Interestingly, Camelot was written by Lerner and Loewe—Alan Jay Lerner was a Harvard classmate of John F. Kennedy. The title song quickly became an unofficial theme of the administration. Jackie confided that John would listen to it before bed in an interview which ran in the December 6, 1963 issue of LIFE Magazine.

  1. Disappointed episode. No daily double correct answers resulted a shutout.

  2. Will the REAL J! p-l-e-a-s-e come back!
    I miss the shows with day-to-day continuity, where scores really matter.
    Next week I hope?
