:29:01
Sometimes I get the feeling
he doesn't trust me.

:29:23
I know
who the mysterious stranger is.

:29:27
He's a liar and a thief.
:29:29
Sure. A latterday Fran├žois Villon,
:29:31
who lives by his wits
and what he steals.

:29:34
Ajewel thief, maybe.
:29:36
Expert safe-cracker.
:29:38
There isn't a safe in the world
:29:41
he can't open with his bare hands.
I've got it!

:29:44
We have to start all over again
:29:47
but that's not too serious.
We've only got eight pages.

:29:50
Let's see. We're alright through
Alexander Meyerheim production,

:29:53
Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower,
story and screenplay, Richard Benson.

:29:57
We keep the Bastille Dayjazz, only
this time we don't start on Gabby,

:30:02
we start on... Rick.
:30:05
Rick. That's a wonderful name
for the mysterious stranger.

:30:08
Don't editorialise.
Just start typing.

:30:12
Exterior, day. A picturesque square.
:30:16
Amidst the throng of merrymakers,
:30:19
the camera picks up a rather tall,
rather suntanned American...

:30:25
We'd better change his wardrobe
for a liar-and-a-thief suit.

:30:29
You know, various shades of black.
:30:31
Moving with the grace of ajungle
cat, Rick approaches the table

:30:35
where Gabby is getting
the brush-off from her actor.

:30:39
His almost super-human intelligence
takes in the situation at once.

:30:43
He hesitates. If there's
a single chink in Rick's armour,

:30:47
it's a pretty face.
:30:49
He comes to a decision
and moves to another table,

:30:53
where two denizens
of the underworld await him.

:30:56
Call them first gangster
and second gangster.

:30:58
Well, Rick?
