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
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.
