The Cameraman

1  
When acclaiming our modern 
heroes, let's not forget The 
News Reel Cameraman .... the
daredevil who defies death
to give us pictures of the
    world's happenings.

2
And there are other types 
   of photographers.

3
"Take your tintype, Mister?
They make fine ash-trays!"

4
"I make them look just 
   like you, Miss."

5
"Do you know who 
    that is?"

6
"Maybe it's Lydia 
    Pinkham."

7
"Do you know her?"

8
"What are you doin' ....
givin' me a sleigh-ride?"

9
"No charge. It's a
     present."

10
"I'd like to have you sit 
for another portrait ....
   when you get off."

11
"I won't be through
 for three hours."

12
"I'll wait."

13
"I'm a photographer.
Could I get a job 
      here?"

14
"Get a job here .... with
  that cocktail shaker?"

15
"You'll have to buy your 
   own camera before
they'll give you a trial 
         here."

16
"Don't close up! I'll be
       right back!"

17
"What are you doing 
       here?"

18
"None of your business!
I'm waiting to see the 
        boss!"

19
"Well .... I'm the boss!"

20
"Well .... make me an 
        offer."

21
"The Grand Central
 Warehouse is on
      fire!"

22
"You ought to go
photograph the fire, 
       too!"

23
"They'll buy any good film
... so photograph anything
   that's interesting."

24
"It's your chance to 
      break in!"

25
"I'll bust in all right!
       Watch me!"

26
"Where's the fire?"

27
"Up there there's a fire 
 down here, they said."

28
"In which house?"

29
"No! It's not in a 
which house .... it's in 
   a warehouse!"

30
"Now .... where is it?"

31
"Where's what?"

32
Where's the which house?
I mean .... which's the
      warehouse?"

33
"Which warehouse ....
      where?"

34
Within an hour he was 
photographing everything 
from soup to nuts ....
   mostly the nuts.

35
"Aren't the Yankees
  playing today?"

36
"Sure... in St. Louis!"

37
"Don't be discouraged.
No one would ever 
amount to anything
if he didn't try."

38
"You must always 
grind forward ....
 never backward."

39
"I'll make good next 
        time!"

40
"Tomorrow's Sunday.
Maybe you'll let me
take you for a nice 
    long walk."

41
"I'm sorry .... I have a
sort of date. But give
me your phone number ...
   I may call you."

42
"I'll be waiting."

43
From the peep of 
dawn on Sunday 
   morning -

44
"My date's off, and -"

45
"I'm sorry if I'm a
    little late."

46
"This is the young man 
who is to take Sally 
      walking."

47
"This is my dressing 
       room!"

48
"Shut up .... or it'll be
      your coffin!"

49
"Will you keep out of 
   my undershirt?"

50
"Hey! What is this, a
 suit .... or a bib?"

51
"The Big Sea Lion!"

52
"I'll show you some 
real fancy diving!"

53
"Let's get out of here 
  and go walking on 
     the beach."

54
"Help! I've been 
     robbed!"

55
"Hello, Sally! Come
on .... I'll drive you
       home."

56
"But we couldn't have him 
in here with us! There's
 never room for three."

57
"I'm a little damp....
  so I'll go home."

58
"I'm sorry you got
      so wet."

59
"It was worth it .... to 
      be near you."

60
"Where do you live and
  where do you work?"

61
"Did you ever find that 
flame you were looking 
          for?"

62
"Oh .... she's so beautiful!"

63
"I'll try your reflexes to 
   see if you're goofy."

64
Monday morning.

65
"There'll be nothin' for
      you! Beat it!"

66
"Randall talking. This
Chinese celebration
may be interesting.
 Send a man down."

67
"Chinatown is celebrating
a holiday. It may be
worth taking. Go on
        down."

68
"I'll make good this 
    time, Sally."

69
"Now, see! You kill-a
       de monk!"

70
"Pay him for that 
baboon .... or I'll run 
      you in!"

71
"It's yours ... you bought 
it! Get it out of the 
          way!"

72
"If the Wung Fa Tong
starts anything .... you
  know what to do!"

73
"I took the whole 
   blamed war!"

74
"I got some great 
pictures of that Tong 
  War all right!"

75
"Pretty short war!"

76
"I guess I forgot to put 
  film in the camera."

77
"Say .... how did you 
  get wise to that 
     Tong War?"

78
"Miss Sally told me."

79
"Did you give him the 
  tip, young lady?"

80
"It's all your fault that
   this fool has been
  hanging around here!"

81
"Don't leave because of 
me. I'll never bother 
 any of you again."

82
Tuesday morning -
   The Westport Yacht
   Club Regatta.

83
"Did you change this film 
   box in Chinatown?"

84
"Look out you don't 
get thrown out when 
I make this turn."

85
"You're awfully brave 
 to have saved me."

86
"What else could a 
    fellow do?"

87
Wednesday morning.

88
"That little cameraman
left this film here. He
said you can have it 
    for nothing."

89
"It's the Tong War!"

90
"That's the best camera
work I've seen in years!"

91
"Get that man here 
      quick!"

92
"I'll never be able to
  thank you enough."

93
"Everybody's talking 
about you! They're all 
waiting to give you a 
  great reception!"
