  • Notes

    • For tonight's games, the panel had a so-so night. They were totally stumped by both of the regular contestants, but Phyllis was able to figure out that the second mystery guest was George Segal. He promoted his 1966 film which is opening on December 15, 1966, "The Quiller Memorandum." Also mentioned was another film that Segal made that year, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. This was Bob Crane's first, and only, appearance on the panel. He was in the middle of his second season playing the wily "Colonel Hogan" on the popular 1965-1971 POW sitcom, "Hogan's Heroes." John frequently referred to Bob as "Colonel" this evening. Crane would later gain infamy for his off-set personal activities. Many felt that his obsession with making pornographic videos would lead to his unsolved 1978 brutal murder in a Scottsdale, Arizona hotel room, just three weeks shy of his 50th birthday. In 2002, the film "Auto Focus" was released. It was based on Robert Graysmith's 1993 book, "The Murder of Bob Crane." Greg Kinnear played the part of Bob Crane. This drama was based on Crane's life, and concentrated on the more lurid aspects of his life and career. - Sargebri (2004)

      WILL THE REAL PANEL PLEASE STAND UP!!! - On the first game, it was very appropriate that Phyllis not only got to ask the first question, but that she also got to make the successful TTTT panel identification! What made it so very fitting was the fact that Phyllis was a regular panelist on the daytime "To Tell the Truth" until 1965. In addition, she would also occasionally work the nighttime version as well. Unfortunately, John failed to mention Phyllis' TTTT connection, but he did mention the fact that each of the TTTT gang had, at various times, sat in with the WML panel. Of course, Kitty Carlisle appeared on panel the week after Dorothy's passing, and Orson Bean had just been on the panel a couple of weeks earlier. The only person missing on this "TTTT Party Night" was the TTTT moderator himself, the congenial Bud Collyer. He hosted both the daytime version AND the nighttime version! - Sargebri (2004)

      The second contestant, Sue Cox, makes weekly predictions of football game scores for a Minneapolis TV station. After her game, Bennett asks her for a prediction on the NFL Championship game. He wants to know who will win if the Championship game ends up being played between Dallas and Green Bay. She predicts Green Bay to win by a margin of four points. She was very close, as Green Bay won 34-27 in the first of two exciting Championship games they would play. - Sargebri (2004)
