On Moonlight Bay

Synopsis: The Winfield family moves into a new house in a small town in Indiana. Tomboy Marjorie Winfield begins a romance with William Sherman who lives across the street. Marjorie has to learn how to dance and act like a proper young lady. Unfortunately William Sherman has unconventional ideas for the time (setting is during W.W.I, but the war does not play a major part for most of the movie). His ideas include not believing in marriage or money, which causes friction with Marjorie's father, who is the local bank vice president.
Director(s): Roy Del Ruth

to hold up a train with, that's all.

- Jesse James?

- Yeah.

- You're fooling me.

- I am not.

Has he really got it?

He keeps it in a trunk in the attic.

it's got a kick like a cannon.

It'll knock you flat on your back.

Well, how about getting it

and letting me shoot it, huh?

Well, come on, how about it?


- All right. Come on.

- Come on, Max.

Well, that's fine.

Everything's off to a good start.


- Strike!

- Hey, fellas, he's hurt!

- Hey, help me get him up!

- Well, that ends the game, I guess.

Hey, you need somebody

to take his place?

- Hey, it's a girl!

- No girls in the game.

Oh, let her play. We'll have some fun.

We don't want any girls.

The game's ruined anyway.

We might as well, I guess. Here!

- Thanks, sport.

- Let's see you hit something now.

Come on, gang!

Let's see you slug it out.

Here's the one.

That's it!

Hey! That's it!

Grab your second!

- Come on!

- Come on, get over to second.

All right, now, come on, boys! Come on!

Let's go for it, boys! Bring her in!

Shorten the windup, sonny,

I'm going home.


- Hey, that was good!

- Great!

Let's see her.

Oh, I'm up.

I dare you to shoot her.

Not out here. it'll make too much noise.

- Well, let's go in the barn.

- Okay.

She won't pull.

- Bet I can pull it.

- Well, all right, you try her, then.


Wesley! What are you doing

with that gun?

Why, you could kill somebody

with this thing.

Watch it! it's cocked.

You don't have to tell me.

I'm going to fix that right now!

Jim, Mother wants you!

All right, all right. Come on.

I know you're around here somewhere.

Imagine leaving a thing like this around

where children can get their hands on it.

Marjie, be careful!

Wesley! You keep your hands

off of this gun!
