Show Boat

[part-talkie]

1   
The mighty Mississippi
 - deep and moody.

2
 Herald of summer -
  the whistle of the 
Show Boat just around
     the bend.

3
   The Cotton Palace -
  bringing to the river
 folk the glorious world
of unreality - the theatre.

4
"Hurry! We're coming 
   into Westport!"

5
"Maggie Hawks! I'm going 
  to paddle you good!"

6
"Papa, mother's going
 to paddle me, but I
     don't care."

7
"Please don't take my 
   baby - please!"

8
"Maggie Hawks! What 
are you up to now?"

9
"Give her back her 
child, you skunk!"

10
"I forgot where I wuz."

11
"Julie - - !"

12
"Second act - !"

13
"Julie - I wish you
   was my mama!"

14
"Julie Dozier, I'm not
  going to have my 
 daughter corrupted
   by a show-boat
 trollop like you!"

15
"You've got to go!"

16
"Hell's fire, Julie! You're
  causing a stage wait!
       Come on!"

17
"You're fired!"

18
"Yes, and I'll fire the 
 next one if he tries 
  to make love to 
      Maggie!"

19
"I wired for a new 
 leading man and 
  there he is."

20
"He's no actor - he's
    a gentleman!"

21
"He's got a crack in his 
 shoe. He's an actor!"

22
"Bring him on board."

23
"What a Romeo you'll
       make!"

24
"How about - Hamlet?"

25
"Hawks! Bring that
 young man aboard!"

26
"Something tells me 
   I won't do."

27
"My daughter - our
leading lady - she
  plays Juliet."

28
"Mr. Gaylord Ravenal -
our new leading man."

29
"Save that for your
      acting."

30
"Your salary will be
 fifteen dollars a 
 week - - if you last
      a week!"

31
"Gambler - ?"

32
"Gentleman gambler."

33
"I'll take a chance -
   if you will!"

34
"Good! I'll learn ye!"

35
"Beautiful!"

36
"Yes, the river at night
     is beautiful."

37
"How is the part 
    coming?"

38
"Would you mind going
 through our scenes
     together?"

39
"From the moment mine 
 eyes beheld you, I loved 
          you."

40
"In some olden time,
you were a princess,
and I - your devoted 
      lover."

41
"Your daughter is 
  helping me to
 become familiar
  with my part."

42
"I'll help you become
  familiar with an 
     audience!"

43
The course of human 
 lives may be changed 
in a day, but the river 
 flows on - relentless,
       eternal.

44
"Parthy, here's the 
      doctor."

45
"Everybody ashore!
The river is rising!"

46
"It's a girl!"

47
"Another leading lady!"

48
"Drowned!"

49
"Don't mind Mother."

50
"Where's Father?"

51
"Sleeping - after the 
       storm."

52
"You'll write....?"

53
"Once a month -
   regular."

54
"Come back when the 
 money's gone, but 
    come alone."

55
"I'll never come back!"

56
CHICAGO

57
The whirlpools 
  of chance.

58
"There's Gaylord Ravenal 
     and his wife."

59
"That's the notorious
   Hetty Chilson."

60
"Just how well do you 
 know this Chilson 
       woman?"

61
"Run over to Goldsmith's
 and get me five hundred 
        on this."

62
"How can he borrow five 
 hundred on a ten dollar 
         cane?"

63
"That cane is good for
 a thousand dollars 
 anywhere he is known.
 It's his pledge of honor
     - his bond."

64
"Play 'I Got Shoes',
 Mama, and I'll go
 to bed - this time
     for sure!"

65
"Where's your cane?"

66
"But the money Mother
gave us - that can't be 
      all gone?"

67
"Go on, say it! Your
 mother was right -"

68
"- say it! I'm just
 a gambler and I'm
 dragging you down!"

69
"I don't mind, dear.
I'm just thinking of 
        Kim."

70
"This is your new home.
 We brought you here 
 last night while you 
     were asleep."

71
"It's ugly - I don't 
      like it."

72
"Come, Nola! We're leaving
this rat's nest, tonight!"

73
"I bought back all 
 your 'pretties'!"

74
"Where are we going -
 back to the Sherman 
       House?"

75
"We'll be careful this
time, won't we, dear?
I don't mind, but we 
must think of Kim."

76
"This is 'White Hat'
speaking - I've got a
bargain for you in a
  trotting horse."

77
"Five thousand dollars."

78
"This horse will make 
 a fortune for you in 
      six months."

79
"But, Gay - you promised
    we'd be careful."

80
"Darling, in six months
 we'll be wealthy, and
 I'll quit gambling 
 forever. I promise."

81
"Don't run me into 
    the fence!"

82
"I lost the race - but
 I still have the colt."

83
"That colt will never 
 race again. His leg 
      is broken."
