Host George Murphy introduces one of MGM's most popular movies, The Philadelphia Story (1940), which has just been reissued in theaters. It's the eve of press shy socialite Tracy Lord's second wedding, which is taking place at the Lord family mansion in Philadelphia. Three uninvited guests arrive: Macaulay Connor and Elizabeth Imbrie, an undercover reporter and photographer for Spy Magazine, they whose undercover status to Tracy is not as they believe; and C.K. Dexter Haven, Tracy's first husband. Murphy then introduces the "Pay the $2" sketch from Ziegfeld Follies (1945), where a client wants his lawyer to help pay a $2 fine for a minor offense, but the lawyer who has his own ideas. He then introduces the title tune scene from the new motion picture The Tender Trap (1955). Written by Huggo
