You Know the Voice: Bud Collyer (1953)

In addition to hosting To Tell The Truth, Bud Collyer also served as MC for another classic game show, Beat the Clock, which premiered in 1950. By then, Collyer had ended his run doing Superman radio dramas, and would not be, ah, reunited with the Man of Steel for another 16 years.

To give you some idea of Beat the Clock, we present this episode from 1953.

Today's audience is familiar with a spiritual descendant to Clock, that being Minute to Win It. It just ain't the same.
