Just one more in our ongoing series of remarkable Mystery Guest segments on What's My Line? with stunning contestants that you can't even imagine seeing on a game show today. Or even then, for that matter. But they got them. This is your typical, run-of-the-mill guest...Carl Sandburg. The great fun of the segment is how he dives in the festivities and clearly is having a good time using a fake voice we find out he was practicing.
It comes from the Fall of 1960, which comes into play when he talks briefly about the coming election. The panelists here are three standards, Bennett Cerf, Arlene Francis (who it turns out knows Sandburg a bit, which made him nervous about being "found out," Dorothy Kilgallen, and first-time panelists Nick Adams, who at that time was a big TV star for his series, The Rebel.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
