  • Notes

    • REVIEW: Once again, the panel put in a great performance. This was probably the peak of their recent good performances as they achieved the long-awaited perfecto, and it was Arlene who pulled the one-woman perfecto as she made every correct guest. In the first game, Phyllis pretty much knew that the first mystery guest was none other than comic legend Jack Benny, who signed in using his birth name of Kubelsky. However, a misstep prevented her from making the correct guess, but Arlene made the correct identification. Jack was on the show to promote several different performances that would be taking place over the next month. In the second game, Arlene again showed she was in great form as almost by accident she correctly guessed that the lady from Tennessee made horse collars. In the second mystery guest round, Arlene capped the evening by correctly identifying "Ben Casey" star Vince Edwards. Vince was on the show to promote his upcoming engagement at the Copacabana. There was no time for a fourth game, so there was no danger of them running out of time as was the case the past two weeks, so the perfecto was preserved. - Sargebri (2008)
