Summary
  • Beat the devil: Four international crooks are stranded in Italy while their steamer is being repaired. With them are the Dunnreuthers. The six are headed for Africa, presumably to sell vacuum cleaners but actually to buy land supposedly loaded with uranium. They are joined by others who apparently have similar designs
  • The big lift: In 1948, the Soviet Union brings the entire city of Berlin under their control. A semi-documentary about the resulting Berlin Airlift highlights the stories of two fictitious US Air Force participants: Sgt. Hank Kowalski, whose hatred of Germans proves resistant to change, and Sgt. Danny McCullough, whose pursuit of an attractive German war widow exposes him to the seamy side of occupied Berlin
  • My man Godfrey: During the great depression, a party game brings a socialite to the city dump where she hires a derelict as her family butler
