Raquel Welch

See if you can spot all the ways the world has changed since 1966/67 or thereabouts - when this appearance of Raquel Welch on What's My Line? was originally broadcast.

1) The panelists are dressed formally - and it's not even New Year's Eve.
2) Raquel "signs in" using cursive. Does the human race even know cursive any more?
3) "Have you appeared in the New York theater?" Would a Broadway star be caught dead on a modern game show?
4) Notice how, on Raquel's exit, the men stand and the ladies remain seated. Is that still accepted behavior?
