This is a fun "Mystery Guest" segment of What's My Line. The guest is composer Jerry Herman who wrote the score to such Broadway musicals as Hello, Dolly!, Mame, Milk and Honey, and more -- but what stands out here is that he's not even the Mystery Guest. It's early enough in his career that the panelists don't need blindfolds so they won't recognize him. He only signs in as "Mister X," since his name is at least known.
Fun too is that later in the show, there is a Mystery Guest -- Henry Fonda. Not a bad episode. I think I've posted the latter here before, but it's been a while, and there are likely some new visitors.
I think I have this linked up so that it starts at the Jerry Herman interview, though I'm not sure that's working. If not, just jump to the 3:14 mark. And for Henry Fonda, if you want to fast-forward, go to 16:44.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
