  • Notes

    • REVIEW: This was a pretty good night for the panel. The first guest was hair stylist Vidal Sassoon. Normally, if a famous person is a contestant, the panel would be blindfolded. However, since Sassoon is from England and his face probably wouldn't be familiar to the panel, the WML executives decided to leave the blindfolds off. But, Arlene managed to identify him as guest panelist Henry Morgan was asking him a question. Morgan, of course, was on loan from the "I've Got a Secret" panel. Sassoon was, and still is, one of the most famous hair stylists in history. He invented the geometric way of designing hair. That is, to create a style based on the contours of the individual's face and bone structure. Sassoon was in town preparing for his upcoming wedding to Canadian-born actress Beverly Adams. A year earlier, she had appeared in the 1966 film "Birds Do It" with frequent WML mystery guest, and future panelist on the syndicated version, Soupy Sales. Perhaps Beverly's most famous role was that of sexy secretary/girlfriend "Lovey Kravezit" in Dean Martin's "Matt Helm" comedy adventure films from 1966-1967: The Silencers; Murderers' Row; The Ambushers. It was then Arlene's turn to really shine as she single-handedly guessed the fortune cookie manufacturer. Ironically, guest panelist Gypsy Rose Lee, who had a good time despite the fact she really didn't contribute much, had been to his factory a few days earlier. The panel also was successful in guessing mystery guest Ursula Andress. Miss Andress was on the show to promote the upcoming July release of the 1967 "James Bond" film "Casino Royale," in which she co-starred with frequent WML guest panelists Woody Allen and David Niven, as well as Peter Sellers in the role of "James Bond." That spy spoof film would go down in history as one of "the worst films of all time," according to the book of the same name. Also of note, Miss Andress would also mention the other "Bond" film that was released in 1967. Even though she didn't mention it by name, the film was titled "You Only Live Twice" and, as usual, starred Sean Connery in what many thought was his last appearance as "007." Of course, after skipping the 1969 film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," Connery would return to the series to star in the 1971 film "Diamonds Are Forever." After the game, as Miss Andress was leaving the stage, Henry Morgan definitely was checking her out. The panel did have one rough game as they tried to figure out the final contestant's occupation, but Bennett came up with the "last minute save" as he determined that she was a helicopter pilot. - Sargebri (2004)

      Here is an interesting fact about Gypsy Rose Lee: During her marriage to Alexander Kirkland, she gave birth to a son named Erik in 1944. However, the child was not Kirkland's. The father was really director Otto Preminger. Gypsy had pursued Preminger in hopes that he would father her child, which he eventually did. Erik didn't find out who his real father was until he became an adult. After Gypsy's death in 1970, Otto adopted Erik and the two remained close until Otto's death in 1986. - Sargebri (2004)
