In "The Swift Rise of Eddie Albright," Phil Silvers stars as an elevator operator who gets to the top in an unusual way.
Why is that? Well, it all started when he went down to the Elite Barber Shop to get a manicure from Milly. Normally, he went in for three or four manicures a week in an attempt to impress her, but this time was different. This time, he went too far and made the mistake of telling her that he held a higher position that he actually did. Later, when Milly found out that he was a phony, she gave him the brush-off.
When Eddie went back to work, he soon found himself embroiled in another drama. Two men brought a rolled-up carpet onto his elevator...a carpet that had feet sticking out at the bottom...
So, how does it all work out for Eddie?
