Cassandra's Dream

Synopsis: Two London brothers are hard-up for cash, and both have girls to look out for, too. When rich Uncle Howard comes to town and agrees to help them out, he admits his finances are under investigation, and he asks them to do him a favor and "take care of" an old business relation to keep his trouble under wraps - he says that they're family, and since he always takes care of them, the least they could do is help him out this once, as they're the only ones he can trust. The film follows their struggle with the immorality of this request and how each brother chooses to deal with it.

And now he's a millionaire

with top-class clients...

and yet he never

forgot his family.

Let that be a lesson to you.

In the end, all you have in this

life that you can count on is family.

And don't you forget it.

- I got us the rest of the money.

- What?

We can pay off the boat. Plus, some left over for

the barometer you wanted to buy for the cabin.

- How?

- Two of my little doggies came in.

- No.

- Yep. First and fifth race, I won both.

We can finish by the weekend. We can

take her out for a maiden voyage Saturday.

What are we going to call her? We have to

call her something if we're taking her out.

- Cassandra's Dream. That

was the 60-to-1 shot I hit.

- 60-to-1?


Yeah. It's a lucky name.

Have a good weekend.

Do you want to come out for

a ride on Cassandra's Dream?

What's Cassandra's Dream?

My brother and I bought this

beat-up boat and fixed it up.

We're going out on it tomorrow. And he's taking

his girl and I wondered if you'd like to come?

- Yeah, I'd love to. Sounds good.

- The weather's meant to be great.

#Wherever I may roam #

- #Through land or sea or foam #

- Oh, nice harmony.

- #You will always hear me singing this song #

- # Ba da boo #

- # Show me the way to go home #

- # Ba ba ba #

# Show me the way to go home #

# I'm tired and I want to go to bed #

# I had a little drink about an hour ago

and it's gone right to my head #

- Ohh!

- #Wherever I may roam #

#Through land or sea or foam #

#You will always hear me

singing this song #

# Show me the way to go home ##

Nice one. I'll drink to that.

Gee, ain't life grand?

You know where that's from? What movie?

- Ain't Life Grand, no?

- Bonnie and Clyde.

Two Barrow brothers having a fine time

and Clyde says, "Ain't life grand?"
