Storyline

Ralph Bellamy, Dina Merrill, Johnny Carson and Betty White are this evening's panelists, on this, the fifth anniversary broadcast of the series. Bud Collyer welcomes the panel and introduces Cecil Underwood, the very first contestant on the series. No one on the panel this evening was present that December 1956 evening, so they're at a loss, though Dina Merrill, Johnny Carson, and Betty White peg the authentic Mr. Underwood. As well, a gentleman impersonating Mr. Underwood five years before reprises his role as impostor tonight. The next round presents three young ladies who allege they are Miss Bonnie Guitar; a best-selling recording artist turned female jockey. Betty White is the only panelist to determine the true Bonnie Guitar. Finally, three gentlemen are presented, claiming to be Mr. Harold Baker; expert billiard instructor turned barber. The panel is stumped, and the three men have one thousand dollars to split among them. Written by johnmike59
