My father was a contestant on this show. He passed away in 2000 and is missed very much. - Ms. Marion Medrano (2005)
REVIEW: After a good start, the panel had a particularly rough night this particular evening. Phyllis correctly guessed that Mrs. Hidalgo (aka Karen Gustafson) was a conductor, after Arlene opened the door wide open for her. When they got to the hammock maker, the panel got in trouble and got bogged down when they kept insisting that the product was worn. If they had asked if the product was a piece of furniture, or asked if the product could be sat on, maybe they would have had a chance. The panel was also completely stumped by mystery guest Raquel Welch. Miss Welch was on the show to promote her upcoming film, the spy thriller "Fathom." Of course, at the time of her appearance, she was perhaps the hottest American sex symbol of that era. She really showed why when she came out in one of the shortest mini-skirts ever worn on WML. In fact, the promotional material for the film "One Million Years B.C." showing her attired in a fur-lined bikini became a cultural icon of the mid-1960s. She continued to make films for years, including the 1970 camp classic "Myra Breckenridge," which has often been cited as one of the worst films of all time. In 2002, she took on the role of "Aunt Dora" on the acclaimed PBS series "American Family," which allowed her to pay tribute to her Latino roots. After the show, John mentioned that Tony was currently the commentator on the broadcasts of the Metropolitan Opera. Tony's love of opera would later be written into his future series, "The Odd Couple," as his character "Felix Unger" was also an opera fanatic. - Sargebri (2004)
Raquel Welch promoted her 1967 film, "Fathom," in which she co-starred with Anthony Franciosa. It is due to open in 5 or 6 weeks. She also made a reference that her 1966 film, "One Million Years B.C." had been in New York. - Suzanne (2004)
This is George Grizzard's only appearance as a guest panelist, and he performed very well indeed. He got a laugh when, instead of passing to Phyllis, yet still desperately wanting to get a "yes" answer so as not to lose the game, he asked the mystery guest if she were "under eight feet tall." This was really clever of him! - Suzanne (2004)
Tidbits: Bennett Cerf is vacationing in Japan. John estimated that Bennett was in Tokyo at the moment, and said Bennett had been excited and was looking forward to also visiting Hong Kong, Saigon and Bangkok. - Suzanne (2004)
George Grizzard (4/1/1928 - 10/2/2007)
