Thanks for the compliments on our TV appearance. Frankly I was shocked and embarrassed, being put on the spot totally unprepared. I still haven’t gotten over it.

My Dear Betty [Healy]:-
    Thanks for the compliments on our TV appearance - frankly I was shocked & embarrassed, being put on the spot totally unprepared - I still have'nt gotten over it.
    I appreciated the honor bestowed, but sincerely wished it had never happened - I felt like 5 million viewers were saying "So what"!! seemed like a nightmare.
    I enjoyed seeing some of the old gang again after the show, had a lovely party at the Roosevelt Hotel.
    Am delighted to hear you are going to eventually go to Las Vegas & get into business again - working for Tony Cornero would be a stepping stone to having your own place later on, I think its wonderful Betty, you will gain lots of experience without any risk & should build up a name a great clientele. There was something on TV last night about Government land lots in Vegas to be sold for 50 Dollars down, I think it was the same deal they had in Palm Springs a 1itle while ago. I imagine you could get the full information from the Vegas Chamber of Commerce - might be worth your while to look into it.
    All for now Betty. Mrs L. wants to thank you for your nice compliment & joins in every good wish to Wayne & self.
    Bye now & God Bless.
                Sincerely always:-

THIS IS YOUR LIFE - DECEMBER 1, 1954
This Is Your Life
Note from the Editor

On December 1, 1954, Ralph Edwards of television’s This Is Your Life, surprised The Boys who were lured to the Knickerbocker Hotel for what they were led to believe was a meeting with producer Bernard Delfont. Instead, they were whisked onto the live television program, where Mr. Edwards told their life story and introduced them to guests from their past.
