      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the second challenger after Arlene guessed his occupation almost immediately. He flipped all the cards for the final challenger at six down because time ran out. - agent_0042

      • (1) In the opening moments of tonight's show, Bennett introduced John as "my son, the panel moderator." This was a play on the title of the top-selling album "My Son, The Folk Singer" (Warner Bros. W(S) 1475, 1962) by Allan Sherman, a former producer of Goodson-Todman's "I've Got a Secret" and future "WML?" mystery guest (and one-time-only guest panelist).
        (2) It wasn't just "old home week" in front of the camera, what with "prodigal son" Steve Allen returning to the panel for this evening, but also behind the scenes, as 1950's "WML?" lighting director Hal Anderson is credited in that capacity tonight. - W-B
