Plot Summary
To boost ratings of his television show, Steve Allen (himself) changes the format, replacing music with short films. When his producer, Jeffers (Frank Nelson), demands that he show the new format -- which he hasn't prepared yet -- to a potential sponsor, Steve accidentally runs a silent Mack Sennett film, then hastily attempts to cover the silence with impromptu music and effects. A flurry of short films featuring the Keystone Kops, Franklin Pangborn and others follow as Steve tries to keep up.
