  • Notes

    • AND NOW, LIVE FROM NEW YORK IN LIVING COLOR!!! Tonight was a very special night in the history of WML as it was finally being broadcast in color. Unfortunately, CBS destroyed the color videotapes, but at least the black and white kinescopes still exist. In any event, the panel celebrated by going a very solid 2 for 3 on the evening. In the first game, Arlene correctly guessed that the young co-ed from New Mexico had something to do with garbage cans, but it was Sue who correctly guessed that the young lady decorated them. In the second game, the panel was absolutely stumped by the 8-year old trick billiard shot artist from Downey, California. In the mystery guest round, Arlene correctly identified Warren Beatty. Warren was on the show to promote the film "Kaleidoscope," which was about to open. There was no time for a fourth game, but this definitely was a great way to kick off the color era of WML. - Sargebri (2008)

      It was quite interesting to see Warren Beatty's hairstyle on this episode. He definitely proved that the times were changing by how long his hair was. At the time of his appearance on the show, he was still one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. He remained that way until 1992 when he was finally snared by his "Bugsy" co-star Annette Bening. Also, it is unfortunate that Warren's talented big sister, Shirley MacLaine, never appeared on WML in its entire 17.5 year CBS run. - Sargebri (2008)
