[Chorus]:

JUST AROUND THE CORNER

MAY BE SUNSHINE FOR YOU

JUST AROUND THE CORNER

SKIES ABOVE MAY BE BLUE

KEEP A LITTLE SMILE ON

THAT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO

IN LITTLE WHILE:

YOUR TROUBLES:

THEY WILL DISAPPEAR

LIKE BUBBLES:

JUST AROUND THE CORNER

THERE'S A BLUEBIRD ON HIGH

WAITING ON A RAINBOW

IN THE SKY:

WAITING ON A RAINBOW

IN THE SKY:

SUN MAY PEEK TO ANSWER HOWDY

JUST AROUND THE CORNER

FROM YOU:

[Ends]

Miss Penny, Miss Vincent

wishes to see you.

- [Woman] Miss Penny is here now.

- Hello, Gus.

- Hello, Miss Penny.

- Is my daddy here?

Penny, come here, please.

Penny, I have some

sad news for you.

But you'll be a brave

little girl, won't you?

- Is it about my daddy?

- Yes, Penny.

- Has anything happened to him?

- No. No, dear, no.

But he's sent for you.

You're going to leave us.

- Are you gonna take me right now, Gus?

Right this minute?

- Yes, Miss Penny.

- I'm gonna live with my daddy at the Riverview?

- Yes, Miss Penny.

On and on, for keeps?

- Yes, Miss Penny.

- Oh, Gus!

Maybe I'd better

wait outside.

It's very sad news, Miss Vincent,

but I wanna be brave...

even though I am

gonna miss everybody so much.

- And now I'd better pack. Don't you think?

- Oh, yes.

- It's not polite to keep people waiting.

- No, dear.

Please, may I be excused?

I feel awful sad about

leaving you, Miss Vincent.

- Good-bye! [Laughs]

- Good-bye.

- Good-bye, Miss Burns.

- [Door Closes]

I wonder why Mr. Hale is taking her

out of school so suddenly.

They're going abroad,

no doubt.

It wouldn't be finances.

His last check is overdue.

Finances? Hardly--

with the Riverview

as an address?

- Why, Miss Penny.

- Hello, Corporal.

- Please don't stop me now.

I've gotta find my daddy.

- Wait a minute.

Hey, Penny,

come back here!

Fine doorman you are-- Lettin' her go

right through the door.

What kind of a doorman

you call that?

Hello, Mr. Waters.

I'm back.

Uh, Miss H-- Uh--

[Chuckles]

[Man]

No, no, no. [Groans]

[Shouting French]

Attention.

[Continues In French]

- La porte.

- No, no "la porte."

Attention. Attention.

[French Continues]

- La table.

- No! No!

- [Shouting In French]

- All right. Have it your way then.

- Who are you?

- Who are you?

[French]

Je m'appelle Penny.

[French]

- What'd she say?

- What did she say?

Did you not listen?

A lesson we have

one week behind.

J'habite ici.

"I live here."

That proves

how stupid you are.

- You don't live here and neither does she.

- Don't mind him.

He's all mixed up. I'm the one

who lives here-- My daddy and me.

I beg your pardon.

This is my uncle's apartment.

I live here with my mother and my sister and

my Uncle Sam. Now, kindly vacate our premises.

Do you think I don't know where I live?

We've lived here three years.

Unless you want trouble with my daddy,

you'd better get out and--

I'm more sorry than I can say. I'm deeply

embarrassed. Come along, Miss Hale, quickly.

- But why?

- Run along, little girl. Scat! Shoo!

- Daddy!

- I'm taking you to your daddy right now.

- Where are you?

- This is very unfortunate. I apologize.

It will never happen again.

I assure you. I'm very sorry.

- I'm distraught, distrait.

- Daddy!

- Miss Hale, will you please-- Listen--

- Daddy!

Children are impossible

these days.

They don't ask if they live

in your house, they just tell you.

They walk right in and tell you.

You haven't a moment of privacy...

without some child coming in

to tell you she lives with you.

Mother, I pointed out her

mistake to her emphatically--

- not only in English, but in French.

- In French? Bah!

Ethel Hill

Ethel Hill (April 6, 1898, Sacramento, California – May 17, 1954, Hollywood, California) was an American screenwriter and race horse owner.When Dore Schary first went to work for Columbia Pictures as a new screenwriter, he was paired with the veteran Hill to learn from her; together, they wrote the screenplay for Fury of the Jungle (1933). Hill was described by Marc Norman in his book What Happens Next: A History of American Screenwriting as "an extremely dear and generous woman [who] had an interest in horses and often wore jodhpurs and riding gear to the studio." Perhaps her best known film is The Little Princess (1939), starring Shirley Temple. Hill bought the Thoroughbred race horse War Knight, a son of Preakness winner High Quest, as a foal "with her $1500 life savings". He went on to win 10 of 28 starts, including the 1944 Arlington Handicap. He was injured in 1945 and did not win any of his five 1946 starts leading up to the $100,000 added Santa Anita Handicap, which he proceeded to win in a photo finish. He retired to stud afterward. more…
