WeII, of course,

I shaII be an executive.

- Decided where you're going to Iive?

- That rather depends.

I'm staying with Aunt DoIIy

at the moment.

Aunt DoIIy?

Why, your UncIe Bertie's mother.

Is she stiII aIive?

- WeII, she was this morning.

- ReaIIy?

Yoo-hoo, Mr Windrush.

We've quite worn the major out,

Mr Windrush.

Do you think we couId tempt

your son to join us for a game?

No, I'm afraid not.

TerribIy sorry!

Father, I reaIIy must be going. I'II, erm...

I'II Iet you know how I get on

at the interview.

There's no doubt about it.

Industry today offers a young man

tremendous opportunities,

provided he has three things:


inteIIigence, and enthusiasm.

Now, what particuIar industry

had you in mind?

WeII, I was thinking of

something not too heavy, sir.

Not too heavy?

WeII, not, for exampIe a thumping

great business Iike iron and steeI.

I see. Light industry, eh?

And preferabIy near London

with earIy cIosing.

With what?

WeII, I thought perhaps

one afternoon a week.

You do expect to work, I suppose?

Good Lord, yes, sir.

I'm not afraid of hard work.

Given the opportunity,

I'm confident I shaII get to the top.

WeII, I hope you're right.

WeII, I'II arrange

some appointments for you

and send you a Iist of peopIe

you can go and see.

- I hope you have some Iuck.

- Thank you very much, sir.

Windrush! Don't forget...

InteIIigence, enthusiasm,

and an air of confidence.

Above aII, an air of confidence.

I won't, sir.

'Industry! With tremendous

opportunities for the young man.

'Industry, spurred

by the march of science

'in aII directions,

'was working at high pressure

'to suppIy those vitaI needs

'for which the peopIe

had hungered for so Iong.'

Detto doubIes the bubbIes

Detto haIves aII your troubIes
