  • Notes

    • This probably could be seen as a preview of what's to come five years after this particular broadcast. Ironically, Arlene would be the one to introduce Soupy Sales. Soupy would, of course, join Arlene as a regular panelist on the future syndicated daily version of WML. Soupy had a promising showing by asking several good questions. He probably learned from his stint as a mystery guest on the show. Speaking of mystery guests, Anthony Newley had a long and distinguished career not only as an actor, but as a composer, director, producer and singer. He wrote the lyrics to the 1961 standard song "What Kind of Fool Am I?" This love song was written for the 1961 Broadway musical "Stop the World, I Want to Get Off," and sung by the incomparable Sammy Davis, Jr. Newley also wrote the lyrics for the title song of the 1964 James Bond film "Goldfinger," In fact, the song "Goldfinger" was a #2 hit for Shirley Bassey. Among the many films he composed music for was the 1971 film "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," which earned him an Academy Award nomination. Newley died in 1999 after a bout with renal cancer. Of course, Joan Collins would appear in several films before landing her most famous role of the ultimate soap opera bitch, "Alexis Carrington" on the 1981-1989 nighttime soap "Dynasty." Her sister, Jackie Collins, later would become famous in her own right as a novelist. Be sure to check out Joan Collins' hair. Either that was the biggest fright wig I ever saw, or she had it loaded with a lot of hairspray. - Sargebri (2004)
