Love

1
   IMPERIAL RUSSIA
The St. Petersburg road
from Gatchina -- a road
often traveled by the
gay young officers of
     the Czar --

2
"If Madame is going to
St. Petersburg....may
  I be of service?"

3
"The road is blocked....
you can't get through!"

4
"There is an inn near here,
  Madame, where we can 
   wait comfortably."

5
"You are very kind....
but I must hurry on 
to St. Petersburg."

6
"Very well, Madame....
we shall wait here....
and let the horses 
     freeze."

7
"It's Captain Vronsky....!"

8
"Will you get me a sleigh?
  I must go on tonight."

9
"Impossible, Madame....
   the storm...."

10
"Yes....I have already
prepared a room for
     Madame."

11
"Now, Marfa....a room
    for myself."

12
"You have not quarrelled....
so early in the evening.... ?"

13
"But I thought...of course...
I put your things in her 
        room...."

14
On parade the following
morning, the Grand Duke
Michael impatiently awaited
his aide -- Captain Count
        Vronsky.

15
"What delayed you?"

16
"The storm, Sir."

17
"Was she pretty?"

18
"Yes, Sir."

19
"Blonde....or brunette?"

20
"Blonde, Sir."

21
"Any luck?"

22
"No, Sir."

23
"Go back to your place....
and tell me about it later."

24
Easter Night -- St. Petersburg --
Night of solemn joy -- night of
    forgiveness -- --

25
"I'd give a thousand 
rubles for a drink!"

26
"Who is she?"

27
"Anna Karenina."

28
"Madame, I must seize
this Easter night....to
beg your forgiveness."

29
"On this holy night,
cleanse your hearts of 
hate....forgive your
neighbor even as you
hope to be forgiven."

30
"....if you knew how
wretched I am....you
would forgive...."

31
 -- Christ is Risen -- !
--- Christ is Risen --- !

32
"Senator Karenin....my
aide....Captain Count
      Vronsky."

33
"Count Vronsky....my
       wife."

34
"We are very happy that
we are to be honored with
Your Highness' presence
      tonight...."

35
"I always bring the Easter
   candle home for my
      little boy."

36
"I am going to light the
little lamp with this
candle....it will bring
  us good fortune."

37
"But suppose it goes 
       out?"

38
"Then, it will bring....
   bad fortune...."

39
"But it won't go out!"

40
"Madame, I have followed
you only to beg your
  forgiveness...."

41
"My offense was unforgivable.
I can only throw myself upon
      your mercy...."

42
"We shall be friends."

43
"Vronsky and Anna
have a great deal to
say to each other....
for a first meeting."

44
"Your promise of friendship
   makes me very happy."

45
"I hope you are going up 
to the Grand Duke's for 
    the wolf hunt."

46
"....at this dawn of a
new day, I wish you all
happiness....health....
   friendship...."

47
"....and love."

48
"I'm glad you came in,
Anna. Listen to this
      speech."

49
"I've never before asked 
you a favor. Let us
go away together....
somewhere....anywhere!"

50
"Go away? Impossible,
Anna....you know how
     busy I am."

51
"By the way, your
animated conversation
with Count Vronsky
attracted attention...."

52
"...you realize, of course
...any gossip about my
wife reflects upon me..."

53
"You are perfectly right.
I shall never see Count
    Vronsky again!"

54
"Don't dramatize your-
self, Anna. Of course
you must see him again.
He is the Grand Duke's 
       aide!"

55
"Why did you disturb 
 me? Now I shan't 
  sleep a wink."

56
"Let's take the short 
cut and head him off!"

57
"I'm sorry, but we'll
never be in at the
 finish....now."

58
"It doesn't matter! The
best part of hunting is
the ride....and that's 
   been glorious!"

59
"Shall we give the horses 
  five minutes' rest?"

60
"We'd never find the 
others now....and as
far as I'm concerned,
  we needn't try!"

61
"God, how I love the 
country....and a good 
      horse!"

62
"I love it too! I was
born in the country....
almost in the saddle."

63
"Funny world, isn't it?
We have so much in 
common....and yet...."

64
"Well, we won't solve 
the world's problems 
today! Wasn't that 
a great jump at the 
   last gate?"

65
"Curious....wasn't it....
the way Vronsky and 
Anna....disappeared?"

66
"....no....I don't believe
it wise for us to see
each other very often..."

67
"Perhaps....but knowing
you even for this short 
time....has meant so
     much...."

68
"I've been careless....
reckless....but that's
all changed. May I
  tell you why?"

69
"It's getting late! I'd
  forgotten the time."

70
"Do you know why
you forgot...why we
     forgot?"

71
"Because for the first 
time we've each talked 
to the one person who 
really understood...."

72
"Because into our empty 
lives has swept a force
that is overwhelming us 
      both...."

73
".....because we love 
each other....Anna...."

74
"The gardener said I 
mustn't ride my pony 
  on the lawn...."

75
"...and I said that you
said that I could...and
he said....that you
      said...."

76
"You haven't heard one 
   word I said...."

77
"Mother....you've forgotten
      something...."

78
"....but, Anna....these
months have shown us
this is not a passing
romance...it is our life!"

79
"How can I go away 
    with you?"

80
"But we can't go on
hiding our love as
though it were some-
thing shameful...."

81
"....to see you, and not
touch you...to love you,
and not have you....
no....we'll never see 
each other again...."

82
"You love him more?"

83
"There is no more...nor
less...in love. I love you 
  both infinitely...."

84
"Then I must decide 
   for you...."

85
"Good-bye."

86
In St. Petersburg, one might
avoid meeting certain people
for a time. But the military 
races brought everyone
      together --

87
"It has been a long 
time since I've seen 
     you...."

88
"Yes....very...."

89
"Good racing weather..."

90
"Yes....very...."

91
"You are looking well....
     Madame...."

92
"Alexei....I'm worried....
terribly worried....about
        you...."

93
"I've heard...you've been 
drinking...you're not fit 
   to race today...!"

94
"Alexei....if anything
 happened to you...."

95
"Good luck, Captain
     Vronsky!"

96
"Sometime in the future....
we'll discuss the little 
matter of this after-
      noon...."

97
"Why do you torture me?
If you know....why don't 
    you say so....?"

98
"I may not wish to know....
at this time. I may find it
more convenient not to 
       know...."

99
"Why don't you beat 
me....turn me out....
challenge Vronsky?"

100
"I shall do nothing
   sensational."

101
"Take my arm. You will
keep up appearances in
my home....at least."

102
"Shocking accident to
our young friend, wasn't
         it?"

103
"Count Vronsky is at
his apartment. His one
concern was that you
 should not worry."

104
"Madame Karenina came
while you were with the 
doctor. She is waiting."

105
"Anna, you have done 
the one thing I forbade
....made public your 
       guilt."

106
"Anna and I love 
each other...."

107
"....and I am ready to 
give you satisfaction!"

108
"My satisfaction will
come....without the
risk of my life....with-
out compromising my 
     career!"

109
"You will destroy each 
       other!"

110
After three months' 
travel -- Italy --

111
"Anna, are you really 
      happy?"

112
"Of course I'm happy,
   Alexei. Why?"

113
"Anna, there's a sadness 
in your eyes. We have
only each other....why
won't you tell me what 
     it is....?"

114
"Give me a kiss...."

115
"How can you say you 
love me....when every 
moment you're longing 
  for your child?"

116
"When we came away 
together....we promised 
to give up everything 
for each other...."

117
"....and now you want 
to go back to the place
where we are outcasts!
You want to show them
our love is a failure!"

118
"Anna....!"

119
"Anna, my darling....
   forgive me...."

120
"I'm so in love with you....
the thought of anything,
anyone....between us....
    maddens me...."

121
"Say you forgive me....
say you understand...."

122
"Darling....the world
doesn't matter....we'll
go back. You shall see
     your child."

123
St. Petersburg --

124
"I am sorry, Madame....
but I must ask the 
master's permission..."

125
"Mother, I knew you 
would come on my 
   birthday!"

126
"They told me you were 
dead....but I never 
   believed it."

127
"Mother....you'll never
go away again....will
        you?"

128
"Let me come and see 
him sometimes. He
   needs me."

129
"He thought you dead....
had forgotten you. He'll 
    forget again."

130
"Better you were dead....
than to live, a constant
reminder to him of your
     disgrace."

131
"But you will not be alone 
in your wretchedness...."

132
"For many generations the
name of Vronsky has been
written with honor upon
the rolls of the most famous
  regiment in Russia...."

133
"....tomorrow the Grand 
Duke will order the name 
of Vronsky to be struck 
with dishonor from the
rolls of that regiment....!"

134
"I can conceive of no
greater punishment....
no greater humiliation....
for Captain Count Alexei
     Vronsky!"

135
"Madame....I have loved
him as a son....but the
honor of the regiment
  must be upheld!"

136
"I love him more than
my life. If I went away
....never to see him 
     again....?"

137
"Never to see him again?
You would do that.... ?"

138
"Send for him tonight....
       and...."

139
"...when he comes back
to the hotel, I will be
      gone...."

140
"....never to see him
       again."

141
"Alexei....there's always 
been a Vronsky in the 
    regiment...."

142
"You have a great future.
Don't throw it away....
come to your senses....!"

143
"Alexei....no woman is
   worth it....!"

144
"You see....we love
    you, too."

145
"Did you see your son?"

146
"They had told him 
   I was dead."

147
"Did you go to....the
       Club?"

148
"Do they know?"

149
"Know what?"

150
"That...that you are to
leave your regiment...?"

151
"Anna....even death 
could never part us..."

152
"The Grand Duke wants
  to see you...."

153
"That sounds hopeful...."

154
"I'll go in the morning."

155
"No....no....you must go
    now....at once!"

156
"Alexei, always remember....
I love you....I love you...."

157
"We are all happy 
to welcome Captain 
  Vronsky home."

158
"You see, Vronsky....how
  we all love you...."

159
"Then, Sir, may we 
drink to....Love?"

160
"To....Love."

161
For three years Vronsky
had been searching for
Anna -- always in vain.

162
"Sir, will you grant me 
 a leave of absence?"

163
"You mean to tell me,
Serezha, you don't
remember a brother 
    officer?"

164
"But you haven't forgotten 
 your mother, have you?"

165
"Of course not! She comes
to see me every day since
    father's death."

The End
