Paths to Paradise

1
San Francisco's
      underworld -

2
- where the venturesome 
visitor pays dearly for
    his curiosity.

3
 "This is the toughest 
dive in the city!"

4
 "And there, folks, is something
few people ever see - the Queen
of the Counterfeiters - actually
making money!"

5
 "Let's get out of this
dreadful place!"

6
"Get 'em while they're hot!"

7
 "I've got a dude outside who 
wants to see a Chinese joint!
Get busy!"

8
"May I come in?"

9
"Fli' dollee."

10
 "He wanchee ten dollee
buy hop. He no smokee -
go clazy - kill somebody."

11
 "You likee meet Queen
of Chinatown?"

12
"Twenty dollee."

13
"Your name is - ?"

14
"Mr. McIntosh."

15
 "Mr. McIntosh - I know
I can trust you -"

16
"- I'm a captive here -"

17
"What's your name?"

18
"Mr. Dusenberry."

19
 "Where are you going 
with my gal?"

20
 "He was trying to rescue 
me from you crooks."

21
 "You no shootee quick -
you dead man!"

22
 "You've killed him! And
all for my sake!"

23
 "Pletty soon police come
- they hangee you for this."

24
 "We must get someone 
to take the blame!"

25
 "Me say I shootee him -
for fli' hundred dollee!"

26
 "All exits guarded -
patrol wagon ready?"

27
 "How can a pretty girl like
you stoop to this cheap sight-
seeing graft?"

28
 "You can't bribe the Chief,
he's too honest!"

29
 "All right! I'll try and
talk the Chief into it."

30
 "Why don't you go back to
the old home - wherever
it is?"

31
 "All right, I'll let you go
this time - for the sake
of the girl!"

32
 "- but next time you
won't get off so easily!"

33
"We've been triple-crossed!"

34
Next morning -
  a waterfront episode.

35
 "Had it sent from Antwerp
- it's a wedding present for
my daughter."

36
 "Better not flash it around
- some crook might take a 
fancy to it."

37
 "You're right! Lucky there
aren't any crooks on the
dock!"

38
 "- and the only rock any
bigger is Gibraltar."

39
 "Here comes the old man 
now! I knew he'd show up
in the hotel."

40
"Mr. Clark - paging Mr. Clark!"

41
"Is she pretty?"

42
 "There's that fly bird who
trimmed us in the dive. He's
just the man to help us with
this job."

43
 "You remember the Queen 
of Chinatown, don't you? How
are all the little gas meters 
today?"

44
 "Listen, you're a pretty 
smooth worker. How would
you like to team up with 
me on a job?"

45
 "I never form partnerships
with women - they always
get one into trouble."

46
 "Mr. Callahan - paging 
Mr. Callahan!"

47
 "But - your name isn't
Callahan!"

48
 "I answer all names -
one never knows what
it may lead to."

49
"You're Mr. Callahan?"

50
"It's here!"

51
"It's a Jim Dandy!"

52
"Where is it?"

53
"It's safe at home."

54
 "Come out tonight and see
it. The wedding's tomorrow,
you know."

55
 "Beat it! Here comes
Callahan, the detective!"

56
 "Looking for an easy mark,
eh? Why don't you take my 
advice - and go straight?"

57
 "I - I - I'm thinking it
over, right now."

58
"Now about that job - "

59
 "Mr. Callahan - I want you
to meet Mr. - er - Mr. - "

60
 "You were being paged 
a moment ago."

61
 "By the way - what is the
name of that little old man
you were talking to?"

62
"I don't know. Do you?"

63
"What's your name and address?"

64
"You'll hear from us later."

65
A reception in honor
 of his daughter's 
approaching wedding.

66
 "Run away, daughter! You're
not going to see this until
tomorrow, after you're married."

67
 "Well, I guess I'd better
put it in the safe."

68
 "Would you like to see
the biggest diamond in
the country?"

69
 "The detectives are 
here, sir!"

70
 "What are you doing
here?"

71
 "I've taken your advice
about going straight."

72
 "I'm trying to go straight
because you want me to -
and now you won't believe
me!"

73
 "I'm for you, kid! Stick to
this job and I'll help you all
I can!"

74
 "Say, I had the necklace 
in my hands a minute 
ago - it will be a cinch!"

75
 "If you want to keep this
job, cut out the sweeties!"

76
 "Come right in -
Mr. Tuttle!"

77
"What's your game?"

78
"I'm a guest."

79
 "Don't kid me! I know
you're after that diamond!"

80
 "Trying to put one over 
on me, eh? Well, you're
not going to get it - and
I am."

81
 "Ah, here you are
Mr. - er - Mr. - -"

82
"Cedarbrook."

83
 "Come right into the library 
and see the diamond."

84
"Who are those fellows?"

85
 "Well, well! I won't have 
to worry about the diamond
while you're around!"

86
 "That silk-hat slicker is
here! We'll have to work 
fast!"

87
 "So, that's where you keep 
the hand-polished ice, eh?"

88
 "No, that's where I keep
the diamond - the ice is in
the ice-box."

89
 "Daughter, let me present
Mr. - Mr. - "

90
"Beechwood."

91
 "This is my prospective
son-in-law. He makes the 
Dreadnaught Safe - I've got
one."

92
"Are you in the safe business?"

93
 "No - but I've been interested
in your safes - for years."

94
 "Folks, I want you to meet
the greatest detective on
earth!"

95
"I'll be back later!"

96
 "Hey! Some of these folks 
won't believe you're the world's
greatest detective!"

97
 "Give me a test! Hide your
watch while I'm out of the
room - and I'll find it!"

98
"Be sure and close the doors!"

99
 "Try again - in a harder 
place - take plenty of time."

100
"All I want is one more chance!"

101
 "We're trying to fool the
detective! You take this
watch and hide it!"

102
"WHERE'S THAT MAID?"

103
 "Please try to stand the 
shock - the diamond is 
gone!"

104
"HELL'S BELLS!"

105
 "I'll bet those birds know 
something about it!"

106
"Search them!"

107
 "You're altogether too care-
less with your diamonds! They
might be stolen!"

108
 "Now let's put that necklace 
right back in the safe!"

109
"NOW - GUARD - THAT - SAFE!"

110
"WITH - OUR - LIVES!"

111
"I knew you'd find it."

112
Four o'clock
     in the morning.

113
 "Say, there's no use of us
tripping over each other on
this job. How about teaming 
up?"

114
 "I never form partnerships
with men - they always get 
one into trouble."

115
 "I suppose you know this 
means twenty years apiece!"

116
 "Stick here while I take these 
birds to the station! I'll soon
make 'em squeal and we'll nab
the whole gang!"

117
 "Don't worry about those boys!
We'll bail them out - after we 
get the diamond."

118
"That you, Bill?"

119
 "These birds have squealed!
Hold the maid and that fake 
detective! I'll be right over!"

120
 "Thought we saw some-
one prowling around 
outside."

121
 "That was me - keep
on the job, boys."

122
 "Your pals have squeaked!
Callahan is coming over to
pinch us!"

123
 "We'll have to make a 
quick get-away! Watch
the outside!"

124
 "I'll beat it. Meet you
tomorrow and we'll split 
fifty-fifty."

125
 "I'll take it! I'm the maid
- they won't suspect me."

126
 "I can't let you take 
such a risk."

127
 "I thought as much!
You're like all the rest -
a double-crosser!"

128
 "I never dreamed you would
doubt my honesty!"

129
 "Someone helped you
carry that safe up here!
Who was it?"

130
 "For the last time - are
you going to tell me who
helped you?"

131
 "All right, it's the police 
station for you!"

132
 "Where's my hat? 
Here, hold her! I'll
get it!"

133
 "You idiot! Why did
you put the diamond 
back in the safe?"

134
"Where are they?"

135
 "Who? Why, the maid -
and that detective guy?"

136
 "Oh, the little detective!
He just took the maid to
headquarters."

137
 "You fools! They're both
crooks! Didn't I phone 
you to nab them?"

138
 "You're all wet about the 
little detective - and, any-
way, the diamond's safe."

139
 "They'll head for Mexico!
Phone every police station
to watch for them!"

140
 "Our one chance is to
get to Mexico! Once 
across the line we'll be
safe!"

141
"More cops!"

142
"MORE COPS!"

143
 "I'm tired of this crooked
business! I think we 
ought to go straight!"

144
"MORE COPS!"

145
 "We've given them 
the slip!"

146
 "They've given us 
the shake!"

147
"We're out of gas!"

148
 "I wonder if we're 
doing right?"

149
 "We can't cross the line -
international complications!"

150
 "Nothing doing! We're 
going back!"

151
 "That's how I like to travel!
Jog along - take your time -
and see the country!"
