Donald O'Connor hosts this first show of the new year with headliner guests that include singer Gale Robbins ("Will You Still Be Mine?" and "I'm in a Jam with My Baby"), and Sid Miller (opening song-and-dance skit with O'Connor centered on the theme "This we won't do in 1952", plus second skit with O'Connor lampooning songwriters and radio newscasters). Highlight is the appearance of Harpo Marx who plays a harp solo ("Old Folks at Home") and appears in a pantomime skit set in a retirement home, and another with O'Connor in which he whistles answers to questions O'Connor asks him. And Harpo chases beautiful girls across the stage. O'Connor appears in another skit with Gale Robbins, and in tap-dance skit, and in a fuller production number set in an industrial plant. Cameo appearances from Joe E. Ross and Jack Pearl.
