Indiana Jones is late for a Broadway show and begins to recount his own experiences working backstage at George White's Scandals in 1920 to his disgruntled female cabdriver. Indy managed to woo no less than three girls in as many days: singer Peggy, poet Kate and socialite Gloria. Arriving at the theater, Old Indy has no time to finish his account to the cabbie and instead picks up the story in the course of lecturing a theatre critic about the hardships of the little people struggling to put on their show.

I haven't enjoyed an episode of this series as much as this one. This was fun from start to finish and I didn't want it to end. This chapter was better than much of what is being shown on the big screen today! Casting was flawless and the depiction of the eras famous people flowed as if Indiana was too a real icon of the time. If Mr. Lucas could've made more episodes like this one this show would still be running on cable today! I can't say enough nice things about this showing and as my rating is the max you get my point!! Now its on to volume 3 disc 9--- Hollywood Follies and I hope it is 1/2 as good as the Scandal of 1920! A must see!!
