Henry Morgan

Are you familiar with him? I thought he was a bit annoying and pompous at first, but I quickly found that he's pretty funny and witty! I know of him from I've Got A Secret.

Yes, I'm very familiar with him. He turned up on several game shows of that era, including What's My Line? He's not one of my favorite panelists. For me the annoying and pompous outweighs the funny and witty. ;)

I remember one episode of What's My Line? where he was being kind of rude to Bennett Cerf during the introductions, and Bennett kind of gave it back to him. I can't remember which one that is.

Sometimes I wonder if those altercations are staged, especially back in those days. It seems like Arlene Francis is annoyed many times with the host, and I think it's done for laughs mostly. I could be quite wrong!

Take the time to watch this, if you can. You'll get a kick out of it, despite the poor quality.
