7.

INT HAMLIN MUSIC ROOM SHOT (NIGHT) CLOSE

The two at the piano, as Sir James finishes reaching over

and patting Lucy's hand affectionately. After a moment she

resumes her playing. He stands watching her, then turns

thoughtfully and goes out of scene.

8.

INT. HAMLIN MUSIC ROOM (NIGHT) CLOSE SHOT

By arched entrance to hall, as Sir James comes thoughtfully

in and pulls a long bell-cord. A butler enters. With a look

off toward Lucy, Sir James gives a quiet order to the

butler.

TITLE:

"Have my secretary come here."

BACK TO SCENE:
The butler exits. Sir James looks again off

toward Lucy. In a moment his secretary enters -- a young

man of the serious type, a student. Sir James asks him

quietly:

TITLE:

"Any word, Mr. Hibbs?"

BACK TO SCENE:
Hibbs is about to answer, but looks off

toward Lucy and then gets over in pantomime that perhaps

they had better step into the hall. Sir James nods. They

exit.

INT. HAMLIN HALL (NIGHT) CLOSE SHOT

Other side of doorway as Sir James and Hibbs come in. Now

Hibbs tells him earnestly:

TITLE:

"I insisted, sir, on their

searching the grounds over

at the old Balfour place--"

BACK TO SCENE:
Sir James nods gravely to this, indicating

that the secretary acted wisely, that that was the right

thing to do. Hibbs goes on.

TITLE:

"Weird things have happened

there in the last five years--

ever since Miss Lucy's father--"

BACK TO SCENE:
Sir James checks him with a gesture. Both

look off sharply down the hall.
