Sally of the Sawdust

1 
Green Meadow, Con-
necticut, near the
suburban area of New
York.

2
The home of Judge
Foster, an austere
New Englander, rich in
acres but poor in cash -
Mrs. Foster and her
daughter

3
And then --

4
"I told you if you married
that circus man there
would be no place for you
in this house. You have
made your bed, now lie
in it."

5
In the far West,
five years later.

6
McGargle, a circus fakir,
who sometimes finds
it convenient to use the
name of Harkness.

7
"Since my husband
was taken, you have
been my only friend,
McGargle. Do what
is best for Sally."

8
"Perhaps my people
in Green Meadow
might help."

9
Using the name of Hark-
ness, McGargle writes
to the Fosters of their
daughter's death -

10
- but tells them
nothing of the
child.

11
The letter.

12
After years, in Western
  Pennsylvania.

13
We find Sally a strange,
whimsical creature,
part tomboy, part woman,
her only world the easy-
going circus.

14
"Let's go, Lucy."

15
Sally of the sawdust.

16
Elephants for playmates.

17
"Let's go."

18
Side-show spielers.

19
"Hey, Pop."

20
Working up applause
   for Pop.

21
"Step inside and see
the greatest show
on earth!"

22
"It's not a game of
chance - it's a game
of science and skill -
the old army game!"

23
"Your eye against 
     my hand."

24
"Under which shell
is the little pea?"

25
McGargle, whom Sally
  has always wor-
shipped as her real
father, suddenly realizes
a father's responsibility.

26
"You're growing up, Sally."

27
"We want our money
       back."

28
A circus call for help
   - "Hey Rube!"

29
"This money is
  my Pop's."

30
"Here's your money,
        Pop."

31
Thinking to investigate
her family in Green
Meadow, and if they prove
the right sort, restore Sally
to them.

32
  The influx of city
  rich into country
homes has put Green
Meadow on the map, and
made the fortune of the
Fosters.

33
Wealth and luxury fail
 to erase from the
mother's heart the
memory of that only
daughter, driven from
home on account of her
marriage.

34
The stranding of the
circus in Connecticut
has given McGargle a
new idea in his investi-
gation of Sally's family -

35
- so he spent his last
cent on a telegram.

36
"I've been keeping a
quarter for a long
while Pop, so we'll
eat and walk."

37
"Sandwiches."

38
"Mustard?"

39
"Hey, Pop."

40
"- - for the great
Professor McGargle
- he's very particular!"

41
Footsore, they take
a desperate chance.

42
Rough going -

43
- into smooth meadows.

44
"Daughter, we have
      arrived!"

45
"Give her a little coal in 
about fifteen minutes, 
and you can dry your-
selves while I'm away
at breakfast."

46
Shivering needs - -
desperate remedies!

47
Mr. Lennox, whose
friendship has been
largely responsible for
the Fosters' good
fortune.

48
Peyton Lennox, upon
  whom is centred
all his father's family
pride.

49
"POP - - POP!"

50
"SALLY!"

51
"Sally, you are
  growing up!"

52
The carnival is held
   on the Lennox
property, adjoining
their home.

53
The girl - the father's
        choice. 

54
"Can you inform me
where I can locate
the manager?"

55
After java -

56
"No card games,
 no gambling."

57
Sally goes a-walking.

58
The pilgrimage.

59
"By the way, do you
know a Henry C.
Foster?"

60
"Yes, sir. He's a judge -
one of the richest men
in town - don't like
show people, though!"

61
"That's Judge Foster."

62
"Got a face that
looks like it wore
out four bodies."

63
"I live right up here."

64
"Yes? That's my house
    over there."

65
A rich young man -
a homeless waif -
the eternal bond of
youth.

66
"Do you know that
boy of yours has lost
his head over that
show girl?"

67
So Judge Foster
 begins persecuting
the daughter of their
beloved only child.

68
"Keep your eye on
this McGargle and
his daughter. They
are menace to the
community."

69
"That's Judge Foster's
        place."

70
"I don't want to hear
anything from you.
Get off the grounds!"

71
McGargle quiets his
conscience with
the thought that
Sally would be hap-
pier in ignorance
of her parentage.

72
"What did you go
there for, Pop?"

73
On the old job again
 - - determined to
keep the secret and
hold Sally for himself.

74
The lonely Mrs.
   Foster -

75
Young Lennox - - a
  committee member

76
Sally is engaged to
dance at the Foster
home, which has been
loaned to the committee
for a charity function.

77
"Hey, Pop!"

78
For the first time Mc-
Gargle sees Sally as
more than a loving
daughter - as a money
getter, a business asset.

79
As the carnival nears
     its close - 

80
"Come to your senses!
You're making a show
of yourself over this
girl - the daughter of
that faking scoundrel!"

81
"Don't you say
anything about
my Pop!"

82
"If we're not good
enough for you,
you're not good
enough for us!"

83
"Now that you've
made so much fuss,
if she'll have me, I'll
marry her!"

84
Determined to save his
friend from the scandal
of Peyton marrying "this
guttersnipe nobody of the
circus".

85
"They said I wasn't 
     any good."

86
Indignation tempts
McGargle to reveal
the secret - 

87
"They said you weren't
any good."

88
"I'll get them both,
       Judge."

89
- but again he
    weakens.

90
The ball at the Foster
         home.

91
Sally, anxious to see
    the inside of the
great house - 

92
Never dreaming it
   was, by right,
her own.

93
"Entertainers use the
side entrance, please."

94
Sally, slightly frightened,
         but - - 

95
The grandmother, 
strangely drawn
to the waif.

96
Peyton's scheme to
   show that Sally 
could hold her own
with any of them.

97
Sally in her splendor -

98
"Telegram for the lady."

99
"Please don't talk
now, it'll only bring
on another scene."

100
"The carnival is over
to-morrow, and after
that I'll see you
again, I promise."

101
And so Sally -

102
"Excuse me - I just
wanted to sit in a
chair and look at
the room."

103
"I enjoyed your dancing
so much. You know -
- I always liked to 
dance -"

104
"- but the Judge was
     so austere."

105
"I don't believe that talk,
Henry. I believe she is a
good girl, no matter
what anyone says."

106
McGargle introduces
 the natives to
the mysteries of
three card Monte.

107
The friendly constable.

108
The unfriendly
  constable.

109
Mr. Lennox invents
urgent business to
send his son away.

110
"Don't Pop, please -
you promised me
you wouldn't do this
again."

111
"McGargle, you are
   under arrest."

112
To save Pop, she
takes the cards,
the evidence.

113
"You are under arrest
  as an accomplice."

114
"Pop - they've got me!"

115
"Wait 'til my Pop
gets you - - he'll
knock your block
off!"

116
"Please don't put my
name down - that's
a terrible disgrace."

117
"We've got the girl."

118
McGargle stumbles upon
      a most carefully
guarded cache.

119
"It's that Revenuer."

120
Morning.

121
Not knowing that young
      Lennox had been sent
away, Sally fears everyone
has deserted her through
her disgrace.

122
"That's McGargle of
the carnival. He's
all right."

123
"They arrested your
girl - they're going
to send her up."

124
"When Professor Mc-
Gargle comes, tell
him where I am, 
please."

125
"You know too much
about us. You're going
with the truck to
Albany tonight."

126
"Judge Foster is about
    to open Court."

127
Expecting every moment
   that the next would
bring him - -

128
"You saw the money
      passed?"

129
"You identify this girl
   as an accomplice?"

130
"She helped him to
escape, Your Honor.
We found the cards
on her."

131
"You believe this
girl's father to be
an absolutely im-
proper guardian
for her?"

132
"McGargle is a worthless
   crook, Your Honor."

133
McGargle decides to
    give himself up, 
pay the penalty, and
take Sally away for-
ever.

134
"What is your age?"

135
      If the little grand-
          mother only knew
that the Judge was tortur-
ing their baby's baby.

136
"Your father's name?"

137
"Professor Eustace 
     McGargle."

138
"Your mother's name?"

139
"Pop - he's the only
mother I've ever had."

140
"Don't trifle with this
   Court. Answer me!"

141
"I said he's the only
mother I've ever had."

142
"I'll tell everybody
he's a noble, honorable
gentleman!"

143
The wrong turn.

144
"When my Pop gets 
back, he's gonna lay
you all flat!"

145
"I am going to send you to
a home for wayward girls,
where you will be away
from your evil associates."

146
"Please wait until
Professor McGargle
comes back, and
he'll fix everything."

147
"Won't somebody please
find Professor McGargle?"

148
"Professor McGargle of
the carnival. Tell him
to hurry, they've got
me."

149
"POP - POP!"

150
"I'd ha' been here
sooner, but I was
thrown by a Ford."

151
"Her mother was
Mary Foster - -
your daughter, 
Judge."

152
"You are accused
  of gambling."

153
"It was not gambling,
Your Honor! It was a
game of science and
skill - - the old army
game!"

154
So finally - - "Case
     Dismissed".

155
The old army game!
