      • WELCOME BACK MISS CHICKEN POX OF 1963!!! Arlene is back after missing the previous week due to a case of chicken pox. Unfortunately, Dorothy is still "ill" and would be out for a couple of more weeks. As for the games themselves, the panel had a somewhat poor night. In the first game, the panel was totally stumped by the baby gorilla keeper who worked at the San Diego Zoo. In the second game, the panel went down the wrong path when they mistakenly thought that the gum chewing contestant had something to do with the chewing gum industry. Arlene did come close when she figured out that he had something to do with sugar, but they remained stuck on gum and that led to their downfall. For the record, the contestant sold sugar. In the mystery guest round, Phyllis correctly identified Oscar nominee Anne Bancroft. Anne was on the show to promote the play "Mother Courage," in which she was appearing at the time. In the final game, the panel ran out of time, so the lady butcher from New Jersey won the full prize by default. - Sargebri

      • As was mentioned during the post game chat, Anne Bancroft was promoting her appearance in the play "Mother Courage." In addition, it was announced that she had been nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her work in the classic film "The Miracle Worker." Unfortunately, due to her commitment to the play, she was unable to be in attendance to pick up her Oscar. However, a few weeks later, she was presented with the award by Joan Crawford, who accepted the award on her behalf. - Sargebri

      • KILGALLEN WATCH!!! This is week number 3 for Dorothy's stay at the LeRoy Sanitarium. Also, John mentioned that it would be quite a while before she would return to her place on the panel. - Sargebri

      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the final challenger at five down when time ran out. - agent_0042

      • A PREVIEW OF THE FUTURE: Phyllis Newman was the first panelist introduced tonight. She was, as Johnny Olson described her, "The bright young star of musical comedy." Tonight's opening introduction of Phyllis was one of the first times that a female guest panelist, as opposed to Arlene, was introduced first. However, this alternating introduction format would become the standard procedure on "WML?" in the show's final years after Dorothy Kilgallen's 1965 death. - W-B

      • ANNE BANCROFT TRIBUTE: GSN aired this episode on June 12, 2005 as part of a 2-hour tribute to Anne Bancroft, who had died on June 6, 2005. Also shown were "WML" EPISODE #620 of July 1, 1962 and EPISODE #738 of November 15, 1964 and "Password" EPISODE #27 of July 10, 1962 on which Miss Bancroft and Robert Goulet were featured.
        This episode was next shown by GSN in its regular rotation on April 18, 2006. - W-B

      • Anne Bancroft promoted her 1963 Broadway play, "Mother Courage and Her Children." The play ran for 52 total performances. Also mentioned was her performance in "The Miracle Worker." Martin Gabel stated that he and Miss Bancroft were students together at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. - Suzanne

      • Tidbits: Martin Gabel is starring in the Broadway play, "Children From Their Games" written by Irwin Shaw. Whether by design or misfortune, the play ran for a total of only four performances. Arlene Francis will soon be starring in the play, "Tchin-Tchin" (pronounced Chin-Chin). John Daly jokingly labels Arlene, "Miss Chicken Pox of 1963" since she had the disease the previous week. John Daly states, "I'm sorry Dorothy is not going to be with us for a little while." He offers no other explanation, but we know that Dorothy is currently hospitalized for a month for her alcoholism. She is at Le Roy Hospital in New York. - Suzanne

      • Panel: Phyllis Newman, Martin Gabel, Arlene Francis, Bennett Cerf.
