An Accidental Find:::::::

Postby Dan4th » Wed Mar 25, 2009 2:49 pm

I stumbled on this totally by accident while
doing a Lockheed search and thought you
folks might find it amusing.....





"What's My Line" was an American game show that
was on for decades largely because it was good!

What, Dave, has this been posted-up before?

OH! I get it! NO, I didn't see that when it first
aired, but I certainly COULD have!!!!!!!

It made me think of a certain diminutive fellow
at Bruntingthorpe with a nickname to match!

DXP:

Old Hitch was what we call in Maine a real
"Piece of Work". I knew you'd like it......

There isn't much out there that really shows
the man himself as he avoided one-on-one
interviews. This is a nice insight into his
personality......
