  • Notes

    • HE'S BAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!! Tonight marked Bennett's return from his month-long European vacation/second honeymoon and the panel celebrated his return by going a respectable 2 for 3. In fact, the Squire of Mt. Kisco got things rolling when he correctly guessed that the lovely young lady from Hong Kong was a policewoman. In the second game, the panel wasn't as lucky, as they failed to guess that the contestant was the head of the Arbitron rating service. The panel did better in the mystery guest round as they correctly identified Gordon and Sheila MacRae. Gordon and Sheila were on the "Bell Telephone Hour" earlier that evening and squeezed in an appearance with their favorite panel. This definitely was a great way for Bennett's return to the WML panel. - Sargebri (2007)

      When the MacRaes were being questioned, someone asked if they were famous for doing movies, to which they answered "no." However, Sheila did have a cameo in the film "Bikini Beach," the third in the series of American International's wildly successful "Beach Party" series. Perhaps the main reason Sheila was in the film was that also in the cast was her and Gordon's daughter, Meredith, who was just starting her career. Interestingly, just three short years after this episode aired, the syndicated version of WML debuted in 1968 and on the panel that first week was Meredith, who was taking a break from her role of "Billie Jo Bradley" on the rural comedy "Petticoat Junction." - Sargebri (2007)
