Arise, My Love

Synopsis: In 1939, American Tom Martin, who fought in the Spanish Civil War, awaits execution at the hands of the Fascist victors when reporter Augusta 'Gusto' Nash, for a scoop, aids him in an audacious escape. Of course, Tom tries to romance Gusto; but though she likes him, her career comes first, and Tom himself prefers freedom-fighting to settling down. Comedy becomes drama as their mixed feelings lead them on a circuitous path through the deepening chaos and catastrophe of the early days of World War II.
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance

your wife's pleadings

and as a gesture of friendship

to your native land.

Before the pardon takes effect,

you must pledge to leave Spain

and never take up arms

against her again.

Once he's out of here,

he'll never come back,

I can guarantee that.

- You promise, don't you?

- Me? Sure.

We'll have the papers drawn up.

Governor, look at his passport.

- What?

- Look what it says.

Isn't that strange?

Is this your passport

Mr. Martin?

- Your photograph?

- Looks like it.

It says "Thomas Fuller Martin,

born June 22, 1906 in Ohio".

- That's me.

- It also says...


Does it?

That's how you got abroad!

That's how you managed

to enlist!

They never would've taken him

if they'd known he was married!

- That's why he did it.

- Yes, that's why I did it.


Leaving me in New York

with back rent,

a child and another on the way.

- No...

- Tom, I hate you. I hate you!

Maybe I shouldn't have come.

We'd be better off

if they shot you.

Senora, he's a young man.

When I was his age, I ran away

to service in Spanish Morocco.

You were engaged,

but he was married.

When I think of those months,

the tears I've shed.

Yu can see why I ran away.

Always crying,

always hysterical.

Baby, with your bawling

I'd rather face the firing squad.

- You don't love me!

- Sure I do.


bring the prisoner's belongings.

I'm sure the Martins

are in a hurry to leave.

- Thank you.

- Pardon, Governor.

I'd prefer not to assist

at this scene.

Perhaps we'd better go and see

if the papers are drawn up.


- Who in blazes are you?

- Tom, darling!

Careful, if you don't want

two people shot instead of one!

- They may be listening.

- But what is this?

- You're doing me a favor.

- Doing you a favor?

I'm Augusta Nash,

from the Associated News.
