  • Notes

    • REVIEW: Based on tonight's performance, this would have been a night the panel probably would have wanted to stay at home, but for the impassioned pleas and the very fun mystery guest round, this was still a very nice night. In the first game, the panel, which was blindfolded to keep from recognizing the first contestant, was absolutely stumped by legendary newsman/writer/sportsman Lowell Thomas. Mr. Thomas answered the panel in both French and German to fool the panel and seemingly was nervous, but once he got over his jitters, he was very charming. After the game, though, he got very serious by first announcing that he was donating his winnings to the earthquake relief efforts in his adopted home state of Alaska. He then made an impassioned plea to both the audience and the panel to donate whatever they could to the earthquake relief efforts. In the second game, the good news was that Bennett correctly guessed that the young lady from Germany did an act where she juggled while being hung from her hair. However, the bad news was that when he made the guess, it wasn't his turn, and she won the full prize by default. In the mystery guest round, the panel was again fooled; this time by former guest panelist Van Cliburn, who used a European accent of indeterminable origin to fool the panel. In fact, the panel was so far in left field that John threw in the towel. After the game, it was Van's turn to make an appeal. His appeal was for donations for the Interlochen Camp for young musicians. The two appeals helped to ease the blow of the panel being shut out. - Sargebri

      Lowell Thomas wasn't the only famous member of his family. His son, Lowell Jr., would go on to become the Lt. Governor of Alaska. - Sargebri
