B. Monkey

Synopsis: Alan Furnace is a young man with the perfectly proper, quiet life of a London school teacher. But beneath all of that decency lies a burning desire for excitement and he just found it. She's a woman unlike any other: Unruly Irish eyes, Latin lips... her name is Beatrice, but on the streets they call her B. Monkey. She's about to take him on an outrageous, dangerous and sexy ride through the wild side of London.

Well I'm sorry Frank

I'm not available

I'm working now.

Oh come on, Monkey,you

owe me one. Sit down.

My name is Beatrice and I'm not available.

I've retired.

What are you gonna tell your

poor Mama mia in old Italia?

What's she gonna do for money?

I'm sorry I have to go.

Goodbye, Frank.


Paul? It's me.

I've just seen Frank.

I thought you were all finished

with Frank now.

We talked about it darling

You decided yourself.

He wants his half of the deal.

He's serious Paul.

Listen I don't have it darling.

I mean he can do

whatever he likes to me.

But it's not going to magically appear

all by itself is it?

Paul he'll kill you.

You might not give a f*ck about yourself

but I do OK?

Give him his money come on.

Do you really care about me Bea?

Of course I do.


That's all that really matters isn't it?

Have you seen a guy in here earlier

waiting alone?

Ah yeah the sad sack with the

bunch of flowers. He's gone.

The creation of the Quintet was an

accident like so many things are with jazz.

The eh ..Stephane was visiting Django in

his dressing room, the Claridge.

As Django was warming up

to go on stage.

Stephane casually decided

to improvise chords with him

and thus was

born the Quintet.

Hear them now as they cover a

Hudson-Mills-DeLange tune.


Stephane Grappelli with

the Hot Club in Paris.

An unlikely couple. A violinist

and a three fingered guitarist.

Some say love is like a violin.

Sadly I learned the trumpet and

I've only been to Paris on a school trip

But if I could play like that

I know who I'd be playing for.

And I know what I'd be playing.

This one is dedicated to a girl

I saw in the pub.

And it goes out to all of you

who met the love of your life sometime

somewhere, once in a street.
