  • Notes

    • REVIEW: This was a fair night for the panel as they went home with a .500 record by going 2 for 4 on the evening. In the first game, the panel was absolutely stumped by the beautiful English blackjack dealer. In the second game, after just one "no," guest panelist Mel Ferrer made it a quickie when he guessed that the young gentleman from Australia was a kangaroo keeper at Expo '67 in Montreal. However, in all honesty, the young man did give out a lot of information when John introduced him, especially when he said that he was working at Expo 67. In the mystery guest round, Arlene correctly identified the Supremes. The girls were on the show to promote their engagement at the Copacabana as well as to promote their tour, which included stops in Baltimore and Los Angeles. In the final game of the evening, the panel ran out of time while questioning the somewhat spaced out looking girl chauffeur. As a result, she won the full prize by default. - Sargebri (2008)

      FAREWELL SUZY!!! This was the final appearance of Aileen "Suzy Knickerbocker" Mehle on the panel. In all, Suzy made 11 appearances on the show: ten as a guest panelist and one as a mystery guest. Suzy definitely was one of the finest female guest panelists in the history of the show. In fact, her very first appearance on the show was one of the finest by a rookie in the history of the show. However, her most famous game came in a loss, when, as a surprise, her son Roger Mehle appeared as a contestant while Suzy was a guest panelist. When Roger's name was revealed and Suzy took off her blindfold, you could see the true emotion of a mother come out as Suzy cried tears of joy to see her son. She definitely was one of a kind. - Sargebri (2008)

      THE SUPREMES: This was the second and final appearance by the Supremes on WML. Little did anyone know that this would be one of the final appearances by the group's original lineup. Two months after this appearance, Florence Ballard, who was considered the best singer among the trio, would be fired because of her increasing alcohol abuse as well as chronic depression. Sadly, she would die nine years later in 1976. As for the group, after Flo's firing, she was replaced by former Bluebelle Cindy Birdsong and the group was rechristened Diana Ross and the Supremes. The group would continue on in this formation until Diana, who was being groomed for a solo career, left the group in 1970. However, the Supremes, now led by Mary Wilson, would continue to record and perform until 1977 when the group officially disbanded. - Sargebri (2008)
