the delightful star of stage and television miss Arlene Francis and now a gentleman who went into
production today with a new play the hidden river but most importantly he has
been asked by left on my left for ten years my husband Martin Gable on my left one of New York’s most famous
ladies Miss Dorothy Kilgallen and on my left someone who needs no
introduction our beloved panelist who is also a
publisher mr. Bennett Cerf Marnie Arlene I knew art I knew your
husband was gonna get here someday and on my left the gentleman who was
just had a prolonged by cached in Mexico two whole days our panel moderator
newscaster mr. John Charles Daly good evening actually one thing even if
the risk of having it sound a bit like a commercial that I wanted to talk about I
got into Mexico City Friday night I went done for the opening of the new
continental Hilton Hotel and this is a new culture American culture the new one
North American culture and this is an old world and yet to show how small the
world is and how much we’re a part of it I went up to my room and pulled back the
curtains as a big sign said Remington Rand well we’ve got Arlene and her
husband tonight too full so I think we ought to get down to the business of the
evening immediately because we’d like to see what we can do with this
husband-and-wife team both very brainy and very nice people but we like to
knock them around a bit if we can we’re going to have a famous mystery guest
before the panel a bit later in the show and we’ll meet our first challenger in
just 30 seconds this Christmas lots of lucky ladies will
get new ladies electric shavers but which shaver
they hope the remington duchess the only lady shaver with one shaving surface
gentle and efficient enough for both legs and underarms no mistake for the
duchess and this one big surface smoothes your skin faster than all other
ladies shavers gentler than harsh blades nicer than messy creams a real ladies
Christmas present the remington duchess in pink and now let us meet our first contestant
will you come in and sign in please Thank You mr. X and I think since we’re
going to use mr. X we won’t ask any questions about where you came from and
I promise to get these people to buy some more chalk could you come over here
and sit down with me please you familiar with our scoring system
fine on that basis let’s let the people at home and those who have been nice
enough to come and join us in the theater know exactly what your line is this wreck is self-employed and let’s
begin the general questioning with Bennett Cerf mr. X
your face looks vaguely familiar to me is it is it a face that we have seen in
photographs in the newspapers within the past year I would say it’s possible
Bennett but we wouldn’t be able to guarantee that you have her happen would
it be rather in the theater in book sections than the front page I think
there we would have to say that it’s possible again but at the same time we
can’t rule out the front page I can’t would it be have you written a
book within the past two years mr. X are you a professional man do you have to
have a degree in order to carry on the work that you do no no to down a date to
go mr. Martin Gable people come to you for you to exercise your professional
services for them not always that would be yes and no what is enough do they
come to you more often than you go to them I think actually Martin if you
don’t mind this is one where we could get into such fine equations is to just
tangle things up is is the professional service that you perform is that a
mental service rather than a physical one yes there is yes it’s more there is
a physical application as there is in most instances but actually it is
fundamentally a mental mental allies when you perform your service you
have a piercing eye in the strict when you perform your service does your
patient or the object of your attention change in his attitude and the course of
your services Martin I wish you hadn’t asked that question I wish I hadn’t too John I withdraw all
right do you perform your service indoors indoors yes
is it more applicable applicable de man or two women that can’t be answered yes
or no do you want to ask is it more Act is it more applicable two men three down
and seven to go mrs. Kilgallen I could any one of us on this panel
enjoy or avail ourselves of your services you could certainly yeah I
don’t do you ever use writing paper in your work uh would you use a kind of
paper that would have a more specific term than just writing paper yes would
you have anything to do with the world of music yes
are you a musician yes are you also a composer yes
well now it’s the stupidity Department going do you compose
what would loosely be termed popular rather than classical music sometimes
mm-hmm in the loose characterization certainly some of them our guests work
is in the popular of the a do you also compose something that might be planed
on the concert stage no lately no I would not say that at present we could
say that that’s four down and six to go mister sir
have you ever done the score of a musical show that makes it 5.5 to go
miss Francis have we made it clear that mr. X is a writer rather than a
conductor was that made it is agreed that he writes and ready right have you
ever written a song that has been on the hit parade yes are you on the hit parade
at the present time yes I can’t get beyond green door have you ever written
anything that Elvis Presley has done I guess it unfortunately no 6040 go mr.
Gable are you a member of the American Society of composers and publishers no pardon me uh-huh all right that’s seven down and
three to go but it was a very good question
did you ask yeah this is the singing commercial right at the end all singing
commercial right is his name is Dimitri Tiomkin Yes Martin. mr. Duncan has written scores with many
great scores for pictures haven’t you yet Oh actually but high noon high and
mighty these have become classical classic and modern American music and
the hit parade area now is the friendly persuasion needed the score for the
picture and of course wrote the song and he’s not asking or BM you know I
remember a friend Society forgive me but are you not the gentleman that made the
marvelous speech of the award dinners last night
repeat this speech come on let me fit the theme before you do actually mr.
champion is 1 Oscars for his work and very properly so and was called to the
podium to receive his Oscar for his compositions in the field of the movie
and mr. champion then said at the microphone she was a little bit nervous
and then also I was a little bit reluctant to make compliments to my
producer whom I consider very times my enemies and my directors the same thing
so I decided to thank people who really seriously believe every composer in
special popular field and in special motion picture is entitled to remember
sometimes I begin to speak to very serious and very extremely I Brown
musical circles of Hollywood remember to them about Beethoven Brahms
I think discovered Brahms Mozart then I said about Johann Strauss then some
people know richard strauss then they took about little Oscar Strauss then
they begin to laugh and I’m going little but what if you gave begin to mention
maybe 50 more names so that was so loud that when I left I saw very mad face of
Bob Hope and of Jerry Lewis you panel I think we gave you a rough time
with that bit see what we can do with the second challenger will you come in
and sign in please Isabelle Hemphill is that right mrs. hem
pill where are your problems oh you okay person what a wonderful city
would you come over here and join me you can sort of take a good look at the
panel as you tell me whether or not you know how we keep score yes I do fine
then let’s focus at home and our friends here in the theater know exactly what
your line is which is Hemphill is self-employed and
let’s begin the general questioning with martin gable is there a product
connected with what you do yes there is is it something you do in the employ of
a company yeah is that company a company interested in
making profits yeah is it something that is more seasonal and all year round and
it’s useful yes you could say that I would say that it’s it to the degree
that you would judge its usefulness by the need for application you would
describe it as seasonal actually I was thinking of its intrinsic usefulness
jungle I let that or you let me pass is it something that is more useful to the
male sex than to the female is it something that improves the general
well-being of the male sex that portion of the sex abuses it I think it might is it something that I would be up to
want to buy for myself is it something which when I applied it in whatever form
would improve me in some way I just want you to remember Martin I didn’t answer
the pre the next preceding question so not only that you’ve been very polite
over wedges I would say that if you chose to apply it that you would
consider that you were benefited thereby would it be correct to say that wherever
I may have may apply it it wouldn’t be seen no that wouldn’t be correct to say
that’s 1.92 Kilgallon well I would like to go on record first of all by saying
that I don’t think Martin could be improved in any way but if it is
something that would show and it is something that both men and women could
use but men more likely that it would it be considered an aid to beauty or
handsomeness I don’t think you could call this an eight the beauty or
handsome this know to dominate to go mister sir miss missus Hemphill is it
possible that this product is consumable is it something that is applied to the
person yes yes it’s applied to the person in its utilization it is direct
references would it ever be considered anything in the apparel department
it could be considered is it something that you put on yes and as my husband
discovered it’s something that does not show that no did not show
I’m sorry I missed that Martin I’m not paying attention to you it’s just like
at home you’re new it does show and it is seasonal could you ever wear it if
you were at the seashore I mean actually as we said it’s seasonal and it’s in its
use you know and if you were at the seashore and felt you needed it you sure
could would you wear it above the waist yes
would you is it made of material yes it is is it something that in any way
protects you against anything else I don’t mean other people is it
something that might come up as high as the neck on a cold day actually this
isn’t fair all the cars because you’d never get this one but it’s a joy
forever Martin’s gonna just remember Martin I didn’t answer those questions
the bulletproof mrs. Hampton makes night caps for bald-headed men one more year I’ll be ready John around
of my join me I don’t know we will we’ll be with you looks like something one of
those movie stars might have left around we’ll leave that right where it is mr.

in place panel yes good will you come in mystery Challenger and sign in please all right panel as you know in the case
of our mystery Challenger we go to a different form of questioning you asked
one question at a time in turn moving clockwise and we begin it with Dorothy
Kilgallen are you in show business I presume that’s a girl is it are you a
girl are you are you a lady obviously not as
you know are you in the field of the theater yeah mr. Gable are you now
appearing in a Broadway play Ellen oh do you have more than 10 costume changes in
it oh that’s one that at night to go to serve well is it then a play that has no
music in it you mean is it a musical row I say it is an is it a non-musical if
she hasn’t got a lot of changes of costume I would rule out Merman and
Holliday it’s not a musical that’s what is okay fine miss Francis miss Francis
is it serious rather than comic oh well mr. Gable as it opened in the past two
months yeah miss Kilgallon oh are you are you announcing you just being funny
with your voice no that makes it two down a date to go mr. serve have you are
you also well-known in motion pictures yeah miss Francis my husband just give
me an idea who you are and since this is his first public
appearance on a panel I’m gonna let him go ahead and give you the gist you
notice the range of my wife’s talent are you Shelley Winters that sounded all like Marlon Brando I
don’t know how you got it down all that way God if you really want to see Marlon
Brando one of the reasons I came on the show is to get her to plug for the
Actors Studio benefit which is a week from Tuesday night it’s the opening of
baby dollars a year Victoria Theatre and afterwards at the Waldorf Astoria
there’s a big supper dance and I hope you’ll all come to it oh thank you very
much for coming to see it and band oh are you going to be there miss one
yes I am sir there’s been it always just a critical and right question – and we
got the right end so thanks a lot for being our guest and for joining us and
what thank you you let’s see what we can do with the panel
and a very tricky last Challenger will you come in please sir and sign in Charles black how are you well panel I will tell you that mr.
black is from Scotland mr. black you know how we keep score yeah fine the
Nets let everybody at home and those in the theater know exactly what mr. blacks
line is able to very quickly you’ll have
something like two and a half minutes in which to do it will tell you that mr.
blacks is self-employed and let’s begin with Miss Harle impression you didn’t
tell us where mr. black it was from Oh from Scotland yes that’s
nice isn’t it mr. black is do you have any product at all in your work no none
our uniform down to nine to go mr. legal in Scotland and illegal here yes you’re a bookmaker yes having attended the races in the British
Isles from time to time that was really more or less the only profession I could
think of particularly like a bookmaker there is no way that a bookmaker looks
John I’ve lost to them all good you can spot them real quick
well mr. black certainly the first thing we do is flip all these they can’t do
that to anybody who comes all the way from Scotland to see us not
how long are you in the States for another part nice another fortnight would you do a signal Oh to force the
way you do when they’re making book in London because it’s so different from
the way we do it you’re not allowed to do a dog here are you we’re not allowed
to do it at all that’s what I knew what I did so different well that’s even even
the bet is even that’s five to four five to four that six to four uh-huh that’s
seventy four and that’s five to two what do you do when you stick your fingers no
I let us turn a question that was thank you very much here is the other thing I wanted to do I
think you all are familiar with the details the president has asked the
American people to raise five million dollars in emergency funds to help those
who are fighting for freedom in Hungary the Red Cross as you know is a part of
the great American campaign and effort to get some help to the Hungarians who
are going to need shelter and food and medicines and in great quantities
because they’re still fighting for freedom when it comes down to is if we
can’t do better than five million dollars for these people who are
fighting for the principles we believe in and I think perhaps we better all
duck our heads in shame so talk to your Red Cross or to care or to your church
and send the money where you’re told to send it and send as much as you possibly
can and now until next week this is John
Daly saying good night mr. Lee I think it’s terribly revealing that you would
know a bookmaker as soon as you saw you bought some other kind of bookmakers
later just to show you I’m mixed up tonight let’s hear a word from our
