"What's My Line?" was a popular game-show hosted by John Daly that ran on CBS-TV from 1950-1967. As part of a promotional tour for 'The Sand Pebbles' Steve McQueen made a rare TV appearance as the 'Mystery Guest' on the show. The blind-folded panelists (Arlene Francis, Steve Allen, Helen Gurley Brown, and Bennett Cerf) tried to guess the identity of the 'Mystery Guest' by asking revealing questions. In an attempt to mislead the panelists McQueen used a voice that sounded very much like the veteran actor Walter Brennan. The original show aired December 18, 1966 (two nights before the film premiered at the Rivoli Theater in New York City).
