| Chopin To Iturbi And Elsewhere
This short subject begins with Frédéric Chopin, continues with José Iturbi playing Chopin-inspired piano playing, and then some other songs and music from the silver screen. It's a promotional video showing a goodly selection of musical talent, classical, operatic, orchestral and popular songs by talents such as Yehudi Menuhin, Bing Crosby, Harry James.... well, the list goes on and on, with a good third of the named talent requiring accents and diacritical marks.

And Danny Kaye singing one of his tongue-twister songs. This was 1950, after all, and the movies had been in a downtown caused by the rise of television. That's why it ends with the offer that "All this music is yours at your neighborhood theater when you go to the movies."
