The character Grace Kelly plays is called Connie Lane - that is the leading lady of "Good News". If I remember correctly, the leads are a football player and a student librarian. So it makes sense. The number in the original show is called "The French Lesson". Odd that they chose to put these two actors in this selection - usually Ed Sullivan showed excerpts of current Broadway hits.

Observation: Ralph Meeker speaking or singing has a very distinctive voice. He also has a natural masculinity, unselfconscious sexiness and macho charm that has nothing to do with muscles or looks. Grace is very charming and much more unaffected than she was as Tracy Lord in "High Society".
