What's My Line with mystery guest Jack Benny (1954)

What's My Line with guest one of the guys who played Bozo the Clown (not Larry Harmon) (1969)

I posted the first half of this here before but now game show YouTuber AdamNedeff has posted the second half and it's interesting. It features the guy who just appeared as Bozo the Clown without his make-up. Not sure if this is the only episode of What's My Line in which the exact same guest appeared as the challenger in two consecutive installments.

What's My Line with mystery guests Robert Mitchum, Rhonda Flemming, Charlton Heston, Van Johnson, Fred Astaire, Eva Gabor, Mamie Van Doren etc.

I know it has kinda been the What's My Line/Hollywood Palace hour here at the site of late, but I'm kinda at the mercy of what appears on the internet in a given week and this just what's been popping up. I wish the YouTubers would just post the entire episodes of What's My Line as I don't get GSN, and even if I did, I have a lot of trouble sitting through their endless commercials.

Once upon a time Vancouver was a cool showbiz mecca of sorts, the testing ground for the new acts of crooners and comics before they opened in Vegas. Sadly the town is a mere shell of its former self these days.
