What's My Line? was one of network television's longest running and most beloved prime time game shows with a broadcast run of seventeen and one-half years. The game consisted of four panelists trying to guess the occupation of a guest contestant. The show was hosted by newsman John Daly and regular panel members were Dorothy Kilgallen (A gossip writer), Arlene Francis (an actress) and Bennett Cerf (a book publisher).

As the questioning rotated, a panel member asked questions and the guest would answer either "yes" or "no." A contestant received $5 for each "no" answer. Ten "no" answers ended the game in favor of the contestant. A mystery guest segment was also included in which the panelists were blindfolded. In this 40 episode set you will see some of the biggest names in show business . This set probably offers the opportunity to see these great stars when they were not performing but just having great fun.

The mystery guests were paid $500 as an appearance fee whether they won or lost the game. This was in addition to the maximum $50 game winnings. Guest panelists were paid $750 as an appearance fee. The regular panelists were under contract and were paid "much more". The quality is excellent for this old TV series.
