Does your husband

know anything about this?

- Hm? What did you say?

Your husband.

Did he have any idea

you were coming here today?

No, I don't think so.

Now, this is calcium

and a few other things.

You'll find the directions

on the label.

Now, just go on leading

a perfectly normal life.

Eat whatever you like, take plenty

of exercise and get lots of sleep.

- When do you think it'll be, doctor?

- Oh, about Christmas, I'd say.

- Christmas.

- Unless you're from the South...

...where women take their time.

Hadn't you better hurry?

It's almost time for your broadcast.

You mean exactly Christmas?

Well, not necessarily Christmas day.

Say a week or 1 O days either way.

- A first baby is...

- Broadcast!

- My goodness, what time is it?

- It's 28 after 4.

- It can't be.

- Oh, let me help you.

We're on the air in 30 minutes.

Jack will kill me.

Well, in that case, just don't bother

to have that prescription filled.

I'll see if I can get a cab for you.


Operator? Operator?

Are you ringing that number?

- Did you find her?

- There's no answer in her apartment.

Maybe she went to the Ritz.

I'll get the number.

Why get so excited?

Suppose she does miss a broadcast.

Is Russia marching?

Will Soth Pacfc play?

Stop being profound

and get Jack aspirin.

He's going crazy.

Oh, never mind, here she is now.

Kitty, where have you been?

- Jack's going crazy in there.

- Hi, Walter.


For heaven's sakes, Kitty.

Do you realize what time it is?

- I'm sorry.

- The next time I marry...

...a knuckle-headed dame.

I'm gonna get a divorce.

- Get my lawyer.

- I'm all out of breath.

- What kept you?

- I had to go up on Fifth Avenue.


Shh! We're on the air.

From coast to coast,

the Cosmo Cosmetcs Program...

...starring Kitty and Jack Moran.



- What'd you do that for?

- I'm sorry, I just couldn't help it.

Ladies and gentlemen,

last week Kitty and Jack promised...

...never to be argumentative

or jealous again.

For a week

they've lived up to their agreement.

We now take you to

the Starlight Roof at the Waldorf...

...where we find them dancing

cheek to cheek.

Do you know why

I wanted to come here tonight?

No, sweetheart, why?

Because this is where

we first fell in love.

But we didn't fall in love

here on the Starlight Roof.

- You have your roofs mixed.

- Now, don't try to tell me...

...where we fell in love.

I had to pay the check.

But you told me you couldn't

afford the Starlight Roof in those days.

You sure you haven't got me mixed up

with Bessy Whatever-Her-Name-Is?

Now, for heaven's sakes,

don't start that again.

Then don't tell me

where we fell in love.

Okay, okay.

Then you tell me.

- In a doctor's office.

- In a doc...

I... When were we ever

at a doctor's office?

Oh, about Christmastime.

That champagne I bought you

must have gone to your head.

- What will we be doing at the doctor's?

- Getting some calcium.

Would you change scripts,

because there's nothing about calcium.

We should be in the Starlight Roof

dancing. Cheek to cheek.

Nothing about calcium,

doctor's office or Christma...

Kitty. No.

That's what I've been trying

to tell you.

Oh, baby.

I don't remember writing

anything like that.

- You didn't.

- I didn't?

Somebody's gone nuts.

She's just told him

and 23 million bug-eyed listeners...

- ... she's gonna have a baby, that's all.

- A baby?

Mm-hm. What else would the idiot

be carrying on like an idiot about?

Well, if you ask me,

it's a nice day for it.

Begin the song.

Claude Binyon

Claude Binyon (October 17, 1905 Chicago, Illinois – February 14, 1978 Glendale, California) was a screenwriter and director. His genres were comedy, musicals, and romances. As a Chicago-based journalist for the Examiner newspaper, he became city editor of the show business trade magazine Variety in the late 1920s. According to Robert Landry, who worked at Variety for 50 years including as managing editor, Binyon came up with the famous 1929 stock market crash headline, "Wall Street Lays An Egg." (However, writer Ken Bloom ascribes the headline to Variety publisher Sime Silverman.)He switched from writing about movies for Variety to screenwriting for the Paramount Studio with 1932's If I Had A Million; his later screenwriting credits included The Gilded Lily (1935), Sing You Sinners (1938), and Arizona (1940). Throughout the 1930s, Binyon's screenplays were often directed by Wesley Ruggles, including the "classic" True Confession (1938). Fourteen feature films by Ruggles had screenplays by Binyon. Claude Binyon was also the scriptwriter for the second series of the Bing Crosby Entertains radio show (1934-1935). In 1948, Binyon made his directorial bow with The Saxon Charm (1948), for which he also wrote the screenplay. He went on to write and direct the low-key comedy noir Stella (1950), Mother Didn't Tell Me (1950), Aaron Slick of Pun'kin Crick (1952), and the Clifton Webb farce Dreamboat (1952). He directed, but didn't write, Family Honeymoon (1949) as well as Bob Hope's sole venture into 3-D, Here Come the Girls (1953). After his death on February 14, 1978, he was buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. more…
