In which a blindfolded Steve Allen tries to guess Roy Campanella's identity from the sound of his deep voice. Yes, that is the concept behind the classic TV show "What's My Line".
A few observations:
- Check out the wicked part in host John Charles Daly's hair. It looks like he's got a line of grout in there.
- Roy Campanella was the NL MVP that year: 41 homers and 141 RBI as a catcher. He was MVP in '51 and '55, too...as was crosstown rival and fellow catcher Yogi Berra. Mike Piazza eats goat poop compared to these two.
- I keep waiting for the lady to ask whether he's a Negro or not. You have to know this is going through her mind.
Have a nice weekend, all 63 of you!
