Street Angel

1
Everywhere....in every
 town, in every street.... 
 we pass, unknowing, 
human souls made great 
by love and adversity.

2 
Naples..... 

  Under the smoking 
  menace of Vesuvius... 
  ...laughter-loving, care-
  less, sordid Naples. 

3
"Thief! Circus vagabond! 
 You stole my sausage!" 

4  
"She was the most
 musical drum in
 Italy!" 

5  
"As I feared .... your
 mother has a dangerous
 temperature. Get that 
 prescription at once." 

6
"It will cost about
 twenty lire." 

7 
"Si, si, Mama! I will
 be back soon with 
 the medicine." 

8
"Good....good evening!" 

9 
"Good....good evening!" 

10
"For robbery, while 
 soliciting on the
 streets...." 

11  
".....A year in the 
 workhouse!" 

12
"Coco! Salute the
 brave police!" 

13
"I see love coming to
 you, Angela." 

14
"Foolish Maria! Love 
 makes people unhappy. 
 Why should I seek
 trouble?" 

15
"Love will find you, 
 never fear! No
 woman escapes!" 

16
"You must come .... 
 ...quickly! A vagabond
 painter down the
 road is stealing the
 crowd from us!"

17
"Maria is telling my
 fortune....." 

18 
"I, too, can read the
 future! No supper 
 unless we hold these
 sheep outside!" 

19
"We were here first! 
 Get out....you and
 your mangy goat!" 

20
"Aha! What did I tell
 you? The lover is here!" 

21
"There's no other place 
 to ride." 

22
"But I've joined the 
 show!" 

23 
"What for?" 

24
"I want to paint you." 

25
"Bah! I don't like
 painters...I don't like 
 men! Stick to your
 goats!" 

26
"Let me drive. You go
 inside where it is
 warm." 

27
"Maria and Beppo are
 lovers .... always 
 kissing. They make
 me sick!" 

28 
"I shall never be such
 a fool, I promise!
 Love....pah!" 

29
"Love is like the measles. 
 When it comes, you
 cannot stop it." 

30
"Morning, noon and
 night you whistle and
 sing that song!" 

31
"You make it hard
 for me to paint you,
 Angela." 

32
"Always you wear a
 mask...to hide the
 soul that is in you." 

33
"You are a dreamer! 
 Paint me as I am!" 

34
"So! At last I am
 allowed to see the
 great masterpiece!" 

35
"She is lovely, Gino!" 

36
"But I am not like that!" 

37
"You are...to me." 

38
"I wish I could be..... 
 ...always." 

39
"Ten thousand devils! 
 Kiss him if you must,
 but make haste!" 

40
"Her ankle is broken!" 

41
"What can we do? She
 needs a good doctor!" 

42
"I will take her to one." 

44
"Goodbye, Masetto.
 Thank you.....for
 everything." 

45
"Where are we going?" 

46
"To Naples, of course!" 

47
"Must we, Gino? Must
 we go to Naples?" 

48
"Of course! There I can
 get commissions to
 paint...make money so
 we can be married!" 

49
"We poor painters must
 eat, Signor. What do
 you offer?" 

50
"A great bargain!
 Giacomo can make
 an Old Master of
 it! It will sell for
 thousands!" 

60
"Excuses.....always 
 excuses! I want my
 rent!" 

61
"..... Gino is selling
 the picture! Soon
 he will be back ....
 ... with much money!" 

62
"You turn up your nose
 at a girl like Lisetta....
 but she pays her rent!" 

63
"But the food, Gino... 
 ...where is it?" 

64
"This time I will go!" 

65 
"Dio! They have robbed
 you! How will you eat?
 How will you paint?" 

66
"I have seen a face 
 I should remember....
 but cannot place it." 

67
"It will come to me...
 ...in time." 

68
"It was more than a
 painting....it seemed
 alive and understand-
 ing, like a guardian
 angel...." 

69 
"Now that it is gone...
 ...I am afraid." 

70 
"So long as I have you,
 I can do it again! You
 are my inspiration!" 

71
"Perhaps...it wasn't
 her fault." 

72
"That kind have only
 themselves to blame." 

73
"You don't understand,
 Carissima...you are too
 pure at heart. Don't
 waste your thoughts 
 on such ugliness." 

74
"We are rich, Angela
 mia....and more to 
 come!" 

75
"Gino! You didn't rob
 a bank?" 

76
"I am to paint the great
 mural for the Teatro 
 San Carlo!" 

77
"Angela! Will you marry
 me tomorrow?" 

78
"They are tears of joy...
 life is going to be so
 wonderful!" 

79
"Wait...you don't under-
 stand. I can't leave 
 him this way!" 

80
"...He doesn't know
 about me...and he
 loves me...." 

81
"...If he knew I'd gone
 to prison, it would
 break his heart...he
 couldn't paint....." 

82
"Give me one hour...
 then I will go with 
 you." 

83
"I won't run away
 again...I swear it! " 

84
"Just one little hour....." 

85
"I want to shut our
 happiness in, Gino...
 ...all to ourselves." 

86
"Drink to the future,
 Angela!" 

87
"To fame and fortune..." 

88
"....And to tomorrow,
 Angela! Tomorrow 
 with you!" 

89
"To our love....our
 faith in each other....
 always!" 

90
"What a glorious world
 it is after all!" 

91
"Every great artist paints
 his wife. Will you sit
 for your portrait now,
 Signora?"

92
"Gino, the greatest
 painter in all Italy!"

93
"This is just the
 beginning! We are
 going to climb.....
 ...higher and higher!"

94
"It is time to say
 goodnight, Gino."

95
"Please...then tomorrow
 will come sooner."

96
"Life together...what
 happiness!"

97
"And the babies,
 Angela..."

98
"A girl....a little rabbit
 like you...." 

99
"...And a boy...a funny
 boy with big feet....
 like me!" 

100
"Kiss me goodnight,
 Angela! Tomorrow is
 such a long time off!" 

101
"I am happy...happy
 because of your good
 fortune...." 

102
"But it's our good
 fortune, Angela. You
 and I together.....
 always! " 

103
"Always, Gino...I will be
 with you...always!" 

104
"What's the use of
 mooning over that
 one? She's no better
 than I am!" 

105
"How can you be so
 happy...here?"

106
"Because....out in the
 world the one I love is
 doing great things!" 

107
"We have engaged
 another artist to paint
 the mural." 

108
"Oho! So this is where
 you've been all these
 months!" 

109
"A street angel... 
 ...like me!" 

110
"Another Old Master. 
 It was discovered
 about a year ago." 

111
"It is undoubtedly the
 Vianotti that disappeared 
 in the 18th century,
 Monsignor." 

112
"Come on down...
 ...with me!" 

113
"He was a failure....
 they dismissed him." 

114
"I've just left an old
 friend of yours." 

115
"You remember Angela?" 

116
"In prison...what for?" 

117
"For robbery, while
 soliciting on the
 streets!" 

118
"Why should I lie? Go
 to the prison and find
 out for yourself!" 

119
"He went away after
 you left...they say to
 the devil!" 

120
"So that's the way
 you paint now...on
 café tables!" 

121
"I will paint again!" 

122
"Once I painted a girl as
 I thought she was...." 

123
"...Now I'm going to
 paint women as they
 really are!" 

124
"I shall find a girl
 with the face of an
 angel....." 

125
"......And a soul as 
 black as hell!" 

126
"Look for her on the
 wharves...there are
 plenty to pick from
 there!" 

127
"To think that I painted
 you...." 

128
"....Like that!" 

129
"But I am like that 
 still..." 

130
"You must believe me,
 Gino! Look in my
 eyes!" 

131
"Forgive me!"
