  • Notes

    • This was a night the panel probably wished the network had preempted. The first contestant probably set a record for the most consecutive "no" votes ever given. She must have given nine straight "no" votes before guest panelist Aliza Kashi finally got a "yes." They did relatively better with the burglar alarm saleswoman, whose product included a feature which was a precursor to the Life Alert system (their ads say, "I've fallen and I can't get up.") The panel did manage to get one right, though. Miss Kashi, who up until this point had a disastrous debut, made up for her inexperience and correctly identified mystery guest Abbe Lane. Miss Lane was on the show to promote her current engagement at the Persian Room of the Plaza Hotel. She also mentioned that she would be appearing on "The "Ed Sullivan Show" the very next Sunday. - Sargebri (2004)

      During the introductions, Bennett mentions how the Kansas City Chiefs had been beaten earlier that day. A few hours before this episode aired, The Chiefs, who were champions of the American Football League, took on the Green Bay Packers, who were the champions of the National Football League, in a certain football game known at the time as the NFL/AFL World Championship. Several years later, this game would retroactively be called Super Bowl I. In fact, this annual game was not known as the Super Bowl until the third game. This was before the game became the mega-event that it has become over the years. However, it was big enough that both CBS and NBC broadcast the game. The game was a result of the merger of the NFL and AFL that year. The AFL would be absorbed into the older NFL and would become the AFC (American Football Conference) featuring all ten teams that made up the AFL, plus the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Cleveland Browns, and the Baltimore (later Indianapolis) Colts, who were in the NFL. Ironically, the Colts were the first NFL team to lose to an AFL team when they lost 16-7 to the New York Jets in Super Bowl III. As for the football game today, the Packers, led by future Hall of Fame coach (and next week's mystery guest) Vince Lombardi, defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, led by another future Hall of Famer Hank Stram, 35-10. In fact, the Packers would win the next Super Bowl, defeating the Oakland Raiders 33-14. However, the AFL got a measure of revenge when the New York Jets, featuring future Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath, defeated the Baltimore Colts, featuring another Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas, 16-7 in what was considered one of the biggest upsets in sports history. - Sargebri (2004)
