Backstage, other guests of the show were also affected: Bette Davis fainted into Mickey Rooney's arms. Political satirist, Mort Sahl, cried out, "Oh,______!" sufficiently loud so as to be heard by certain members of the audience including Msgr. Douglass van Haelen, Burke Yathrothe, and leopard trainer, Stickie Norton. Backstage, awaiting his turn, was British mathematician, Christopher Hooley, who was later to demonstrate that certain types of multinomial equations having rational solutions when solved for certain functions of determinate polynomial value can be solved for a single prime value holdings for non-singular cubic forms in at least forty variables. He was heard to remark, "I'm sticky."
