Fred Allen's last episode of What's My Line
28 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode of What's My Line is very hard to watch because we all know it is Fred Allen's last episode. The segment with Emmett Kelley is funny however. Emmett provides one of those classic moments that make What's My Line so great. John Daly's tribute to Emmett at the end of his game was classy. I have no doubt it was difficult for Emmett to grunt his way through his game.

It is also sad that Dinah Shore's segment is lost to history. It seems strange to me that the rest of the show be intact while Dinah's appearance is lost. Oh well!!

In conclusion, this episode proves what comic geniuses Emmett Kelley and Fred Allen were and I miss them both.
