This short starts out as a visit to a sound stage to see Pete Smith make one of his short films. When production delays occur, Smith visits other sound stages on the lot to see what else is being filmed. The audience gets to see a sleight-of-hand artist practicing his craft, a 3-year-old girl with a perfect sense of balance, and Lena Horne singing in a bathtub. Written by

Another delightful one-reeler from Pete Smith. We get to watch Lena Horne sing "Ain't It The Truth?" in a bubble bath, watch some close-up sleight of hand exposed and see a three-year-old balance on knives while eating an apple, while Smith makes bemused comments. A lot of fun.
