Comedian Jan Murray fills in for Berle, who fell ill during rehearsals. Guests include Gale Storm, accordionist Dick Contino, Vic Damone, and Ben Blue. Jan's monologues include jokes about his move to the suburbs. Gale sings "I Hear You Knockin'" and Vic does "Autumn Leaves." Blue does a pantomime as a man in a park making friends with a young woman. Shown is a black-and-white dramatic sketch from the 9/29/1953 episode of "The Buick-Berle Show" featuring Frank Sinatra and Tallulah Bankhead.
