Host George Murphy introduces the theme for this episode, which is love in all its forms. Romantic love is displayed between the characters portrayed by Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald in a scene of them singing "Sweetheart" from Maytime (1937). Patriotic love for Abraham Lincoln is displayed in Charles 'Chic' Sale's portrayal of the president in excerpts from The Perfect Tribute (1935) which deals with a more private incident between the president and a wounded soldier, who doesn't know to who he is speaking, following the delivery of the Gettysburg address. A more literal use of the word love is presented as Lena Horne sings the song "Love" in a scene from Ziegfeld Follies (1945), the song which describes love in its many facets. And love in wedded bliss is displayed in real life and on the silver screen as husband and wife guests Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball present a scene from their upcoming feature, Forever, Darling (1956).- Written by Huggo
