(1) FOUND AFTER ALL: After skipping tonight's episode in 2002 and 2004, GSN aired this show in regular rotation on June 7, 2006. The kinescope appears to be in pristine condition.
(2) On the panel desk, Arlene's nameplate has a visible white dot located at the top right of her surname. This dot became apparent over the past few weeks.
(3) Guest panelist Allen Ludden, in introducing Dorothy, mentions a book she is "still" writing about great murders in history. The book will finally be published as "Murder One" in 1967 - two years after Dorothy's death.
(4) BAD PUN ALERT: During the introductions, Bennett mentioned that John believed the French should take over the Rock of Gibraltar so that it could be renamed "De Gaulle's Stone." Bennett's witticism was a double pun - not only on the medical term "gallstone," but also on the surname of then-French President Charles de Gaulle.
(5) LOWELL THOMAS: Aside from his long-running radio broadcast which lasted from 1930 to 1976, legendary news commentator Lowell Thomas (1892-1981) was a founding partner in the Cinerama venture and narrator of the 1952 movie "This Is Cinerama," as well as narrator for Fox Movietone newsreels for many years. His involvement with the latter would form the basis for his 1970s public TV series "Lowell Thomas Remembers." His famous sign-off was "So long, until tomorrow." Mr. Thomas was with CBS at the time of his appearance as the first mystery guest tonight.
(6) "WML?" CREW CREDITS WATCH: After three weeks of super-truncated end credits, we are once again treated to the credits of the people behind the scenes at "WML?" Tonight, Dan F. Smith is credited as associate director, a position he will go on to hold to the end of the show's CBS run, and Jay Fairman is credited in the position of Audio in place of B.A. Taylor. Mr. Fairman will eventually relocate to Florida and be at the sound board for Jackie Gleason's variety show until its cancellation in 1970. - W-B
