WHAT'S MY LINE? {MYSTERY GUEST: EDWARD R. MURROW} (TV)

Summary

One in this series of panel game shows in which celebrity panelists engage in witty banter as they try to guess the unusual occupations of the guests. On this program, host John Daly presides over a panel which consists of journalist Dorothy Kilgallen, publisher Bennett Cerf, actress Arlene Francis, and comedy writer Hal Block. Employing only yes-or-no questions, they try to discover the vocations of Percy Lowery, chairman of the Ohio parole board, and Frank Hazard, from Wilmington, Ohio, who raises insects for research. After donning blindfolds, the panelists then attempt to guess the identity of this week's mystery guest -- television and radio correspondent Edward R. Murrow. Murrow later discusses his involvement in creating a memorial fund honoring correspondents who died in World War II, and asks for viewer donations. Includes commercials.
