Welcome to a new feature here at the Café: Yes, it's time for What's My Wednesdays!
I have been spending an inordinate amount of time in recent weeks watching back episodes of one television's early greats, the panel show What's My Line?, and now I think it's your turn, too. These programs are a glimpse into a vanished show business, one that is infinitely more polite, enormously more charming, and - something I find deeply refreshing - a great deal more middle-aged.
I thought we'd kick it off with a snippet from 53 years ago tonight. It can be rather a surprise when you watch one of these and find that that the guest is still with us, as here with dear Miss Carol Burnett. She almost stumps the panel, but you have to get up early to fool Miss Arlene Francis (with whom I am totally and unreservedly in love).
So if your blindfolds are in place - Mystery Challenger, sign in please!
