Storyline

Host George Murphy introduces the musical number "Czaritza" from the movie, Maytime (1937), sung by one of the most enduring set of screen sweethearts, Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. He then introduces the short film That Inferior Feeling (1940), where everyman Joe Doakes provides examples of how men can feel inferior and thus make themselves look more inferior than they are. Next, George introduces a short movie about a non-inferior man, Matthew Fontaine Maury, who is credited for creating the first maritime wind and currents charts. That movie is Prophet Without Honor (1939). And finally, George presents a few scenes from I'll Cry Tomorrow (1955), where real life singer Lillian Roth, as portrayed by Susan Hayward, admits her alcoholism. Written by Huggo
