The past few weeks, I've taken a slight turn with the "Mystery Guest" segments of What's My Line?, posting appearances by a couple of famous celebrities who weren't actually Mystery Guests, no blindfolds needed. One was Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, and the other was Chester Gould, creator of Dick Tracy. Here's another. Someone SO hugely famous and known, but not yet at that time. It's Colonel Harland Sanders, of Kentucky Fried Chicken. He was just starting up his franchise at that point, so as highly recognizable as he was later to become (and soon to become), the panel doesn't have a clue who he was when he walked out, even in his trademarked white suite. Even signing in under his own name. You almost want to yell at the screen -- "What is wrong with you people??!! That is Colonel Sanders!!!!!" Somebody guess him, for goodness sake!!"
Here's the finger-lickin' good segment.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
