Storyline

Host George Murphy introduces the musical number "Tales from the Vienna Woods" from The Great Waltz (1938). Next, he introduces the short film The Historical Mystery: Miracle of Salt Lake (1938), which describes the struggles of Brigham Young and his Mormon followers during the mid-nineteenth century to establish a settlement free from persecution, and why there is today a monument in Salt Lake City dedicated to the seagull. He then introduces The Cristiani Family, the title stars of the short film Equestrian Acrobats (1937). The final selection for the week is Susan Hayward's first movie singing role as Lillian Roth, singing the song "Happiness Is Just a Thing Called Joe" in I'll Cry Tomorrow (1955). Written by Huggo
