It's the Newlywed Game! Well, almost.

While I knew Arlene Francis had done some radio, I had no idea she hosted a show in the 1940's.

For those who don't "know" her, Francis is about the coolest female ever. She was a a mainstay on the tv game show, "What's My Line" for many years.

Seems to me that Arlene Francis is a heroine. Maybe not in the same ilk as Susan B. Anthony or Rosa Parks but certainly in the entertainment world.


  1. LOVE this program! If you're able to get ahold of a copy of Arlene's memoirs (the book has been OOP for several years, so you'll need to go through eBay or Amazon), she shares quite a few stories about Blind Date, and several of her other radio shows. The show also made a successful move to television on ABC, in 1951. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    I feel like I know Arlene as I have every one of the the "What's My Line" clips available on YouTube (there must 500 of them) as she comes across as a warm, very intelligent person with a very good sense of humor.

    She is a hero not only to women but to humanity.


Let me know what you think of this post or this site! It only take a few seconds and I'd really appreciate your comments...
