      • REVIEW: It was interesting to see Martin Gabel in Bennett's anchor position while Bennett was away on his well-deserved three week South American vacation. As for the panel's game performance, this was a fairly good night for the panel as they wound up with a .500 record for the evening. In the first game, "Cozy Nostra" leader Arlene (Woody's pun on Cosa Nostra) correctly guessed that the young lady from El Paso, Texas was a racehorse trainer. In the second game, the panel wasn't as lucky, as they failed to guess that the contestant was a State Department courier. The panel's downfall was due in part to the fact that they concentrated on the mode of the courier's transportation rather than, as John mentioned, the government angle. In the mystery guest round, Dorothy correctly identified Debbie Reynolds, who once again used a variety of foreign accents to try to fool the panel. Debbie was in town for a preview showing of her upcoming release "The Unsinkable Molly Brown." She also mentioned the film on which she was starting production the next day, "Goodbye Charlie." In the final game, the panel ran out of time while questioning the sword maker, so he won the full prize by default. Still, this was a very nice evening for the panel. - Sargebri

      • FAMOUS DAUGHTERS: During the post-game mystery guest round chat, Debbie Reynolds mentioned that she was about to start work on the motion picture "Goodbye Charlie" with Tony Curtis. Debbie and Tony would have more than just a motion picture in common as they were both parents of daughters that would go on to become hugely successful themselves. Debbie's daughter, Carrie Fisher, would gain fame playing "Princess Leia Organa" in the classic "Star Wars" films. She also would become a highly successful author. Her semi-autobiographical novel, "Postcards From the Edge," based on her relationship with her mother, would be made into a 1990 motion picture starring Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine. Tony's daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis, would also go on to become a successful actress. In fact, she had two successful phases of her career. In the first phase, she gained the moniker "The Scream Queen" from her work in "slasher films" such as "Halloween" and "Terror Train." In the second phase of her career, she could gain acclaim as a comedic actress in such films as "Trading Places" (1983), "A Fish Called Wanda" (1988) and "True Lies" (1994) opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. She also would star in the 1989-1992 sitcom "Anything But Love" in the role of "Hannah Miller," which earned her a Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Series. Jamie Lee Curtis would also become an accomplished author, writing books geared toward children. - Sargebri

      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the first contestant at four down, but Arlene had correctly guessed that she trained horses. He flipped them all for the final contestant at four down because time ran out. - agent_0042

      • (1) "LIVE" WATCH: The kinescope copy of tonight's live telecast has kept the word "live" uncut and intact on Johnny Olson's opening intro.
        (2) A BLAST FROM THE PAST: After exchanging pleasantries with guest panelists Woody Allen and Martin Gabel, John brings back his old opening "Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to 'What's My Line?'" - W-B

      • CIRCUS SAINTS AND SINNERS: After Hugo Castello signed in, John noted Hugo's lapel pin and asked if it was a "Circus Saints and Sinners" pin, and Hugo replied "yes." "Circus Saints and Sinners Association of America" was a philanthropic group that supported retired circus performers and raised money for down-and-out actors. Also known as the "Circus Saints and Sinners Club," its membership included many top names in the business, political and entertainment fields. They held regular banquets, and conducted legendary "roasts" of political and show business figures. The organization was founded by Freddie "Bing" Benham and was in its heyday in the 1930s and 1940s. - Suzanne Astorino

      • Debbie Reynolds promoted both "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" and the film "Goodbye Charlie" in which she co-stars with Tony Curtis. Dorothy Kilgallen asked Debbie to give Tony a message. Dorothy said, "Tell him the poodle is wonderful." Debbie then stated that she loves secret messages! For her mystery guest round, Debbie pulled out all her various accents, such as Italian, English, "Zsa Zsa Gabor," Cockney and more. - Suzanne

      • Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Woody Allen, Arlene Francis, Martin Gabel. Bennett Cerf is vacationing in South America and will be gone for 3 weeks total. This is his first missed week.
