Think Fast (ABC game show)
Gypsy Rose Lee
|Country of origin||United States|
|Running time||30 minutes|
|Original release||March 26, 1949 – October 8, 1950|
The program revolved around a group of five panelists (three regulars and two weekly guest panelists) who would compete to see who had the most to say about a particular subject. They sat at a large table, each getting a chance to sit at the "King's" throne by out talking the others on subjects decided by the host.
The regular panelists were Leon Janney, David Broekman, who was also the show's musical director, and Eloise McElhone. The moderator was Mason Gross for the first episodes, then Gypsy Rose Lee afterward. McElhone was also host of the DuMont series Quick on the Draw, host of Eloise Salutes the Stars on DuMont, and a panelist on the series Leave It to the Girls on NBC and ABC.
The series originally aired on Saturdays until April, followed by Fridays until September, then Sundays for the rest of its run.
