What's My Line?

The most glamorous game show aired early in the age of television. In "What's My Line?" celebrities try to guess a guest's occupation through a series of yes or no questions.

I love the gentle jokes. I love the sponsorship. Such politeness in voice and dress.

"What's My Line?" ran for 17 years from 1950 to 1967 and for good reason is still entertaining today. It recalls an era when people would dress up to take an aeroplane. What a time! When great TV involved a few celebrities playing a simple parlor game. How did they figure out the magic formula so early on?
