Henry J. Kaiser on "What’s My Line?"

Not long ago, we read about Henry J. Kaiser, whose estate in Portlock was seen as the home of Tokura (Ricardo Montalban) in “Samurai” (Season 1). Well, now, we can “meet” him in person on the September 29, 1957 edition of What’s My Line?

Mr. Kaiser stumped the panel, which isn’t terribly surprising, but at the end, he announced that the Hawaiian Village (now Hilton Hawaiian Village) would open in four weeks! He did not mention Hawaii Kai, which was not begun until 1959. My! How time has flown by!
