Father thinks they're not fit

for a nice girl, dear.

But he hasn't even met

one of them.

And if he did, he'd like them.

They're sensitive musicians and

composers and poets...

...in spite of what Father thinks.

- I'll see who it is.

- Oh, thanks.

Your trouble is

you shouldn't have had a daughter.

You should have had a marble statue.

Quite right, my dear. Only, we didn't

know how to go about it.


- A guy could freeze to death.

- What are you doing here?

I called your office.

They gave me your address.

Nice of them.

You know, after I left you this morning,

I got to thinking about what you said.

- So I did it.

- Did what?

The lyric. You know, simple, what I feel.

Here, read it, Ms. LeBoy.

- What's your name?

- Gus. Gus Kahn.

Well, Mr. Kahn,

we happen to be having our dinner.

If you bring that to the office,

I'll be happy to look at it.

It's very cold and I walked a long way.

Look at it now.

- Who is it, dear?

- Just a young man I met at the office.

- Bring him into the dining room.

- He has to leave, Mother.

I don't have to leave. I'd like to come in.

- We'll be in in a minute.

- All right, dear.

Don't you ever wear a tie?

What's with you and ties?

You'd think I was naked.

Wait here. I'll get one of my father's.

You and my mother are the same.

Ties, ties. Worried about ties.

Hold still. I'll put this on.

You didn't have your hair cut either.

Maybe you could get me one

of your father's.

Come on.

This is Mr. Kahn. He's a lyric-writer.

I am not a bit surprised.

There is about him

the unmistakable aura of the poet.

- How do you do, Mr. Kahn?

- How do you do?

You'll excuse us...

Oh, I suppose you've had your dinner?

I could eat.

Bring Omar Khayym

his loaf of bread and jug of wine.
