While leafing through the MGM family photo album, host George Murphy reminisces about the film career of the incomparable Greta Garbo, and introduces the movie in which her voice was first heard, Anna Christie (1930). The next book he leafs through is an autograph book, which introduces the next movie The Amazing Mr. Nordill (1947), who was a special kind of autograph seeker, namely a counterfeiter. Murphy then introduces producer Pete Smith, who takes the viewer on a comical guided tour of the studio. Murphy then introduces actor Robert Taylor, who talks about his soon to be released movie, Quentin Durward (1955). Written by Huggo
