Season 10


Season 10, Episode 24: Episode #10.24

15 February 1959
Martin Gabel returns this week, along with guest panelist, Robert Cummings. Challenger Number 1 is Helen P. Mann, who hails from Boston. Her glamorous looks belie her 'line' - she tracks missiles at Cape Canaveral, Florida (to the degree that she can track the exact location of a nosecone.) The second challenger this evening is Mrs. Helen Mitchell, a Pennsylvania woman who owns her own business - she sells sewer pipe. Mystery guest, Maria Schell, appears tonight to promote her newly released film, "The Hanging Tree," starring Gary Cooper and marking the film bow of George C. Scott. It has just opened at the Roxy Theater in New York City and Miss Schell mentions her upcoming "Playhouse 90" presentation of "For Whom The Bell Tolls." Martin Gabel graciously remarks what a remarkable cast has been assembled for this television production. The final challenger of the evening is Mr. John Muldowney of Trenton, NJ - he makes flea powder. Before bidding the panel good night, John Daly mentions that Richard Boone, Martin Gabel's co-star in "The Rivalry" will appear next week as a guest panelist and that Bennett Cerf is still on vacation, "taking the South by storm."

A week that features three mystery guests. Panelists Dorothy Kilgallen, Bennett Cerf, Arlene Francis and Fred Allen begin the show blindfolded when trying to guess the identity of Richard Kollmar (Dorothy Kilgallen husband). None of the panelists identified Dorothy's husband. Afterwards, while not blindfolded, they take a stab at identifying a mysterious man from Scottsdale, AZ who doesn't sign his name on the board out of concern of being instantly recognized. It turns out he's artist George Petty, creator of then famous Petty Girl.(google Petty Girl for more information) Finally, the panel takes a whack at identifying the third celebrity mystery challenger Garry Moore.
