    This brings back memories. It’s like seeing an old friend. Life was so much better then.

    Betsy Palmer was so great as the brassy blonde nurse in Mr. Roberts.

    I do recall something about 3 women all called “Helen Luth [sp]“, but this seems a little early (1960).

    0: 54 – 1:10 I can see Henry Morgan saying to the audience, “This is gonna be a long night, folks! I hope you brought along your pillows, your blankets, your alarm clock, your children, and your children’s sitter!”

    @AmosPressley My great grandmother had a party line down in her small town in Virginia….. It was a pain trying to make a phone call with someone else on the phone! She had it up until the mid 80′s.

    At 0:09, Garry Moore goes into “To Tell the Truth” mode a decade before he would end up hosting a syndicated remake of that particular show.

    @vantalge Nor unusual to hand the contestant a carton of cigarettes when it was the show’s sponsor.

  14. chaoscleaner says:

    @AmosPressley I admit to nothing!

  15. vantalge says:

    He’s got a lit cigarette going. Not unusual at all in that era.

    Wonder how many people today know what a party line is..

    There were several homes on our party line where I grew up. If you had told us that we would live to see individual family members, each with a phone they could carry around in their pocket, we would have said you were crazy.

    Did the run out of time on the show?

    Hold on…if I’m correct, these three ladies returned on I’ve Got A Secret about 5-6 years later when Steve Allen took over.
