238-141208 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - Quick as a Flash

Quick as a Flash was a quiz show with just five questions - four fast ones, then a fifth one that took up over half the show.  It ran for six years, first as a prime time show, then as a daytime show.

Six audience members were selected as contestants, and after they answered the first four questions, the program shifted to a mystery show!  A short mystery play was performed, with a different guest star each week.  The contestants then had to solve the mystery.

The show had three hosts over the years:  Ken Roberts for 2 years, Win Elliot for 2 years, and Bill Cullen for 2 years.

In this episode, the guest star is the Shadow, as played by Bret Morrison.  It first aired on March 23, 1947.
