      • REVIEW: WELCOME BACK Q-SIE!!! Tonight was somewhat of a celebration due to the fact that onetime frequent guest panelist Robert Q. Lewis returned to the panel after being away for a couple of years. Unfortunately, it wasn't much of a celebration, because the panel didn't get any of the regular contestants. In fact, if it weren't for guest panelist Jane Fonda, who was filling in for Arlene while she was in Monaco, the panel probably would have been shut out. In the first game, the panel was really stumped by the man who was guarding the Mona Lisa during the famous painting's New York visit. In the second game, Robert Q. did get close when he figured out that the product the young lady from Florida dealt with was a relative of the bologna family, but he never did figure out that she sold salami. Jane saved a little of the panel's face when she correctly identified future guest panelist Lee Remick. Jane said that she recognized Lee's voice. Lee was in town to promote the soon to be classic Blake Edwards film "Days of Wine and Roses," in which she co-starred with Jack Lemmon. Unfortunately, the panel reverted back to their earlier form when they ran out of time with the contestant who made dental drills. Perhaps when Arlene returns to her rightful spot on the panel, they will do better. - Sargebri

      • As was mentioned earlier, Lee Remick was on the show to promote the 1962 film "Days of Wine and Roses." That film was quite daring for its day due to the fact that it dealt with alcoholism and was also one of the first films to deal with the subject of co-dependency. - Sargebri

      • FONDA & KILGALLEN: It was quite interesting to see Jane Fonda on the panel with Dorothy. What made it so interesting was the fact that Dorothy was an avowed anti-communist and a few years after this episode, Jane would be seen as a communist sympathizer for her outspoken views on the Vietnam War. In fact, if Dolly Mae had been around at the time of "Hanoi Jane's" activities, Jane would have wound up not only on Richard Nixon's enemies list, but perhaps on Dorothy's as well. - Sargebri

      • KILGALLEN WATCH!!! Dorothy seemed to be in control of herself and in good spirits as opposed to how she looked and sounded the previous two weeks. - Sargebri

      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the second challenger at five down, but her product was guessed almost immediately afterwards. He flipped all the cards for the final challenger at four down because time ran out. - agent_0042

      • (1) "WELCOME BACK, OLD FRIEND" - This evening, Robert Q. Lewis takes his place as a guest panelist on "WML?" for the first time since EPISODE #477 of August 16, 1959. He will make ten more guest panelist appearances on the show after tonight, the last being EPISODE #863 of May 28, 1967.
        (2) "WML?" CREW CREDITS WATCH: Bob Barry is credited as lighting director tonight, substituting for Ralph Holmes. - W-B

      • ABSINTHE - The explanation behind Bennett's pun: Absinthe is a strong pale-green liqueur flavored with the herbs wormwood and anise. In addition to alcohol, it contains the psychoactive substance thujone. The source of thujone is the wormwood, from whose scientific name (Artemisia absinthium) absinthe derives its name. This bitter substance is fairly addictive, and will cause enlargement of the heart in chronic users. It is now prohibited in many countries because of its toxicity. - Suzanne

      • This was Jane Fonda's first appearance as a guest panelist. She seemed amused, and laughed quite a bit. She may have been slightly uncomfortable. She kept her elbows on the desktop throughout the episode, waving her pencil around. During the introductions, Bennett told her a "waiter" joke/pun with the ending, "absinthe makes the heart grow, Fonda." When Jane Fonda is a future mystery guest on February 9, 1964, Bennett references this same joke. Jane remembers back to tonight and comments that he'd told her the joke before. - Suzanne

      • Lee Remick promoted her 1962 film, "Days of Wine and Roses," in which she starred with Jack Lemmon. - Suzanne

      • Tidbits: Arlene Francis is in Monaco this week, at the invitation of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace. Next week, we learn that she was the President of their annual "Monte-Carlo Television Festival."

      • Jane Fonda (b. 12/21/1937)

        Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Robert Q. Lewis, Jane Fonda, Bennett Cerf.
