REGGIE (sitting)

I admit I moved to Paris because I was

tired of American Provincial, but that

doesn't mean I'm ready for French Traditional.

I loathe the idea of divorce, Sylvie,

but -- if only Charles had been honest

with me -- that's all I ask of anybody

-- the simple truth. But with him,

everything is secrecy and lies. He's

hiding something -- something frightening

-- something terrible -- and evil.

She stops as she is aware of a weird figure hovering over

her. She wheels, terrified.

9.CLOSE SHOT -- PERUVIAN SNOW-MASK

A strange, grotesque knitted mask that completely covers

the face except for eyes, nose and mouth. The eyes inside

this particular mask stare down at REGGIE.

MAN:

Does this belong to you?

CAMERA PANS down to include JEAN-LOUIS, his hand held

firmly by the man in the mask.

10.WIDER ANGLE

Including REGGIE, MAN, SYLVIE and JEAN-LOUIS. REGGIE is

too terrified to answer. Realizing this, the man, PETER

JOSHUA, takes off the snow-mask to reveal a handsome,

tanned face.

PETER:

Oh, forgive me. (indicating JEAN-LOUIS)

Is this yours?

REGGIE (indicating SYLVIE)

It's hers. Where'd you find him, robbing

a bank?

PETER:

He was throwing snowballs at Baron

Rothschild. (a pause) We don't know

each other, do we?

REGGIE:

Why, do you think we're going to?

PETER:

I don't know -- how would I know?

REGGIE:

I'm afraid I already know a great many

people. Until one of them dies I couldn't

possibly meet anyone else.

PETER (smiling)

Yes, of course. But you will let me know

if anyone goes on the critical list

(he starts off).

REGGIE:

Quitter.

PETER (turning)

How's that?

REGGIE:

You give up awfully easy, don't you?

Eyeing one, then the other, SYLVIE sizes up the situation

and rises.
