REEL 7.—Eliminate distinct view of bandits getting on train—distinct view of bandit uncoupling cars, and distinct view of bandit with gun held in engineer's back. LOVE AFFAIR MARCH, 1932 REEL 3-—"Now you've got to stop pickin' at Hardy. You've got to take him over." "Sure. I'm willing to make a sacrifice —as long as it's for your benefit." "Oh, that isn't Hardy. He wouldn't ring." Eliminate views of Hardy leaving elevator, advancing toward door of Linda's apartment (3) and accompanying dialogue: "Oh Daddy, it's been so lonesome without you. I thought you'd never come."

Everything's gone down, but I'm not quite that cheap. You can't pay me off like a waiter's check and get away ivith it." "The rent's paid for the balance of the lease. And this is an apartment — not a stage. The part you're playing doesn't suit you. You are much more effective as an ingenue — and may I ask what lawyer ivrote your lines for you?" "You'll find out when he slaps a summons in your face to appear in a breach of promise case." "I never promised to marry you. I told you I had no intention of marry- ing you." "Why, you're pretty near old enough to be my father, and if you ivant to see hoiv good an ingenue I am, watch me do my stuff in a court room." "You don't think I'm paying you enough, huh?" "I know that you're not." "Well, get this. Millions for defense, but not a cent for tribute — not another cent." "Now don't stand there arguing. Hardy gets married day after tomorrow and we gotta act quick." "Fine! The sorer he gets the better I like it. / want him to get so sore he'll go gunnin' for Hardy. Will you do as I tell you?" 52
