0:01:05:-Make it snappy.|-Where's the rest of this story?
0:01:10:City desk? Just a moment.
0:01:13:If anybody asks,|I'm at the courthouse.
0:01:23:-HeIIo, HiIdy.|-Hi, Skinny.
0:01:25:HeIIo, Ruth, Maisie.
0:01:28:-Is the Iord of the universe in?|-Yes, in a bad humour.
0:01:31:Somebody stoIe|the crown jeweIs.
0:01:33:-ShaII we announce you?|-I'II bIow my own horn.
0:01:36:Bruce, wait.|I'II be back in ten.
0:01:39:Ten minutes is a Iong time|to be away from you.
0:01:43:What did you say?
0:01:49:WeII, go ahead.
0:01:50:Even ten minutes is a Iong time|to be away from you.
0:01:53:I Iike it. That's why I asked|you to say it again.
0:01:57:I Iike being spoiIed. The man|I'm going to see did very IittIe of it.
0:02:01:I'd Iike to spoiI him.|Want me to go with you?
0:02:04:-I can handIe it.|-If it gets rough, I'm here.
0:02:06:I'II come running, partner.

0:02:13:HeIIo, HiIdy, how have you been?
0:02:17:Beatrice, how's|''Advice to the LoveIorn''?
0:02:19:-Fine. My cat had kittens again.|-Your fauIt.
0:02:23:GIad to see you. Hi, Jim.
0:02:25:MiIdred, you stiII around?
0:02:29:A IittIe more around the chin, boss.
0:02:31:-What do you want?|-Your ex-wife is here.
0:02:40:Hi, Louie.|How's the sIot-machine king?
0:02:43:I ain't doing that no more.|I'm retired. Know what I mean?
0:02:49:The governor didn't sign|that reprieve.
0:02:52:Tomorrow, EarI WiIIiams dies|and makes a sucker out of us.
0:02:56:What are you gonna do?
0:02:58:-Phone the governor.|-I can't.
0:03:00:-Why not?|-He's out fishing.
0:03:02:-How many pIaces to fish are there?|-Two. AtIantic and Pacific.
0:03:05:That simpIifies it.
0:03:07:-Get him.|-And say what?
0:03:08:Quiet, Duffy. He's thinking.
0:03:11:If he reprieves WiIIiams,|we'II support him for senator.
0:03:14:TeII him the Morning Post|wiII back him.
0:03:18:We're a democratic paper.
0:03:20:After we get the reprieve,|we'II be democratic again.
0:03:23:Get going. The Morning Post|expects every editor to do his duty.
0:03:28:You too, Louie.|Get out of here.
0:03:35:WaIter, I see you're stiII at it.
0:03:37:First time I cheated a governor.|What can I do for you?
0:03:40:WouId you mind if I sat down?
0:03:42:There's a Iamp burning in the|window for you. Here.
0:03:45:I jumped out of that window|a Iong time ago, WaIter.
0:03:51:May I have one of those?
0:03:58:And a match?
0:04:05:-How Iong is it?|-How Iong is what?
0:04:09:You know what.
0:04:10:How Iong is it since|we've seen each other?
0:04:13:WeII, Iet's see.
0:04:15:I spent six weeks in Reno,|then Bermuda. About four months.
0:04:19:Seems Iike yesterday.
0:04:21:Maybe it was yesterday, HiIdy.|Been seeing me in your dreams?
0:04:25:Mama doesn't dream about you.|You wouIdn't know her now.
0:04:29:Yes, I wouId.|I'd know you anytime.
0:04:33:You're repeating yourseIf.|You said that when you proposed.
0:04:36:You stiII remember it.
0:04:37:If I didn't remember it,|I wouIdn't have divorced you.
0:04:40:I sort of wish you hadn't.
0:04:44:It makes a feIIow Iose faith. It gives|him a feeIing he wasn't wanted.
0:04:49:That's what divorces are for.
0:04:51:Nonsense, you've got an oId-fashioned|idea divorces Iast forever.
0:04:54:''TiII death do us part.''|Divorce doesn't mean anything.
0:04:58:Just a few words mumbIed by a judge.
0:05:00:We've got something|nothing can change.
0:05:04:-I suppose you're right, in a way.|-Sure.
0:05:07:-I am fond of you, you know.|-ThattagirI!
0:05:10:I often wish you weren't|such a stinker.
0:05:13:You must meet my mother.|She'd Iike that.
0:05:16:Why'd you promise not to fight|the divorce and then gum up the works?
0:05:21:I meant to Iet you go, but...
0:05:23:...you never miss the water|tiII the weII runs dry.
0:05:25:A big Iummox Iike you,|hiring an airpIane to write:
0:05:28:'' HiIdy, don't be hasty.|Remember my dimpIe. WaIter.''
0:05:32:It deIayed our divorce|whiIe the judge watched it.
0:05:35:I've stiII got the dimpIe,|and in the same pIace.
0:05:39:I acted Iike a husband who didn't|want his home broken.
0:05:42:-What home?|-Remember the home I promised you?
0:05:45:Sure I do. That was the one we were|to have right after the honeymoon.
0:05:50:Was it my fauIt? Did I know that|coaI mine wouId have a cave-in?
0:05:54:I intended to be with you|on our honeymoon.
0:05:57:Instead of two weeks in AtIantic City|with my bridegroom...
0:06:00:...I spent two weeks in a mine|with John Kruptzky.
0:06:04:You deny it?
0:06:05:We beat the whoIe country|on that story!
0:06:07:That isn't what I got married for!
0:06:11:Oh, what is the good?|Look, WaIter.
0:06:13:I came to teII you to stop|phoning me a dozen times a day...
0:06:16:...sending me 20 teIegrams--
0:06:18:-I write a beautifuI teIegram.|-Are you gonna Iisten?
0:06:22:What's the use of fighting?|I'II teII you what you do.
0:06:25:Come back to work on the paper,|and if we can't get aIong...
0:06:28:...we'II get married again.
0:06:30:-What?|-I haven't any hard feeIings.
0:06:33:WaIter, you're wonderfuI,|in a Ioathsome sort of way.
0:06:36:-Be quiet so I can say what I have to.|-TeII me over Iunch.
0:06:40:I have a Iunch date.
0:06:41:-Break it.|-I can't.
0:06:43:Hands off!|Are you pIaying osteopath?
0:06:46:You are no Ionger my husband|and no Ionger my boss.
0:06:51:And you won't be my boss.
0:06:52:-What does that mean?|-Just what I say.
0:06:54:You're not coming back to work?
0:06:56:You're right for|the first time today.
0:06:59:-Got a better offer?|-You bet.
0:07:01:Go on, work for somebody eIse!|That's the gratitude I get.
0:07:05:Five years ago, you were a coIIege girI.|I took a doII-faced hick!
0:07:09:You wouIdn't have|if I wasn't doII-faced.
0:07:12:It was a noveIty to have a face|to Iook at without shuddering.
0:07:15:I made you a great reporter.|You won't be as good on another paper.
0:07:18:We're a team.|The paper needs both of us!
0:07:23:-AII right, go ahead.|-Listen, WaIter, pIease.
0:07:26:The paper's gonna have to get aIong|without me. So wiII you.
0:07:29:It didn't work out.
0:07:30:It wouId have if you'd been|satisfied as editor and reporter.
0:07:34:But you had to marry me.
0:07:37:I wasn't satisfied?|I suppose I proposed to you!
0:07:40:PracticaIIy!|Making eyes at me untiI I broke down.
0:07:43:''Oh, WaIter!''|I was tight when I proposed to you.
0:07:46:If you'd been a gentIeman,|you'd have forgotten it.
0:07:49:You used to pitch better than that.|HeIIo. What?
0:07:54:Sweeney? What can I do for you?
0:07:56:What?|I'm not Sweeney. I'm Duffy.
0:07:59:You can't do that.|Not today, of aII days!
0:08:02:What's the matter with you?|Are you Ioony?
0:08:05:Now, Iisten, Sweeney.|This is no time--
0:08:09:AII right, I suppose so.|If you have to, you have to.
0:08:14:-He had to.|-Everything happens to me.
0:08:17:365 days in a year,|and this has to be the day.
0:08:22:He might as weII be.|He picks today to have a baby!
0:08:26:Not on purpose?
0:08:27:He's supposed to cover the|EarI WiIIiams case, and where is he?
0:08:31:WaIking around a hospitaI.|Is there no honour?
0:08:34:Haven't you got anybody eIse?
0:08:36:Nobody eIse on the paper can write.|This'II break me. UnIess--
0:08:43:-You can heIp me.|-Not a chance.
0:08:45:-Get out, Duffy!|-Save your breath.
0:08:48:-This'II bring us together again.|-That's what I'm afraid of.
0:08:52:This is bigger than anything.|Do it for the paper.
0:08:56:If not for Iove, how about money?|I'II raise you $25 a week.
0:09:00:Listen to me, you baboon--
0:09:02:-I'II make it $35 and not a cent more.|-Listen!
0:09:05:-How much wiII the other paper pay?|-There's no other paper.
0:09:08:The raise is off.|You get your oId saIary.
0:09:11:Trying to bIackjack me.
0:09:13:-I'm busy.|-Look at it.
0:09:15:Do you know what it is?|It's an engagement ring.
0:09:24:I tried to teII you right away,|but you wouId start reminiscing.
0:09:29:I'm getting married and as far away|from newspapers as I can get.
0:09:37:-You can get married, you can't quit.|-No? Why not?
0:09:40:I know what it wouId do.
0:09:42:-What?|-It wouId kiII you.
0:09:44:-You can't seII me that.|-You're a newspaperman.
0:09:48:I wanna go where I can be a woman.
0:09:50:-You mean a traitor.|-Traitor to what?
0:09:53:To journaIism.|You're a journaIist!
0:09:55:A journaIist?|What does that mean?
0:09:57:Peeking through keyhoIes,|chasing fire engines...
0:10:00:...waking peopIe up|to ask them questions...
0:10:03:...steaIing pictures off oId Iadies?|I know about reporters.
0:10:06:Buttinskies running around|with no money, and why?
0:10:09:So a miIIion peopIe wiII know|what's going on. Why, I--
0:10:13:What's the use?
0:10:16:You wouIdn't know|what it means...
0:10:18:...to want to be respectabIe and|Iive a haIfway normaI Iife.
0:10:23:The point is, I'm through.
0:10:27:-Where did you meet this man?|-Bermuda.
0:10:31:He's not what you'd caII rich.|He makes $5000 a year.
0:10:35:-What's his Iine?|-He's in the insurance business.
0:10:38:-Insurance business?|-That's a good, honest business, right?
0:10:41:Sure, it's honest.|It's aIso adventurous.
0:10:44:I can't picture you|being surrounded by poIicies--
0:10:47:I can, and I Iike it, what's more.
0:10:50:He forgets the office|when he's with me.
0:10:53:He doesn't treat me Iike an|errand boy, but Iike a woman.
0:10:56:How did I treat you?|Like a water buffaIo?
0:10:59:I don't know from buffaIoes.|I know about him.
0:11:02:He's kind, sweet|and considerate.
0:11:04:He wants a home and chiIdren.
0:11:07:Sounds Iike a guy I shouId marry.|His name?
0:11:10:BaIdwin. Bruce BaIdwin.
0:11:12:I knew a BaIdwin once, a horse thief.|CouIdn't be the same feIIa, couId it?
0:11:16:You're not taIking about the man|I'm marrying tomorrow.
0:11:20:Tomorrow? As soon as that?
0:11:27:At Iast, I got out what|I came up here to teII you.
0:11:32:Guess there isn't any more|to the story.
0:11:35:So Iong, WaIter.
0:11:36:So Iong, HiIdy.
0:11:38:Better Iuck next time.
0:11:46:WeII, you kind of took|the wind out of my saiI.
0:11:49:I just want to wish you|everything I couIdn't give you.
0:11:55:This other feIIow. I'm sorry|I didn't get a chance to see him.
0:11:59:I'm particuIar about|whom my wife marries.
0:12:03:Where is he?
0:12:04:He's right on the job,|waiting for me out there.
0:12:07:Do you mind if I meet him?
0:12:09:-It wouIdn't do any good.|-You're not afraid?
0:12:12:Of course not.
0:12:13:Let's see this paragon.|Is he as good as you say?
0:12:18:-What does he want with you?|-You got me.
0:12:21:Back in an hour, MiIdred.
0:12:23:I am sorry.|I suppose Bruce-- What's his name?
0:12:26:-I suppose he opens doors for you?|-And with a Iady, he takes his hat off.
0:12:30:I am sorry.
0:12:31:When he waIks with a Iady,|he waits for her.
0:12:34:In that case....
0:12:41:I can see my wife picked out|the right husband for herseIf.
0:12:45:There must be a mistake.|I'm aIready married.
0:12:51:You shouId have toId me.|CongratuIations again.
0:12:55:-No, my name--|-Mr. Burns.
0:12:56:I'm busy.|What did you say, Mr. BaIdwin?
0:12:59:-Mr. Burns.|-My name is--
0:13:01:I'm busy with Mr. BaIdwin.|I didn't hear you.
0:13:04:-My name is--|-Mr. Burns--
0:13:06:-What is it?|-I'm Bruce BaIdwin.
0:13:08:Can't you see I'm--?|You're Bruce BaIdwin!
0:13:10:Who is he?|Who are you?
0:13:12:My name's Pete Davis.
0:13:14:Mr. Davis, is this|any concern of yours?
0:13:16:From now on, keep your nose|out of my affairs.
0:13:19:Don't Iet it happen again.
0:13:21:I'm terribIy sorry about this mistake.|This is indeed a pIeasure.
0:13:25:That's wrong, isn't it? Bruce--|Do you mind if I caII you Bruce?
0:13:29:-We're aImost reIated.|-No, not at aII.
0:13:32:You see, my wife--|That is, your wife.
0:13:35:HiIdy, you Ied me to expect you|were marrying a much oIder man.
0:13:38:What did I say?
0:13:40:Don't worry. I reaIize|you didn't mean oId in years.
0:13:45:-You aIways carry an umbreIIa?|-It Iooked cIoudy.
0:13:48:That's right.|Rubbers too, I hope.
0:13:51:Thattaboy!|A man ought to be prepared.
0:13:53:We'd better run aIong.
0:13:55:-We'd better go.|-Where?
0:13:57:To Iunch.|Didn't you teII him?
0:13:59:No, she didn't.
0:14:00:I guess she just wanted|to surprise you, Bruce.
0:14:04:After you, HiIdy.
0:14:05:You're wasting your time.
0:14:07:No, I'm gIad to do it.
0:14:16:-None other. How are things?|-Can't compIain.
0:14:19:I can. I'm hungry.|A roast beef sandwich...
0:14:21:-Sorry.|-...on white bread.
0:14:23:Over there, Bruce.
0:14:24:-And you, HiIdy?|-I'II have the same.
0:14:26:-You, sir?|-That's aII right for me.
0:14:29:Bring some mustard too, Gus.
0:14:34:So you two are gonna get married?
0:14:36:-How does it feeI, Bruce?|-AwfuI good.
0:14:39:-You're getting a great girI.|-I reaIize that.
0:14:43:Things have been different|since I met HiIdy.
0:14:45:I've never met anyone Iike her.
0:14:47:Everybody eIse I've known...
0:14:49:...you couId teII ahead of time|what they'd say or do.
0:14:53:But HiIdy's not Iike that.|You can't teII that about her.
0:14:58:You're getting a great|newspaperman too.
0:15:01:No orchids, WaIter.
0:15:02:One of the best I ever knew.|Sorry to see her go.
0:15:06:-I'd Iike to beIieve you.|-I mean it.
0:15:09:-If you ever want to come back--|-Which I won't.
0:15:12:In spite of it aII,|there's onIy one man I'd work for.
0:15:16:I'd kiII you if you|worked for anybody eIse.
0:15:18:-Hear that? That's my dipIoma.|-It must be quite a business....
0:15:22:-Are you sure you wanna quit?|-What do you mean?
0:15:26:If there is any doubt|or if there's anything--
0:15:29:No, this is your chance to have|a home and to be a human being.
0:15:33:I'II make you take that chance.
0:15:35:CertainIy.|Why, I wouIdn't Iet her stay.
0:15:38:She deserves aII this happiness.|AII the things I couIdn't give her.
0:15:42:-AII she ever wanted was a home.|-I'II certainIy try.
0:15:46:I know you wiII.
0:15:48:-Where wiII you Iive?|-AIbany.
0:15:49:-Got a famiIy up there?|-Just my mother.
0:15:52:Your mother.|You'II Iive with her?
0:15:55:Just for the first year.
0:15:57:That wiII be nice.
0:15:58:Yes, a home with Mother,|in AIbany too.
0:16:03:Nice IittIe town.|It's the state capitaI.
0:16:06:I know. We were there once.
0:16:12:Remember the night|you brought the governor to the hoteI?
0:16:15:You see, I was in taking a bath.|WeII, I came waIking out without--
0:16:22:She didn't know I was in town.
0:16:24:Bruce, how is business up there?|Any better?
0:16:27:AIbany's a good insurance town.
0:16:29:PeopIe take it out|pretty earIy in Iife.
0:16:32:-I can see why they wouId.|-Statistics show that most--
0:16:35:I've got a feeIing I ought to|have taken out a IittIe insurance.
0:16:39:That reaIIy doesn't matter|now that HiIdy and I have...
0:16:42:...weII, you know, we've--|Does it?
0:16:45:What do you think?
0:16:46:It might have been a good idea|if I had taken out insurance.
0:16:49:I feeI that way.
0:16:51:I'm in one business|that reaIIy heIps peopIe.
0:16:54:Of course, we don't heIp you much|whiIe you're aIive, but afterward.
0:16:58:-That's what counts.|-Sure.
0:17:00:-I don't get it.|-Nice going.
0:17:04:Sorry, Gus.|My foot sIipped.
0:17:06:That's aII right.|What wouId you Iike to drink?
0:17:10:-ShaII I put rum in the coffee?|-Sure.
0:17:12:Me too, Gus, pIease.
0:17:13:-Not for me.|-Go on, Bruce.
0:17:15:I have a Iot to do. I have to|buy the tickets, check the baggage....
0:17:19:Do it tomorrow.
0:17:20:We're Ieaving today at 4:00,|taking the sIeeper for AIbany.
0:17:26:Oh, you're Ieaving today at 4:00?
0:17:29:-That's onIy two hours.|-That's not much time.
0:17:31:I've got a Iot to do.
0:17:33:Isn't that siIIy?|AII down over my front.
0:17:36:-That's nothing new. Here.|-I'II get Gus.
0:17:39:Do something|about this, wiII you?
0:17:42:CaII me to the phone when|I sit down.
0:17:45:Thanks, Gus, that's fine.
0:17:47:I'm terribIy sorry about that.|That was siIIy.
0:17:50:Let me get that straight.|I must have misunderstood you.
0:17:54:You're taking the sIeeper today,|then marrying tomorrow?
0:17:57:-WeII, it's not Iike that.|-What is it Iike?
0:18:00:Poor WaIter.|He'II toss and turn aII night.
0:18:02:Better teII him Mother's coming too.
0:18:05:-Your mother kicked the bucket--|-No, my mother.
0:18:08:Your mother?|That reIieves my mind.
0:18:11:It was crueI to Iet you suffer so.
0:18:13:Isn't WaIter sweet?|AIways wanting to protect me.
0:18:15:I wasn't much of a husband,|but you can count on me.
0:18:19:I don't think she'II need you much.|I aim to do the protecting.
0:18:23:Mr. Burns, teIephone.
0:18:31:He's not such a bad guy.
0:18:33:No, he shouId make|some girI reaI happy.
0:18:38:He's not the man for you,|I can see that.
0:18:41:But I Iike him.|He's got charm.
0:18:43:He comes by it naturaIIy.|His grandfather was a snake.
0:18:48:HeIIo? Duffy, Iisten.
0:18:50:Any way we can stop the 4:00 train|to AIbany?
0:18:53:-We might dynamite it.|-CouId we?
0:18:56:Maybe we couIdn't.|AII right, get this.
0:18:59:Send Sweeney out of town on|two weeks' vacation right away.
0:19:03:Keep your shirt on.|HiIdy's coming back.
0:19:06:She doesn't know it,|but she's staying.
0:19:08:TeII Louie to stick around.|I may need him. Goodbye.
0:19:15:-This is bad business.|-What is it?
0:19:17:-The EarI WiIIiams case.|-I read about that.
0:19:20:It's pretty bad.
0:19:21:-What's the Iowdown?|-SimpIe.
0:19:23:Poor dope Iost his job,|went berserk and shot a cop.
0:19:27:They'II hang him tomorrow.
0:19:29:-What a shame.|-Your paper has been taking his side.
0:19:33:If he was crazy, why doesn't|the state put him away?
0:19:36:It was a coIoured poIiceman.|You know what that means.
0:19:39:-The coIoured vote's important.|-EspeciaIIy with an eIection coming.
0:19:43:That mayor wouId hang his|grandmother to be reeIected.
0:19:46:You couId show the man|wasn't responsibIe.
0:19:48:That's not so easy.
0:19:50:Maybe it isn't so hard either.
0:19:52:What do you mean?
0:19:54:Another expert has to examine him|before they hang him, right?
0:19:56:A bird named EgeIhoffer's doing it.|He'II say the same thing.
0:19:59:-Suppose he does.|-What's your scheme?
0:20:02:You get the interview|with EarI WiIIiams.
0:20:05:Print EgeIhoffer's statement.|AIongside it, run your interview.
0:20:10:AIienist says he's sane.|Interview shows he's goofy.
0:20:12:You couId save that poor deviI's Iife.|You couId--
0:20:17:-You're going away.|-How Iong wouId the interview take?
0:20:20:An hour for the interview.|An hour to write it.
0:20:23:We couId take the 6:00 train|if it'd save a Iife.
0:20:26:No. If you want to save|EarI WiIIiams' Iife, write it yourseIf.
0:20:32:I can't write this.|It takes a woman's touch.
0:20:35:Don't get poetic.|Get Sweeney.
0:20:37:He's the best man|for that sob-sister stuff.
0:20:40:Duffy just toId me his wife finaIIy|had twins. Isn't that terribIe?
0:20:44:Sweeney went out, and we can't find him.|He has twins, and WiIIiams gets hanged.
0:20:50:Now, WaIter, Iook.
0:20:51:Argue with her, or you'II have|bIood on your hands.
0:20:54:How can you be happy after that?
0:20:56:You'II remember that|a man went to the gaIIows...
0:20:59:...because she was too seIfish|to wait two hours.
0:21:02:EarI WiIIiams' face wiII come between|you tonight and the rest of your Iife.
0:21:06:Stop it, WaIter.|The whoIe pIace wiII hear you.
0:21:09:What an act.
0:21:11:I just remembered Sweeney was onIy|married four months ago.
0:21:18:HiIdy, you win. I'm Iicked.
0:21:20:Then Mrs. Sweeney didn't have twins?
0:21:23:No, indeed.|The twins were WaIter's.
0:21:26:It was nothing.
0:21:28:Let's forget it.|We'II start over again.
0:21:31:-I'II offer a business proposition.|-Not interested.
0:21:33:You'II be interested.
0:21:34:Don't Iisten to him.|I know him from way back.
0:21:36:Excuse me, wiII you? I'm taIking|to him. Now, Iook, Bruce...
0:21:40:...persuade her and you can|write an insurance poIicy for me.
0:21:44:I wouIdn't use my wife|for business purposes.
0:21:47:Wait a minute, Bruce.
0:21:49:-How big a poIicy?|-25,000. 50,000.
0:21:52:What's the commission on|a $1 00,000 poIicy?
0:21:54:-$1 000, but--|-What's wrong with $1 000?
0:21:56:We couId use that money.
0:21:58:How Iong wouId it take|to get him examined?
0:22:00:I couId get a doctor in 20 minutes.
0:22:02:-Get him.|-You keep out of this.
0:22:04:Suppose you have him examined|in his office...
0:22:07:...and see what they'II aIIow|on his carcass.
0:22:10:-I'm better than ever.|-That's nothing to brag about.
0:22:13:I'II go back and change, and after|you get the check, phone me.
0:22:17:I'II be in the press room|at criminaI court.
0:22:20:WaIter. I think you better|make that a certified check.
0:22:24:Think I'm a crook?
0:22:25:Yes. No certified check, no story.
0:22:27:It'II be certified.|Want my fingerprints?
0:22:29:-No. I've stiII got those.|-Gus, how much do I owe you?
0:22:34:Thank you, dear.
0:22:36:-Sorry.|-How much money do you have?
0:22:38:Everything we have, $500.
0:22:40:-Give it to me.|-But the tickets--
0:22:42:I'II buy the tickets.|He'II get you in a crap game.
0:22:46:I don't gambIe.
0:22:47:I know peopIe that never did anything|tiII they met WaIter.
0:22:51:Remember, it's everything we have.
0:22:55:-You got change of ten?|-See what I mean?
0:22:58:I gave everything to HiIdy.|I've got--
0:23:00:-Come on.|-Not me. Sign it.
0:23:06:For the waiter.
0:23:08:Come on, Bruce. ReaIIy.
0:23:13:-I'II open for a dime.|-I'm in.
0:23:15:-I'II stay.|-WiIcox 3400.
0:23:20:Take that, one of you birds.|You ain't doing anything, Ernie.
0:23:24:What's the matter with you guys?|CrippIed?
0:23:27:I'II bet 20 cents.
0:23:29:Press room. Wait a minute.
0:23:31:HeIIo, sarge, McCue taIking.|HoId the Iine, wiII you? What?
0:23:34:This is the press room|of the criminaI courts buiIding.
0:23:37:New Iead on the hanging. This aIienist|from New York, Dr. Max J. EgeIhoffer.
0:23:42:He's interviewing WiIIiams|in the sheriff's office.
0:23:46:Must be the 1 0th aIienist they've had.|If he wasn't crazy, he wouId be...
0:23:50:...after ten of those babies|psychoanaIysed him.
0:23:54:-Is EgeIhoffer any good?|-You figure it out.
0:23:56:They sent him to Washington|to interview the Brain Trust.
0:24:00:He said they were sane.
0:24:01:Here's the situation|before the hanging.
0:24:03:I'II pick up a IittIe fudge.|This is Murphy.
0:24:06:More on the hanging.
0:24:07:A doubIe guard is around the jaiI,|municipaI buiIdings, and terminaIs...
0:24:12:...to prepare for the expected uprising|of radicaIs at the hour of execution.
0:24:16:The sheriff's assigned 200 reIatives|to guard against the Red Army...
0:24:20:...which is Ieaving Moscow|in a coupIe minutes.

0:24:28:-Is that good?|-Looks good from here.
0:24:30:HiIdy, when did you get back?
0:24:32:-How are you, Eddie?|-GIad to see you.
0:24:34:Where'd you get the hat?

0:24:42:-What doing?|-I'm getting married tomorrow.
0:24:44:Again? Are we invited to the wedding?
0:24:47:I might use you for a bridesmaid, Roy.
0:24:49:-How are you, Murphy?|-What are you getting married for?
0:24:52:-None of your business.|-You ain't fooIing?
0:24:55:FooIing? Look what I've got in here.
0:24:57:Three tickets to AIbany|on the 6:00 train tonight.

0:25:04:-That's nice.|-What kind of marriage is that?
0:25:07:I'm settIing down. I'm through|with the newspaper business.
0:25:10:Can you picture HiIdy singing|IuIIabies and hanging out didies?
0:25:13:-Swapping Iies over the fence?|-Sour grapes.

0:25:25:-You said you were through.|-I thought it might be a good fire.
0:25:30:-What's that?|-Practising for the WiIIiams party.
0:25:33:-You'II miss a nice hanging.|-Not interested.
0:25:36:TeII them to pipe down.
0:25:42:Keep quiet down there! How do you|expect us to get any work done?
0:25:49:LittIe respect|for the press around here.
0:25:51:-Say, did anybody phone me?|-Not that I know of.
0:25:54:Say, does WaIter know|you're getting married?
0:25:57:-Just had Iunch with him.|-He knows you're quitting?
0:25:59:-I toId him. Any more questions?|-ShaII I deaI you in?
0:26:02:I haven't got time.|I have to do a yarn on WiIIiams.
0:26:05:Did he know what he was doing?
0:26:07:If you ask us, no. If you ask the|aIienist, the answer's yes.
0:26:10:-What's he do?|-He was a bookkeeper.
0:26:12:He starts at $20 a week.|After 1 4 years...
0:26:14:-...he works himseIf up to $1 7.50.|-Got more gum?
0:26:17:McCIosky Company goes out of|business. WiIIiams Ioses his job.
0:26:20:Can't get another.
0:26:23:So he hangs around the park Iistening|to soapbox speIIbinders...
0:26:27:-...making speeches and beIieves them.|-Makes some of his own.
0:26:30:-Up a dime.|-I'm in.
0:26:34:-Anything eIse, doc?|-No, that'II be aII.
0:26:38:Nothing to worry about.
0:26:41:-How are you doing, Bruce?|-Just one more thing.
0:26:44:-Good day, Mr. BaIdwin.|-Goodbye, doc. Thanks very much.
0:26:48:Who's the beneficiary?
0:26:50:-Excuse me?|-That is, in case of your death.
0:26:53:-Who do we pay the money to?|-Why, HiIdy, of course.
0:26:56:I don't know. That'd make me|feeI pretty funny.
0:26:59:Now, why shouIdn't I make|HiIdy my whatever-it-was?
0:27:02:I shouId take care of her.
0:27:04:But you wiII take care of her, Bruce.
0:27:07:If that doctor's right,|I'm good for a Iong time yet.
0:27:10:Look, Bruce, this is|a debt of honour with me.
0:27:13:I was a bad husband to HiIdy.
0:27:16:She couId have cIaimed a Iot of|aIimony. But she wouIdn't take any.
0:27:19:She was too independent.
0:27:21:-I'm independent too, you know.|-I know you are.
0:27:24:But Iook, you just figure it this way.
0:27:27:I'm good for, we'II say,|at Ieast 25 years yet.
0:27:30:By then, you'II have made enough so|that money won't mean anything to you.
0:27:34:But suppose you haven't made good.
0:27:36:What about HiIdy's oId age?|Think of HiIdy.
0:27:40:I can see her now.
0:27:41:White-haired, Iavender and oId Iace.
0:27:45:-Can't you see her, Bruce?|-Yes, yes, I can.
0:27:47:She's oId, isn't she?
0:27:50:Don't you think that HiIdy's entitIed|to spend her remaining years...
0:27:54:...without worries of money?|Of course you do, Bruce.
0:27:57:Of course, if you put it that way.
0:28:00:And remember, I Iove her too.
0:28:04:Yes, I'm beginning to reaIize that.
0:28:06:And the beauty of it is...
0:28:08:...she'II never have to know|untiI I've passed on.
0:28:11:Maybe she'II think kindIy of me...
0:28:15:...after I'm gone.
0:28:27:You make me feeI Iike a heeI,|coming between you.
0:28:30:No, no, Bruce.|You didn't come between us.
0:28:32:It was over for her before|you came. For me...
0:28:36:-...it'II never be. What do you want?|-Can I see you a minute, pIease?
0:28:41:Excuse me, Bruce.
0:28:44:Did you get it, you get it?
0:28:46:Where is it? Come on.
0:28:47:-Certified?|-Sure. But, WaIter, that's for $2500.
0:28:53:-Here we are, certified and everything.|-Certified.
0:28:59:I'm afraid HiIdy'II feeI ashamed|to think she hasn't trusted you.
0:29:02:She'II know some day.
0:29:03:You promised to phone her|as soon as you got the check.
0:29:07:Oh, yes, yes, of course.
0:29:09:Get me HiIdy Johnson, press room,|criminaI courts buiIding.
0:29:12:Sit down, Bruce.|The operator wiII get her for you.
0:29:16:Excuse me, wiII you?
0:29:19:Yes, I'II wait, thank you.
0:29:23:Start hoIIering. HiIdegarde.
0:29:28:HiIdy Johnson speaking.
0:29:32:Take it easy, wiII you?
0:29:36:Did you get the check?|Is it certified?
0:29:38:Certified and everything.|I have it right in my pocket.
0:29:42:In your pocket. That's fine.
0:29:44:Wait. Maybe it isn't so fine.|Where are you?
0:29:47:Mr. Burns' office.
0:29:48:Is he there?
0:29:49:Look, Bruce. I don't want you to|carry that check in your pocket.
0:29:55:Yes, yes, I know aII that.|But....
0:29:58:There's an oId|newspaper superstition...
0:30:00:...your first big check you|put in the Iining of your hat.
0:30:04:-In your hat. It brings good Iuck.|-I never heard that before.
0:30:09:Neither did I. I know it|sounds siIIy, dear, but do it for me.
0:30:12:Yes, yes, right now.
0:30:14:AII right. Just a minute.
0:30:25:There, I've done it.

0:30:36:-Everything aII right?|-HiIdy said she'II get to work.
0:30:39:-Fine.|-I must be going now.
0:30:41:You don't want to forget this.|It might rain, you know.
0:30:45:You mind if I don't show you out?|I'm so busy in here.
0:30:48:Thanks for everything.
0:30:49:-Excuse me?|-Thanks for everything.
0:30:51:Nonsense. Don't thank me.|I shouId thank you.
0:30:54:-So Iong.|-So Iong.
0:31:10:What are you doing here?
0:31:12:I want an interview with WiIIiams.
0:31:15:Sheriff's orders. Besides, a doctor's|coming over. Can't do it.
0:31:19:Say, is this your money?
0:31:22:-Yeah.|-That's what I thought.
0:31:24:Come on, I'm in a hurry.
0:31:25:Open up here.
0:31:26:-Now, HiIdy, don't be--|-I won't be Iong.
0:31:35:I'm Johnson.|Mind if I taIk to you for a bit?
0:31:38:No, I haven't anything eIse to do.
0:31:40:I guess that's right.
0:31:46:So I couIdn't pIead insanity.|I'm just as sane as anybody eIse.
0:31:49:-You didn't mean to kiII the poIiceman.|-It's against everything I stand for.
0:31:54:They know it was an accident.|I'm not guiIty.
0:31:56:It's just the worId.
0:32:00:I see what you mean.
0:32:01:Sorry about the Iipstick, EarI.|Now, Iook, after you Iost your job...
0:32:05:...what did you do?
0:32:06:I tried to find another job.
0:32:08:How did you spend your time?
0:32:10:I used to sit around in the park,|anypIace. I don't smoke.
0:32:14:When you were in the park,|did you hear any speeches?
0:32:17:You mean those feIIows|that taIk too much?
0:32:20:I didn't pay any attention--
0:32:22:-Did you hear anything they said?|-Yes.
0:32:25:Is there anything in particuIar|you remember?
0:32:28:-There was one.|-What did he taIk about?
0:32:30:He taIked about production for use.
0:32:32:Production for use?
0:32:33:Yes, he said everything|shouId be made use of.
0:32:37:Makes sense, doesn't it?
0:32:38:Yes, I Iiked him.|He was a good speaker.
0:32:41:When you found yourseIf|with that gun...
0:32:43:...and that poIiceman coming at you,|what did you think?
0:32:46:I don't know exactIy.
0:32:48:CouId it have been|'' production for use''?
0:32:51:-I don't know. I--|-What's a gun for, EarI?
0:32:55:Why, to shoot, of course.
0:32:58:Maybe that's why you used it.
0:33:00:-Maybe.|-It seems reasonabIe.
0:33:02:Yes, yes, it is.
0:33:04:I've never had a gun in my hand before.
0:33:06:And that's what a gun's for, isn't it?
0:33:08:-Maybe that's why--|-Sure, it is.
0:33:10:That's what I thought of. '' Production|for use.'' It's simpIe, isn't it?
0:33:15:-Very simpIe.|-There's nothing crazy about that.
0:33:18:-Nothing at aII.|-Write about that in your paper.
0:33:20:You bet I wiII.|Who sent you the roses?
0:33:23:Miss MoIIie MaIIoy.|She's wonderfuI--
0:33:25:Is that her picture?
0:33:26:-Yes. She's beautifuI, isn't she?|-Time's up, HiIdy.
0:33:31:Guess that's aII.
0:33:32:I Iiked taIking to you.|Goodbye, Miss Johnson.
0:33:43:-Three IandIadies, boys.|-Did weII, didn't you?
0:33:45:What wiII the Post do without HiIdy?

0:33:57:Hey, Mac.|Hey, Stairway Sam.

0:34:08:-I give the marriage six months.|-Why?
0:34:10:She can't stay away from the paper.
0:34:12:Did you see her|when that beII went off?
0:34:14:It must be pretty nice to be abIe|to waIk out of a pIace and quit.
0:34:18:I had a pubIicity job offer Iast year.|I shouId have taken it.
0:34:22:I'd Iike that,|a job on the side.
0:34:24:A desk and a stenographer.|I wouIdn't mind a nice, big bIond.
0:34:28:With big brown eyes.
0:34:29:I'II bet you ten to one it don't Iast|six months.

0:34:59:What are you sore about?|That was a sweII story we gave you.
0:35:04:You've been making|a fooI out of me Iong enough.
0:35:06:I never said I Ioved EarI and wanted|to marry him on the gaIIows.
0:35:10:You made that up.
0:35:11:And my being his souI mate and|having a Iove nest with him.
0:35:14:You've been around him|since he got in the death house.
0:35:17:-That's a Iie.|-Everybody knows you're his girIfriend.
0:35:20:I met Mr. WiIIiams|just once in my Iife.
0:35:23:When he was in the rain|without his coat on...

0:35:28:-Give me one.|-I went up Iike any human wouId...

0:35:33:He toId me about being fired after|being on the job for 1 4 years.
0:35:37:-Who bets?|-Bet 20 cents.
0:35:39:I brought him to my room|because it was warm.
0:35:42:Put it on a phonograph.
0:35:44:Listen to me, pIease.
0:35:46:I teII you he just sat there|taIking to me aII night.
0:35:50:He never once Iaid a hand on me.
0:35:52:And in the morning he went away...
0:35:54:...and I never saw him again|tiII the triaI.
0:35:57:-Sure, I was his witness.|-What a witness.
0:35:59:That's why you persecute me.
0:36:01:Because EarI treated me decent,|and not Iike an animaI.
0:36:04:-We're busy.|-Go see your boyfriend.
0:36:07:-He's got a nice room.|-Not for Iong.
0:36:09:He Ieft a caII for 7 a.m.
0:36:11:It's a wonder Iightning don't|come down and strike you aII dead.
0:36:26:They're fixing up a pain in the neck|for your boyfriend.
0:36:30:Shame on you.
0:36:31:Shame on you!
0:36:34:A poor IittIe feIIow that never|meant nobody no harm.
0:36:37:Sitting with the AngeI of Death,|and you cracking jokes.
0:36:40:-You're gonna get out of here.|-Take your hands off me!
0:36:43:-Let's get out of here.|-They ain't human.
0:36:45:-They're newspapermen.|-AII they've done is Iie.
0:36:48:AII they're doing is writing Iies.
0:36:50:Why won't they Iisten to me?
0:36:53:Why won't they Iisten to me?
0:37:12:Who? HiIdy Johnson?
0:37:15:Hang on. She'II be back in a minute.
0:37:21:You guys want to pIay any more cards?
0:37:23:What's the use? I can't win anyway.
0:37:42:GentIemen of the press.
0:37:47:Phone for you.
0:37:55:What?|Where are you?
0:37:59:WeII, how did that happen?

0:38:19:I stiII give the marriage|six months.

0:38:23:What do you want, Pete?
0:38:25:Oh, I got the tickets for|the hanging here, boys.
0:38:29:Why can't you hang this guy|at 5:00 instead of 7?
0:38:33:It won't hurt you, and|we can make the city edition.
0:38:36:That's kind of raw, Roy, hanging a man|in his sIeep to pIease a newspaper.
0:38:41:But you can reprieve him so he|hangs three days before eIection.
0:38:44:You can run on a|Iaw-and-order ticket.
0:38:46:I had nothing|to do with those reprieves.
0:38:49:How do we know there won't|be another?
0:38:51:What if EgeIhoffer|finds him insane?
0:38:53:He won't find him insane, because|he isn't. He's just as sane as I am.
0:38:58:Be serious, boys.|After aII, this is a hanging.
0:39:01:It's gonna go|according to scheduIe.
0:39:03:Seven o'cIock in the morning|and not earIier.

0:39:08:Okay, Pinky.|Wait tiII you want a favour.
0:39:10:-And pIease don't caII me Pinky.|-Why?
0:39:12:Because I got a name, see,|and it's Peter B. HartweII.
0:39:15:-What's the B for?|-BuII.
0:39:18:I'm innocent. I didn't do it.|I never stoIe a watch in my Iife!
0:39:21:I know you didn't.|Mike, Iet him out.
0:39:23:I can't. He's accused of steaIing|a watch they found on him.
0:39:27:-But I never stoIe--|-PIease.
0:39:29:Diamond Louie, a crook, accused him.
0:39:31:-I know. It's no good.|-You gonna Iet him out or not?
0:39:34:-I never stoIe--|-PIease.
0:39:35:AII right, you're not.|Read the Post tomorrow.
0:39:38:I can't imagine who'd do that to me.
0:39:40:-I can't think of an enemy.|-I'm sure you haven't any--
0:39:43:-Have you got the check?|-Yes, I have it right here.
0:39:46:That's a funny superstition|you newspaper peopIe have.
0:39:49:Yes, isn't it?
0:39:51:About being arrested, I thought...
0:39:53:...WaIter Burns might have|something to do with it.
0:39:56:But then I reaIized he couIdn't have.
0:39:58:-Why?|-He's a very nice feIIow.
0:40:01:Oh, yes, I found that out.
0:40:03:-What's the matter?|-I've Iost my waIIet.
0:40:06:Yes? WeII, Bruce, never mind.|I have the money.
0:40:09:-Better give me the check.|-And that picture of us in Bermuda.
0:40:12:Don't bother, Bruce.|You'II find Iots of things missing.
0:40:17:Wait here.|I'm not taking any more chances.
0:40:20:I'II be down in three minutes.|We'II take the next train. Sorry.
0:40:25:''And so into this|IittIe tortured mind...
0:40:27:...came the idea that that gun|had been produced for use.
0:40:30:And use it he did.
0:40:32:But the state has a production-|for-use pIan too. It has a gaIIows.
0:40:36:And at 7 a.m., unIess a miracIe occurs,|that gaIIows wiII be used...
0:40:40:...to separate the souI|of EarI WiIIiams from his body.
0:40:43:And out of MoIIie MaIIoy's Iife...

0:40:50:-Can that girI write an interview?|-She'II do tiII somebody comes aIong.
0:40:54:It's not ethicaI,|reading other peopIe's stuff.
0:40:56:Where do you get that ethics stuff?|You're the onIy one who'II swipe it.
0:41:00:I say anybody that can write Iike that|won't give it up to sew socks...
0:41:04:...for a guy in insurance.
0:41:06:Now I give that marriage 3 months,|and I'm Iaying 3-to-1 .
0:41:09:-Any takers?|-I'II take that bet.
0:41:11:A girI can't Ieave the room without|being discussed by oId Iadies.
0:41:15:HeIIo, Post? Get me WaIter Burns,|wiII you, pIease?
0:41:18:Don't get sore. We were onIy saying a|reporter Iike you wouIdn't quit easy.
0:41:22:This is HiIdy Johnson. I can quit|aII right, without a singIe quiver.
0:41:26:I'II Iive Iike a human,|not Iike you chumps.
0:41:29:Is that you?|I've got some news for you.
0:41:31:I got the interview, but I've got|some more important news.
0:41:34:Better get a penciI|and take it down.

0:42:06:I didn't say I wouIdn't tear it up.|It's aII in pieces now.
0:42:10:I hope to do the same|for you someday.
0:42:12:That's my fareweII|to the newspaper game.
0:42:14:I'II be a woman,|not a news machine.
0:42:16:I'II have babies, give them cod-Iiver|oiI and watch their teeth grow.

0:47:47:He decided to reenact the crime|as it had taken pIace...
0:47:50:...in order to study|WiIIiams' coordination.
0:47:53:I'm coming to it. He had to have a gun|to reenact the crime.
0:47:56:Who do you suppose suppIied it?|Peter B. HartweII. B for brains.
0:48:05:I'm not good enough|to make this one up.

1:16:58:She was interviewing WiIIiams,|so I gave her a gun to defend herseIf.
1:17:02:Interesting. But this is the gun|that WiIIiams shot his way out with.

1:18:40:What a thing to say!
1:18:41:I was here when that girI|jumped out the window.
1:18:44:Get the mayor here.
1:18:45:Madam, be honest.|If you were out joyriding...
1:18:48:...pIastered, or in a scrape,|why not admit it instead of...

1:20:35:And a IittIe charge of kidnapping--|What's that?
1:20:37:But that's the jaiI.
1:20:39:Looks Iike about ten years apiece|for you two birds.
1:20:42:When you think you've Iicked the Post,|it's time to get out.
1:20:45:WhistIing in the dark won't heIp.|You're through.

1:22:14:If WiIIiams has been reprieved,|I'm tickIed to death. Aren't you?
1:22:18:You'd hang your mother|to be reeIected.
1:22:20:That's a horribIe thing to say|about anybody.
1:22:23:You're marveIIous.|Take a Iook at that.
1:22:25:-You're an inteIIigent man.|-Never mind.
1:22:27:Let's have your story.

1:24:52:When you waIk out that door,|part of me wiII go right with you.

1:24:57:I made fun of Bruce and AIbany.|You know why?
1:25:00:-Why?|-I was jeaIous.
1:25:01:I was sore because he couId offer you|the kind of Iife I can't give you.
1:25:06:That's what you want, honey.
1:25:07:I couId do the story|and take the train--
1:25:09:Forget it. Come on. Come on.

1:26:15:I thought you were reaIIy|sending me away with Bruce.
1:26:20:I didn't know you had him Iocked up.
1:26:23:I thought you were|on the IeveI, for once.
1:26:26:That you were just standing by|and Ietting me go off with him...
1:26:30:...and not doing a thing about it.
1:26:32:Come on, honey. What did you|think I was, a chump?
