  • Notes

    • REVIEW: There certainly were a lot of Bobs on this episode as all three of the male contestants this night, including the mystery guest, were named Robert. However, the first game featured the only non-Bob of the night as the guest was a lady. It looked as if Arlene was well on her way to doing a solo in guessing the then new United States Treasurer, Kathryn Granaham. Unfortunately, she called her "Mrs. Garrity" by mistake and got a "no." Luckily, Bennett was there to make the correct identification. In the second game, the panel wasn't as lucky as they failed to guess that the first Bob of the night was a thumbtack salesman. In the mystery guest round, Arlene made up for her earlier goof by correctly identifying Robert Preston. Bob was on the show to promote his soon to be opening show, a musical version of George Bernard Shaw's "Too True to Be Good." He also brought up the television special he appeared in the previous week, which preempted WML. In the final game, the panel was so far out in left field that John decided to call the game on the basis of time, so the third and final Bob, an interior decorator for elevators, won the full prize by default. - Sargebri
