The short film consists of the following components:
- Herbert Marshall takes us through an "imaginative glimpse" into the future world of 1960, and into the living room the Ames family, who watch an archive film hosted by Jack Carson
- Frank Sinatra sings "There'll Be a Hot Time in the Town of Berlin"
- Dennis Morgan & Irene Manning sing "One Alone" as a duet
- Cary Grant reads a letter written by a Canadian soldier who was killed in action
- Deanna Durbin sings "Begin the Beguine"
- Benny Goodman and his Orchestra play "Sing, Sing, Sing" - featuring Harry James on trumpet and Gene Krupa on drums
- Bing Crosby sings "Get on the Road to Victory"
- The short closes with footage of the frontline at war
Overall, good entertainment with a handful of memorable stars. The imaginative look into the future is amusing, although I think they were a little optimistic at how advanced the world would be. In today's world, (over 50 years later) we are still not as advanced as the world the Ames lives in - we are yet to innovate flying cars or have our own personal rocket ships.
