Hosted by Bob Hope. Topics in his opening jokes include crowded hotels and elevators, full of soldiers, sailors, and starlets. Introduced as a favorite pin up girl, Judy Garland sings, Dixieland Band.
Judy is looking for a leading man for her new musical, and needs input from Bob as to who she might get. Bing Crosby, or maybe Frank Sinatra? Jokes on being hairless, chubby, thin, or weak are tossed around, as the two are discussed.
Bing arrives to do his own mud slinging, and fend for himself. When Frankie arrives Judy swoon, as the thin crooner holds up his end of the insults that are flung between the three gents. Will it do any good, since Bob seems to have thrown the contest for the audition.
Bing sings, It’s Spring Again. Frankie pokes fun at Bing’s fashion sense, but then does his part in Judy’s audition by singing his hit, You Are.
Joking is layed aside when the two crooners compliment each other, and challenge Bob’s decision. In sticking together, Bing and Frank sing a medley to include: You Are My Sunshine, Sonny Boy, You’re the Tops. Bob can’t stand the attention, and joins the fun at the made up lyrics that poke fun at each other.
Judy and Bing team up to sing, Something to Remember You By.
