Episode Summary

EDIT
EPISODE #858
AIRED:
Game 1: Miss Elisabeth Christenson - "Fishing Instructor" (salaried; tall blonde; employed as a fishing pro, she teaches people how to fish on the 1000 ft. pier at the Newport Resort Hotel in Miami Beach, FL; the hotel also owns a yacht and she takes groups on ocean fishing expeditions; she has a history of boating and water sports in her family because her father in Sweden designs and builds boats; born in Sweden, now from Miami, FL)

Game 2: John Thompson - "Sharpens Pencils (in Pencil Factory)" (salaried; from Atkins, IA; he works at the Souvenir Pen and Pencil Company in Cedar Rapids, IA; they sharpen 50,000 pencils per shift; this game is notable for the segment where guest panelist Michele Lee points her pencil at the contestant during questioning, inadvertently generating audience laughter)

Game 3: Groucho Marx (10/2/1890 - 8/19/1977) (as Mystery Guest) He signed in by writing "take the lead out," which was a reference to the guest in the previous game.

Per Gil Fates' handwritten logs, there wasn't enough time for a person who "Designs And Makes Sunglasses." However, on the same day that this episode was taped, EPISODE #857 of April 16, 1967 was also aired live, directly after the taping of tonight's episode. The person who made sunglasses was a contestant on that live episode. Unfortunately, that episode is lost to history. - Suzanne (2004) . .moreless
