    • NOTES (9)

      • BON VOYAGE BENNETT!!! This was Bennett's last night on the show before he was to start his Caribbean vacation and the panel sent him off in style by going two for three this evening. In the first game, Dorothy voluntarily disqualified herself because she recognized Miss Murphy. However, Tony correctly guessed that Miss Murphy sold newspapers. It was then revealed that Miss Murphy, who was an aspiring actress, sold newspapers at several nightspots around New York City that various producers and casting agents frequented. Of course, many of those clubs were also frequented by Dolly Mae. John then flipped over the remaining cards because Miss Murphy was running late for her alternate job as a performer. In the second game, the panel failed to guess that the contestant sold revolving doors. This was their only miss of the night. In the mystery guest round, Arlene correctly identified the husband and wife duo of Tommy Sands and Nancy Sinatra. The couple apologized for the fact that Tommy was wearing a light-colored suit instead of a dark-colored suit. Tommy explained that he didn't have time to change clothes because he had just gotten off the bus he was riding while promoting "None but the Brave." There was no time for a fourth game due to President Johnson's televised address to the American people. However, it still was a successful night. - Sargebri (2006)

        NANCY SINATRA: It had to be a very interesting night in the Sinatra household as Frank's little girl Nancy actually shook hands with his mortal enemy, Dorothy Mae Kilgallen. However, it was good to see that the feud between Frank and Dorothy didn't carry over between Dorothy and Nancy. This time period was essentially at the beginning of Nancy's career when she was still under her father's shadow. However, the next year would prove to be her breakout year as she would have two number-one singles. The first was her signature song, "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'." The second, appropriately enough, was a romantic duet with her dad, titled "Somethin' Stupid." However, Nancy wasn't the only child of Frank's to have a show business career. "Old Blue Eye's" only son, Frank Junior, would have a relatively successful career as a nightclub singer and would even become an actor. He would later become his father's arranger and band leader. Frank's youngest daughter, Tina, would later become an actress appearing in films and television shows. In fact, she and Frank Jr. would appear together on an episode of the police drama "Adam-12." Also appearing in that episode with them was another second-generation star, Bing Crosby's son, Gary Crosby. - Sargebri (2006)

      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped all the cards for the first contestant at four down. Tony Randall had correctly identified her line. She had noted that she was running late for a performance and John said he had to flip all the cards because of that. John flipped them all for the second contestant at seven down, as the panel was quite stumped and time was running short. - agent_0042 (2006)

      • (1) "WML?" SPONSOR WATCH: Tonight's opening sponsor is Kellogg's, this time with a "Special K" cereal box next to the bowl as displayed on the slide card graphic. As with the Kellogg's slide seen at the start of EPISODE #751, the cereal maker's full slogan, "The Best to You Each Morning," is on display on the top right-hand corner.
        (2) "LIVE" WATCH: This is the 39th known kinescope recording of a live episode still in existence, where the word "live" was edited out of the intro. - W-B (2006)

      • I believe that Sinatra's "Boycott of WML", or more specifically, "Boycott of WML with Dorothy Kilgallen" was limited to his own personal business affairs. His avoidance of WML was in actuality an avoidance of Dorothy Kilgallen. This is evidenced by every other member of the Rat Pack, except himself, making multiple appearances on the show. As much as he disliked Dorothy, he never let his personal feelings about Kilgallen interfere with the careers of his friends and family. He knew that WML offered excellent promotional benefits. WML was THE show to appear on to plug your latest movie, play, club appearance or recording. - exapno99

      • It must have been a very interesting night in the Sinatra family. As many people know, Old Blue Eyes despised Dolly Mae and he didn't bother to hide his feelings. It must have shocked him to see his daughter Nancy shake the hands of his mortal enemy. Keeping his distance, Frank would not appear on WML until a year after Dorothy's death. Nancy would have other hits in addition to "These Boots Are Made for Walking." Another song, "Sugar Town," would reach #5 in 1966. In 1967, she and her father released a #1 hit single duet, "Somethin' Stupid." She would have yet another hit duet with the composer of "Boots," Lee Hazlewood, on the song "Jackson." Recently, you will hear her 1966 version of the Sonny Bono song "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" in Quentin Tarantino's 2003 "Kill Bill: Vol. 1". An interesting note about Sua Murphy is that this was not the only Goodson-Todman panel show she appeared on. She also appeared as a contestant on "To Tell the Truth." - Sargebri (2004)

      • The address by President Johnson announced the opening of the 1965 American Red Cross Campaign. On January 28, 1965, LBJ designated the month of March 1965 as Red Cross Month. (Proclamation 3636; 30 F.R. 1109; 3 CFR, 1965 Supp.) His remarks were filmed and recorded in advance for broadcast to the three major networks (ABC, NBC & CBS) immediately preceding local stations' late night newscasts. - drexelgal

      • Tidbits: Bennett said that tomorrow at the "crack of dawn" he is off to vacation in Caneel Bay, St. John, Virgin Islands. At the end of the program, John Daly announces that he is concluding early because there is an upcoming "message from the President" (Johnson). - Suzanne (2004)

      • Pop singer and actor Tommy Sands and Nancy Sinatra were married from September 11, 1960 until their divorce in 1965. After their divorce, Nancy began her singing career. Her single "These Boots Are Made For Walking" was released in February 1966. It was an international hit and would reach #1 in the U.S. charts. - Suzanne (2004)
