The Notorious Lady

1
Married women usually visit
 single men's apartments for
a reason - and occasionally
    for a good reason.

2
Gilbert Patton, wealthy
 publisher, who has made
every proposal that a man can 
make to a woman, with the
exception of one - marriage.

         . . . Lloyd Whitlock

3
Mrs. Patrick Marlow - -
 who is visiting a single
man's apartment and is afraid
to have anyone know.

       . . . Barbara Bedford

4
Patrick Marlow - - her
 husband - who already
knows.

     . . . LEWIS STONE

5
"I - - I simply had to
       see you!"

6
"Are you being regretful -
    or enthusiastic?"

7
"Please don't try to be
 romantic. You know
   I detest you!"

8
"These false rumors that
 are linking my name with 
 yours - why haven't you
     stopped them?"

9
"Because I started them."

10
"You're as contemptible as
 that! What do you think
 these untruths will bring
           you?"

11
"What are you trying to
 put over on my wife?"

12
"You've got me to deal
       with now!"

13
Justice.

14
"They didn't believe me -
 they didn't believe me -
 I told the truth - they
  didn't believe me - -"

15
"There isn't a chance in
 the world for him - the
 testimony's all against
   him - he's guilty."

16
"I guess you're right. That
 one juror can't hold out
       much longer."

17
"If his wife had been guilty
 he'd have a chance - -
 the unwritten law is still
 stronger than the written
           one."

18
"Do you think he'll be
   found - guilty?"

19
"Gentlemen of the jury,
 have you arrived at a
       verdict?"

20
"We, the gentlemen of this
 jury, find the defendant
    guilty as charged."

21
"Wait! I lied! I was
 Patton's mistress! I
        lied!"

22
"If the new evidence
 warrants, I shall grant
    another trial."

23
So Mary Marlow saved
 her husband's life - but
lost his love. A year later,
word of his death came
from the coast of South
        Africa.

24
Africa - fever - delirium -
and the truth falling for 
the first time from the lips
of a man known as John 
        Carewe.

25
Williams - who came as
 a servant and became
a friend.

      . . . Gunnis Davis

26
Kameela, who has been
 bold enough to love 
her master - and brave
enough to hide it.

        . . . Ann Rork

27
To have the tropic fever
  was to have Dr.
Grant - - British - -
brusque - efficient.

    . . . E. J. Ratcliffe

28
"I am dead! I died a year
 ago! Don't let them know
 I'm Patrick Marlow!
        Don't!"

29
"How long have you
    known him?"

30
"About eight months, sir.
 We were on a diamond
 expedition up Phantom
 River till he got the fever."

31
The coast steamer, NATAL,
 moving north from Cape
Town, always carried a
strange cargo of people bound
   out of civilization.

32
Mary Marlow - under the
 name of Mary Brownlee -
had crossed continents and
seas to try to solve the
mystery of her husband's death.

33
Anthony Walford - adventurer
 and gentleman - a resident
member of the best clubs in
London, Cairo and Calcutta.

        . . . Earle Metcalfe

34
Marcia Rivers - Dr. Grant's
 sister - returning after a
futile season in London -
still a widow.

        . . . Grace Carlisle

35
"You seem to have struck
 up quite a friendship with
 Miss Brownlee. What is
 it that makes her always
       so unhappy?"

36
"That is something that she
 never talks about - and I
 haven't asked. I feel that
 people have a right to their
       own sorrows."

37
"Play an ace! You have
        plenty!"

38
Manuel Silvera, who has
 a million dollars and
not a single scruple.

. . . Francis MacDonald

39
"Miss Brownlee seems so
 lonely - I must apologize
 for being so late in finding
            her."

40
"Angry? You cannot stop
 me from loving you -
 It would be much more
 convenient to love me."

41
"Was Silvera bothering
         you?"

42
"Mary - - I love you!"

43
Freed of the fever, Marlow
 was eager to go back up
Phantom River .... Danger
seemed to calm his nerves.

44
Carlos, Kameela's father,
 guide of the expedition.
A good man - - to be
careful of.

       . . . Nick de Ruiz

45
"Hunting diamonds is
 gambling with death -
 and Silvera's hardly the
 man I'd choose for a
       partner."

46
"I know his reputation -
 but he was the only man
 willing to finance the trip."

47
"There's the launch from
 the steamer. My sister
 and Silvera should both
        be on it."

48
"I told you many things in
 my delirium. The world
 believes Patrick Marlow
 dead. I'm relying on you
   to keep my secret."

49
"I'm so glad my sister induced
 you to stay with us, Miss
 Brownlee. She's usually so
       lonely here."

50
"A chap in Singapore told
 me about the Phantom
 River - and diamonds -
 and danger. It sort of made
 me want to come here."

51
"John Carewe is just about
 to leave on an expedition up
 the river. Maybe I can get
  him to take you along."

52
"They'll fight disease and
 death at every step - -
 but if you like adventure,
 here's a chance to make
          it pay."

53
"Well, I've found excitement
 already! I'm going on a
   diamond expedition!"

54
"Dr. Grant arranged it."

55
"If they don't come soon,
 you'd better blow the
        whistle."

56
"I asked you not to
     come here."

57
"I couldn't go away without
      saying goodbye."

58
"I'm glad you came - -
     to say goodbye."

59
"Just that you care enough
 about me to insult me is
      a compliment!"

60
"Insulting you, Mr. Silvera,
 is the greatest tribute I can
   pay to your reputation."

61
"So you know my reputation!
 Well, I know yours, too!"

62
"Goodbye - Mrs. Patrick
         Marlow."

63
"Was Patrick Marlow
   your husband?"

64
"At the trial, I swore that
 the man my husband killed
    had been my lover."

65
"I lied! I had to lie to
        save him."

66
"The jury believed my
 testimony and freed him.
 But he believed me too -
 and he left, despising me."

67
"It makes me love you
 more! Mary, won't you -
       marry me?"

68
"Yes - - I will."

69
"There's a fascinating lady
 at the doctor's bungalow.
 I think we'll wait some
    time for Walford."

70
"I'll get him."

71
"You've made me very
        happy."

72
"I'm sorry I made you wait,
 but I've just become engaged.
 Won't you come up and
     meet my fiancée?"

73
"He's an unhappy man, 
   Patrick Marlow."

74
"Patrick Marlow! Why all
 London and New York are
 talking of him! Is he
     here - alive?"

75
"Go up to your wheel -
 I won't turn back, now."

76
After arduous, hazardous
 weeks, Carewe and his
party held wealth in their
          hands.

77
"He's smart. He knows
 how to pick the best
        ones."

78
"I took this from one of
      your natives."

79
"You and Carewe better
 stop having your natives
 rob me. I'm on to you."

80
"There's a fortune here!"

81
"You never asked, Williams,
 but you share equally with 
      the rest of us."

82
"Will I be able to own
 a cottage in Devonshire,
        Guv'ner?"

83
"You'll be able to own
      Devonshire!"

84
"No news yet - perhaps
       tomorrow."

85
"He never takes off
     that belt."

86
"Tonight we'll take it off."

87
"I've got the natives fixed,
 and if we can get Carewe's
 ammunition, we can get
 the whole damned camp."

88
Night .... the accomplice
        of evil.

89
"I'm beginning to like
 Africa - I even get a
 kick out of those fool
        drums."

90
"I don't! They get my
   nerves on edge."

91
"Keep the natives full of
 wine, and charge the
 plateau when you hear
       my shot."

92
"When a man goes through
 this, he generally does it for
   a woman - did you?"

93
"No - because of a woman."

94
"Say, it's going to be great
 to be able to give that
 girl who's waiting for me
 everything she wants!"

95
"Would you like to see
    her photograph?"

96
"Carlos and Silvera are out
 to do you up, Guv'ner -
 Kameela heard 'em plotting -"

97
"You've been mighty good
 to me, Guv'ner. I hate
 to go - like this - just
 when you really need
       me - -"

98
"I - I - won't need that
 cottage in Devonshire
        now - -"

99
"We need more ammunition."

100
"They're coming around
 in back of us - and we
 haven't a shot to meet
         them!"

101
"The river! The river's 
   your only chance!"

102
"If you get through - give
 my share to the girl at 
 Dr. Grant's. Her name is 
 Mrs. Patrick Marlow -"

103
"Mrs. Patrick Marlow is
        my wife!"

104
"So you're the dirty rat!
 And you've let her think
 you're dead! You should
 be - and you would be if 
   it wasn't for her!"

105
"When she told the truth
 you were convicted! Then
 she lied - to save your
          life!"

106
"She took all the shame that
 a woman can take - just
        for you!"

107
"- - and you went away
 and left her - - after
 she'd gone through hell to
        save you!"

108
"My God! And I was
 fool enough to believe it!"

109
"Quick! The river! Go to
 her! Ask her to forgive
          you!"

110
"She loves you, now! And
 I'm going to take you
 back there - back to her!"

111
"Fire the engine! Quick!"

112
So a morning some time later
 found the little steamer out
of the jungle and out of
 danger - nearing home.

113
"I brought him back 
       to you."

114
"The man you love -
 and wealth; the only
 atonement I can make."

115
"He loves you - forgive
  him - and forget me."
