FADE IN:

Part One The HARBOR at Miami Beach FADES IN, providing

quick VIEWS of yachts, aquaplanes, and luxurious ship-craft

lying at anchor in the calm, tranquil waters of tropical

Florida. This dissolves to the NAME PLATE on the side of a

yacht, reading "ELSPETH II," and this in turn to a YACHT

CORRIDOR where a steward is standing in front of a cabin

door, near a small collapsible table upon which there is a

tray of steaming food. He lifts lids and examines the

contents. A heavy-set sailor stands guard near the cabin

door.

STEWARD:

Fine! Fine! She ought to like this.

(to the guard)

Open the door.

GUARD:

(without moving)

Who's gonna take it in to her?

You?

STEWARD:

Oh, no.

(turning)

Mullison! Come on!

The VIEW WIDENS to include MULLISON, a waiter. His eye is

decorated with a "shiner."

MULLISON:

Not me, sir. She threw a ketchup

bottle at me this morning.

STEWARD:

Well, orders are orders! Somebody's

gotta take it in.

(he turns to someone

else)

Fredericks!
