He Ran All The Way

Synopsis: The uptight and dumb small time thief Nick Robey and his partner and only friend Al Molin steal $10,000.00 from a man, but the heist goes wrong. Al Molin is killed by a policeman and Nick shoots him in the spine. He hides out in a public swimming pool and meets the lonely spinster Peggy Dobbs in the water. Nick uses Peggy to lie low. He offers a ride in a taxi to her and she invites him to her apartment, where she introduces her family to him. When Nick discovers that he killed the cop, he decides to use Peggy's apartment as hideout to wait the police manhunt cool down. When Nick finds that Peggy loves him, he invites her to leave town with him and asks her to buy a used car. However, Nick cannot trust anybody and believes Peggy has betrayed him.

You cried while sleeping.

It's good, mom.

There is nothing to make a drama.

It's eleven, it's

time to get up.

Give me peace.

Do not you?

You should shake

yourself to find work.

It's you I'm going to shake.

I made coffee.

- And stay polite.

- You knew worse.

From you, that's for sure.

You still have a hangover.

Next time, I'll kill you.

You're weak, mom.


Hey, Robey!

Where you go?

Hi, Al.

I have been waiting

for two hours.

I slept late, I'm

a little crazy.

You choose your day badly!

I know. I had a strange dream.

It's not my lucky day.

I'll tell you.

I ran and...

Let's go cool if I have

to steal your dream.

In my dream, I was

running so much...

I gasped.

Me too, I dreamed.

Florida in winter,

mountain in summer. Extra!

You hold the jackpot, you and me.

It's like we invented

the air conditioner.

I did not tell you the end.

I hit the guy and...

Listen, Al, I do not feel it.

Let's put it back.

Stop your movie!

Let's wait a week.

Next week, you will

have toothache

or dreamed

or a sprained ankle.

I have enough pot for

two, believe me.

Do you have the gun?

No I...

Finish your beer and go get it.

Al, wait!

These idiots are waiting for their pay.

If they knew!

And if he is accompanied?

He always comes alone.

But if...

Let me do.

Take care of the action, I

take care of the reflection.

- And if there is a glitch?

- There will not be any.

Great art.

Walk slowly and mingle

with the crowd.



Call a doctor!

An ambulance! Someone is hurt!

Do not move.

Here they are!

"Walk slowly and mingle

with the crowd."

"Mingle with the crowd..."

"Mingle with the crowd..."

75 cents.

Excuse me.

- Will he get out?

- Not sure.


We have the report of the accomplice.

We cover the sector.

He will regain consciousness?

With a bullet in the

column, not soon.

Do the maximum.

He will tell us everything

when he wakes up.

Do you go?

Excuse me. I am a beginner.

If you want to swim, it's simple.



It looks easy, but the water

annoys me more than anything else.

- Try.

- I will not arrive there.

I will help you.

You are too tense.

Let yourself go.

Like this?

It's easy.

- Beat your feet.

- I do not know.

Turn around.

I hold you, do not be afraid.

You are too tense.

Beat feet. More!

Very good.

Continue, I'll go back to you.

Thank you. It will suffice.

You have learned nothing.

I have to go away.

Do not go.

You hurt me!

Go away if you care.

Please evacuate the basin!


What is it?

They took my things!

Show the key.

It's the 168!

The hair, it changes you.

What is your name?

- You are funny.

- What do you mean?

You scared me blue and I

would tell you my name?

I did not want to scare you.

I'm a little confused.

Why this?

It's so bad to want

to know your name?

Peggy Dobbs.

And you?

- Your name.

- Nick... Martin.

It's late. I'm going with you.

Without asking my opinion?

Can I escort you?

- What if I say no?

- You will not do that.

- And if I leave you in plan?

- You can not.

Can I bring you back? Please.

With pleasure.


We take a taxi.

It's useless.

I always take it.

Me, almost never.

Good evening, Peg.

Thank you for the taxi.

You're welcome.

- Are you going to swim often?

- Yes.

I go there on Tuesdays and Fridays.

We'll meet Again.

Thank you again for the taxi.

And the lesson.

Good evening.

Keep all.

You forgot that.

- Thank you.

- It's normal.

Hi, Peg. I have a new

record, Beethoven's 5th.

Go up and listen to him.

It's Everett. He loves music.


- A chance you've seen it.

- Indeed.

You had to let me take you home.

You are not at home yet.

There, I'm there!

Come in and sit down.

I arrive.

Nice to meet you. I am the father of...

There you are!

We did not wait for dinner.

Dad, Nick Martin.

We met at the pool.

Nice to meet you, young man.

Sit. My wife will arrive.

We are going to the cinema.

For air conditioning.

Sit. So, this day?

Exhausting. We did a special

edition about the killing.

What killing?

A bastard made a hold-up and

injured a cop by running away.

You are from the neighborhood?

Mom, I'll introduce you to Mr. Martin.

Nice to meet you.

You should take off your jacket.

Thank you I'm okay.

By this heat?

- Did you swim well?

- Very good.

There is something to eat.


My little brother.

He does not want to

miss the cartoon.

You want to come?

Nice to have seen you.

See you soon?

It was a pleasure. Good night.

Offer him iced tea

before he feels bad.

Do you like them?

A lot. Your family is large?

Only four of us.

Mom, dad, Tommy and me.

Your father is a reporter

in a newspaper?

Not a reporter

But he has a very good job.

He works at the printing press,

as a typographer.

Tell me about your family.

I do not have.

You are alone?

I pity you.

There is worse, in life.

You want to eat?


We could come out, take a tour

or dance.

No, stay here.

You have a radio.

We can dance here.

Do not squeeze me so hard,

I'm going to choke.

It's my way of dancing.

I can show you other ways.

I dance as I like.

We do not dance like that anymore.


Remember your lesson.

If you do not like it,

we stop.


I do not feel good.

I'm sorry.

I did not want to annoy you.

It's my fault, I...

You are kind.

But I had a bad day.

I do not feel good.

You are burning.

Dalton Trumbo

James Dalton Trumbo (December 9, 1905 – September 10, 1976) was an American screenwriter and novelist who scripted many award-winning films including Roman Holiday, Exodus, Spartacus, and Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo. One of the Hollywood Ten, he refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in 1947 during the committee's investigation of communist influences in the motion picture industry. He, along with the other members of the Hollywood Ten and hundreds of other industry professionals, was subsequently blacklisted by that industry. His talents as one of the top screenwriters allowed him to continue working clandestinely, producing work under other authors' names or pseudonyms. His uncredited work won two Academy Awards: for Roman Holiday (1953), which was given to a front writer, and for The Brave One (1956) which was awarded to a pseudonym of Trumbo's. When he was given public screen credit for both Exodus and Spartacus in 1960, this marked the beginning of the end of the Hollywood Blacklist for Trumbo and other screenwriters. He finally was given full credit by the Writers' Guild for all his achievements, the work of which encompassed six decades of screenwriting. more…
