James Cagney, John Daly, and "What's My Line?"

Here is another enjoyable "Mystery Guest" segment, from a 1960 broadcast of What's My Line? It features the immensely talented James Cagney.

The host of What's My Line?, during the seventeen years it aired on network television (1950-1967), was John Daly.

Daly--well-known, prior to What's My Line?, for the years he spent as a network radio reporter, correspondent, and anchor--brought great skill, erudition, and charm, to his What's My Line? hosting duties.

"What's My Line?," and Eva Marie Saint

I've recently been watching (on YouTube) a number of "Mystery Guest" segments from the television program What's My Line? 

Here's one of the many very enjoyable segments I've seen. It is from 1958, and features the great Eva Marie Saint.

At the time, as noted during the telecast, she was in New York for the filming of Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest.

Jacqueline T. Lynch, "New England Travels"

A few days ago, novelist and playwright Jacqueline T. Lynch posted a very kind review of my book, on her blog "New England Travels":

The review includes the following comment, which, needless to say, I am quite touched by:  "Mr. Fielding manages to write a very personal memoir about a story that was not his own, and that is something wondrous." 
In the right column of Ms. Lynch's blog, there are links for her various novels (as well as books of non-fiction).  
Here is the amazon link for one of her books--the paperback edition of her mystery novel Speak Out Before You Die. The novel, also available as an e-book, is the second in Ms. Lynch's "Double V Mysteries" series.
Here, too, is an amazon link for her book States of Mind: New England, which is a collection of pieces from her "New England Travels" blog. The book is available both as a trade paperback and as an e-book.
Lastly, here is the link for Ms. Lynch's web site.
I am looking forward to reading her books.
