I've got a secret:

Week 399, 2/3/60

Guest Host: Betsy
Panel: Henry, Carol Burnett, Durward Kirby, Bess
Program Staff: Hazel Oxholm
Lighting: Sal Bonsignore

The set is redecorated to add a "feminine touch." Norman Paris plays accordion and piano on stage accompanied by women on harp and double bass.

Hallbjörg Bjarnadóttir Nielsen, Reykjavik: "I have a soprano singing voice ... I also sing tenor and baritone ... I also sing bass." Sings "Ol' Man River" like Paul Robeson and "Ain't Misbehavin'" like Louis Armstrong.

The rest of the episode:

Some dresses are modeled, and then the models are revealed to have what at the time were male-dominated jobs. May Grayson is a bartender, Loretta Rudney is a Pinkerton private investigator, Margaret Allen is a barber, and Rona Levine is a doorman.

Edna McKuen, Phoenix: "My home town voted me Man of the Year" (only female member of the city council).

Guest Jean-Pierre Aumont: In response to the "feminine" theme, he claims that one area in which men still have it over women is designing women's fashions.

To "prove" this, Henry and Durward are provided with materials from which they are to design dresses for Carol and Bess.
