Hail, Caesar!

Synopsis: In the early 1950s, Eddie Mannix is busy at work trying to solve all the problems of the actors and filmmakers at Capitol Pictures. His latest assignments involve a disgruntled director, a singing cowboy, a beautiful swimmer and a handsome dancer. As if all this wasn't enough, Mannix faces his biggest challenge when Baird Whitlock gets kidnapped while in costume for the swords-and-sandals epic "Hail, Caesar!" If the studio doesn't pay $100,000, it's the end of the line for the movie star.

GLORIA:

Can’t a girl take a few pitchas,

have a few laughs? Cheez, Eddie,

what a old stick-in-the-mud!

She giggles.

Whap! He slaps her.

She looks at him, stunned, then starts weeping.

He slaps her again.

Outside the sirens wind down and we hear car doors open.

EDDIE:

Now you listen to me. You were at a

party, you had too much to drink,

somebody brought you here, you

don’t remember who. You’re going

home now and your name is Mary Jo

Scheinbrotte.

She blubbers:

GLORIA:

Okay, Eddie.

The front door opens and two uniformed cops enter.

COP ONE:

Hello, Mannix, saw your heap

outside.

COP TWO:

Got a call. Loud, disorderly...

He looks around, sniffs.

... Possible French postcard

situation.

EDDIE:

Someone was pulling your leg. Mary

Jo here was just at a costume

party. It’s not really her dirndl.

5.

He fishes a wad from his pocket and peels off some bills.

... She wants to contribute

something to your pension fund.

Sorry to drag you out in the rain.

COP ONE:

Well, say, no trouble at all.

Cop Two is looking hard at the girl.

COP TWO:

Aren’t you Gloria DeLamour?

GLORIA:

No no, I'm Mary Jo... somethin'.

EDDIE:

Scheinbrotte. Look, Brian...

Eddie hesitates, looking at one of the cops who is smoking.

We hear, distantly but growing louder, a deep thumping sound.

EDDIE (CONT’D)

Can I, uh... bum a cigarette?

The thumping sound has grown closer: the tramp of many

marching feet. A fanfare on ancient horns as we cut to:

EXT. THE OLD APPIAN WAY - DAY

Down the road a Roman legion marches in brilliant

Technicolor, the sound of its stamping feet bridging the cut.

Cypress trees, regularly planted, stretch along either side

of the road to the horizon. The title of the movie fades into

superimposition:
