Storyline

Actress, movie star, Janet Leigh joins Dorothy Kilgallen, Fred Allen and Bennett Cerf as a guest panelist for the week, temporarily replacing Arlene Francis. The panelists try to guess the lines of a young woman from Fort Lauderdale, Florida who models girdles, she was identified by Dorothy and Fred Allen. Also, a piano tuning man from Los Angeles who tunes Liberace's pianos, no one figured out the mans identity. The first mystery guest was husband of Janet Leigh (Tony Curtis) who had to withdraw himself after his cover was blown earlier in the week. The stand by second mystery challenger was the captain of the US Davis Cup tennis team, Billy Talbert, who recently won the World Davis Cup in Australia, Dorothy identified Billy Talbert surprisingly quickly.

Trivia

When the first Mystery Guest, Tony Curtis (then-husband of guest panelist Janet Leigh) was seated, moderator John Daly asked the panel to remove their blindfolds without them making a single guess. Daly explained that a Midwestern newspaper had printed that Tony Curtis was appearing on that night's telecast. The second Mystery Guest was Bill Talbert, the 1954 U.S. Davis Cup captain (tennis), who appeared on short notice. See more »
