      • MAURY WILLS: In addition to Maury Wills' description as a "Baseball Player," it is interesting that he is additionally described as a "Nightclub Singer" for this 1966 appearance on WML?. Famous as a great base stealer and star shortstop for the Dodgers, Wills took advantage of his status to occasionally be booked as a musical performer. After the 1966 baseball season, the Dodgers embarked on an exhibition tour of Japan. Wills was reportedly upset about the lack of extra compensation for this overseas effort. Instead of joining the team on the trip to Japan, Maury wound up playing the banjo in a nightclub in Hawaii. When Mr. O'Malley, the team owner, was informed of these events, he became enraged and ordered that Wills be traded off his team. Maury was sent to the Pittsburgh Pirates for the 1967 season, had a fine year, and the Dodgers wound up very much on the short end of this deal. - brklnbern (2007)

      • Joan Fontaine's appearance tonight on the "What's My Line?" panel was the latest in a long line of WML guest appearances by members of the "To Tell the Truth" panel. In addition, Joan was a panelist on the daytime version of "TTTT" until 1965, when it was decided to move the panel of the nighttime version of "TTTT" to the daytime, as a way of boosting "TTTT" ratings. - Sargebri (2007)

      • This 1966 episode was not the only "WML?" mystery guest appearance of Dinah Shore to be lost to history, though in this case, the entire episode no longer exists. Her first mystery guest appearance, on EPISODE #301 of March 11, 1956, is also missing, though the rest of that episode still exists. The 1956 episode is notable because it is the last episode on which Fred Allen appeared on the panel - he died six days after that show was broadcast. The only surviving "WML?" episode to feature Dinah as a mystery guest was EPISODE #484 of October 4, 1959, and then, as part of a mystery guest duo with then-husband George Montgomery.

        Also, this was Joan Fontaine's only appearance as a guest panelist during the "classic" "WML?'s" run. She had previously appeared as a mystery guest on EPISODE #190 of January 17, 1954, and would be a mystery guest again in an episode of the syndicated version of "WML?" taped during the 1973-1974 season. Her syndicated episode was notable because the then-Georgia Governor (and later President) Jimmy Carter was the first contestant and the panel was not blindfolded. - W-B (2006)

      • Per Gil Fates' handwritten logs, no kinescope of this episode exists. It was accidently destroyed. - Suzanne (2003)
