  • Notes

    • By the time What's My Line? was syndicated by Viacom, they featured black female guest panelists. GSN aired one such syndicated episode during their "Jerry Orbach Tribute." On January 9, 2005, GSN aired a syndicated episode which was originally taped on October 12, 1972. The host was Larry Blyden and the panel consisted of Soupy Sales, Melba Tolliver, Allen Ludden and Arlene Francis. Melba Tolliver was a television news reporter for WABC (Channel 7, WABC-TV, New York) on their "Eyewitness News" program. - Suzanne (2005)

      During game 2, we see some drama. Bennett spoke out of turn and interrupted Henry with the cards at "9 down and 1 to go," to offer help to Henry. Henry blurts out, "Oh stop it, Bennett." He proceeds to tell Bennett, "I don't care... it's my turn." The camera shows a silenced and glum Bennett resting his head in his hand. Soon Arlene speaks too, so Bennett speaks again also, offering the advice to Henry that "athletics" had not been asked about. Henry then sarcastically says to Bennett, "Well, if it ever gets up to you again, you do that." The audience laughs and so does Bennett. It's no wonder that the next time they clashed, it was the final straw for Henry. - Suzanne (2004)

      During Jill St. John's game, Henry Morgan asked her, "Are you under 25?" She replied, "yes" and then gave a sheepish grin. Per IMDB, her date of birth is August 19, 1940, so she was almost 27 years old when this episode was taped, and had turned 27 by the time this episode aired. John said that she had 5 unreleased movies, so she's been busy. Her five 1967 films are: "Banning," "Tony Rome," "The King's Pirate," "Eight on the Lam" and "How I Spent My Summer Vacation." - Suzanne (2004)

      During the end credits, Johnny Olson announced that this episode was prerecorded. From Gil Fates' logs, we know this episode was taped on June 4, 1967. - Suzanne (2004)
