Lyles (1918-2013) talks about his 77-year-long association with Paramount, for which he holds the record for the longest continuously-employed person at a motion picture studio. He details his early years, and at the age of ten working at the Florida Theater in Jacksonville, part of the Paramount-Publix theater chain.

He describes his ascent in the ranks at the studio, from working in the publicity department to producing feature films. He discusses the layout of personnel in the publicity department and talks about his work in promoting movies and establishing the "golden circle" of talented young performers. He talks about many of Paramount Pictures' notables, including Cecil B. DeMille, John Barrymore and William Holden. He speaks about Paramount's interest in television, and describes the line-up of early shows on Paramount-owned KTLA. He describes the televising and impact of the "Kathy Fiscus tragedy," which aired on KTLA in 1949.
