Why Worry?

1  
Crestshire Country Club -
 Aristocratic, exclusive
 and expensive. Wealthy
  society idlers with
absolutely nothing to do -
  come here to do it.

2
"Hello, Doctor. Have you
seen Harold Van Pelham
    this afternoon?"

3
"Why, that young idler is
as well as I am. He's a 
pest about his health. Some
doctor has probably sent
him away to get rid of him."

4
Off for Paradiso.
    Mr. Van Pelham has
taken so many pills he
 rattles when he walks.

5
His Nurse -
   A loyal friend of long
standing. She is putting
   her heart and soul
in her work - especially
        her heart.

6
Mr. Pipps, the faithful valet.
    Somebody has told
Van Pelham that a lemon
 would cure seasickness.

7
"Yes indeed. I have a great
doctor. He says I have
everything but the smallpox."

8
"Well, don't worry. I've 
        got that."

9
Plowing a peaceful sea -
    and headed for the
distant island of Paradiso
    where adventures
undreamed of awaited him.

10
Fourteen lazy days and
    moonlit nights
brought them close to the 
   dreamy shores of
       Paradiso.

11
"See if I've got a fever.
   I'm hot all over."

12
Paradiso - A drowsy city
   in a dreamy land.
Rip Van Winkle's twenty 
  year sleep would be
considered a nap down
         here.

13
Jim Blake -
  An American renegade, who,
 to further his own financial
interests, has lashed the riffraff
  of the Republic into an out-
law force - restless and eager to
  overthrow the government.

14
The Union Soldiers -
  In power so long the
moths are using their
gun barrels for summer 
        homes.

15
Blake's first lieutenant
  is called Herculeo
the Mighty. He named
       himself.

16
"This letter came over a
month ago. We'll make
it hot - red hot - for this
fellow when he shows up."

17
Friday the Thirteenth saw
   three unsuspecting
passengers set ashore at
       Paradiso.

18
"Here's to the downfall 
   of the Republic!"

19
"Changeable weather
  you have here."

20
"Show no mercy!
  Spare nobody!"

21
"You run along to the hotel.
I want to stroll around a
bit. Everything is so calm 
      and peaceful."

22
"I say, my good man. I've
been seriously injured! Can
you direct me to the hotel?"

23
"HEY! Can anybody tell me
   where the hotel is?"

24
"No you don't! You've
got to tell me where
   the hotel is."

25
"Certainly, sir. I shall do
more than direct you. I shall
 be honored to give you a
     military escort."

26
"Poner el perro en carcel,
     y tenerle allí!"

[dissolves to]

"Put the dog in jail, and
     keep him there!"

27
"You must drop over to 
the hotel and have lunch 
        with me."

28
"Our men have finally
captured Colosso, that
wild hermit from the
mountains who almost
 wrecked our army."

29
"If he hadn't been half 
crazy with a terrible 
toothache, we never 
would have captured 
        him."

30
"Another prisoner!"

31
"Come, we'll escape."

32
"I'm in great trouble! Won't
you give me some clothes -
 anything for a disguise."

33
"Well, isn't that nice. So
   you're sick, too - -"

34
"Just a minute, I need more 
          ballast."

35
"Pipps, I'm astonished.
Haven't I always told you
to keep yourself neat and 
          tidy."

36
"They're havin' a revolution, 
sir! A most terrible revolution, 
            sir!"

37
"Well, tell them they'll have to 
stop it immediately. I came 
down here for a rest."

38
"You boys will have to stop 
this fighting. It's bad for 
         my heart."

39
"Always look before you 
shoot. One can't be too 
careful with firearms."

40
"Well, that's done. Now
we've just time to dress 
      for dinner."

41
"Pardon me, have you seen 
my nurse? She'll be anxious 
   about my condition."

42
"My nurse - girl - young lady
  - hat - dress - shoes -
         dark hair."

43
"Find her - get her - bring 
  her to me - understand?"

44
"I'm amazed at you! Playing
around this way in boy's 
clothes when you should be 
looking after my health."

45
"Pills - pills - pills! I'm
  sick and tired of your
      silly pills - -"

46
"My, you have beautiful 
         eyes!"

47
"Isn't she wonderful?"

48
"She?"

49
"Just look, he's half
      killed me."

50
"Never mind - I found 
her myself - Dismiss 
     the ladies."

51
"I can't tell you how grateful
    I am, Mr. Van Pelham."

52
"I can't understand. Isn't it
   strange how I wanted to
     fight the moment he
        touched you?"

53
"You know, now that I 
think of it, I really
enjoyed protecting you."

54
"It's time for your pill,
    Mr. Van Pelham."

55
"Don't be afraid. I just had
to teach these boys a lesson."

56
"Your friend - very sick -
give him pill every two
  minutes - Make him
        take it."

57
"What's the matter with 
      me, anyway?"

58
"WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL
   ME I LOVE YOU?"

59
"I never want to see another 
  pill as long as I live!"

60
       A year passed - It's an old
           established habit.
                   __

       Was it Shakespeare or Will
         Rogers who once said -

  "A man knoweth not the full joy of
responsibility until it leapeth upon him."

61
"It's a boy!"
