He leaves. Leopold stares into the mirror, snaps his fingers.

The valet hands him a glass and pours a small shot of brandy.

Leopold shoots him a look. The valet fills the glass higher.

Leopold drains the glass and heads to the doorway. He

hesitates, taking a deep breath and a long pause. Finally...

THE VALET:

(grandly)

Go spread joy.

Without looking back, Leopold leaves the room.

INT. BALLROOM - NIGHT

Music fills the air as the creme de la creme of Victorian

society gather inside. Leopold holds a prearranged dance

card. He looks at the names and finds his first partner is

MISS TREE. Leopold looks upward helplessly at an unrelenting

God.

INT. BALLROOM DANCE FLOOR - NIGHT

A profoundly self-conscious Leopold dances energetically

into frame with MISS TREE, an ancient, elfin, yet amazingly

SPRY woman who gapes up at him searchingly, unblinking.

Leopold opens his mouth to speak, can think of nothing

suitable to say, and clamps his mouth shut. They dance out

of frame.

INT. BALLROOM DANCE FLOOR - NIGHT

Leopold dances into frame with CLARA, a BEAUTIFUL girl of

19. He glances at her and smiles. She titters, turning away

shyly. They whirl around the dance floor. His smile grows

into a broad grin. Caught up in the excitement, Clara beams

up at him... happily revealing a mouth full of missing, inky

teeth.

Leopold, face frozen in a formal smile, dances on.

INT. BALLROOM DANCE FLOOR - NIGHT

Leopold lumbers into frame with MISS FAIRCHILD, a woman of

immense girth. With great dignity and extreme difficulty he

maneuvers her around the floor, looking everywhere except

her enormous bosom.

LEOPOLD:

You dance like an angel, Miss

Fairchild. You light up the room. I

thank you.
