  • Notes

    • REVIEW: This was a fair night for the panel as they had a .500 record for the evening. In the first game, the panel was completely stumped by Spoony Singh, the owner of the Hollywood Wax Museum. In the second game, Dorothy correctly guessed that the second contestant sold dynamite for a living. In the mystery guest round, Bennett correctly identified Joey Heatherton. Joey was on the show to promote her upcoming tours with Bob Hope; first to Santo Domingo and secondly to Vietnam to entertain the troops. John also mentioned Joey's dad, Ray Heatherton, who was one of the pioneers of radio. In the final game, Dolly Mae correctly guessed that the contestant was a female writer. However, all the cards had been flipped due to the time running out. Dorothy's guess would prove to be somewhat poignant, because a few hours after this show signed off for the evening, an event would happen to change the course of WML forever; the death of Dorothy Mae Kilgallen. - Sargebri (2007)

      KILGALLEN WATCH!!! Dorothy seemed to be in good spirits this evening and with the exception of a little slur during her introduction of Tony, there was no indication of the tragedy that would happen in the wee hours of the next day. Of course, Dorothy might have had a little nip earlier this evening, but it didn't hinder her game performance. However, sometime in the early morning hours of November 8, 1965, Dorothy consumed a lethal combination of tranquilizers and alcohol which would lead to her untimely passing at the age of 52. - Sargebri (2007)

      VIETNAM!!! As John had mentioned in the post mystery guest round chat, Joey Heatherton was about to go on a tour of Vietnam with Bob Hope during the first of his Christmas visits to that country to entertain the troops there. Of course, this was at a time when the American public still supported the war in Vietnam and it wouldn't be until the January 1968 Tet Offensive that the public's opinion of the war would sharply change. - Sargebri (2007)
