      • REVIEW: This was one of the great nights where the panel was on their game as they went an impressive 3 for 4, which was highlighted by an excellent performance by Martin in the final game. In the first game, Dorothy guessed that the first contestant was an animal trainer. However, it was Bennett and Arlene who correctly figured out that it was none other than Clyde Beatty, who signed in as "Mr. X" to keep from being identified. Clyde was in town to promote the upcoming circus, which he was going to be appearing in. In the second game, the panel was so far off the path that John flipped over all the cards so the female private eye won the full prize by default. In the mystery guest round, the panel pretty much guessed that it was Charles Boyer after the first yes, but it was Arlene who made the identification. He was on the show to promote the play he was appearing in, playing the role of "Lord Pengo" in the play of the same name. In the final game, Martin, of all people, pulled off a solo as he correctly identified jazz musician Paul Winter. However, it was Dolly Mae who correctly guessed that he had recently performed at the White House. Winter and his combo had recently returned from a tour of South America where they were exposed for the first time to the form of jazz known as bossa nova, which would soon become one of the crazes among fans of jazz. And on that happy note, the show came to a great conclusion. - Sargebri

      • As has been mentioned for the past few weeks, Arlene has been shuttling back and forth between New York and Hollywood as she has been filming a role in the Doris Day film "The Thrill of It All." In the film, Arlene plays the role of "Mrs. Fraleigh," the wife of the boss of Doris' character, "Beverly Boyer." However, at the end of the film, Arlene's character has a baby. What really was funny about it was the fact that Arlene was 55 years old at the time this movie was being shot. - Sargebri

      • KILGALLEN WATCH!!! Dorothy was very much in control of herself tonight and put in a good performance. - Sargebri

      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the second challenger at six down in the interest of time and because the panel wasn't close. - agent_0042

      • (1) In 1952, tonight's mystery guest, Charles Boyer, co-starred with Charles Laughton, Sir Cedric Hardwicke and Agnes Moorehead in a production of George Bernard Shaw's "Don Juan In Hell" that was also issued as a two-record set on Columbia Masterworks (set SL-166, consisting of ML 4611 and ML 4612). In that production, directed by Mr. Laughton, and for which Mr. Boyer won a special Tony Award, the four actors appeared under the banner of "The First Drama Quartette." All except Miss Moorehead appeared either as a guest panelist or mystery guest during the course of "WML?'s" run.

        Mr. Boyer was also a partner in the television production company Four Star Television, along with fellow actors Dick Powell and David Niven; all of whom had appeared on "WML?" at one time or another, either as a guest panelist and/or mystery guest. Such future stars as David Janssen, Mary Tyler Moore, Lee Majors, Chuck Connors and Steve McQueen, and behind-the-scenes figures such as prolific TV producer Aaron Spelling and legendary director Sam Peckinpah, got their first big breaks in TV programs produced by Four Star.
        (2) "WML?" CREW CREDITS WATCH: Once more, it's Ralph Holmes' turn at bat as lighting director. - W-B

      • Charles Boyer promoted his appearance at the Royale Theatre in the (11/19/1962 - 4/20/1963) Broadway comedy play, "Lord Pengo". Author S.N. Behrman adapted his book "The Days of Duveen" specifically for Boyer. Lord Joseph Duveen was a famous art dealer with clients such as William Randolph Hearst, Andrew Mellon and John D. Rockefeller.

      • Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Martin Gabel, Arlene Francis, Bennett Cerf.
