  • Notes

    • A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE!!! This was a very interesting episode due to the fact that sitting in as a guest panelist this evening was Soupy Sales, who would go on to become a regular on the daily syndicated version three years later. Soupy probably was a nice good luck charm, as the panel nearly scored a perfecto. In the first game, Arlene was given credit for correctly guessing that the contestant was a keeper of venomous snakes; specifically, coral snakes. In the second game, Bennett correctly guessed that the contestant made trampolines. In the mystery guest round, which would become a specialty of Soupy's, Dorothy correctly identified Anthony Newley and his then-wife Joan Collins. Tony was on the show to promote his latest musical, "The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd." During the post game chat they also discussed another play of Tony's, the classic "Stop the World - I Want to Get Off." John also congratulated the couple on the upcoming birth of their baby. John did try to get a fourth game in and the panel did correctly guess that she had something to do with a water act, but time ran out before they could guess that she was in the water skiing show at the World's Fair. However, despite the failure in the final game, the panel still had a great night. - Sargebri (2007)

      AND BABY MAKES FOUR: The "upcoming baby" referred to in John's congratulations to mystery guests Anthony Newley and Joan Collins was their second child, Alexander (Sasha) Newley. In an eerie coincidence, the baby was born on November 8, 1965 - the exact same day as Dorothy Kilgallen's tragic death. (The Newley's first child, daughter Tara, was born on October 12, 1963.) - W-B (2007)
