dropped off at the newsstand.

ED:

This is the big moment...!

Ed opens the paper to the entertainment page.

INSERT - THE NEWSPAPER. Ed turns to a column, "The Theatrical

Life, By Victor Crowley." Under this is a photograph of an old

man with an ascot.

WIDE:

Everybody excitedly crowds around and starts reading. A
