  • Notes

    • Arlene made several jokes during the broadcast regarding her honorary doctorate from American International University, especially a very funny one about her keeping regular hours. The ironic thing about the cap and gown rental executive was the fact that earlier that day, Arlene had worn one of his products while receiving her degree. Also, a brief mention is made of the graduation exercises at Deerfield Academy, which Arlene and Bennett both attended. Their respective sons, Peter Gabel and Jonathan Cerf, had graduated from this exclusive prep school on the day prior to this broadcast, Saturday. They probably wore Collegiate caps and gowns also! Helen Hayes had long been regarded as the "First Lady of the American Theatre." Her adoptive son James MacArthur followed in her acting footsteps, and had been working in films. Four years after this broadcast, he would take on his most famous role, Detective Danny "Danno" Williams on "Hawaii Five-O." "Book 'em, Danno." Ironically, Miss Hayes would make a guest appearance on that show, playing Danny's Aunt. - Sargebri (2004)
