It’s a good day for a meeting of the minds, but in this case George is about to have his day disrupted by a meeting of the Beverly Hills Uplifters Society. Despite the important day to elect new club officers, George wants those old buzzards tossed out. To sway her popularity Gracie has a celebrity visit arranged. Part of Gracie’s speech is a plug to encourage women to join the armed forces, and free up a man for a combat role. Bill Goodwin gets giggly responses as he delivers a sponsor message.
The Happy Postman delivers a message for Gracie. Her guest has backed out on her, so she sets out to recruit Charles Laughton instead. Meanwhile Paul Whiteman introduces the Six Hits and a Miss to sing, Rosie the Riveter.
Finding Charles at home, and doing the household chores, Gracie learns that he also resents women’s clubs, maybe as much as George. Will there be any hope for him in a defense against a determined Gracie? Charles is lured into a battle of acting talent with good old Sugar Throat Burns. Jimmy Cash sings, There Are Such Things.
As Charles and George come to terms, Bill Goodwin pops in again with his second dose of commercial sponsorship. How does Bill’s acting ability hold up to Charles Laughton’s standards? The gents figure out they were tricked by Gracie, and for the purposes of her dreaded women’s club. The Uplifters are ready to watch an acting treat… but will they get something else? Is it even possible for Charles to act badly?
