Host George Murphy introduces the title number from For Me and My Gal (1942), which was Gene Kelly's first ever starring role in a motion picture. He then introduces the short film Strange Testament (1941) which tells the story of why $1,100 is bequeathed to every young bride in West Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Next, he introduces Let's Talk Turkey (1939), which demonstrates the right and wrong ways to carve a Thanksgiving turkey at the dinner table. And he receives a visit from Susan Hayward, who talks about her new motion picture I'll Cry Tomorrow (1955), which tells the story of singer Lillian Roth whose career was threatened by her alcoholism.
