Storyline

Milton Berle's guests include Ethel Merman, Teddy Hale, Keye Luke, acrobatic act Los Gattos, Teddy Hale, and composers Joan Whitney and Alex Kramer, Charles Tobias, Maud Nugent and Lou Brown. Berle opens dressed as a Roman riding in a chariot. He joins Merman for "The Varsity Drag" and "Friendship," and the two go for a drive. She solos on "I Get a Kick Out of You" and "I Got Rhythm." The finale is a salute to songwriters. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>

Trivia

Ethel Merman told Time magazine in 1949 she wasn't convinced about TV: "I did two shows with Milton Berle. On both of them he had horses in the act - and everything that goes with horses. We were so cramped backstage that I had only a screen for costume changes and an electrician practically held a light over me while I changed... There must be an easier way to make a living."
