90 min


This is my boss, Jonathan Hart.

He's a millionaire. Self-made.

And this is his wife, Jennifer.

She's quite a lady.

Oh, and that's me.

My name is Max.

I take care of them,

which ain't easy,

because when they met

it was murder.

Yes, sir. It went exactly

as you planned.

I believe you're ready, sir.

A costume for

Mr. and Mrs. Hart.

If I can't beat this challenge,

I'll hang up my pin cushion.

They're all here, you know. The

greats and the near greats.

From Valentino to Dietrich,

and Chaplin and Harlow.

Those were the glory days,

when Hollywood costumes meant

style and glamour and panache.

Mr. and Mrs. Hart,

if you'll come this way.

Now, these are the showgirl

costumes I told you about,

but I don't know why

that would interest you.

Let's see now.

Where is the one...

This... This aisle has some very nice

things in it. If we just come down here...

Don't give up now,

we're just getting started.

Charles Laughton wore

this in Henry VIII.

How about this? Hedy Lamarr in

Samson and Delilah.

Perhaps it would help

if I knew what the theme was.

Oh, I don't

think there is a theme.

We're simply going to Alfred

Raine's private island in Hawaii

for the weekend,

for a costume party.

Alfred Raine? The publisher?

- Yes.

- Oh, I am impressed.

Uh, you're not one of Mr. Raine's

world famous authors are you?

Uh, not exactly, no.

Oh, well. I suppose

we'll find something.

Don't be so modest, darling.

You know the only reason

that we're going to this affair is because

Raine is going to try to sign you.

I know that and you know that

but does he have to know that?

Wait, I've got it.

Famous couples.

Romeo and Juliet.

Columbus and Queen Isabella.

Cary Grant and

Katharine Hepburn.

Antony and Cleopatra.

On the other hand, there is

always another way to go.

Not exactly what I had in mind.

Oh, too bad.

Gee, Ollie, I thought

we looked great.


Well, all right, Stanley,

if that's what you want.

We'll do it.

Herbert, wrap up another

Laurel and Hardy.

The decision's been made.

- Freeway, come here!

- Come on!

- Yay! Up, up, up!

- Phone call for you.

Oh, thanks, Max.

Hello? Yeah, hi Lou.

Well, uh, keep trying, okay?


Right. Thanks a lot, Lou. We'll

be gone for the next four days.

- Bye.

- What was that all about?

Remember my telling you that

somebody was making a run

on Hart Industries stocks?

We still don't know who it is.

Sounds pretty serious.

- Max, do me a favor, will ya?

- What is it, Mr. H?

Check with some

of your buddies on the street.

Maybe one of them

will hear something

that's not being said

up in those executive suites.

Right, you've got a plane to catch.

We gotta get home and back.

No way, squirt.

You and me are staying home.

Ladies and gentlemen,

welcome to Honolulu,

where the local time is 1:45.

Please remain seated

with your seat belts fastened

until the captain has turned off

the "Fasten Seat Belt" sign.

Mr. and Mrs. Hart,

welcome aboard.

Our flying time to Mr. Raine's

island will be about 38 minutes.

If there's anything you need,

just let me know.

Honolulu Tower, this is 6589 Zulu.

Request clearance to Raine's Island,

vector south-southeast

on heading of 156.

We'll be landing here, on the

north face of the island.

There'll be a jeep waiting to take

you and your bags to the main house.

Hope you enjoyed your flight!

We did, thanks.

Jonathan, welcome.

I'm Alfred Raine.

- Jonathan Hart.

- Good.

- This is my wife, Jennifer.

- How are you?

- I'm so glad the two of you could make it.

- Oh, thank you very much.

You have a wonderful place here.
