Stating that almost anything can be accomplished at a movie studio, host George Murphy takes the viewer on a tour of MGM Studios, most specifically the area known as Lake Metro, where a man made lake is created for outdoor water scenes and where many vessels used for movies such as Show Boat (1951), Tugboat Annie (1933) and Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) are housed. This nautical setting segues into a presentation of The Ship That Died (1938), a short film on the mystery of the Mary Celeste, a merchant ship found abandoned - the crew and passengers' whereabouts never discovered - but whose cargo was virtually untouched. He then presents the animated short Batty Baseball (1944), and "The French Lesson" musical number from Good News (1947). The coming attraction is the movie Trial (1955). Written by
