- (Ranting continues, indistinct)

- We'll do everything we can.

The Home Secretary

is now getting impatient.

We can't make an arrest

without sufficient evidence, sir.

This man, who is he?

He's a ladies' hairdresser, sir.

We think he's using his salon as a cover.

His name is Giulio Napolitani.

- Sounds ltalian.

- Yes, sir.

- Are you watching his establishment?

- Yes, sir.

Sergeant Wilkins will be making contact

with him any moment now.

Yes, madam?

My name is Wilkins.

l have an appointment.

- Lucinda Wilkins?

- Yes.

Come this way, madam.

- Would you mind waiting a moment?

- No, not at all.


Will you come this way, please?

You seem very busy. l hope l shall get

Signor Giulio's personal attention.

Don't worry, madam, Signor Giulio

can deal with six heads at a time.

So l see.


What is this sort of person

doing in my salon?

l cannot make her beautiful.

Madonna! Ma cosa posso fare io?

Ah! Lady Hinchingford!

Giulio, darling, could l have

a teeny weeny little fringe?

What do you want a fringe for?

You have the lovely face.

Fringes are for the ladies with the longer

face, not the sweet face like this one.

Some faces, like this one,

should have the fringe down here!

Don't worry. Oberon prepare.

Giulio, he create.

What l do with this?

You may proceed as you think fit, Giulio.

For you, l create a sweep here,

a sweep there, bellissimo!

Siete la pi brutta donna che ho mai

visto in vita mia.

Ah, now, naughty, naughty!

Translation, please.

Sorry. lt mean you are beautiful.

Oh, flatterer.

Oh, you don't believe me?

Look for yourself!

Well, l do see what you mean.

Perhaps beautiful

isn't quite the right word.

Perhaps not. But Giulio, he is a genius.
