Stars and Stripes Forever

Eager to impress his boss, musician Private Willie Little (Robert Wagner) presents Marine Corps Band composer John Philip Sousa (Clifton Webb) with a rejiggered instrument he's dubbed the "sousaphone." When the composer exits the Corps, Little joins Sousa's new band. Sousa wants to play more than just his famed marches, and Little is preoccupied by his performer girlfriend, but when the Spanish-American War starts, both men concentrate on giving all they can to the war effort.

Sitting Pretty

Overworked parents Tacey (Maureen O'Hara) and Harry King (Robert Young) have three rambunctious sons and no time for themselves. So they place an ad for a live-in nanny, which is answered by one Lynn Belvedere, who they assume is a woman. The Kings are soon shocked when they discover that Lynn is actually a man (Clifton Webb). Reluctantly, they hire him anyway and are pleased when he proves a success. Unfortunately, the addition of another adult man to the house troubles the neighbors.
