Bill Walker and Paul Soles were smooth performers and made such eminent hosts. Both men were dramatic actors as well! Soles was the voice of the "Amazing Spiderman." I recently saw Bill Walker in an old episode of "Last Of The Mohicans" under the moniker "William Walker." He was much better as host of Flashback! I remember thinking Elwy Yost was just about the wildest name I had ever heard and I never forgot it! Of course, he went on to a long and storied career at TV Ontario.
I have few memories of Maggie Morris and Allan Mannings, but always remembered the balding, bespectacled Yost, who seemed to have some of the most interesting questions for the guests.
The episode I remembered best was one where the panel interviewed George "Spanky" MacFarland (of Spanky and Our Gang fame), who recounted the horrible collapse and tragic end of my favorite "Little Rascal", Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer.
