The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle

Synopsis: In 1911, Vernon Castle, minor comic in a stage revue, pursues the leading lady to a New Jersey beach...where, instead, he meets stage-struck Irene Foote. A few misadventures later, they're married; at Irene's insistence, they abandon comedy to attempt a dancing career, which attempt only lands them in Paris without a sou.

- That was fine.

Yes, sir that certainly was fine.

Thanks very much.

Do you really mean it

or you're just saying it?

No, really, I mean, you gave it quite

a professional touch... here and there.

Here and there?

I mean everywhere.

It was very nice.

Now, if you'll excuse me,

you see my train...

Oh, I see.

I'm sorry, I wish I can stay

and see it again.

- But I'm afraid...

- You afraid to see it again?

- Not at all.

- You don't wanna see it again?

- What the young man means is that...

- Hubert...

...let Mr. Castle decide.

- I would like to, but I must go.

- You'd like to see it again?

- Walter, he didn't say that.

- The man said...

- No, he didn't.

- I'd like to see it again, except my train...

- No trouble at all.

Now Walter,

not unless Mr. Castle wants to.

- I knew he didn't.

- I do.

Well, all right.

There's a possibility

you may catch the 8:15.

I understand every one of your criticisms,

except for one you sort of mumble.

Oh, that one.

- What does "ham" mean?

- That's just an expression.

Well, what does it mean?

In the theater we speak

of certain actors as hams.

Well, that makes me feel

so professional.

- Am I a real ham?

- Well, yes you're a little ham.

Oh, wonderful.

And after the way we ran.

Come Josephine

In my flying machine

Going up all on


Come Josephine

In my flying machine

Going up she goes

Up she goes

Balance yourself like

A bird on a beam

In the air she goes

There she goes

Up, up a little bit higher

Oh, my moon is on fire

Come Josephine

In my flying machine

Going up

All on


- Come on.

- Come on.

Go it, Vernon.

You didn't tell me

you can dance like that.

- You're marvelous.

- Thanks.

- Goodbye.

- Goodbye.

All aboard. Go ahead, kiss her.

Next Sunday is a long way off.
