  • Notes

    • REVIEW: WELCOME HOME BENNETT!!! After a couple of weeks away, Bennett returned tanned and refreshed from his vacation in Barbados. Unfortunately, the panel didn't do so hot this evening and if it weren't for Arlene, they probably would have been shut out. The carnage began in the first game when the panel was totally stumped by the female bullfighter from Toronto, Canada. However, they probably shouldn't be blamed too much for their loss, because it was so rare to have a female who fought bulls, and in addition, she was rather short and cute. In the second game, they were so far off the beaten track that John flipped over all the cards, so the powder puff maker won the full prize by default. John later told the panel that if they had narrowed the product to something women would use, then they might have gotten it. In the mystery guest round, Arlene saved the day when she correctly identified former guest panelist Tony Perkins. Tony was on the show to promote his latest picture "The Trial," which was directed by another former guest panelist, Orson Welles. And so, the night mercifully ended for the panel. - Sargebri (2006)

      It was quite interesting to see Phyllis Newman and Peter Ustinov together on the panel. Three years later, on EPISODE #831 of September 18, 1966, a brief exchange by them led to one of the cutest moments in the show's history. Phyllis was a guest panelist that night and Peter was the mystery guest. When Phyllis was ready to identify him, she asked if he had "a cute face with a cute beard." - Sargebri (2006)

      KILGALLEN WATCH!!! At the top of the show, John said, "I'm sorry that Dorothy Kilgallen is not with us again tonight." No explanation was given for her absence. Historically, we know that this was a rough period for Dorothy as her substance abuse issues escalated. Over the past few weeks, she has begun to look tired and thin, as if her alcohol consumption is taking its toll on her health. It was only a matter of weeks until her return to the LeRoy Sanitarium in an effort to help her with her various addictions. At the end of the show, both Arlene and John said "Good night" to Dorothy. - Sargebri (2006)
