Because Groucho spent the whole previous week’s show talking to Esther Bradley, there was no time for any of the other couples. As a result, Esther and her partner Joe, along with Pat Hunt (the young soldier who filled in for her in the quiz) return to compete against this week’s other couples.
Groucho does a little bit of dancing with Mama Schwartz around 3:00.
COUPLE #1: Helen “Mama” Schwartz / Isaac Kashdan, international grand master chess player
COUPLE #2: Rose Westlake, who performs under the name of “Fifi the Sheep-headed Girl”, and demonstrates where the name comes from by removing her hat / Miguel Pinell, from Nicaragua
COUPLE #3: Esther Bradley / Joe Egbert / Pat Hunt return.
