Storyline

The entire program takes place on a large white stage with nothing more than a pile of lumber and things that are crudely fashioned from it, including a giant rocking horse and a stand-in for the Eiffel Tower. The three main stars sing a multitude of songs, mainly Crosby and Miss Stafford. Dean Martin interrupts a conversation Crosby is having with Garner about his gambling loses, presumably speaking in his "Maverick" persona. Dean does a bad imitation of of Bing's singing style. Bing's sons do very little but move props silently like a NO drama, but they do a trio at the end with their father. Written by WesternOne1
