Open the door, yes,

if you don't mind.

Here. I say,

I've just made tea.

That's all right, ma.

We'll get some down

at the station.

Third act

beginners, please.

Your call,

miss Baring.


miss Baring's understudy.

There you are, see?

Going on now.

You are

answering the door?

Answer the door?

Of course.

Well, I don't know

where we shall go.

Oh, Tom. Tom.

The inspector would like

to have a word with you.

This is mr. Tom Druid,


It's about the

murder, mr. Drake.

Now, there are

one or two points

I suppose you didn't

happen to see

mrs. Druce

and miss Baring

leave the theatre

together last night.

Yes, I did.

As a matter of fact,

I remarked to Fane, our

leading man, about it.

our leading man.

I assure you,


I'm not

the other woman

in the case.

I know that, mr. Fane,

but I understand you saw

the 2 women together

last night.

Yes, just before

I left the theatre,

then I went straight

to my rooms.

Yes. Well, Ion Stewart

came with me.

He came and he wanted to

borrow some cigarettes.

He'd lost his case

or something,

and then I went

straight to bed.

Say, excuse me, I'm on.

Reginald, darling,

has that cat gone yet?

Ooh, it's you,

cousin Yettie.

Don't you dare to try

to run away from me.

Come here when

I speak to you.

No, no, you don't.

That's the bathroom.

Come here,

or are you afraid

of a poor, weak woman?

He promised
