  • Notes

    • (1) "LIVE" WATCH: The kinescope of tonight's live broadcast is the 21st surviving episode since Dorothy Kilgallen's passing to keep the "live" wording uncut on the intro.
      (2) "WML?" PANEL WATCH: For the second time in the post-Kilgallen era, Phyllis Newman is introduced first. And for the second time in this same period, she is introduced with the same line usually reserved for Arlene, "The delightful star of stage, screen and television." In Miss Newman's case, this is the fourth time in "WML?'s" history that she has sat on the far end of the panel.
      (3) VINCE EDWARDS: For most of the 1961-1966 run of "Ben Casey" on which tonight's second mystery guest, Vince Edwards, played the titular doctor for the entire time it was on the air, the program's opening words, "Man, Woman, Birth, Death, Infinity," were spoken by Sam Jaffe who played Dr. Casey's mentor and boss, "Dr. David Zorba," for all but its final season. In this last season which was ending, where Dr. Casey's new superior, "Dr. Daniel Niles Freeland," was played by Franchot Tone, the memorable opening line was spoken by Mr. Edwards himself. The show was produced by Bing Crosby Productions, which is today more famous for being involved in the production of "Hogan's Heroes" which premiered at the start of this, the 1965-1966 season, and ran until 1971. The main font used for the cast list and closing credits for "Ben Casey" was Bernhard Modern Bold. This typeface is perhaps most famous in television for its use in the episode intro and closing credits of "The Twilight Zone," which ran on CBS from 1959 to 1964 (with selected hour-long episodes from the second half of the 1962-1963 season rerun in 1965).
      (4) "WML?" CREW CREDITS WATCH: Once again, James Murphy is credited as production supervisor. The remainder of the production crew is the same as the previous week.
      (5) Following the January 3, 2008 airing of tonight's show, GSN ran the January 15, 1962 edition of "I've Got a Secret," hosted by Garry Moore, with the "classic '60's" panel of Bill Cullen, Betsy Palmer, Henry Morgan and Bess Myerson, and celebrity guest Jane Powell. - W-B (2008)
