Many years ago (I believe it was 1968), Frank appeared on the game show What's My Line? as the Mystery Celebrity Guest. WML had on ordinary citizens who had extraordinary jobs, like beekeeper or snake charmer, what have you. To keep the audience coming back each week, I guess, the celebrity panel would don masks and a "suprize" guest would come out. On that occaision, Frank was the Mystery Man. Soupy Sales figured it out, but apparently nobody else knew who he was. There's a great photo of him hugging Arlene Francis afterwards, and she looks like she'd rather be anywhere else than there!<br>                                                 If anyone has The Game Show Network or has a tape of the show, could ya tell me about it? I'd love to know what voice he affected to mask his identity. Was it the "weasly" one or what?Anyway, it would be great to know a little about this appearance--perhaps scan a photo? Thanks in advance..... ;D

^^^^^ Cheers Mr. Nice Guy ^^^^^

I had this on a dvd of FZ rarities that I bought from a nice man in Germany
during my e bay addiction years.....Unfortunately, despite extensive labeling
on both the cover and the disc, an obvious abundance of blank discs at hand,
and no evidence of a psychiatric illness or temporary blindness, the dvd was
still somehow recorded over, sacrificed for a not very important game of rugby.....

If anyone has the complete episode, I would be interested in seeing Karen Sperling's appearance.
