Final Dorothy Kilgallen Appearance on Whats My Line This is the final nine minutes of the November 7, 1965 episode of What's My Line. It's shows the conclusion of Joey Heatherton's mystery guest appearance, a commercial for Kool cigarettes, and a regular challenger--a female football writer. Panelist Dorothy Kilgallen fittingly identified the final contestant's occupation. Kilgallen, age 52, was found dead in her home the next morning. The circumstances surrounding her untimely death have raised a few eyebrows over the years.

This is a remarkable clip! First off, Joey Heatherton. As a boy I thought she was the most beautiful and sweetest lasy on the whole planet! So thanks for thst much of the clip.

I remember my mom and some other relatives sitting around after dinner and talking about Dorothy Kilgallen's death. I had no clue who this woman was then. But to hear my mom and them associate her death with JFK really caught my attention.

Thanks for the post!

Glad you enjoyed the clip, ChowDog.

Dorothy Kilgallen identified two of the four contestants on her final show. (The other one was a female dynamite salesman.)

Dorothy seems in good spirits here, so I don't buy the argument that her death was a suicide. Maybe it was an accidental lethal combination of pills and booze. Maybe it wasn't.

I also remember this episode, even though I was a young kid, I do remember this particular episode. I also remember the next airing after Miss Kilgallen had passed and the host of the show talked about it for a few moments. It was very moving to say the least!
