  • Notes

    • REVIEW: This was a so-so performance for the panel as they had a .500 record for the night. In the first game, "To Tell the Truth" panelist Orson Bean, who was the male guest panelist for the evening, was given credit for correctly guessing that the contestant from Canada was a salt salesman. In the second game, Arlene correctly guessed that the lady from Australia via China was an orchestra conductor. However, her correct identification came after all the cards had been flipped. In the mystery guest round, Sue correctly identified Michael Caine. Of course, this was fairly early in Michael's career, after he had his breakout role in "Alfie," which was well before he became a two-time Oscar winner. In the final game, the panel ran out of time, so the manager of the Empire State Observatory won the full prize by default. - Sargebri (2008)

      DID ORSON BRING CIGARS? As John mentioned during the pre-game chat, Orson Bean had recently become a father on October 13, 1966 when his son Max was born. Also, when Orson was introduced by Arlene, it was mentioned that "To Tell the Truth" would be returning to the prime-time lineup in a few weeks. TTTT had been moved to Sunday afternoons for a few months but eventually would move back to its customary Sunday night slot. Also, just prior to TTTT's return to prime-time, the entire panel (Orson, Kitty Carlisle, Tom Poston and Peggy Cass) made a team mystery guest appearance on WML. Ironically, the person who guessed them that night was Phyllis Newman, who was a regular panelist on the daytime version of TTTT until 1965, when the prime-time panel replaced the daytime panel. - Sargebri (2008)
