Re: What's My Line

Here's another good one. Steve Allen had a talent for getting himself into trouble with certain lines of questioning. :lol:

Re: What's My Line

I'm not sure of the year, but it was pretty early on in the 50's, I'd guess. What I found most funny was Steve Allen trying to figure what in the world was going on with the audience's extreme reactions to his questions. That was classic. And did you notice how John Daly didn't ask her for any detai...
