Quick As A Flash

Sunday, May 18, 1947

Broadcast 5:30pm-6pm

Each episode of the popular quiz show featured the Helbros Derby, a mystery sketch featuring a guest detective. The show’s contestants could win a cash prize by solving the mystery. Bela played Dr. Heggi, a Hungarian detective, opposite host Ken Roberts in “a tabloid mystery play” entitled “A severe Case of Murder.” Although no recording of the program is known to exist, the script has survived. It can be viewed as part of a fascinating article on the history of the show at:
