Storyline

Host George Murphy introduces segments from two MGM productions, the feature length movie Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) and the short film The Greatest Gift (1942). He then presents a few common pet peeves, dramatized by an unfortunate man, who must wait to use the only pay telephone booth around which is occupied by a very talkative woman; as a shopkeeper, who is waiting on a customer who doesn't seem to want to spend any money but causes calamity in the store; who slips on a loose rug at the top of a flight of stairs; who battles a stuck ice cube tray in a freezer; and who needs to find the burnt out bulb on a string of Christmas tree lights. Murphy then meets with actor/singer Howard Keel, who is to appear in the upcoming MGM musical Kismet (1955). Written by Huggo
