  • Notes

    • A SLOW CURVE: If the panel had been looking for hints, they might have made more of John's comment at the top of the show that there were some "slow curves" coming up. This could have led them in the direction of the first contestant's occupation. - agent_0042

      BETTY CAYWOOD: Although it wasn't mentioned on the show tonight, Miss Betty Caywood wasn't just any baseball commentator. In fact, she was the first ever full-time color commentator for Major League Baseball, a role that was not again filled by a woman (Suzyn Waldman) until 2005. - agent_0042


      FLIP REPORT: John flipped the remaining card for the first contestant at nine down, but Bennett had guessed her line. John flipped them at two down for the final contestant because time ran out. Interestingly, John did not flip them for Steve Allen, despite his faux pas. John was probably still too rattled. Of course, this is truly a case of Whose Line is it Anyway? rather than What's My Line? in that the points don't matter, because the mystery challenger always receives the same prize of $500, regardless of the outcome, but this appearance fee was unknown to the public. - agent_0042
