Host George Murphy, in the musical section, introduces "The Donkey Serenade" number from The Firefly (1937), the number which takes an unusual approach in a love song: by having the protagonist (portrayed by Allan Jones) use a third party to profess his love, namely though his donkey. In the "Hall of Fame" segment, Murph shows a scene from Dinner at Eight (1933) featuring Wallace Beery and Jean Harlow, both who carved out a unique niche in Hollywood. Murph then shows the short film Inca Gold (1943), which tells the story of the lost Inca gold of El Dorado. In the Upcoming Feature segment, Murph then introduces actor Dan Dailey, who in turn introduces his young Japanese co-star Mitsuko Sawamura. They talk about their new movie Meet Me in Las Vegas (1956) and how non-English speaking Mitsuko learned the English lyrics for their song from the movie, "My Lucky Charm". Written by Huggo
