Selected members of the studio audience competed in this show. A six-minute mystery vignette was performed and stopped prior to its conclusion where the culprit was revealed. Three musical clues were provided to help the contestants solve the mystery. The first player to correctly uncover the culprit received a $25 war bond. If a player gave an incorrect answer, a gun shot was heard and that player was disqualified.
