident, correctly guessed that the young lady from Wyoming was a jockey. In the mystery guest round, the panel also made short work of the recently crowned Miss America for 1963, Jacqueline Mayer. John later explained that the panel had originally expected her the previous Sunday night, which was the night after her victory. However, the producers decided to pull a fast one and have her on this week. But, once Arlene asked if her name had been in the news and then Bennett asked if she had anything to do with the pageant, her goose was cooked. Unfortunately, there was no time for a fourth game, but it still was a good night for the panel. - Sargebri

      • DARRYL ZANUCK'S "THE LONGEST DAY": As was mentioned earlier, Daryl Zanuck was on the show to promote the classic World War II drama, "The Longest Day," which was based on the Cornelius Ryan novel of the same name. The cast included over 40 international stars including John Wayne, Richard Burton, Curd Jurgens and Robert Mitchum. Also, three actors with fairly strong WML ties were in the film as well; former guest panelists Peter Lawford, Mel Ferrer and Paul Anka. In fact, Paul wrote the score for the film. - Sargebri

      • KILGALLEN WATCH!!! Though Dolly Mae seemed in control, she did somewhat fumble when introducing Art Linkletter. - Sargebri

      • (1) STUDIO SET ENHANCEMENT: There is a slight change to the appearance of both the panel's and Mr. Daly's desks as of tonight's show. The vertical bars that are part of the desks' designs are now a darker color which more closely matches the flat wood surfaces of the desks. On the panel desk, the bars appear to have more of a glossy shine to them. This simplified desk design compliments the relatively new and less-complex look of the product logos.
        (2) "WML?" SPONSOR WATCH: The streamlined appearance of the Kellogg's logo as displayed on a single rectangular board on the panel desk, as first seen on EPISODE #611 of April 29, 1962, will be used full-time on all "WML?" episodes sponsored by the cereal maker from here until 1964. Also, on John's desk, the flip cards showing just the dollar figures and no sponsor product, as first used on EPISODE #545 of January 1, 1961, are now being used for all "WML?" sponsors including Kellogg's. This new simplified design will be used on all remaining episodes until the very end of the series in 1967. The last Kellogg's-sponsored episodes to employ flip cards with an illustrated cereal bowl and spoon were the live EPISODE #623 of July 22, 1962 and the pre-taped EPISODE #629 of September 2, 1962.
        (2) "WML?" CREW CREDITS WATCH: Based on last week's credits, it appears Ted Miller now occupies the position of technical director on "WML?" He succeeds Vernon Gamble, who was credited in that position on the show since the mid-1950's. Also, Bob Barry is credited as lighting director. - W-B
