  • Notes

    • (1) "WML?" SPONSOR WATCH: The opening sponsor for tonight is Supp-hose Stockings.
      (2) "MEMOREX" WATCH: This is the tenth prerecorded edition since EPISODE #820 of July 3, 1966 to omit mention of the show's origin of production in announcer Johnny Olson's opening. It is also the second pre-taped episode to be recorded on a day other than Sunday.
      (3) "WML?" PANEL WATCH: Guest panelist Orson Bean's nameplate on the panel desk reads "MR. BEAN" this time out, unlike his previous appearance on the panel on EPISODE #746 of January 10, 1965 when his full name was displayed on his nameplate. And Bennett once more introduces "our panel moderator" by his correct full name of John Charles Patrick Croghan Daly - only he incorrectly pronounces the fourth name as "Cro-gan" rather than "Cro'an" as he had in the past.
      (4) Two of the movies that starred tonight's guest panelist, Michael Caine, would be remade in the new millennium, with Jude Law in the roles Mr. Caine played in the original versions. The first, of course, was the title role of "Alfie" which was remade in 2004. The second was the 2007 remake of "Sleuth" in which Mr. Law played the same role of "Milo Tindle" which Mr. Caine played in the 1972 original - while Michael himself, in the newer version, played the Laurence Olivier role of "Andrew Wyke." Incidentally, the original 1972 version of "Sleuth" was directed by onetime "WML?" guest panelist Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Lord Olivier never appeared on "WML?" in either its network or syndicated versions.
      (5) "WML?" CREDITS CRUNCH WATCH: The January 22, 2008 airing of this episode by GSN once more utilized the thoroughly reprehensible, loathsome and vile "crunching" of the end credit sequence.
      (6) Following the January 22, 2008 airing of tonight's show, GSN ran the May 28, 1962 edition of "I've Got a Secret." On this occasion, Henry Morgan was sub-host while Garry Moore was on vacation, and his regular panelist's seat was filled by Buddy Hackett, who sat in with the other regular panelists Bill Cullen, Betsy Palmer and Bess Myerson. The celebrity guest was country singer (and future sausage magnate) Jimmy Dean, fresh off his Number One hit "Big Bad John" - and one year before he began his 1963-1966 ABC variety show. - W-B (2008)
