EXT. HOMESTEAD - DAY ONE 2

In a LONG SHOT we see Robert E and Grace driving up to the
homestead. There is a large trunk in the back of their wagon.


+CLOSER ON THE HOMESTEAD 2A

As the wagon arrives, MIKE, carrying KATIE, SULLY and BRIAN
come out of the house. They are excited. By their attitudes
we can tell they are a family on a mission.

MIKE
I'm glad we're getting an early
start.

SULLY
Wanna be there when the train
arrives.

BRIAN
(excited)
Look. Robert E. and Miss Grace.

He hurries off the porch to greet Robert E and Grace. Sully,
Mike and Katie are right behind him.

ROBERT E
Mornin', folks.

SULLY
Robert E.

Brian and Sully help Grace out of the wagon.

ROBERT E
You won't believe what it's like
in town.

GRACE
People comin' in from everywhere
to see that Gilda St. Clair. I
had no idea she was gonna draw
such a crowd.

MIKE
(a smile)
She is a very popular entertainer.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: 2A

GRACE
It'll be good for my business. I
just feel bad she's on the same
train as Colleen. It's gonna be
packed at the station.

BRIAN
(looking at the cake)
Colleen's birthday cake?

GRACE
Chocolate -- with raspberry
fillin'.

BRIAN
I'll take it inside.

GRACE
Thank you, Brian.

He takes the cake and and goes inside.


+ANGLE - SULLY AND ROBERT E 3

are taking the trunk out of the wagon. Mike and Grace move
over to them. The trunk is is a beautifully constructed wood
and leather one with a metal latch. It has the initials "C C"
burned into the wooden strip on the front of the trunk.

SULLY
The initials look good.

MIKE
Yes. Thank you, Robert E.

ROBERT E
You all did a fine job puttin' it
together. Glad I could add my
part.

SULLY
Let's put it in the barn where she
won't see it.

Robert E and Sully head toward the barn with the trunk.

GRACE
(to Mike)
Doesn't hardly seem possible, does
it? One day they're this size,
the next day...

MIKE
(quietly)
They're turning seventeen.

GRACE
You nervous 'bout your grown up
girl comin' home from school for
the first time? It's been a
month.

MIKE
Nervous? No. Excited. Happy.
Curious.
(admitting it with a
smile)
Perhaps a little nervous.

+WIDE] ANGLE ON THE DEPOT 5B

There is a festive feeling in the air. We OVERHEAR snatches of
conversation as PEOPLE wait, excitedly, for the arrival of
Gilda St. Clair. PRESTON is glad-handing the crowd. He passes
by:

+ANGLE - JAKE 5C

JAKE is holding an oversized Key to The City and practicing a
speech.

JAKE
"Colorado Springs welcomes you to
our beautiful town."
(beat)
"Colorado Springs welcomes you to
our Rocky Mountain town."

Preston passes by him and moves on to:


+ANGLE - LOREN AND HANK 5D

LOREN
I saw Miss St. Clair sing once.
Ten years ago. I said "Hello" to
her as she passed me. Wonder if
she'll remember.

HANK
("fat chance")
Sure.

Preston reaches:


+ANGLE - DOROTHY 6

DOROTHY is writing notes on her pad. PRESTON gives her further
instructions:

PRESTON
Don't forget to mention the
concert -- there are still tickets
available.

The SOUND of the train is closer. The adrenalin level in the
crowd goes up.


+ANGLE [STREET - DAY 6A

Sully, Mike and family are arriving in town hurrying to beat
the train. We see MATTHEW and EMMA meet their wagon, help them
out and hurry over to the train depot.]

Look at that, she has her own car.

He shrugs as if it's no big deal to him. Dorothy writes notes
about it on her pad. The train slows to a stop, steam blows.


+MIKE AND SULLY 10

scan the emerging passengers for Colleen.


+ANGLE ON THE SPECIAL CAR 11

Just before Gilda steps off:

JAKE
(still practicing)
"Colorado Springs welcomes you to
our rapidly growing town."
(he's not happy with
that one either)

GILDA ST. CLAIR steps off the train. Extraordinarily
charismatic, Gilda is beautiful, gracious, and charming. The
crowd CHEERS as she steps out of her car and waves.

Jake delivers the speech he's been practicing.

JAKE
"Miss St. Clair, Colorado Springs
welcomes you to our -- town."

He hands her the oversized Key. She takes it, touched by the
gesture, close to tears:

GILDA
This is the most wonderful
reception anyone has ever given
me. I will treasure this key --
and majestic Colorado Springs --
forever.

JAKE
(to himself, "why
didn't I think of
that?")
Majestic -- .

The crowd CHEERS again, and Gilda holds out her hand to Jake.
He's not quite sure at first what to do, then realizes what's
expected of him. He takes the hand and gently kisses it.
Another CHEER from the crowd. Jake helps her down.


+MIKE AND SULLY 12

are moving through the crowd looking for Colleen. Mike is
beginning to be worried.

Mike looks where Sully is indicating.


+COLLEEN 13

is stepping out of Gilda's car. Dressed in a fashionable,
sophisticated dress, her hair in a stylistic figure eight knot
caught at the back -- this is not the COLLEEN we've seen
before.

Colleen sees her family. Her face lights up. She waves.

COLLEEN
Ma! Sully!

ACT ONE


FADE IN:


EXT. TRAIN DEPOT - DAY ONE 15

Dorothy, Preston, Loren, Emma, and Colleen's family are all
still at the train station. Colleen has joined her family.
She's holding Katie, admiring her. Hank and Jake are still
there also.

COLLEEN
Oh, Katie! You've gotten so big!

She turns to Mike and Sully.

COLLEEN
She's changed so much already.

SULLY
She's not the only one.

MIKE
Where did you get that beautiful
dress?

COLLEEN
Isn't it wonderful? Gilda gave it
to me.

MIKE
"Gilda?"

COLLEEN
She taught me how to do my hair
like this, too. Come on! I want
you to meet her.

MATTHEW
I'll get your bags. Brian? Wanna
help?

Brian grins and nods and hurries after Matthew. Emma stays
behind as Colleen, still carrying Katie, leads Mike and Sully
toward Gilda.


+ANGLE - AT GILDA ST. CLAIR 16

Jake leans in to have a confidential chat with Miss St. Clair.

JAKE
As Mayor, I was wonderin' if I
could take you to dinner tonight?

(CONTINUED)

GILDA
I'd be honored.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: (2) 16

JAKE
You would?

GILDA
Shall we say, seven?

JAKE
Seven? Sure. Seven.

Colleen arrives with Mike, Sully and Katie in tow.

COLLEEN
Miss St. Clair --

GILDA
("scolding")
Colleen! "Gilda," please.

COLLEEN
(shyly pleased)
Gilda. This is my ma -- Dr. Mike,
I was tellin' you about, and my
pa, Sully. And this is my baby
sister, Katie.

GILDA
She's even more beautiful than you
said.

COLLEEN
(to Mike)
I told Gilda you'd take a look at
her throat. She's been havin'
some trouble with it.

MIKE
Yes, certainly.

Before Colleen can answer, Preston approaches, full of himself.

PRESTON
Miss St. Clair? Preston A. Lodge,
III.

She looks at him blankly; who is this rude man interrupting her
conversation with Colleen and her family? Preston is irritated
that he has to remind her:

PRESTON
I'm the man responsible for
bringing you to Colorado Springs.

GILDA
Oh, yes. You want to see my
manager, Max Henderson.
(MORE)

(CONTINUED)


9.


CONTINUED: (3) 16

GILDA (CONT'D)
He'll sign the contract.
(turning back to
Mike)
Colleen promised me a tour of your
fine clinic.

Preston tries to mask his embarrassment as Gilda St. Clair
literally turns her back on him in front of a crowd of people.
As Gilda, Mike, Colleen (carrying Katie) walk off:

MIKE
(smiling)
I'm afraid there's not enough
clinic to warrant a tour. But I'd
be happy to show it to you.

Preston scans the crowd. He sees a man he presumes to be the
manager.


+PRESTON'S POINT OF VIEW 16A

A cigar chomping, bowler hat and suit wearing man is ordering
some people about as they unload Gilda's luggage.


+PRESTON 17

walks over to him.

PRESTON
Mr. Henderson?

MAX HENDERSON turns to look at Preston.

PRESTON
Preston A. Lodge, III.

Max seems to have no idea who he is, either. Preston is
getting really irritated.

PRESTON
We've been corresponding for three
months.

MAX
Oh, yes. Yes, yes, of course.
"Lodge," you said?

PRESTON
Preston A. Lodge, III.

MAX
Max.

(CONTINUED)


10.


CONTINUED: 17

PRESTON
I believe we have contracts to
sign.

MAX
Right you are. Well, where can a
man get a drink in this town?

PRESTON
(it's not what he had
in mind, but:)
No reason not to mix business and
pleasure, I suppose.

He gestures the way for them to go. As they start to leave:

MAX
"Lodge," eh? Good name. Solid.
I like it.

They walk toward the saloon.


INT. CLINIC - DAY ONE 18

Mike has just completed examining Gilda St. Clair's throat.
She has a tongue depressor in her hand. Colleen comes in from
the side door.

COLLEEN
Katie's asleep.

MIKE
Thank you Colleen.
(back to Gilda)
Your throat is inflamed and a bit
irritated.
(to Gilda)
How long has it been like this?

GILDA
The night in Denver is the first I
recall. Colleen recommended a
hot, salt water gargle --

MIKE
(surprised and
pleased)
Colleen -- ?

GILDA
-- and the tree thing, what was
that, again?

(CONTINUED)


11.


CONTINUED: 18

COLLEEN
Willow Bark tea, but I didn't have
any with me and it's hard to find
in Denver, did you know that, Ma?

MIKE
Yes, I know, but -- how did you
two meet?

COLLEEN
(a happy memory)
I went to the Lyric Opera House
with some friends, to see Miss St.
Clair's concert --

GILDA
Just before curtain, a searing
pain began radiating from my heart
up through my throat. It was
excruciating. I could barely
talk, I knew I couldn't sing.

COLLEEN
Max came out front and asked if
there was a doctor in the house.

MIKE
Max -- ?

GILDA
My manager. Colleen's friends
pressed her into service, the hot
salt water gargle did the trick
and... the show went on.

COLLEEN
I could hardly believe it was
happenin'.

MIKE
It all sounds very exciting,
Colleen.

GILDA
I insisted she come back the next
two nights, to make certain I had
the correct proportion of salt to
water for my gargle.

COLLEEN
When I found out Gilda was comin'
to Colorado Springs I told her she
just had to see you.

(CONTINUED)


12.


CONTINUED: (2) 18

GILDA
And here I am.

COLLEEN
It's nothin' serious, is it?

MIKE
Well, if there's no history of
inflammation or pain --

Gilda shakes her head.

MIKE
-- then it would appear to be
nothing more than strain. Rest
and Willow Bark tea are the best
remedies.

Gilda relaxes. We see a bit more vulnerability and innocence
in her for the next few lines:

GILDA
Colleen said I would like you.
She was right.

More to Colleen than Gilda, though directed at Gilda:

MIKE
Well, thank you.

As Mike puts together some Willow Bark tea for Gilda:

COLLEEN
(to Gilda)
Do you have any plans for tonight?

GILDA
No, I'm free as a bird.

COLLEEN
Maybe you'd like to come out to
our place, help us celebrate my
birthday.

GILDA
I'd be honored. Shall we say
seven?

COLLEEN
Ma?

MIKE
Seven would be fine.

(CONTINUED)


13.


CONTINUED: (3) 18

Mike is a little disappointed that it's not going to be just
family, but she doesn't let that show. It is, after all,
Colleen's birthday and it should be just how she wants it.


INT. SALOON - DAY ONE 19

Max and Preston are negotiating. Hank, drying glasses, watches
the two men in amusement.

MAX
Twenty percent! We agreed to
thirty!

PRESTON
We didn't agree to anything. I
wrote to you that I was willing to
go as high as twenty percent. You
wired back that we would work out
the final details when you
arrived.

MAX
I must've been distracted. I
don't usually let things like
percentages get away from me.

PRESTON
Twenty percent is what I offered,
twenty percent is where I stand.

MAX
Oh, hell, I don't want to fight
with you, Mr. Lodge, but Gilda
will have my head if she finds out
I settled for twenty percent.
Isn't there something we can work
out?

PRESTON
Such as?

MAX
Maybe you could pay the
transportation costs --

PRESTON
("no way")
Transportation -- !

MAX
Or her expenses while she's here.
You know, lunches, dinners --

(CONTINUED)


14.


CONTINUED: 19

HANK
Jake said he's takin' her to
dinner.

MAX
He did? So, why don't I take
expenses and --

PRESTON
(interrupting)
No. I'll take expenses.

MAX
(a sigh)
-- leaving me with transportation.

Preston picks up the pen, hands it to Max to sign. Max does,
hands it back to Preston, then, looking at the stuffed bear, to
Hank:

MAX
Say, where could I get me one of
those?

Hank grins, and we go to:


INT. HOMESTEAD - NIGHT ONE 20

Brian is entertaining Katie (who is in her cradle) with her
favorite bunny toy in a corner of the room. There are eight
place settings of the "company" dishes set on the table.
Colleen is getting out the candles for the table as Mike
finishes preparations on the ham dinner.

COLLEEN
... and when Gilda was in Chicago,
guess who offered his services to
her, free of charge? Allan
Pinkerton.

BRIAN
Who's Allan Pinkerton?

MIKE
He's a clever man who's captured
several bank robbers.

Sully comes inside.

COLLEEN
(to Sully)
Any sign of them?

(CONTINUED)


14A.


CONTINUED: 20

SULLY
Not yet.

(CONTINUED)


15.


CONTINUED: (2) 20

COLLEEN
Oh, Ma, the best part! Gilda
actually met Ralph Waldo Emerson.

MIKE
Colleen, this is all fascinating,
but what about you? How is
school?

Colleen's high energy sags a bit, though she tries to keep up
the appearance, at least, of enthusiasm.

COLLEEN
(beat)
It's fine.

SULLY
You keepin' up with your studies
all right?

COLLEEN
Yes.

But she doesn't sound so sure. She is saved from any further
interrogation by the SOUND of the wagon arriving.

COLLEEN
She's here! Oh, my gosh. Does
everythin' look all right?

MIKE
Everything is fine, Colleen.

Sully walks over to open the door. Gilda and Max enter.

GILDA
We're late and it's entirely my
fault. Please tell me I haven't
spoiled dinner. I'll throw myself
off a cliff if I've caused you any
inconvenience.

COLLEEN
Oh, no. Not at all.

GILDA
What a charming home you have. It
reminds me of Crown Prince
Rudolph's hunting lodge at
Meyerling.

(CONTINUED)


16.


CONTINUED: (3) 20

COLLEEN
(thrilled)
It does?

MIKE
Well, if you would all be seated,
Colleen can help me serve dinner.

They all sit at the table as Mike and Colleen start to serve up
dinner:

GILDA
Rudolph was the dearest man. I
met him in London, actually, when
I was there on my first European
tour...


EXT. GRACE'S - NIGHT ONE 21

There is no one in the cafe at this hour, except Jake who is
sitting at a small table, a nice sized bouquet of wildflowers
in hand, still waiting for Gilda. Grace comes over; in spite
of herself, she feels sorry for him.

GRACE
I'll be closin' up soon, Jake.

JAKE
'nother five minutes, she'll be
here.

GRACE
(gently, with
kindness)
You said that half an hour ago.

Loren and Hank wander by, see Jake sitting there alone.

LOREN
Don't tell me you got stood up,
Jake.

JAKE
'course not. She's a little late,
is all.

HANK
Fall is a little late; Gilda St.
Clair ain't comin'.

Hank and Loren walk off, chortling over Jake's discomfort. The
minute they are out of sight, Jake stands up, hands the flowers
to Grace and walks off. Grace is surprised by his
uncharacteristic gesture.



17.


INT. HOMESTEAD - NIGHT ONE 22

Gilda is still holding court, although the party has moved from
the table to the fireplace. Gilda has a cup of tea. Sully and
Max are not there, but Mike, Colleen and Brian sit in rapt
attention. The table has been cleared. The birthday cake is
on the table, candles in it, not lit.

GILDA
...there we were, snowed in at St.
Moritz, me with a command
performance to give for King
William II of Wurttemberg, and no
possible way of getting to
Stuttgart on time.

COLLEEN
What'd you do?

GILDA
What could I do? I broke open the
caviar and champagne.

She laughs at her own joke, but her audience, aware of but
unaccustomed to the champagne life style, just look at her.
Mike steps in to save face for Gilda:

MIKE
You've led such an interesting
life.

BRIAN
Think I could interview you? For
the Gazette?

Colleen doesn't want her little brother to impose.

COLLEEN
Brian, Miss St. Clair is gonna be
very busy --

GILDA
No, no, never too busy for the
press.

Brian runs for his "cub reporter" pad before she has a chance
to change her mind.

GILDA
I always say, 'Love the press --

She starts to cough, tries to talk through it:

GILDA
-- and the press --

She's coughing hard enough that she cannot keep speaking.

(CONTINUED)


17A.


CONTINUED: 22

COLLEEN
Are you all right?

(CONTINUED)


18.


CONTINUED: (2) 22

Gilda waves her off, even as she's coughing.

MIKE
(to Colleen)
Perhaps you could make some more
tea.

Colleen runs to do just that, but Gilda recovers before she's
even out of the room.

GILDA
I'm fine. I'm fine. Now, where
was I?


EXT. BARN - NIGHT ONE 23

Sully is bringing the trunk from the barn to the house. It has
a brightly colored ribbon around it. Max meets him.

MAX
Ah, Mr. Sully, let me give you a
hand with that.

As he helps Sully carry the trunk.

MAX
I understand you're the man to see
about bagging a bear.

SULLY
'Baggin' a bear?'

MAX
I'd like to have one of those
stuffed brutes for my office in
New York City. All the better if
I shot it myself. How much would
you charge to find me one?

SULLY
Not my line of work.

MAX
Come, come, Mr. Sully. Every man
has his price. Why don't you just
tell me what yours is and save us
some time.

SULLY
I don't have a price.

They exit toward the house.



19.


INT. HOMESTEAD - NIGHT ONE 24

Gilda is sipping from her new cup of tea. Colleen urges her to
tell another story. Brian is poised, pen in hand, to write
everything down.

COLLEEN
Tell Ma about the time you met
Ralph Waldo Emerson. He's her
favorite writer.

But Sully and Max come in and interrupt the moment.

SULLY
Happy birthday, Colleen.

Colleen looks up at the trunk as Sully puts it down in front of
her. Colleen is in awe of it.

COLLEEN
Oh, my gosh, it's beautiful.

BRIAN
Sully and Matthew built it. I
sanded and oiled the wood. Ma did
the linin'. Then Robert E burned
your initials in.

Colleen is touched by this gift of love from her family.

BRIAN
Look inside.

Colleen feels the lining and then sees an envelope sitting in
the top tray. She takes it out, opens it up. We can see
several bills (money) inside the envelope.

COLLEEN
(impressed)
Twenty-five dollars?

MIKE
It's from your Grandmother. She
thought it might help with school
expenses... and a little something
left over for a birthday gift.

SULLY
There's something else -- under
the tray.

Colleen lifts the tray and sees a beautiful dress. She takes
it out.

MIKE
Emma made it.

(CONTINUED)


20.


CONTINUED: 24

COLLEEN
It's beautiful. Thank you,
everybody. This is the best
birthday ever.

Gilda's voice cuts through the warm, loving feeling in the
room.

GILDA
I'm mortified.

The attention shifts back to Gilda.

GILDA
I didn't bring you a present and
I'm absolutely appalled with
myself.

COLLEEN
That's all right. There's no need
--

A solution pops into Gilda's head. She raises her arm to
silence Colleen. Then, dramatically, silently, she unclasps
the necklace she is wearing.

GILDA
Please accept this necklace as my
gift.

She hands the necklace to Colleen. It is too expensive and
completely inappropriate for a college girl.

GILDA
The Prince of Wales gave it to me
the day I was presented at court
and I would love for you to have
it.

Which gets a big reaction from everyone there.

COLLEEN
(stunned)
I couldn't take --

MIKE
No, that's far too --

GILDA
I insist. I want you to wear it
every birthday and remember me.

Colleen holds the necklace. It is breathtaking. She wants it
desperately, yet knows it isn't right to accept. Colleen looks
to Mike, who relents and nods, slightly. Colleen puts the
necklace on.

(CONTINUED)


20A.


CONTINUED: (2) 24

She stands up and turns a little so everyone can see it.

(CONTINUED)


21.


CONTINUED: (3) 24

She's as proud of her dazzling jewels as anyone could be.

COLLEEN
(to Mike)
What do you think?

GILDA
It's you!

Colleen feels like a Princess in a fairy tale.

Sully and Mike exchange a look and then: MOVE IN ON MIKE, who
is particularly concerned, and:

FADE OUT.

EXT. HOMESTEAD - DAY TWO 26

Colleen is sitting on the porch, her school books with her.
She's trying to do a trigonometry problem. She struggles with
it, puts her pencil down, looks up and sighs. Mike comes up
from her garden, finishing putting some herbs in a bag.
Colleen sees (or hears) her and starts working the problem
again, pretending there's nothing wrong.

MIKE
(surprised)
Colleen! I didn't hear you come
out.

COLLEEN
I thought I'd catch up on some
school work.

Mike moves over by her to see what it is.

MIKE
Trigonometry. How are you doing
with it?

COLLEEN
(evasive)
All right, I guess. Some of the
other girls already had it so it's
easier for them.

MIKE
I'd be happy to go through it with
you, if you'd like.

Colleen doesn't want Mike to know just how adrift she is on the
subject.

COLLEEN
Maybe later.
(changing the
subject)
I didn't see Andrew in town
yesterday. Where is he?

(CONTINUED)


23.


CONTINUED: 26

MIKE
He went back to Boston.

COLLEEN
(upset)
He went back?

From Colleen's reaction, Mike realizes that she hasn't given
her daughter enough information. With a smile:

MIKE
To tell his Uncle he won't be
working for him. He's decided to
settle in Colorado Springs.

Colleen can't stop the pleasure from showing all over her face.

COLLEEN
He is?

MIKE
As a matter of fact, I'm going out
today to see a patient he operated
on before he left. Why don't you
come with me, we can talk about
school and all your new friends --

COLLEEN
-- I told Becky I'd come out to
see her this morning.

MIKE
Oh. All right.

COLLEEN
But if you need me -- for anything
--

MIKE
No, no. This is your free time.
I want you to enjoy yourself.

Brian comes out of the house. Colleen feels she's let Mike
down. Mike notices and lets Colleen off the hook.

MIKE
You could deliver this bag of
herbs to Mrs. Nelson for her
arthritis, if you like. It's on
the way to Becky's.

COLLEEN
I'd be happy to.

(CONTINUED)


24.


CONTINUED: (2) 26

BRIAN
Race ya to town!

Colleen leaps to the challenge. She takes the herbs from Mike
and runs after him. Mike smiles, happy to see her children
being children.

EXT. THE GAZETTE - DAY TWO 29

Gilda St. Clair is looking over the program Dorothy has just
printed up for the concert. Dorothy notices the parasol Gilda
is carrying.

DOROTHY
That's a beautiful parasol.

GILDA
(smiling at her)
Isn't it sweet? These parasols
are de rigeur on the continent.

Dorothy isn't a hundred percent sure of all the words, but the
meaning comes through to her. She wants to show that she knows
about such things.

DOROTHY
I believe Michaela's sisters were
talkin' about that when they were
here. Said the parasol protected
the skin, kept it soft.

GILDA
I'm never without one. You know,
I have my own personal line of
parasols at your Mercantile. You
might want to take a look at them.

DOROTHY
I will.

Gilda turns her attention back to the program.

GILDA
Now, the programs.

DOROTHY
Yes?

(CONTINUED)


25.


CONTINUED: 29

GILDA
They are stunning. As nice as any
I've ever seen.

DOROTHY
(flattered, but also
genuinely pleased)
Thank you.

GILDA
There is just one minor, little
detail I wonder if you would be so
good as to change for me.

DOROTHY
Certainly.

GILDA
The order of the songs.

Dorothy looks over the program, aghast. Did she get it wrong?
No:

DOROTHY
That's the order your manager gave
me.

GILDA
I know. Poor Max. He tries, but
he doesn't always think of what's
best for my voice. I need certain
songs to warm up, others to
stretch the chords, and so forth
and so on. You understand.

DOROTHY
The only thing is -- I already
printed up the whole batch. I'd
have to throw all these out, start
over --

GILDA
(understanding)
And that could be expensive.

DOROTHY
(hates to admit it,
but it is:)
Well --

GILDA
Don't you worry one iota about the
money. Just bill it to me.

She picks up the program and looks at it again.

(CONTINUED)


26.


CONTINUED: (2) 29

GILDA
We should start with "Ah, Leave Me
Not To Pine", then segue to...

She is interrupted by Jake, who joins them.

JAKE
Miss St. Clair --

GILDA
Mr. Mayor!
(suddenly
remembering)
Oh -- no -- ! Dinner. At seven.

JAKE
(giving her an out)
I figured something must've come
up.

GILDA
(not taking it)
No. I forgot. And I'm absolutely
appalled with myself. You must
let me make it up to you. Lunch?
Today?

JAKE
You don't hafta --

GILDA
I insist. Shall we say noon?
(on his hesitation)
-- just the two of us?

JAKE
All right. Sure.

It's sounding better and better to Jake. Behind him we see:


+ANGLE - COLLEEN AND BRIAN 30

riding into town.


+ANGLE - TO INCLUDE GILDA, JAKE AND DOROTHY 31

GILDA
Colleen!

She turns back to Dorothy, hands her the sheet.

GILDA
We can go over this later.

Gilda starts off, calling back to Jake, on the run:

(CONTINUED)


27.


CONTINUED: 31

GILDA
Don't forget! Noon!

She hurries off to catch up with Colleen, who is dismounting.
Brian rides on to the General Store.


+ON GILDA AND COLLEEN 32

GILDA
I'm so glad I ran into you. You
must come with me.

COLLEEN
I have to make a delivery for Dr.
Mike --

GILDA
This won't take five minutes. I
need your advice. It's terribly
important.

We can see that Colleen is being swayed...


INT. GENERAL STORE - DAY TWO 33

At the GILDA ST. CLAIR merchandise display, Loren is writing up
a sale of Gilda's soap while he gives Brian a quote. Emma is
in the corner of the store doing some needlework.

LOREN
I remember it like it was
yesterday. Miss St. Clair looked
at me as she passed by. Our eyes
locked. Time stopped. I said
"Hello." She smiled. I could
tell she wanted to say somethin'
to me, but then she forced herself
to move on -- and in an instant,
she was gone.

Brian writes it all down.


OMITTED (34) 34


+ANGLE - COLLEEN AND GILDA 34A

come into the store. Loren almost goes into shock. "She" is
in his store. Gilda doesn't even see him. Colleen speaks
loudly enough for everyone to hear.

(CONTINUED)


28.


CONTINUED: 34A

COLLEEN
Emma! Miss St. Clair wants to
talk to you!

EMMA
What?

Other people in the store turn around at the news, also. Gilda
St. Clair? Talk to Emma? Whatever about? (PROD. NOTE: The
townswomen, up to now, have been very condescending to Emma,
refusing to buy from her even though Michaela has given her
business. It's important to see their attitude change over the
course of the script.)

GILDA
The dress you made for Colleen was
so soigne. How long would it take
you to make a gown for me. For
the concert.

The women in the store are astonished at Gilda's choice of
Emma.

EMMA
(stunned)
For the concert -- ?

GILDA
I realize it's short notice. If
you have to work around the clock,
I'll pay whatever it costs.

EMMA
I'll need to take your
measurements.

GILDA
We can do that in my room at the
boarding house.

As Emma collects her tape measure, paper and pencil, Gilda
launches into an explanation.

GILDA
I walked over to the meadow today
and I was appalled. Behind the
stage -- nothing but green. Green
hills, green trees -- green,
green, green.

Emma looks at Colleen. She doesn't understand Gilda's point.

(CONTINUED)


29.


CONTINUED: (2) 34A

GILDA
The gown I brought to wear for the
concert is green. I'll simply
disappear.

Colleen laughs.

COLLEEN
I don't see how you could ever
disappear.

Emma's ready. Gilda talks as they exit.

GILDA
No? It happened to me once
already. My Mediterranean Tour.
Come with us, while Emma takes my
measurements. I'll show you my
scrapbook.

As they pass Loren. By now he has steeled himself for his
second "conversation" with Gilda St. Clair.

LOREN
(to Gilda, for the
second time in his
life)
Hello.

She looks at him curiously (why is he saying hello to her?),
flashes her "star" smile at him, then sweeps past him and
exits.


+ANGLE ON BRIAN 34B

watching Loren watch Gilda St. Clair.


INT. GILDA'S ROOM - DAY TWO 35

Colleen is looking at the scrap book, Emma is finishing up
taking measurements.

COLLEEN
(looking at a
postcard in the
scrapbook)
It's so beautiful.

GILDA
Greece? The temple of Athena is -
- majestic. She was the Goddess
of Wisdom, you know. And a patron
of the arts.

(CONTINUED)


30.


CONTINUED: 35

COLLEEN
I wish I could go to some of the
places you've been.

GILDA
But you can.

Colleen looks up at her.

GILDA
I've been giving this some
thought. I need someone to travel
with me, answer my correspondence,
help me with my wardrobe. You
would get to see the world, and I
would have the benefit of your
delightful companionship.

Colleen is flabbergasted. Emma looks at Colleen, wide-eyed.

EMMA
Colleen -- !

GILDA
What do you say?

COLLEEN
I don't know -- I --

GILDA
You don't have to decide right
this minute. I don't need to know
until after the concert.

Colleen is in a daze, thinking about this life-changing
decision she needs to make by day after tomorrow.


EXT. LIVERY - DAY 36

Robert E and Max are in front of the livery. Sully is riding
into town from the direction of the railroad. At the
Mercantile, CLOUD DANCING is loading supplies into a wagon.
Max and Robert E walk toward the railroad.

MAX
-- fella by the name of "Pullman."
He takes railroad cars and gussies
them all up inside, like a regular
hotel room. Fancy pull-down bed
and everything.

ROBERT E
I'm sure I could do it, but it'll
run you a lot of money.

(CONTINUED)


31.


CONTINUED: 36

MAX
You let me worry about the
expense. You just do what it
takes to make her happy.

As they meet Sully:

MAX
Ah! Mr. Sully!

Sully stops to talk to them.

MAX
I found me a guide. The gentleman
who owns the Saloon...

SULLY
Hank?

MAX
We leave at dawn tomorrow to track
down my bear.

Sully is not happy to hear that news.

MAX
(to Robert E)
Let's take a look at the car.
I'll show you what I mean.

Sully watches them as they walk off. He rides over to Cloud
Dancing, dismounts.

SULLY
(annoyed)
Man wants to shoot a bear so he
can put it in his office.

Cloud Dancing takes in the information.

CLOUD DANCING
It would be best if you went with
him.

SULLY
Already told him I wasn't
interested. Hank's takin' 'im.

CLOUD DANCING
With Hank, he will find and kill a
bear.
(beat)
It would be best if you went with
him.

(CONTINUED)


32.


CONTINUED: (2) 36

Sully nods, understanding what Cloud Dancing's talking about,
but not yet convinced he should do it. Cloud Dancing gets up
onto the wagon and starts out of town.


EXT. GRACE'S - DAY TWO - CLOSE ON JAKE AND GILDA 37

Gilda, in high spirits again, is telling Jake stories about her
life. He doesn't look like he's having a good time.

CAMERA starts to pull out to eventually reveal Colleen, Brian,
Dorothy, Matthew, Emma, Hank and some of his girls. Everyone
is having a lively, good time, except, of course, poor Jake.
Brian is scribbling notes as Gilda talks.

GILDA
There I was, in the middle of a
rebellion. Max had disappeared on
some wild-eyed quest. These
terrifying men with rifles were
yelling at me in Cantonese...

COLLEEN
(awed)
You speak Cantonese?

GILDA
(a laugh; "silly me")
No.
(back to her story)
Well, I didn't know whether I
should break into song or run for
my life.

She laughs; they all laugh. All except Jake. Grace brings a
bill over and hands it to him. He looks at it and nearly
faints. They have a whispered conversation about it:

JAKE
(sotto voce)
I ain't payin' this.

GRACE
(sotto voce)
You told me you were buyin' lunch.

JAKE
(sotto voce)
That's when it was just me and
her.

GILDA
Oh, Grace, is that the bill? Just
send it to me. I'll take care of
it.

(CONTINUED)


33.


CONTINUED: 37

HANK
You gonna let a woman pay for your
lunch, Jake?

JAKE
She's the one who invited all
these people.

As Grace walks off with the bill, Colleen notices a wagon
coming into town.


+COLLEEN'S POINT OF VIEW 37A

An ELDERLY LADY and her grown SON are coming into town.


+RESUME ANGLE 37B

Colleen is surprised. Brian turns to her:

BRIAN
Ain't that the Nelson's wagon?

Colleen suddenly remembers, everything. She stands up
abruptly.

COLLEEN
Mrs. Nelson's arthritis! I
forgot!

She starts running after the wagon. Gilda calls after her.

GILDA
Colleen! I was just getting to
the best part!

Colleen doesn't respond, she just keeps going.


EXT. CLINIC - DAY 37C

As Colleen comes running up to the Clinic, Mrs. Nelson's son is
helping his mother through the door. Mike is outside, behind
him. She turns and looks at Colleen, concerned, a bit upset.

MIKE
Colleen -- what happene
