Mr. Slade falls in love with dancer Lily Bonnery (Smith), who does not return his affections. As the police search frantically for "Jack the Ripper," Mr. Slade comes under suspicion for the murders.
Money isn't everything and Bill Miller is the guy who keeps proving it. He's carved out a modest niche as a singer in the off-off-vaudeville circuit. But suddenly his act is big news. Well not just his act. He's now teamed with a manic comic. Yet Bill can't admit that the reason for his success is The Stooge. One sings, one clowns...sounds like anyone you know? Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis bring their straightman-funnyman act to this show biz story set in the 1930s. Songs include "Who's Your Little Whozis?" and comedy moments include just about any time Lewis is on screen. Don't miss the fun when he turns Dino's "Just One More Chance" into a zany production number of rising curtains, falling sandbags and a flying comic-on-a-rope. You'll be glad to give it more than one chance!

The Day The Earth Stood Still depicts the arrival of an alien dignitary, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), who has come to earth with his deadly robot, Gort (Lock Martin), to deliver the message that earthlings must stop warring among themselves--or else. After being shot at by military guards, Klaatu is brought to a Washington, D.C. hospital, where he begs a sympathetic but frank Major White (Robert Osterloh) to gather all the world's leaders so he can tell them more specifically what he has come to warn them about. Losing patience, Klaatu slips into the human world, adapting a false identity and living at a boarding house where he meets a smart woman with a conscience and her inquisitive son. Both mother and son soon find themselves embroiled in the complex mystery of Klaatu, his message and the government's witch hunt for the alien. Seen by many as a political, religious and humanitarian effort, the film is based on Harry Bates’ story, "Farewell to the Master."
An envoy from another world warns Earth's people to cease their violent behavior. But panic erupts when a nervous soldier shoots the messenger.
