Storyline

Host George Murphy, in the MGM family album segment, introduces a number from Anchors Aweigh (1945) featuring Gene Kelly performing with Jerry the Mouse as the King of Cartoonland, this the first number on the big screen where a live human and an animated character sang and danced together. Another King, or more precisely one that never was, is presented in The King Without a Crown (1937), which provides an account of a Christian missionary name Eleazar Williams living in Green Bay, Wisconsin, who could actually have been King Louis XVII of France. George then introduces producer Dore Schary and writer/director Richard Brooks, who, on collaborating on De laatste jacht (1956), documented the filming of the final buffalo stampede scene. They wanted the scene to be as realistic as possible, and as such shot on location in the Badlands of South Dakota, where they used an existing herd of two thousand wild buffalo in their natural environs, but which needed to be controlled for the shoot ...
