      • REVIEW: CONGRATULATIONS ARLENE!!! Tonight it was announced that Arlene was elected to the board of directors for the 1964 World's Fair that was to take place in the Flushing Meadow area of New York. Coincidentally, to mark the occasion, Arlene got the only two correct guesses for the night. In the first game, Arlene correctly figured out that the mother and son team of the Boltons were members of Congress. In fact, Mrs. Bolton had just begun her 13th consecutive term as congresswoman, or as she put it, female congressman. Also, Martin jokingly asked if the Bolton family was going to challenge the burgeoning Kennedy dynasty, to which she replied "There's a lot more of us on the way." In the second game, the panel was able to figure out that the lovely young lady from Oregon was a cook, but they were unable to figure out that she was a pancake cook. In the mystery guest round, Arlene correctly identified Anthony Quinn. Tony was on the show to promote the play he was currently in, "Tchin-Tchin." He also brought up the classic film "Lawrence of Arabia." Martin commended him for his work in the motion picture version of Rod Serling's classic television drama "Requiem for a Heavyweight" and said that he should get an Oscar nomination for the role. In the final game, the panel ran out of time, so the ski pull operator won the full prize by default. - Sargebri

      • As John mentioned, Arlene was named to the board of directors for the 1964 New York World's Fair. It was due to her position on the board that she managed to get her son Peter Gabel a job at the fair. In fact, Peter made the first of his two WML appearances during the fair. In a humorous turn of events, he fooled his mother and the rest of the panel, causing Arlene to make a very funny remark about where his $50 was going. - Sargebri

      • WELCOME ABOARD PHYLLIS!!! This was the first of Phyllis Newman's 34 guest panelist appearances on WML between now and August 27, 1967. She would go on to become the most prolific female guest panelist in the history of the show. Of course, she was no stranger to being a game show panel member, because at the time of her appearance on WML tonight, Phyllis was a member of the panel on the daytime version of "To Tell the Truth." However, most of her WML appearances would take place after Dorothy's tragic 1965 passing, in the final two years of the show. Still, Phyllis managed to make her mark on the show with her youthful enthusiasm and somewhat scatterbrained, but charming, personality. Interestingly, Phyllis never appeared as a mystery guest on the show, but her husband Adolph Green once did, when he appeared with his longtime collaborator Betty Comden. In fact, that appearance took place on a night when Phyllis was on the panel. The Comden & Green duo appeared on the show to promote the Broadway musical "Hallelujah, Baby!" for which they wrote the music lyrics. When Phyllis unmasked, she was pleasantly surprised to see them. Also, the duo remarked that the public finally could see that Betty and Phyllis were two different ladies. In addition to Phyllis' busy schedule, the year before her appearance on the show tonight, she had appeared in the Broadway musical "Subways Are for Sleeping." - Sargebri

      • KILGALLEN WATCH!!! Dorothy did not appear on the show due to, as John put it, illness. However, the previous week, Dorothy really looked as if she were very intoxicated and looked out of it. Perhaps she really was in no condition to appear due to her addictions or due to illness. Nevertheless, within a few more weeks, Dorothy would return to the LeRoy Sanitarium to try again to combat her addictions. - Sargebri

      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the final challenger at eight down, because time ran short. - agent_0042

      • Oliver Payne Bolton (1917-1972) Great-grandson of Henry B. Payne; son of Chester Castle Bolton and Frances Payne Bolton. Born in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, February 22, 1917.

      • Frances Payne Bolton (1885-1977) - also known as Frances P. Bolton - of Lyndhurst, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Granddaughter of Henry B. Payne; married to Chester Castle Bolton; mother of Oliver Payne Bolton. Born in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, March 29, 1885. Republican.

      • Anthony Quinn (or Tony as they called him) promoted his appearance in the Broadway play, "Tchin-Tchin" (pronounced Chin-Chin) in which he starred with Margaret Leighton. It ran for 222 total performances. - Suzanne

      • Tidbits: Arlene Francis' Palm Beach, FL play (still unnamed) is at the Point Sienna Theatre. Arlene Francis was elected to the Board of Directors of the upcoming 1964-1965 New York World's Fair, and is the only woman on the Board. Since What's My Line? was first broadcast on February 2, 1950, this was the "thirteenth anniversary" show, and the beginning of their fourteenth year. Dorothy Kilgallen is unfortunately ill tonight, per John Daly. John also mentioned Bennett, who is still vacationing in Barbados, West Indies. - Suzanne

      • Phyllis Newman (b. 3/19/1933)

        Panel: Arlene Francis, Peter Cook, Phyllis Newman, Martin Gabel.
