- Now you're talkin'!

Don't think you're running me out.

I'm leaving of my own free will.

I'm going where people know

it's the 20th century.

- Where there are broad minds.

- (Conductor) Aboard!

I'm going to stand on my own feet!

- Not if you miss this train, honey.

- Free from all you ostriches!

(Men laughing)

- (Laughing)

- Who are you?

- You always leave town like this?

- First time I've been carried out.

- This is my pleasure.

- Well, I can take care of myself.

You bet you can.

Ooh, Christmas!

Allow me, if I'm not

too old-fashioned.

Thank you.

Hiya, chicken! Where'd you come from?

Boys, your seats.

Here comes Kerry Nation.

(All chuckling)

There must be at least

one gentleman in this coach.

Well, this is the 20th century,

when women stand on their own feet.

(All laughing)

- Here's a seat, honey!

- Let go of me!

I hear you wanted broad horizons.

Ain't this broad enough?


Oh... thank you.

(Men muttering)

(Man) Who was that?

(Second man) Jim Gardner.


Come along.

- This IS private, isn't it?

- And very convenient.

- Sit, make yourself comfortable.

- Thank you.

Why don't you take off your hat?

(Orchestral music playing)

You have those new flat records!


"A Woman Dares".

- Oh, you know?!

- Everything.

Catherine Allen.

What shall I call you? Catherine?

Katie? Kitten, that's it.

- Kitten?

- Sure. A baby wildcat.

Well, who are you?

Just a guy opening up

some oilfields around Sapulpa.

Are you James E Gardner?

That's right.

You know, you owe a lot to me.

From the look on that fella's face

after you kissed him,

he wasn't gonna let you go,

and I don't blame him.

What's that for?

Why does a woman usually slap a man?

You are a wildcat!

I'm not as wild as you think.

- (Door thudding)

Ethel Hill

Ethel Hill (April 6, 1898, Sacramento, California – May 17, 1954, Hollywood, California) was an American screenwriter and race horse owner.When Dore Schary first went to work for Columbia Pictures as a new screenwriter, he was paired with the veteran Hill to learn from her; together, they wrote the screenplay for Fury of the Jungle (1933). Hill was described by Marc Norman in his book What Happens Next: A History of American Screenwriting as "an extremely dear and generous woman [who] had an interest in horses and often wore jodhpurs and riding gear to the studio." Perhaps her best known film is The Little Princess (1939), starring Shirley Temple. Hill bought the Thoroughbred race horse War Knight, a son of Preakness winner High Quest, as a foal "with her $1500 life savings". He went on to win 10 of 28 starts, including the 1944 Arlington Handicap. He was injured in 1945 and did not win any of his five 1946 starts leading up to the $100,000 added Santa Anita Handicap, which he proceeded to win in a photo finish. He retired to stud afterward. more…
