ANTHONY BRIDEWELL, a man of the world, (b)

impeccably attired in the latest fashion,

welcomes Filby the only way he knows, by

lifting his glass of whiskey.

WALTER KEMP, a middle aged man with keen (c)

black piercing eyes, angrily chews on

his Havana.

Filby fidgets uncomfortably in his chair (d)


Hillyer glances impatiently at his (e)

watch, comparing time with a GRAND-

FATHER CLOCK behind him, then snaps

it shut and glares at:


Conspicuously unoccupied.


Reaching the hour of eight, it begins to STRIKE ITS

YELLOW CHIMES. Other timepieces JOIN IN the announce-



The men look at each other until the CHIMES, BELLS

ETC. FADE away. Dr. Hillyer angrily slaps on the

arm of his leather chair.

Bridewell, filling his glass, is trying to say some-

thing but is interrupted by

KEMP (unscrews the cigar from

his tight lips)

time! If he's not coming, I've any

number of more important things to do.

door quietly behind her. With an envelope in her

hand she stands there, hesitating.
