A tour of the MGM lab shows how technicians process movie film and behind-the-scenes glimpses of currently shooting MGM productions: "Marie Antoinette," "Judge Hardy's Children," "Test Pilot," and "Toy Wife" are shown. Film from the Oscar ceremony showing MGM contractees Luise Ranier and Spencer Tracy receiving Oscars is also featured. Of great interest to film buffs are references to films that would not be made for over a decade, albeit with a different cast, including Freddy Bartholomew in "Kim" and Fernand Gravey in "Scaramouche."

Although Freddie Bartholomew is shown training with elephants in preparation for "Kim," the Rudyard Kipling novel would not reach the screen until 1950 with Dean Stockwell starring. Fernand Gravey is announced for "Scaramouche", but the Rafael Sabatini swashbuckler would not be made until 1952 with Stewart Granger. While Robert Taylor is announced as Spencer Tracy's co-star in "Northwest Passage," it would be Robert Young who appeared in the 1940 release. See more
