I CAN'T SEE HOW YOU CAN MAKE

A STUPID STATEMENT LIKE THAT.

NOTHING STUPID ABOUT IT.

IT HAPPENS TO BE A FACT.

THE OLD-TIMERS

WERE MUCH BETTER.

YOU MEAN TO TELL ME

THERE HASN'T BEEN A BALLPLAYER

SINCE TY COBB?

THAT'S WHAT I SAID.

WHO'S BEEN PLAYING THE GAME,

THEN, FOR THE LAST 25 YEARS?

OH, A BUNCH

OF OVERGROWN SANDLOTTERS.

ROUTINE HEART ATTACK.

THE GUY HAD BEEN DEAD ABOUT EIGHT HOURS.

I'LL MAKE OUT THE REPOR LATER.

BABE RUTH WAS A SANDLOTTER?

RUTH WAS:

A FAIR COUNTRY BALLPLAYER.

WHAT ABOUT PITCHERS?

I HAVEN'T HEARD OF ONE

SINCE WALTER JOHNSON.

WHERE YOU BEEN BURIED?

HOW ABOUT HUBBELL, LEFTY GROVE,

DIZZY DEAN, FELLER?

WHO DID THEY PITCH AGAINST?

OH, NOBODY.

I'M GONNA CALL THE COPS.

SERGEANT HENRY.

TO HEAR THAT YOU FEEL

THAT WAY ABOUT HIM.

THERE'S BEEN SOME TROUBLE

A GREAT FOOTBALL PLAYER

SINCE JIM THORPE.

WELL, NAME ME ONE.

GENTLEMEN, THE PEOPLE

OVER AT THE HAWAIIAN CLUB

ARE WAITING:

FOR A LITTLE LAW AND ORDER.

RED GRANGE, THE FOUR HORSEMEN,

SID LUCKMAN, TOMMY HERMAN.

NEVER HEARD OF THEM.

WHAT NEWSPAPERS DO YOU READ?

THERE HASN'T BEEN

A GOOD NEWSPAPER

SINCE:

THE OLD NEW YORK WORLD.

HAWAIIAN CLUB.

USE THE WHISTLE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN

THE WINTERS AREN'T AS COLD

AS THEY USED TO BE?

WHAT ABOUT THAT BLIZZARD

THAT SWEPT THE COUNTRY

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO?

WELL, I'LL ADMI IT WAS A LITTLE CHILLY.

YEAH.

BALEY, YOU KNOW

HOW HARD WE TRY:

TO KEEP THIS A NICE,

QUIET PLACE.

WASN'T ANYTHING MUCH -

A LITTLE ARGUMENT OVER A GIRL.

BOTH OF THE BOYS

HAD BEEN DRINKING.

HOW IS HE?

HE'S STILL OUT.

THIS IS DR. MASTERSON.

HE HAPPENED TO BE IN THE CLUB.

I'VE CALLED

FOR AN AMBULANCE.

MUST HAVE HIT HIS HEAD

WHEN HE WENT DOWN.

WELL, WHERE'S THE STRONG HEAR WHO DID IT?

YOU THE GUY WHO SLUGGED

THAT FELLOW?

IT WAS JUST AN ARGUMENT.

THIS FELLOW WALKED UP

WHILE WE WERE DANCING

AND STARTED MAKING

SOME REMARKS.

ABOUT HER?

YEAH.

I DIDN'T HAVE NOTHIN'

TO DO TO WITH IT.

I WANT TO SEE MY LAWYER.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

YVONNA DARE.

SOUNDS LIKE:

A CHEAP PERFUME.

WELL, FELLA, YOU BETTER

COME ALONG WITH US. YOU TOO.

I DIDN'T LAY A GLOVE

ON THE GUY!

I WAS:

AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER!

YOU'RE NOT GOING

TO THE DEATH CELL -

JUST TO THE POLICE STATION.

Masterson:
CHECK

ON THAT AMBULANCE, WILL YOU?

HOW'S IT COMING, DOC?

HIS PULSE IS VERY WEAK.

WELL, DO WHAT YOU CAN.

YOU TAKE HIM ON DOWN, BALEY.

I'LL ROUND UP SOME WITNESSES.

I GOT MY RIGHTS!

I WANT A LAWYER!

YVONNE, COME ALONG

LIKE A NICE LITTLE GIRL

BEFORE I REMEMBER THAT I SAW YOU

IN THE LINEUP TWO WEEKS AGO.

NOW, THEN, KIDDIES,

I WANT TO HEAR:

THE WHOLE STORY.

NO, NO, NO, FRED,

IT'S PURE ROUTINE.

I KNOW IT WAS MITCHELL'S SON.

THAT'S THE REASON

I TOOK OVER MYSELF.

I DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE.

I'M DISTRICT ATTORNEY!

CALL ME AT 5:
00.

I'LL GIVE YOU A STATEMENT THEN.

KEEP THE PAPERS OFF MY NECK

FOR A WHILE, EDDIE.

MITCHELL'S A BIG MAN

POLITICALLY.

HAD TO PAY HIM PERSONALLY.

SEND THE GIRL IN.

RIGHT. THE GIRL.

OKAY, SISTER,

IT'S YOUR TURN.

I WANT A LAWYER.

I'M A LAWYER.

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I'VE GOT MY RIGHTS!

SURE, YOU HAVE.

SIT DOWN.

I'VE GOT A DAUGHTER

YOUR AGE,

AND THE ONLY THING

LEGS MEAN TO ME:

ARE SOMETHING YOU GOT TO

KEEP COVERED WITH NYLON.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

YVONNA DARE.
