What's with the tiara? It made me remember something when I was growing up watching WML. I wasn't a big fan of Arlene back then. It was because she was the elder one on the show and I liked Gene Rayburn and Anita Gillette. To me she seemed very comfy on the show as if she owned it.
I remember seeing her on Match Game and thinking that she must have felt like she was slumming being there. Well, I'm older and wiser now and, of course, I love Arlene today but I can't help feeling sad for Hal Block not being a part of the group. They almost seem to be putting him at arms length. That plus Arlene wearing that ridiculous crown several weeks in a row. Maybe it was the time and that was a normal thing but there have been a few shots of the panel just before they are introduced to us and Arlene seems so bored with it all.....that is until she realizes the camera is on her. And while I'm on a tear- I think that Arlene looked ten times better in the sixties than in the early fifties. The fashion was so much nicer later on. She actually looks younger too in the sixties.
