Bluebeard

Synopsis: Baron von Sepper is an Austrian aristocrat noted for his blue-toned beard, and his appetite for beautiful wives. His latest spouse, an American beauty named Anne, discovers a vault in his castle that's filled with the frozen bodies of several beautiful women. When confronted with this slight oddity, Bluebeard explains to Anne that he found an easier alternative to divorce when he grew bored with his previous wives. In order to avoid being Bluebeard's next frozen bride, Anne must find a way to outwit her murderous hubby.

Peter, where are they now?

What's he doing?

How should I know?

Besides, what could he...

Greta!

You shouldn't

have screamed, my dove.

Oh, shut up!

Peter, they're gone!

Thank God our technical progress

is not so perfect

that things don't

occasionally go wrong.

If the lights

had not gone out tonight,

I wouldn't have had you

to myself, even for a second.

But I'm sorry that your mother

was frightened.

My mother's easily

frightened by everything.

But my father, there's a man

who gets happier as the day goes on.

By evening...

Ah, yes. Yes.

And you...

what are you like?

Me? I don't know.

I really don't.

All I know is that I'm

just happy right now,

that I could laugh with joy.

And tomorrow...

what will you be like?

Oh, tomorrow?

Tomorrow I'll probably be sad.

Then let me come

and see you tomorrow

because I want you to stay happy.

You're so beautiful, Greta.

And you.

No, no.

How long have you had it?

What?

The beard!

Oh, since the war...

only since the war.

You never shaved it off?

No, never have. Never will.

Not even for me?

- Why, don't you like it?

- I like it!

I just wonder what you

look like without it.

Oh, horrible, horrible.

Even my own mother...

Well, I was in this...

air fight and I was

shot down by the Russians,

and the plane crashed

and burst into flames,

and I was a little slow getting out.

Scar tissue and some strange

chemical reaction and...

I can't shave,

and that's why I have

this ridiculous color.

Oh, I love it. I really do.

Does it tickle?

Why don't we find out?

Why does... does it look at me like that?

Why did it attack me?

It was my mother's cat.

And now it's jealous.

But it must not be.

My baby! What happened?

What has he done to you?

It's nothing, Mother.

Your daughter is of such beauty

that even the flowers and animals

are jealous of her.

Come, we're going home!

Where's your father?

Baron, if you don't mind,

some important business.

Are you enjoying the party?

Oh, Baron,

out here things

are always wonderful,

but in the cities

where we have to live...

Don't forget,

tomorrow as happy as tonight.

Come on!

First the steel workers,

now the textile workers.

The strike's lasted a week now!

Who knows where it will end.

We could whip them in a fair fight.

But they've behaved like cowards.

Infltrate the workers.

Order's what we need.

Law and order.

You should hear

them talking about unions,

production reports,

their right to a share of...

Men who can't tell

wine from champagne.

The trouble is, my dear Baron,

that some Bolshevik ideas

have managed to get through

even to the fathers.

Order's what we need! Order!

What we really need

is a man like you.

Everyone respects you.

You are a war hero.

They know you're a brave man

with no axe to grind.

You could straighten out

the whole problem.

Order's what we need. Law and order.

Perhaps if you spoke to them

and reminded them that they must

show respect for the law,

respect for traditions.

Speak to them?

Let's not lose our heads,

my dear fellows.

I don't think

that speaking to them

is what's called for.

One must find the correct

solution to each problem.

They are coming!

Even our lord bows down

before your beauty, my darling.

Darling?

Darling?

Darling, please come on.

It's our second anniversary.

The guests expect a great hunt.

After all the due ascertainment

demanded by the law,

this office declares that the death

of the Baroness

Greta Von Sepper,

resident of this district,

was caused by a tragic hunting error.

And therefore,

the Von Sepper case
