Storyline

Host George Murphy, who has been told that most Latin dances are flirtation set to music, presents one of the most flirtatious ever put on screen, from The Kissing Bandit (1948), featuring Ricardo Montalban, Cyd Charisse and Ann Miller. He then presents two shorts: The Forgotten Step (1938) in which a man recently hit hard by the stock market crash, tries to regain his fortune through committing what he considers the perfect crime; and A Miniature: The Story of 'The Jonker Diamond' (1936) which tells the story of the the discovery and post-discovery journey of one of the most famous jewels in the world. And finally, he introduces a scene from the new movie Diane (1956), where Marisa Pavan plays Henry VIII's current wife, Catherine de Medici, and Lana Turner plays Diane de Poitiers, the Countess de Breze, the woman that Catherine suspects Henry truly loves.
