Her Night of Romance

1
The English liner, Gigantic,
 docks at Southampton
 with a summer cargo of
 sight-seeing Yankees.

2
Samuel G. Adams, the 
  scrub-brush-king. He
  hates publicity like a
 bird hates wings.

3
"My daughter, Dorothy, will
 be ready in a moment. Like
 all pretty girls, she's fussy
 about being photographed."

4
"Father, I am ready for 
     the picture."

5
"Will you kindly smile
 and show a bit of your 
        teeth?"

6
Lord Paul Menford, who
  has light-heartedly
  spent his last penny
on flowers for a returning 
        actress.

7
"Daughter! Daughter!"

8
"Daddy! Daddy!"

9
"Why do you look 
    so awful?"

10
"If the newspapers print
 that picture of me, it
 will scare off all fortune
         hunters."

11
"Men don't love me -
 they love my money.
  I hate them all!"

12
"You hate all men?"

13
"Lord Menford is waiting 
    in the anteroom."

14
".....not another shilling
 unless something comes of
 the letter I've written
 Samuel Adams about your
         estate."

15
"Why don't you marry
 a nice, rich girl?"

16
"Why don't you find 
      me one?"

17
"I can fix it - - for ten
  percent of the profits."

18
"Get me that girl and you
 can have one hundred
       percent."

19
"You're as good as 
     married."

20
"Then loan me a thousand 
       on account."

21
"I must toddle along. My
 uncle, Dr. Paul Scott, left
 for Liverpool without his
 traveling bag and wants it
        rushed on."

22
"Get Dr. Paul Scott immediately.
 He's the one specialist to
    examine my daughter."

23
"It's very lucky I caught 
 you, Dr. Scott. Mr. Adams
 wants you to come at 
         once."

24
"Child, you need a rest,
 and I'm going to buy a
 nice quiet country place
 called 'Menford Manor.'"

25
"Dr. Paul Scott, your
   new specialist."

26
"She's very nervous and
 you may need help.
 I'll be close at hand."

27
"All right, doctor, you may
     examine me here."

28
"What do you think 
   of my pulse?"

29
"I like it."

30
"My heart feels bumpy -
  please listen to it."

31
"If you insist, I will -
 but it looks all right 
        to me."

32
"I only want to get 
  my instruments."

33
"On second thought, I'll
      use the ear."

34
"Can you hear it shake?"

35
"Little lady, if I know
 anything at all about
 hearts, yours is perfect."

36
"Daddy, I'm so happy!"

37
"Getting acquainted with
   your bride-to-be?"

38
"Ten percent!"

39
Dr. Scott lives up to his
  uncle's reputation. Six
  calls and the patient
feels like a new woman.

40
"Wine always puts father
       to sleep."

41
"Don't you think it's bad
    for him, doctor?"

42
Wine and music
  are a drowsy
  combination.

43
"Did you like that
 selection, Daddy?"

44
"Fine! Especially the thunder
    effect at the finish."

45
Morning at Menford
      Manor.

46
"Mr. Adams buys your
 house - you get the
 money - then you marry
 his daughter and get
   back your house."

47
"You will have to find
 another home, but for a
 bachelor that's a trifle."

48
"Here's a little paper which
 you can send me with 
    your signature."

49
With the evening, the
  patient prepares for
  another "treatment."

50
"Going to a party with the
     doctor, honey?"

51
"Your heart again?"

52
"I'm going to get 
   Dr. Scott!"

53
"He's the only doctor who
 has ever helped you and
 I am going to bring him 
    here immediately!"

54
Menford Manor.

55
"That's the former owner
     of this manor."

56
In the wee small hours
  at Menford Manor.

57
"Hey! Hey! I don't live
    here any more!"

58
"A thousand pardons. I
 forgot I sold my house
 and I'm not responsible
    for my actions."

59
"Don't try to explain!"

60
"I'm serving breakfast on the
 terrace, Miss, as Mr. Paul
 always prefers to eat here."

61
"I'm awfully sorry about
 being here, but I wasn't
 myself last night and I fell
    asleep in the hall."

62
"You have nothing to fear.
 I'll leave immediately and
 no one will ever know
  I spent the night here."

63
"What must the butler
    think of me!"

64
"He never thinks, and no
 one else will ever know."

65
"Dorothy, this is my friend,
    Sir John Patchwood."

66
"You might as well know
 the truth - - this is
 Lady Menford, my wife."

67
"I'll tell the happy news
  to the whole village!"

68
"She's so happy!"

69
"It's still a secret - not
 even her father knows
    we are married."

70
"Depend on me to handle
      the father."

71
"You must find out how
  to get rid of him."

72
"Hello, Doctor!"

73
"Miss Adams has had a
 slight set-back, but she's
 sleeping peacefully now."

74
"She will sleep for hours.
 There is no need for
      you to wait."

75
"I have nothing to do. 
      I'll wait."

76
"As long as you are going
   to stay, I will go."

77
"DOC-TOR!"

78
"Lord Paul!"

79
"LORD PAUL!"

80
"Someone seems to be
    calling you."

81
"The villagers are here 
     to greet you!"

82
"He certainly is a famous 
         doctor."

83
"The bride! The bride!"

84
"Not the old fellow - -
      the bride!"

85
"Hooray for the bride
     and groom!"

86
"Congratulations, 
  father-in-law!"

87
"Married - - my
    children!"

88
Lunchtime becomes dinner-
 time. Dinner-time becomes
 bed-time, and the newly-weds
slip from the frying pan into
        the fire.

89
"....and, strange as it may
 seem, we are not married."

90
"One more drink and you'll
   deny being a doctor."

91
"Here is your husband.
   Goodnight, kids!"

92
"I did explain. I told him
 everything but he wouldn't
       believe me."

93
"Will it be so bad if we
 really get married in
     the morning?"

94
"Do you remember the first 
   time I ever saw you?"

95
"What a face!"

96
"I liked you then - -"

97
"....now, I love you."

98
"If you mean it, say it
        again."

99
"Paul, if you mean it, 
     say it again."

100
"Dorothy, won't you please
 marry me in the morning?"

101
"But I told you we 
  weren't married."

102
"And if it's agreeable to
 you, we have decided
 to get married in the 
        morning."

103
The much-talked-about
     Morning.

104
"There's a funny man
 inside who insists on 
     seeing you."

105
"Be quick! - The Vicar will
    be here any moment!"

106
"Congratulations, millionaire."

107
"You couldn't have made
 a better business deal
 in your whole life than
     this marriage!"

108
"What's the matter with
 you? You should feel
 very grateful to me!"

109
"And don't forget our
 agreement. I get 10% of
 all the money you get 
    from this girl."

110
"Why don't you throw
 this trickster out of
     the house?"

111
"Tell me it isn't true!"

112
"So, after all, it was
   a business deal!"

113
"Unfortunately for both of
 you we are not married!"

114
"Miss Dorothy said you
   would need these."

115
"I will drive you back in
    my car - - free."

116
Are you the happy bride?

117
The patient has had a 
  relapse and as the days
  drag by, her heart
trouble grows worse and 
         worse.

118
"Why don't you fix yourself
 up a bit? Somebody might
         drop in."

119
"Lord Paul Menford
   is calling."

120
"Do as you like, but as far 
 as I am concerned, I never
 want to see his face again!"

121
"It was very kind of you
 to write this generous 
        letter."

122
"I'm sorry that this mistake
 caused my intrusion, but
 while I'm here, would you
 mind if I take some of
     my belongings?"

123
"I wrote that letter!
 I knew it would
    fetch him!"

124
"It may have fetched him,
 but it won't hold him! He
 is getting ready to leave."

125
"I'm sorry, sir, but your
      car has gone."

126
"Very well - - I'll walk 
    to the station."

127
"Don't let him go, Daddy!
      I love him!"

128
"My things are packed,
 so I'll say good-bye."

129
"It's raining!"

130
"It's pouring!"

131
"Rather a stingy storm -
 only on one side of the
         house."

132
"Do you prefer the 
     wet side?"

133
"Yes, if it keeps 
    you here."

134
"I thank heaven that I have
     only one daughter!"

135
"I never thought it was
 so hard to get a girl 
        married."

136
"The storm is over, Daddy.
   It's all cleared up."

The End
