The Boob

1 
It was the old, old 
     story - -

2
- The slick newcomer 
from the city and the
little country girl - -

Amy
    ... Gertrude Olmsted
Harry
      ... Antonio D'Algy

3
Her childhood sweet-
  heart - just a plain
country boy - -

Peter Good
     ... George K. Arthur

4
Peter's faithful shadow,
   Ham Bunn - -

5
- - And Ham Bunn's
dogged echo, Benzine -

6
The bunkhouse -

7
Cactus Jim said he
could ride anything
from a pole-cat to a
threshing machine -
and the gang believed
him.

    ... Charles Murray

8
"I hope it's blood!"

9
"What's the use 
   of livin'?"

10
"No use a-tall. Life is
jest one durned break
    after another!"

11
"Amy's thrown me down 
for that there city guy -
and she ain't known 
     him a week!"

12
"Women was made from
ribs, son; skin and
bone - - and no brains."

13
"I'm not blamin' Amy,
but there's something
wrong with Benson.
Who is he, anyway?"

14
"Maybe he's a boot-
legger - they're lookin'
for 'em. Maybe he's
a detective - -"

15
"- But I got an inside
     hunch - - !"

16
"What difference does 
it make? I got no
money - no clothes -
not a chance in the 
      world!"

17
"Jumpin' horntoads!
What you need is
backbone! Lemme tell
you what I done - -"

18
"If I could clean out the 
   whole Indian army,
  you oughta be able to
   stampede one fool 
     female girl!"

19
"I'm goin' to stake you,
  son - - put 'em on!"

20
"Tonight, then. Dinner
at 'The Booklovers' -
then we'll motor up to
town and get married."

21
"Wait till Amy sees you!
You sure got that dude
of hers backed up a
       cactus!"

22
"Oh, it's only you!
Where'd you get the
 Tom Mix clothes?"

23
"Amy, I'm crazy about 
you! Let's go walkin'
       tonight."

24
"Huh! Go walking with
you? Not when I can
go to dinner with
Harry Benson at 'The
   Booklovers'!"

25
"All right, laugh! I'm
goin' to show up that
city slicker if it's the
   last thing I do!"

26
"Old Lady Luck is sho'
makin' snake eyes at
    you, Cactus!"

27
"I done cut my teeth
on a rabbit's foot,
Mistuh! You ain't got
     a chancst!"

28
"I'm sick of bein' a
nobody. I'm goin' after
  the bootleggers!"

29
"If Benson's a detective,
I'll be a better one - -
and if he's a bootlegger,
I'll put him in jail!"

30
"Siccum, son! Run that
lop-eared son-of-a-gun
off your range! Take
    my hawss - -"

31
"You wouldn't want any
help huntin' bootleggers,
       would you?"

32
"No, sirree! This is a
man's job! Anyway,
somebody's got to
stay and help Cactus."

33
"Good luck, son! I got
a hunch I'm goin' to
miss you something
     fierce!"

34
"Which way you goin',
ma'am? I'll give you 
      a lift."

35
"My name is Peter Good
and I'm lookin' for
 bootleggers - -"

36
"- - You don't know
   any, do you?"

37
"Well, people are talking 
about that new road-
house they call 'The 
  Booklovers' - -"

38
"- - They say it's in 
  cahoots with the 
  bootleggers - -"

39
"Thank you - - for
bringing me home.
This is the end of my
     journey."

40
"Home! This ain't your 
        home?"

41
"It's the only home 
     I've got."

42
"Flirtin'! Sakes alive,
  sech carryin' on!"

43
"This here's a man's 
 job! Go on home,
     Benzine!"

44
"Us travels, hawss -
to find Pete. You got
a nose like a blood-
hound - - use it!"

45
"The Booklovers Club" -

46
"I've never been to a 
place like this before."

47
"You'll get used to 
them - - with me.
Your education's just 
    beginning!"

48
- - A new generation
   of bookworms.

49
The village soda clerk -
  an imitation of a
tired business man.

        ... Hank Mann

50
Jane, one of Uncle
Sam's crack revenue 
agents, was getting the
low-down on the Fount 
of Knowledge - -

      ... Joan Crawford

51
"I got inside information
before I left the office -
Benson is head of the 
      gang - -"

52
"- - They're going to
make a dash for it
   tonight - -"

53
"- - Benson's going to 
meet them at Judd's 
Mill at eleven o'clock -"

54
"- - You notify Head-
quarters and I'll watch 
       the mill."

55
"I'm lookin' for bootleggers!"

56
"Oh, dearie! So are we!"

57
"I got eats!"

58
"Hoo-hoo! Hoo-hoo!"

59
"I ain't skeered but I
don't jest feel at home.
    Let's us move!"

60
"Not me! I ain't scared
of nothin'. Wish some-
   body'd show me a
         ghost!"

61
"So you're on this 
    job, too!"

62
"What happened at 'The
Booklovers'? We left
 when you began to 
       shoot."

63
"Well - - I left, too. I
  got a hot tip to go
    somewhere else."

64
"That's Judd's Mill -
their meeting place.
I wish you'd watch -"

65
"- They're a desperate 
lot. Don't be reckless!"

66
"Gee! There's a girl
that don't think I'm
      a boob!"

67
"I must keep this
appointment, Amy.
 Trust me - -"

68
"I'll take you to a hotel 
  tonight - - we'll be
married in the morning -"

69
"Gosh! I thought it was 
     a bootlegger!"

70
"I got to investigate -
if they get me, Ham,
don't let 'em escape!"

71
"Boy, I warn you! If
anybody wants to
escape, they don't get
no back-talk from me!"

72
"Use your nose, hawss -
us got to find Cactus!"

73
"You sure buried her 
       deep!"

74
"MURDER!"

75
"Giddap, I tell you!"

76
"Rise up, hawss! You's
a bloodhound - - you
  ain't no setter!"

77
"- - He never could 
leave skirts alone - -
he's bringin' the girl 
      with him."

78
"There's his horn now!"

79
"Follow us!"

80
"Benson was bringin'
a girl with him - -
gosh! It must be
      Amy!"

81
"Where's Amy?"

82
"You're under arrest,
       Benson!"

83
"He can't marry you -
he has a wife already.
   Ask these men!"

84
"Serves him right, the
sneakin' coyote! Oughta
make him drink his 
   own likker!"

85
"Oh, father, can you
forgive me? What a
 fool I've been!"

86
"You've covered yourself 
with glory! You get the 
reward - five thousand 
       dollars!"

87
"- - And a job with
Uncle Sam whenever 
  you want it!"

88
"Zowie! Who's the boob
         now?"

89
"I've been so blind about 
Peter - - he'll never 
     forgive me!"

90
"Peter!"

91
"Peter, please don't go 
         away!"
