The White Angel script
Synopsis: The White Angel is a 1936 American historical drama film directed by William Dieterle and starring Kay Francis. The film depicts Florence Nightingale's pioneering work in nursing during the Crimean War.

There is a sudden flash of white light as we see the nearby

photographer (LANCE)

14 INT DAY CARTERS OFFICE (CRIME SCENE) - The photo of the screaming woman

is on the desk, the logo CRIME SCENE emblazoned across it...ELLEN

CARTER looks at it as she picks up the ringing phone...


Hello CRIME SCENE - yes, that's me...

LANCE the camera man brushes past, rubbing intimately with CARTER - she

shrugs him off angrily, she isn't going to take any shit from him!

LANCE laughs to himself before moving over to SALLY's desk, a young

secretary. He sits on it before giving CARTER a knowing look and turns

his attentions to SALLY - CARTER's eyes roll back in her head.


No - I'm sorry I haven't made my

payments - Friday - Fine - OK?

CARTER watches LANCE as he pesters SALLY - She has a thought. She picks

up her Polaroid camera and focuses on the two - she presses the button

and the photo comes out. She looks at it smiling as it develops.


No - I wont use the card... Fine...

Thank you - goodbye...

She replaces the phone and stands - she walks over to ANDY'S desk, a

young office worker. She passes him the photo...


Could you do me a colour photocopy of

this now?



ANDY looks at it and smiles...

CARTER heads for DEZEREA's OFFICE, editor of CRIME SCENE and owner of


15 INT DAY DEZERAE'S OFFICE - There is a tap on the door and CARTER

enters. DEZERAE'S office is in stark contrast with the explosion of

paperwork outside. It's posh, clean and VERY organised.

The walls have framed covers from the the magazines she owns, CRIME


an odd mixture of exclusive designerisms and seedy exploitation.
