A 1951 promotional film in which Mel Blanc takes Billy May on a tour of the Capitol Records studio on Melrose (followed by the somewhat less glamorous Scranton pressing plant) in an attempt to convince him that 85 cents is not too much to charge for a record. [SLYT]
Features appearances from Yogi Yorgeson, Les Paul & Mary Ford, Dean Martin and Dave Dexter, who would famously go on to alter the Beatles’ US releases for Capitol Records.
Last couple of minutes are missing. Contains some cheesy '50s leering.
