  • Notes

    • REVIEW: After the previous week's perfecto, the panel was brought back down to earth as they went a dismal 1 for 3 on the evening. In fact, if it wasn't for guest panelist Digby Wolfe, the panel probably would have gone home with a big fat goose egg. In the first game, Bennett correctly guessed that the young lady from Jackson, Wyoming was a dog catcher. Unfortunately, his guess came after the panel had gotten the final "no" for that game. In the second game, Bennett correctly guessed that the gentleman from Cleveland was a drummer. However, Bennett was never able to guess that the contestant was a drum tester. In the mystery guest round, Digby, almost out of the blue, correctly identified Arthur Godfrey. Arthur was on the show to promote the 1966 film he was in, "The Glass Bottom Boat," playing the father of Doris Day's character in the film. Arthur also took time to reminisce with John about the good old days in radio, and John paid Arthur a compliment by saying that Arthur was a big help. Mercifully, there was no time for a fourth game, so the show ended on a fairly high note. - Sargebri (2007)

      NEXT CANDIDATE!!! Tonight's female guest panelist was "To Tell the Truth" regular Peggy Cass. Peggy looked as if she was having fun on the show and even threw out a reference to her regular gig when she called the second contestant "Number One." Interestingly, right after this episode was broadcast on GSN, an episode of TTTT from 1965 followed, featuring several familiar faces to fans of WML. In addition to Peggy, the panel on this evening included the other members of the classic TTTT panel line up: Kitty Carlisle, Tom Poston and Orson Bean. Sitting in for an ailing Bud Collyer was frequent WML guest panelist Robert Q. Lewis. It is interesting to note that at the time that this show was originally broadcast, it was during the period when there were separate panels for the once-a-week prime time version (Tom, Peggy, Orson and Kitty) and the daytime version. Later that year, Goodson-Todman decided to have the members of the prime time panel move to the daytime as well, in order to help boost the ratings of the daytime version. It is interesting to note that one of the regulars on the daytime version was another person who was very familiar to WML fans, Phyllis Newman. - Sargebri (2007)
