King Kong

I catch you, you stealer.
Now, I get you cop. You like that, huh?

No, no. I didn't. Let me go.
I wanted to, but I didn't.

- Had enough of these stealers.
- Dry up. Kid didn't take any.

- Truly I didn't.
- Three people this week...

- Here... Here's a buck.
- A buck.

Hey, taxi!
Feeling better?
Yes, thank you.
- You're very kind.
- Don't you fool yourself.

I'm not bothering
about you just out of kindness.

- How'd you ever get into this fix?
- Bad luck, I guess.

There are a lot of girls like me.
- Not many with your looks.
- I can get by in good clothes all right.

- But when a girl gets too shabby...
- No family?

Supposed to have an uncle someplace.
Did you ever do any acting?
I used to do extra work now
and then over on Long Island.

The studio's closed now.
- What's your name?
- Ann Darrow.

Fine. I've got a job for you.
Costumes on the ship
will fit you.

If the shops are still open,
I can get clothes for you.

- Come on.
- But...

- But what is it?
- It's money and adventure and fame.

It's the thrill of a lifetime.
A long sea voyage...

...that starts at
6:00 tomorrow morning.

No, wait.
I don't understand.
You must tell me.

I do want the job so...
...but I can't.
- Oh, I see.
