  • Notes

    • This really was Arlene's night, as she guessed all three contestants! She joked with Jack Benny (aka "Mr. Kubelsky") by asking if he "Did like Nero and fiddled while Rome burned?" She also guessed that the second contestant made horse collars. The amusing thing about this game was that Phyllis did her best "Arnold Horshack" impersonation, as she wanted to take a stab at what the contestant made. Arlene completed the hat trick by guessing Vince Edwards. As you could tell by the post-game dialogue, Edwards' long running 1961-1966 medical series "Ben Casey" had just finished production, and he was on the show to promote his upcoming singing engagement at the Copacabana. His show opens on Thursday, and Edwards said he began his career as a singer. The immortal Jack Benny was on the show to promote his upcoming concert engagement in New York. However, the night definitely belonged Arlene. - Sargebri (2004)
