  • Notes

    • Arlene introduces Bobby Darin as being in town for the Heart Association, and Bobby plays the game extremely well! Host John Daly comments that he had to run an "obstacle course" to get to the studio because The Beatles were making their first United States appearance next door at the Ed Sullivan Theatre. Songwriter Johnny Mercer is the first mystery guest, and promotes his new Broadway musical "Foxy." To commemorate The Beatles debut in America, the show's second contestant is Mr. Kantor of the Lowell Toy Company, manufacturer of the Beatles wigs, which are selling for $2.98 each. Mr. Kantor states that they are selling "like mad," and his company is manufacturing over 20,000 wigs a day! John Daly suggests to Bennett that he might want to wear a Beatles wig on cold nights. The second mystery guest is Jane Fonda. She says she sounds too much like her father Henry Fonda when attempting to disguise her voice, and discusses her new film, "Sunday in New York." Bennett makes a terrible pun about making the "heart grow fonda," and Jane states, "he told me that before." The first time Bennett told Jane Fonda the "absinthe makes the heart grow, Fonda" joke/pun was on January 13, 1963 when Jane was a guest panelist. - Jim's TV Collectables
