  • Notes

    • REVIEW: As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Tonight, the panel's string of great performances came to a screeching halt as they went a miserable 1 for 3 this evening. In fact, if it weren't for the "Bitter and Twisted" guest panelist Terry-Thomas, the panel probably would have been shut out. In the first game, the panel was absolutely stumped by the lady who made blankets for horses and elephants. She also took time to promote the annual parade in Milwaukee where her blankets would be worn by the animals. In the second game, the panel was again fooled, this time by the winner of the Supermarket Checker of Year award for 1964. The panel's downfall came when they got lead down the garden path by John as they questioned the guest about food, thinking that she had something to do with the restaurant industry. After the game, she talked about the various prizes she won for winning the award, including a trip to Hawaii as well as a mink stole. In the mystery guest round, Terry-Thomas saved the panel's bacon when he correctly identified former guest panelist Jack Lemmon. Jack was in town for two reasons. His main reason was to promote the film "Good Neighbor Sam," which had just been released. His second reason for being in town was to start location shooting for the film "How to Murder Your Wife," which also featured Terry-Thomas. They then joked about how Jack tried to keep everything secret from him by continuing to play pool as Terry-Thomas asked him about his upcoming appearance on WML. That definitely helped to ease the pain of tonight's dreadful game performance. - Sargebri (2006)
