Lady of the Night

1
"Thought I'd name 
 the baby Molly --"

2
"-- Twenty years in
 the penitentiary --"

3
"Pretty soft for your
 kid, but what about
        mine?"

4
After eighteen
  years --

5
Commencement day
 for Florence Banning,
motherless daughter of 
the judge --

	- Norma Shearer

6
Molly Helmer, daughter
 of the convict, now an
orphan, also graduates --

	- Norma Shearer

7
"Well -- what are we
   going to do now?"

8
"I'll bite -- what are
   we going to do?"

9
"See you at Kelly's."

10
Jimmy Kelly's Palais
     de Danse --

11
"That's Molly Helmer.
 She's 'Chunky' Dunn's
         girl."

12
"Chunky" Dunn, a prince
  of fashion --

	- George K. Arthur

13
"My gawd, dearie, how 
   them egrettes do
      stand up!"

14
"We gotta go. We're
 dated with some
 jolly undertakers
 from Schenectady."

15
"Yeh, they dance round
 on your feet half the
 night and then crave
      affection."

16
"Florence is lovely. I wish
 her mother could see her
         tonight."

17
"Thally's in the cothy
   corner with Tham."

18
"But she doesn't seem 
    to mind it --"

19
"Say, what do you 
 mean pulling that 
 cheek-to-cheek stuff 
    in public?"

20
"Well, we licked 
       him."

21
"Molly, meet my friend, 
      Dave Page."

22
"Schenectady."

23
He was coming 
 to dinner!

24
"Gosh, my dogs hurt!"

25
"Stop walking back 
 from auto rides."

26
"Lookit all the implements!
  Swell company tonight?"

27
"I'll help you, Molly."

28
"Well, ta, ta, dearie -
 we're entertaining 
  some shy sheiks
  from Cheyenne."

29
"I hope one of them's
   a shyropodist."

30
David Page had a
 workshop in the
neighborhood of the
   dance-hall.

31
"Sorry I'm late 
  for dinner."

32
"I've got great
   news --!"

33
"I have an invention
 that will open any 
 safe in the world."

34
"I know a gang 
 of crooks that'll 
     buy it."

35
"No, David!"

36
"Don't go crooked.
  It don't pay."

37
"If crooks can use it to
 get in safes -- can't
 bankers use it to keep
       them out?"

38
"Bankers will steal it.
 Crooks will be on the 
    level with you."

39
"No, I've had dinner."

40
David follows Molly's
       advice.

41
"You see, Judge Banning,
 the vital principle lies
 in the super-sensitized
      magnet --"

42
"All right, young man,
 we will draw up the 
      contract."

43
"My daughter, Florence
    -- Mr. Page."

44
"Well, dear, what
  did you want?"

45
"I've forgotten --"

46
"Girls, I just met the 
  thrillingest man!"

47
"Ithn't he perfectly
   dithlocating?"

48
"What you made
    up for?"

49
"A lady."

50
"Nothing like it."

51
"You don't look like
 the Prince of Wales
      yourself."

52
"A lady and the 
 Prince of Wales."

53
"I wonder if it's hard
  to be respectable?"

54
"It takes a lot of
      money."

55
"Come on, Molly, let's get
 out of this -- let's go
 out West in the wide
   open spaces --"

56
"I may be a millionaire
       some day."

57
"I'll marry you if
  you want me to."

58
"Don't be so reckless."

59
"It's that Dave guy."

60
"Watch him give you
 the gate after he
 sells that invention."

61
"He won't! He won't!"

62
"The Security Bank
 has accepted it."

63
"-- well, I'll tell you -- I
 showed the blue-prints to 
 Judge Banning and the
 other bank directors --"

64
"-- and then his
  daughter came
     in --"

65
"-- and then he told
 me he would fix up
  the contract --"

66
"Is she pretty?"

67
"The judge's
  daughter?"

68
"Let's celebrate!"

69
"To Dave's success
  with the upper
      crust!"

70
In selling his invention,
 David also sold himself
  to the Bannings - -
 especially to Florence.

71
"Vile stuff -- I never
       use it."

72
"In my day, girls didn't
  go to dances with
  strange young men,
        alone."

73
"You never married,
 did you, Auntie?"

74
"No style, no style!"

75
"You fix these. I want
 to look like that Wales
         guy."

76
"You know I don't
 approve of Florence
 going out without
 a chaperone, Mr.
      Page."

77
"But my car holds
    only two."

78
"Isn't it thrilling to
   be a successful 
      inventor?"

79
"Would you let a mere
 woman come and see
   your workshop?"

80
"Will you?"

81
"I've turned my invention 
 over to your father, but
 I'd love to have you see
       my workshop."

82
His workshop!

83
"It's my fault. I'm 
 wicked -- wicked!"

84
"I love you, Florence
  -- I love you."

85
"Take me home!"

86
"You will come to the
   shop tomorrow?"

87
"I'll come - if -"

88
Two women of two
 worlds send forth
their prayers --

89
"I'm worried about
 Florence. She's 
 seeing too much of
 that young Page."

90
"He seems to be
 a decent sort."

91
"But Florence is so young.
 Last night she went to
 the dance with him, and
 tonight she's meeting him
          again."

92
"Perhaps you're right.
 I'll speak to her when
    she comes in."

93
"Is this my answer?"

94
"Yes -- David."

95
"Oh, excuse me --"

96
"Miss Banning, this 
     is Molly."

97
"Thought you might be
 going to Kelly's --"

98
"But I guess you
      ain't."

99
"Molly's a great girl
 and I owe everything
     to her --"

100
"It was through her
  that I met you."

101
"She loves you, David.
 I could see it in her
        face."

102
"Why, Molly's been in
  love with 'Chunky'
   Dunn for years."

103
"A woman knows,
     David."

104
"Molly's a good little pal,
  but I never loved her."

105
"I love you, David.
 Nothing can change 
      that --"

106
"But Molly has a
 greater claim."

107
"Gee, this is a swell
   car, ain't it?"

108
"You'd marry David
 if it wasn't for me,
   wouldn't you?"

109
"Please marry him,
  and make him
     happy."

110
"But what about
      you?"

111
"There's 'Chunky' --
 we've been in love
    for years!"

112
"You been hanging
 around here long
 enough breaking
 that kid's heart."

113
"Well, I'm looking after
  her. You marry her
   -- or get out!"

114
"Why didn't you meet
   me at Kelly's?"

115
"I've been on a
   little --"

116
"-- joy-ride."

117
"Well, David, you're
 the first to know
      it --"

118
"-- 'Chunky' and I are
 going to get hitched
 and then do a covered
         wagon."

119
"Don't be previous!"

120
"She thinks we're
 married already."

121
"Pack your things,
  Molly -- we're
   going West."

122
"Molly is going to
  marry 'Chunky'."

123
"-- so you see
 I was right."

124
"Yes, dear, you
  were right."

125
"The great open
   spaces --"

126
"Well, at least there'll
   be a lotta laughs."
