A Mark Goodson Bill Todman production

Back when we had 3 TV networks

ToddP said...

The show is Sylvania's "Beat the Clock." Saturday nights on CBS-TV. In black and white. The host (far right with mike in hand) is Bud Collyer. If Bud Collyer's voice sounded familiar and you were old enough to remember -- Bud Collyer was the actor who played Superman on Mutual Radio in the 1940s. If you wanted to see Superman in person, back in the days of "Beat the Clock," all you had to do was go to Sunday School. Bud Collyer taught Sunday School every week in the town where he lived in Connecticut.

Good going, ToddP. Almost no one today remembers Old Time Radio, nor who was who. Thankfully, we have extensive sites to study those days, and there indeed is Bud Collyer credited with creating Superman on radio. For real fans, many of those old shows can be heard when you find where to click.

I have to smile seeing Arky here, looking as happy as he can, on a studio set.
