  • Notes

    • REVIEW: This was a fairly good night for the panel as they went a very respectable 2 for 3 on the evening. It was also "ladies night" because all the contestants, including this evening's mystery guest, were women. In the first game, Bennett correctly guessed that the grandmotherly lady from Phoenix, Arizona was the personal pilot of Senator Barry Goldwater. In fact, during the post game conversation, it was revealed that she taught both the Senator and his brother flying lessons. In the second game, the panel's luck went downhill because they were totally stumped by the rather cherubic lady who made thimbles. In the mystery guest round, Arlene, after the door was opened for her by Phyllis, correctly guessed that the mystery guest was Jane Fonda. Jane was on the show to promote her latest film, "The Game is Over," which was directed by her then husband Roger Vadim. John also brought up the fact that her father Henry and her little brother Peter were on the show a few weeks earlier and that now the whole family had appeared. This was definitely a nice way to end a very great night for the panel. - Sargebri (2008)

      GOLDWATER: As was mentioned in the first game, Mrs. Reinhold was the personal pilot of Senator Barry Goldwater. However, if things had gone as planned in 1964, Mrs. Reinhold wouldn't have played a role in one of the most ambitious plans in presidential campaigning history. In 1963, when Senator Goldwater was planning on running for the presidency, it was widely assumed that the 1964 election would be between him and President John F. Kennedy. The two candidates, who, despite their ideological differences, were very close friends, decided that they would tour the country by train and at each stop they would give speeches as part of their campaigns. Sadly, this plan never came to fruition due to President Kennedy's assassination. - Sargebri (2008)

      THE FONDA FAMILY: As John had mentioned following the mystery guest round with Jane Fonda, Jane's father Henry and her brother Peter were on the show a few weeks earlier. Interestingly, other than documentaries, all three Fondas never appeared in a film together. However, in 1981, Jane and Henry finally worked together in what would be Henry's final film, the classic "On Golden Pond." The film had a semi-autobiographical tone to it due to the fact that it was about the strained relationship between a father and his daughter. The film wound up winning three Academy Awards including Best Screenplay, Best Actress for Katherine Hepburn and Best Actor for Henry. In fact, this turned out to be the only Oscar win in his long and illustrious career. - Sargebri (2008)
