I imagine they've taken

the phone off the hook.

After all,

isn't that what you do...

when you don't want

to be disturbed?

I'm sure they don't want

to be disturbed.

Cathryn? Cathryn, can you hear?

Cathryn, I'm talking to you

about your husband...

...about old Hugh.

How was the meeting?

A waste of time.

- Really?

- Yeah.

Jesus Christ, Cathryn.

Why are all the phones

off the hook?

Isn't that what people do when

they don't want to be disturbed?

What if I tried to reach you?

I didn't think

that was very likely.

What the hell is that

supposed to mean?

Who the hell would call

at this time of night?

Oh, thank God it's you!

- Jesus Christ, Joan!

- I've been calling all night.

It is 4:
00 in the morning.

Is Cathryn all right?

- Yes, she's all right.

- I want to talk to her.

I'll have her call you

in the morning.

Good night. Sleep tight.

Jesus Christ!

About your friends!


I want to get to the bottom

of this phone business.

And I want to know

who you were with.

What the hell is that

supposed to mean?

It means I want

to know her name.

What's the matter, baby?

Did someone call you?

Did someone telephone?

Huh? Who was it?

- Who called?

- I don't know. Some woman.

She kept phoning me and...

...telling me about you

and some girl...

Awful things that...

I don't know.

She kept ringing,

and I'd hang up...

...and she'd ring again.

Hugh, it's not true, is it?

Tell me it's not true.

Of course it isn't true.

I can prove where I was

and who I was with...

...if that will make you

feel any better.

But why would anyone

do such a thing?

I mean, she even gave me

a phone number and address.

Now, what was her name...

...this girl I was supposed

to be with?

I just kept seeing you

with this girl.

Oh, Hugh.

I want to go home.

He is consistently ranked as one of the greatest and most influential filmmakers in American cinema. more…
