  • Notes

    • Dorothy Watch: This is Dorothy Kilgallen's final What's My Line? appearance. Tragically, she would die within several hours of the taping of this show, in the small hours of November 8, 1965. She was only 52 years old. She wore a light-colored, V-neck, sleeveless, knee-length dress. She accessorized her dress with hoop earrings, but no necklace. Unlike the previous five episodes, Dorothy again subtly displayed signs that she was not fully sober. She had obviously been drinking before the broadcast this evening. Her voice was slightly slurry and she spoke out of turn. Dorothy's voice is definitely not "crisply perfect" as author Lee Israel incorrectly claims in her 1979 biography of Dorothy titled "Kilgallen." In spite of this, Dorothy still played the game well and appeared cheerful. Dorothy left behind her husband Dick Kollmar and her three beloved children. Her oldest, Dickie Kollmar, was 24 years old. Her middle child, daughter Jill Kollmar, had married Larry Grossman in the summer of 1963. Her youngest child, son Kerry Kollmar, was 11 years old. - Suzanne (2004)
