For New Yearâ€™s, we sum up all of 1939. First itâ€™s â€œInformation Pleaseâ€ from January of that year. The guest is Alexander Wolcott, the inspiration for the titular character in our previous episode, â€œThe Man Who Came to Dinner.â€ The panelists take questions from columnist Walter Winchell, make up poker hands from Mother Goose, and identify famous generals. Then on the â€œThe Jack Benny Showâ€ itâ€™s New Yearâ€™s Eve. Jack has a date, but forces conspire to prevent him from keeping it. Western star Andy Devine drops by to talk about taking his parents to Phil Harrisâ€™ wild late show.
