This 30-minute live segment of the Armstrong Circle Theatre series is hosted by Fred Allen, who introduces three skits based on stories by star writers Nunnally Johnson, E.B. White, and James Thurber.
Skit 1 is about a riddle told by a secretary (Nita Talbot) in an office. She's fired for wasting time, but then the boss (Allen) obsesses about the answer to the riddle to the point that he re-hires her just to get the answer.
Skit 2 has Allen as a bartender who meets technology in the guise of a robot that accompanies a man (Ernest Truex) into the bar for a drink.
Skit 3 has Allen annoying his wife (Cavada Humphrey) at a cocktail party until she leaves with another man.
Cast includes Barbara Nichols, Charlotte Rae, William Redfield, and Kenny Delmar.
Mild but amusing look at live TV from 1954 with ads for Armstrong flooring. Allen seems to have a lot of trouble reading the cue cards.
