Nothing is over since the complete happens,

it's just you and Helmar again.

Well next?

Five hundred.

Care to make a thousand?


There you are.

What you've got to say to that, ah?

Good boy you run a hand at last.

Oh he's won again, congratulations Nick.

Your deal, Sir William

I'm afraid gentlemen

I must ask you to be excused I find the

stakes getting much too high for me.

Why is it always the same

with you rich men?

Because we prefer to remain rich


Go and tell Mr Hatton the

last dance has begun.

- Our guests will be leaving in a moment.

- Very good, Madam.

Have you seen Master Barney anywhere?

He went into the garden,

Madam, with Miss Helmar.

If you see him tell him I want him

I will, Madam.

This is the loveliest ball

I have ever been to

I am glad.

You don't look it.

Why are you serious, darling?

Because there won't be any more

evenings like this at Moderlaine.

My father goes on gambling.

Oh that they all do it my

father is just as bad.

Maybe but Moderlaine doesn't belong to him

I wish it did. It's a wonderful

house I love it.

Then you can guess how I feel about it

I was born here so were all

the Hattons right back to 1394.

Were those other Hattons

as good looking too?

As it seems very foolish to you

to love a house so much.

Oh no


- I understand how you feel only.

- Only what?

I wish I were the house.

I had the sense for the money to be

coming in this direction.

Now what is it?

If you please, Sir, Mrs Hatton

wants you to know

that the dancing is over

and the guests are leaving.

Oh that's hardly concerns us, does it?

Oh, Jimmy, it concerns me, they tell me

some wives can be kept waiting

mine isn't one of them.

Nor is mine

Charles, first time I've known

you to break up a game.

This game brook me up an hour ago.

Heaven knows I haven't gotten

any of your money.

Somebody has.

It would be a lucky tenant who

gets his roof repaired this year.

Let their roofs rot.

Rain's healthy make them grow.

- Good Night, gentlemen.

- Good Bye.

Excuse me, Sir, Mrs Helmar

asked me to tell you

that she and Miss Helmar are

ready to go home, Sir.

Well, what's stopping them?

They can't expect me to leave while

he got some of my money.

Tell them to take themselves home

I'll follow and excuse me.

Very good, Sir.

Well, it's you and me and less now, Nick.

What shall it be?

Let's give the dice a turn.

Yes, by all means.

They can't behave worse than the cards.

If you please, Madam, Mr Helmar

sends his compliments

and asks if you and Miss Helmar

- will be good enough to.

- Go home by ourselves?

- Is that it?

- Yes, Madam.

Thank you

I lay the message he sent

wasn't as polite as that either

I'm so sorry, My Dear,

stay the night with us

I wouldn't dream of it.

As a matter off fact I'm only too

happy to miss my Lord and master

after an all-night sitting, Thank You.

Come along Dilys.

Come and see us soon Barney

I will. Good Night.

Good Night.

- Good Night.

- Good Night, Thank you.

Oh if Mr Helmar is ruined in the morning.

Don't bother to send him home.

Just give him a job in the stables

I will - Good Night-Good Night.

I wish he wouldn't do it,

he can't afford to lose

night after night like this.

You know father, you might as well

wish he was somebody else.

At times like this I

I will often do..

What is it matter? What's happened?

Mother he hasn't taken your jewellery?

He can't do that.

He's done it.

- Good Morning, Barney, what do you want?

- I want my mother's jewellery.

Oh, I'm afraid your mother

no longer possess any jewellery.
