Her Sister from Paris

1
Let us leave Paris to the
 Parisians - Cairo to the
Chiropractors - and enter
Vienna, where laughter 
       is lord.

[dissolve to:]

2
Typical of the gay, easy-
 going Viennese are the
Weyringers, a novelist and 
his wife - with their air of 
peace and old world courtesy.

3
"I know - I know -
 you don't love me
    any more."

4
Robert Well - an important
 fellow at the British
Embassy. Looks after the
monocles - - and the
      marmalade.

5
"Another little tiff?"

6
"Certainly not - -
  we never fight!"

7
"Open that d--- door,
 Helen - or I'll rip it
  out by the roots!"

8
"My doughnuts - and
 I cooked them especially
       for you."

9
"You beast - I hate
 you. I'm going back
    to mother."

10
"Don't fool, Bob -
 this time it's serious."

11
"He doesn't love me 
     any more."

12
"I'm going home to 
      mother."

13
"And now she's 
  leaving me."

14
"What a lucky husband
 you are! Anyway, a
 little separation will do
    you both good."

15
"Joseph, you've been
 working too hard.
 What you need is a
  little night air."

16
"My wife! She's
  leaving me!"

17
"Why! What more can 
     you ask?"

18
"Yes, I'm really going.
 You don't love me 
     any more."

19
"You've laughed at me
 for the last time. Now
 you can write your
 old stories. I'll never
  bother you again."

20
"The West Station."

21
"It's my wife - and
  she's beautiful."

22
"Bob, I think you're
 right. I do need a
  little night air!"

23
"How sweet of you to
   meet me, dear."

24
In La Perry's dressingroom,
 after a light supper of
oysters and aspirin - -
 Helen told her story.
 
25
"My dear, it's always
 the wife's fault when
 the husband gets
   indifferent."

26
"Look at that face!
 No wonder he lost 
    interest!"

27
"You're hopelessly old-
 fashioned. What you
 need is a little renovating!"

28
No sooner said 
  than done.

29
"If your husband could
 see you know, it would
  be a different story."

30
"If it wasn't for this
 mole, we'd look exactly
         alike."

31
"Now even mother
 couldn't tell us
      apart."

32
"Mademoiselle La Perry."

33
"I do not know who 
      is who."

34
"I am La Perry - and
  this is my sister."

35
"Quick, quick - -
 Mademoiselle goes
 on in five minutes."

36
In the meantime, the
 shades of night were
falling fast. Joseph and
Bob prepared to do 
     likewise.

37
"The first dance will be
   'The Blue Danube'."

38
"She's the exact image
 of Helen - - only
     beautiful."

39
La Perry danced - and
 Vienna tossed its heart
beneath her twinkling heels.
Every number was a triumph.

40
"I leave him - and he
 dares to go out for a
      good time."

41
"Tell each gentleman
 that La Perry accepts
   his invitation."

42
"I hate him! I never
 want to see him again!"

43
After the show.

44
"Mademoiselle La Perry
 accepts your invitation."

45
"Mademoiselle La Perry
 accepts your invitation."

46
"I'm awfully tired, 
        Bob."

47
"Me too."

48
"I think I'll go
      home."

49
"Me too."

50
"Remember, from now
 on you're La Perry.
 Don't fail to teach
 your husband a good
      lesson."

51
"I'm afraid!"

52
"Brace up, my dear.
 Remember, La Perry
 has had Kings at her 
       feet."

53
"I'm so glad to meet
 you, my dear brother-
       in-law."

54
"So this is Helen's 
     husband!"

55
"Where is sister Helen?"

56
"She's visiting her
 mother. She's having 
  a wonderful time."

57
"Now don't you care.
 I'll see that you have
 a wonderful time
 while Helen is away."

58
"That's La Perry -
 the famous dancer."

59
"Someone important
 must be coming in."

60
"La Perry - La Perry."

61
"What charming modesty.
 You didn't even realize
 they were applauding 
         you."

62
"It doesn't mean a
 thing to me any
 more. Remember,
 I've had Kings at 
    my feet!"

63
"Which King was it?"

64
"The King was madly
 in love with me, and
 I was just finishing 
    my dance - -"

65
"Charmed by my dancing -
 the King seemed to forget
 the Queen was there, and -"

66
"I'm wearing the very
 same bracelet now."

67
"It wasn't wise of
 Helen to leave such
 a handsome husband
       alone."

68
"This is my sister-in-law, 
Mademoiselle La Perry.
 She'll spend a few 
      days here."

69
"This has been a most
 glorious evening - -"

70
"- - so far!"

71
"How that man 
  can kiss!"

72
"I've got him at 
    my feet!"

73
"And I'm going to make 
      him crawl!"

74
Women's crowning glory
   may be her hair,
But it's her legs that
   get her there!

75
"I think it's more
 beautiful than the
 one from the King."

76
"He seems quite crazy
      about you."

77
"Many men are crazy
  about me, Joseph."

78
"And has anyone 
   a chance?"

79
"Yes, one - but he's
 a bad boy - he's
     married!"

80
"Who is it?"

81
"Maybe I'll tell you
   this evening."

82
Not until the afternoon had
 gone did evening come.
And as the moon came 
up, Joseph came down -
   all eagerness.

83
"Mademoiselle La Perry
 is at the beauty
 parlor - but she'll be
     home soon."

84
"If you follow my
 instructions, he'll 
 propose to you 
     tonight."

85
"She's not here."

86
"Fine! I want to talk 
   to you anyhow."

87
"I love your sister-in-law
 and I want to marry 
         her."

88
"If you're a true friend,
 you'll find out if I have 
       a chance."

89
"Now you run along and
  I'll speak to her."

90
"Dinner is served."

91
"Of course you'll stay
      to dinner."

92
"He has an important
 engagement at the
 Embassy. The Chinese
 Ambassador's waiting
      for him."

93
"Oh, no - the Chinese
 Ambassador's out of
 town. I'd love to stay."

94
With the soup, Joseph
 hated Bob. With the 
nuts, he longed to
   strangle him.

95
"Mademoiselle - some-
 thing might happen 
 very soon, concerning
 you and one other
     person."

96
"Who is the other one?"

97
"My friend Joseph will
 tell you. I'll pop out."

98
"Robert said you would
  tell me something."

99
"Then I'll ask Bob."

100
"Joseph, you forget -
 I'm your sister-in-law."

101
"If I only could forget -
    for one minute!"

102
"Why not - just for
    one minute?"

103
"Joseph - we have
     sinned."

104
"I think it best
   I go away."

105
"I can't let you go!"

106
"Then let us go away
      together."

107
"I'm running away with
    my own husband."

108
"It's my wife!"

109
The girl made the
 journey in an hour.
The man made it in 
      a daze.

110
"This hotel is impossible.
 Why, Helen and I spent
 our honeymoon here."

111
"I have a little surprise
 for you. You can have
 the same room you
 occupied during your
     honeymoon."

112
"I hope you have a good
     night's rest."

113
"It's bad enough to
 come to the same
 hotel, but the same
 room - IMPOSSIBLE!"

114
"Alone!"

115
In the next few minutes
 Joseph lived an hour
      of agony.

116
"Joseph."

117
"Joseph dearest."

118
"We're caught!"

119
"Maybe it's my
     wife!"

120
"Quick, get out of
     this bed!"

121
"I'm in a terrible jam -
 I'm here with La Perry.
 You've got to help
       me out."

122
"Can't be done. Your
 wife's here. She made
 me bring her down."

123
"If you have any friendship
 left for me, keep Helen
   away for a moment."

124
"I can't go on with this.
 I'm awfully sorry, but
 I love my wife. You
   must let me go."

125
"Joseph, we've gone
 too far. I could never
 give you up - now!"

126
"Well, I'll free you
 on one condition!"

127
"You must swear you
 love your wife better
 than anyone in the
      world."

128
"I'll make the sacrifice."

129
"Then it is really all
 right for me to go?"

130
"Helen, can you ever
    forgive me?"

131
"Your wife has
 forgiven you."

132 [bottom line fades
     in after a pause]
"Joseph dear, it's been
 a glorious evening -
      so far!"
