Announcer: Ken Niles. Music: Freddie Rich Orchestra,
Lou gets confused over Rudy Valle and singing through his nose. Does he have other unusual problems with his nose as well? Professor Mellonhead tries to coach Lou on how to properly entertain Rudy Valle. The rapid fire instructions on grammar, and eloquence would confuse any one, but even more so for Lou.
Freddie Rich plays, The Very Thought of You. In going to meet the famous singer, might Lou be jealous of Rudy as being a lady’s man? What eccentric behaviors does the entertainer have and expect of Bud and Lou? Kitzel is on hand to add to the eccentricities, but is it all a joke? Rudy enters with all the fanfare of royalty. Egos clash when Lou meets the famous guest..
A musical transition, and Public Service Announcement for the troops on saving plans fills time for the skipped commercial for AFRS.
Rudy builds Lou’s confidence by featuring him in a play he brought, which will begin right after a musical break. Connie Haines sings, Accentuate the Positive.
Presenting the stirring drama of Jack and the Beanstalk, Rudy narrates, and coaches Lou. In practice, Rudy reads the story, providing other voices and sound affect. Lou spends more time arguing over the lack of his lines, than having an actual part to read. You know the story, just enjoy it as Lou deals with his minimal contribution to it.
To fill more time for AFRS, music is added. Connie Haines sings, Making Believe.
Note: the movie, Jack in the Beanstalk, featuring Abbott and Costello, was released in 1952. Lou had a lot more parts to read, and act in that one. Find it on Youtube.
