      • SHELDON GOLDSTEIN ON BOTH CLASSIC AND SYNDIE WML: On March 19, 2006, during GSN's tribute to actress Maureen Stapleton, two color syndicated episodes of "What's My Line?" were aired, both featuring Maureen Stapleton as the mystery guest. The syndicated episodes were originally taped on January 21, 1969 and August 15, 1974. One of the episodes featured tonight's second guest, Sheldon Goldstein, as a contestant. He still headed the same company and still lived in the same city. He looked the same too, so age was kind to him! - Dan Albertson (2006)

      • "WML?" CREW CREDITS WATCH: George Snowden is credited tonight as production supervisor, filling in for Gil Herman, while Bob Barry is the lighting director, subbing for Gene Ulrich. - W-B

      • REVIEW: This was one of those nights where it looked as if the panel was going to be shut out. However, they managed to pull it out in the mystery guest round, as well as the final game, to finish strongly. In the first game, the panel was close in correctly guessing that the young lady from Indianapolis by way of Latvia was a doctor. Unfortunately, "close" only counts in hand grenades and horseshoes - and they failed to guess that she was a chiropractor. In the second game, the panel fared even worse. They did guess that the contestant dealt in some sort of food product, but they never determined that he made sauerkraut. However, things picked up in the mystery guest round when Arlene correctly identified the newlyweds, and sometime WML guest panelists, Allen Ludden and Betty White. Allen and Betty took time to promote their summer stock performances as well as the show that Allen was currently hosting, the classic word game "Password." As mentioned, Betty would be one of the "Password" celebrity guests the next night. Tomorrow's other "Password" celebrity guest would be one of Dorothy Kilgallen's favorite sparring partners, Jack Paar. In the final game, Martin got credit for correctly guessing that Bobby Moore was a soccer player. In fact, Moore's club team, West Ham United, had just won a match the previous day against an unnamed French side. That correct guess helped to make the evening a partial success. - Sargebri (2006)

        Bobby Moore was one of the greatest defenders in the history of soccer. In fact, besides playing for West Ham United, he earned 108 International Caps for England. (A "cap" is a term used when a player appears on the field for his national team.) Professionally, Moore also played for English Premier League side Fulham as well as the San Antonio Thunder and Seattle Sounders of the North American Soccer League. Sadly, "Mooro" passed away in 1993 from bowel cancer. The legendary Pelé put it best when he called Moore "a gentleman." - Sargebri (2006)

        As was mentioned in the post game chat after the mystery guest round, Allen Ludden and Betty White had just gotten married a little over a week earlier on June 14, 1963. The couple met when Betty was a panelist on "Password." They would remain married until Allen's death in 1981. Ironically, Allen died just five days shy of his and Betty's 18th wedding anniversary. Also, Allen would posthumously receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which, appropriately enough, is right next to Betty's own star. - Sargebri (2006)

      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the first contestant at five down. The panel had correctly identified the contestant as some sort of doctor, but even after several guesses, they never made the specific identification of chiropractor. John flipped all the cards for the final contestant at four down. Martin asked if he was involved with rugger or soccer, which John seized as a perfect excuse to flip the cards. - agent_0042

      • SPECIAL TRIBUTE: GSN's 2006 airing of this classic CBS black & white episode was delayed by one day in its regular rotation. On April 29, 2006, GSN instead aired a color episode of the 1968-1975 syndicated incarnation of "What's My Line? which was from its sixth season. The color syndicated episode was taped on July 5, 1973 and was hosted by Larry Blyden. The panelists were Henry Morgan, Sherrye Henry, Jack Cassidy and Arlene Francis. The mystery guest was "Big Bird" from the long-running children's show, "Sesame Street." Toward the end of the program, the person who portrayed "Big Bird," Carroll Spinney, appeared as himself. The syndicated episode was aired in commemoration of Mr. Spinney's having won a special Lifetime Achievement Award at the 33rd annual Daytime Emmy Awards which were held on April 28, 2006. "WML?" EPISODE #669 was then aired by GSN the following day on April 30, 2006, so no episodes were skipped for the special tribute. - W-B

      • Three years later, Bobby Moore would become captain of England's victorious World Cup team at the 1966 World Cup Tournament. Bobby Moore would also gain fame for partly starting one of the most famous traditions in soccer. During the 1970 World Cup, soccer legend Pelé wanted to tribute Moore, whom he thought was one of the greatest defenders in history, after Brazil tied England in the first round. As his way of showing respect to Moore, Pelé literally gave him the shirt off his back and Moore did likewise. Soon, the rest of the soccer world followed their example, and exchanging jerseys after matches became a tradition. - Sargebri

      • Betty White and Allen Ludden had just returned from their honeymoon. They were married from June 14, 1963 until his death on June 9, 1981. They were probably two of the nicest people in the business! - Suzanne

      • Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Martin Gabel, Arlene Francis, Bennett Cerf.

      • Arlene still has her right arm in a sling, again hidden by a cape-style dark jacket with a large white Peter Pan collar. She had broken her collarbone in the recent auto accident. - Suzanne
