Blood Money

Synopsis: Bill Bailey is a Los Angeles bail bondsman who lives in a world of complete, casual corruption, where all he has to do is pick up the phone to get the charges against a client dismissed. He falls in love with slumming socialite who bluntly and startlingly declares her sexual preferences with this immortal line: "If I could find a man who would be my master and give me a good thrashing, I'd follow him around like a dog on a leash."
Director(s): Rowland Brown
Production: United Artists

- When d'ya get out?

- 2 weeks ago.

- Drove here Friday from Detroit.

- Have a cigar. - Thanks.

There were no suckers there,

so here I am.

Drury still thinks suckers are

guys that ride around in town cars.

We're all chumps for somebody.

You for Bill

and me for a cutie down at the bar.

What you mean is

a piece of plain, French pastry.

This one has nothing but class.

Wears a monocle and a man's tuxedo.

- Then you're safe.

- That's just where you're wrong.

She dresses that way for laughs.

Got a great sense of humour.

See you later, Sis.

So long, Bill.

So long.

- Fix the tie.

Mr. Drury, you're always in a hurry.

Because I'm a guy

what takes his time.

I've done a better job

raising you than I have him.

I'm not as much worry

with the girls as Drury is.

Oh yes you are.

But you always came back.

Ruby, I could never

get stuck on any girl but you.

I like you a lot tonight.

- Just like a little boy.

- A nice boy?


The kind that writes dirty words

on the sidewalk with chalk.

I used to do that.

Did you ever draw a big heart on

the sidewalk with an arrow through it?

- And write underneath

Lil loves Mary? - No!

Weren't you ever romantic?

Can you imagine a guy

getting romantic in a reform school?

This girl outside

wants to leave this ring as collateral.

- What's she in for?

- Grand theft.

- How much is her bail?

- 1,500.

But this ring is worth six grand.

How do you do.

I'm Mr. Bailey.

- May I have your name please?

- Jane Smith

Jane Smith?

I've never been so embarrassed

in my life. This charge is

so absolutely ridiculous,

I just can't discuss it.

- May I use your phone.

- Certainly, over there in the corner.

This is Miss Talbart.

Let me speak to my father.

Society stuff.

They've got a butler.

And her real name is Talbart.
