The Red Lily

[reconstructed titles]

1
"Lord, make me to know
   mine end, and the
measure of my days, what
 it is, that I may know
    how frail I am!"

2
Just outside the little
 French town of 
 Vivonne, in Brittany --

3
Since childhood they
 had been sweethearts -
 the Mayor's son.

Jean Leonnec - Ramon Novarro

4
And the cobbler's
 daughter -

Marise La Noue - Enid Bennett

5
--- And ahead of them
the future lay, - -
a long, bright road of
love and happiness.

6
The most imposing
 building in the
 town - the City Hall.

7
--- And the most
imposing personage
in town was Jean's
father, Hugo Leonnec -
   the Mayor.

8
"Quick - - I must see
 the mayor at once."

9
"Come quickly -- it is
     the cobbler."

10
"It was his heart - -
my child - your father
      is dead."

11
In scarcely a week the
 ties of a lifetime were
 severed - - and
 Marise, impoverished
 and alone, was to go to
 her next of kin.

12
Her next of kin.

13
"I am --- Marise."

14
"She is pure as an angel - -
 and I love her. When I
 come of age I'm going
     to marry her."

15
Instinctively she sought
 refuge in the only home
 she had ever known.

16
"I saw the light and
    wondered who 
     was here."

17
"What is it?"

18
"It's tomorrow."

19
"Jean, dear, I must
     get back!"

20
"You are not going 
    back there!"

21
"But what else can I do?"

22
"I'll not let you go back -
I love you - and I want to
       protect you."

23
 "How can you? You
know what your father
     would say."

24
"No matter what he says,
 I'll marry you, Marise."

25
"Father, I love Marise - -
   I want to marry her."

26
"You mean you must
    marry her."

27
"Get out of this town,
 you shameless pauper!"

28
"If she goes - -
 I go with her!"

29
A train thundering
 through the night - -
 its destination -
 the future.

30
"Have you ever been
 to Paris before?"

31
"My son is a thief. I
   never want to see 
   his face again."

32
Paris.

33
"I'll inquire where we
   can be married.
  I won't be long."

34
"Hello, Jean Leonnec."

35
"You're under arrest."

36
"But I can't go with 
 you - there's someone
   waiting for me!"

37
 "They'll have to wait.
 We've only ten minutes 
 to catch the train back 
      to Vivonne."

38
Two hours passed.

39
"Don't tell it to us - -
 tell it to your father
 when we get back."

40
It was night before
 he made his way
 back to Paris.

41
Madame Charpide, an
 expert at figures.

42
Her husband - also
 an expert at figures.

43
"Stupid pigs - -
 the poor little
 thing starving."

44
"- - and he jumped
 from the train and 
     escaped."

45
  "You need search no
further for my son. This
    man confessed to 
  stealing the money."

46
For weeks the boy who
 believed himself a
 fugitive haunted the
 streets - - returning
 always to the station -
 searching - searching -
 searching - -

47
Later that night...... 
 on the banks of 
 the Seine - -

48
Bobo... Wallace Beery

49
"The water's cold, son."

50
"I wasn't thinking of 
  that, I - I - was 
 looking for someone."

51
"Woman?"

52
"Expect to find her 
     in there?"

53
"Perhaps."

54
"Why worry about one 
  woman? There are 
plenty more in Paris."

55
"None like her... 
she has the face 
  of an angel!"

56
"I know... I had one
 like that.... once."

57
"I see you don't like 
 men... Neither do I. 
        Come!"

58
And weeks became 
  months ---

59
"I've been watching you 
 all week. I am afraid 
 that work is too hard 
       for you."

60
"I'll get you a position 
 in the cloak room. It 
 will be easier for you."

61
"So you're from Brittany?
That's where I come from."

62
"Whatever brought you 
      to Paris?"

63
"--- and I never 
 saw him again."

64
"My poor child - - you
 mean he deserted you?"

65
"Oh, no, he wouldn't 
do that - - not Jean!"

66
"Must I go through 
  all this again?"

67
"Please, sir, what am 
      I to do?"

68
 "Collect your wages at 
the office as you go out."

69
At Bouchard's.... where
 the art of hiding from 
 the police is thoroughly 
       understood.

70
Mama and Papa Bouchard 
  had been married 
   twenty years.

71
"Soon my fat wife will
 die... and I shall take
   you to St. Moritz."

72
"His liver gets worse 
 every day... It won't be 
 long before we go to 
 Monte Carlo together."

73
Nana.

74
"You're wasting your 
 time, Nana. He's 
 still looking for a 
 wench with the face 
   of an Angel!"

75
Where the path he 
  followed had 
     to end.

76
Madame Poussot's

77
"There are too many
 empty glasses here.
     Get busy!"

78
"What's one year?...
Wait till you've done
   ten like have."

79
"Still looking for an 
  angel... in Paris?"

80
In the year that followed
  Jean learned what it
was really to be hunted
    by the police.

81
"If you're dodging 
 the police, kid, 
  come with me."

82
"I waited for you - -"

83
"I waited so long... but
you didn't come back - -"

84
"I waited so long - -"

85
"Don't lie to us. We've
 traced him up here
 by the blood stains."

86
"Think you're smart, don't 
 you? Well, that's my 
 blood on the stairs...
 I fell and cut my cheek."

87
Dawn.

88
"Marise!"

89
"Marise... it's tomorrow."

90
"I'll not let you go 
 back... I love you - -"

91
"You have the face 
   of an angel."

92
"No matter what he 
 says, I'm going to 
 marry you, Marise."

93
"Not you, you!"

94
For weeks his wound
 and his fear of the
police kept him there,
while Marise tended
and watched over him
like a faithful dog.

95
"Chicken, eh?"

96
"Money must be 
 coming easy."

97
"Does that look easy?"

98
"Hello, angel-face."

99
"Ah, one of the 
 angel's wings!"

100
"The police are apt 
 to pop in here again.
 You'd better clear out 
 as soon as you're 
 strong enough."

101
"I want you to go now...
 and never come back."

102
The Toad.

103
"So this is the angel
 you've been searching 
     for so long!"

104
"I don't know her...
 Let the Toad have 
 her... That's all 
 she's fit for now."

105
"Who turned that wildcat 
      loose on me?"

106
"The police!"

107
"Go - - go! They won't
   bother with me."

108
"The girl is at the 
Hospital Saint Louis - 
       dying."

109
"They may have followed
 you here. If you go,
 they'll get all of us."

110
"Merciful Father, hear
 me, a sinner - bring
   her back to me."

111
"You can't die... You
 must live... I'll make it
 up to you for all these 
 years... I love you...
    I love you - -"

112
After two years.

113
"Bo-Bo says Jean has
 been out for a week...
 Someday I know he
 will come back to me."

114
"Christ said, 'Thy faith
 hath saved thee - go 
      in peace'."

115
"Any news of him?"
