Bennett Cerf

Post by Kitty » Fri Mar 16, 2018 7:00 pm

Aside from being very good looking, Bennett Cerf seems like a very nice fellow. He has a pretty cool name, too! Did you know he was married to Ginger Rogers' cousin? He was a famous publisher, and a founding member of the publishing company Random House.

He was a regular panelist on What's My Line.

Yes, Bennett is one of my favorites. He was a fixture on WML. I think he was very close with a lot of the great writers of the day, too. He also wrote several books of humor (he was a pun addict). I almost bought one on Abebooks awhile back.

I didn’t know that about his marriage.

I didn't know, either, until Ginger was a contestant! Someone mentioned her being related, and this is what Google revealed! ☺️
