Himself - Host


Host George Murphy introduces this week's feature A Guy Named Joe (1943), which tells the story of deceased WWII fighter pilot Pete Sandidge, whose ghost returns to Earth to help an old friend and his old girlfriend live their lives in happiness, at the expense of his own Earthly memories. He then introduces the short You Can't Win (1948), where a man is put in a series of situations where he just can't seem to win as hard as he tries. He then introduces the short film A Door Will Open (1940) which tells another story of help from the afterlife. In the "new in theaters" segment, Murphy introduces scenes from the musical movie Guys and Dolls (1955) which showcases Marlon Brando and Jean Simmons in their first ever singing and dancing roles.
