Premise: A long-running (and Emmy-nominated) game in which panelists tried to ID guest celebrities disguised with makeup and costumes. Mickey Mantle, for instance, was garbed as a Spanish cavalier and Mary Pickford was Mary, Queen of Scots; Gloria Swanson was Charlie Chaplin---and stormed out of the studio when her identity was guessed quickly. Through the 1950s, the show bounced around among NBC, CBS and ABC; and, in 1974, was revived in syndication with Richard Dawson as host.
