Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye

Synopsis: From the trial of the survivors, we flash back to amoral crook Ralph Cotter's violent prison break, assisted by Holiday Carleton, sister of another prisoner...who doesn't make it. Soon Ralph manipulates the grieving Holiday into his arms, and two crooked cops follow her into his pocket. Ralph's total lack of scruple brings him great success in a series of robberies. But his easy conquest of gullible heiress Margaret Dobson proves more dangerous to him than any crime...

Hear ye, hear ye!

Department One, Superior Court

is now in session

Judge George Spaulding


Ladies and gentlemen

of the jury

it is my duty to prosecute

and your duty to convict

or acquit,

these seven defendants.

These seven people are on trial

either for murder

or being accomplices

to the act of murder.

What they did, they did gladly

and with full understanding.

They are evil, all of them.

Seven evil people.

Look at them carefully,

because they are your enemies

and the enemies

of every decent citizen.

They're at war with you

and always have been

and always will be.

Should they escape this time,

the next victim may be you

or you, or you.

Study their faces.

All their faces.

First, this one...

Holiday Carlton.


Charles Weber.

John Reece.

They were policemen,

ladies and gentlemen.

Guardians of the law.

Accomplices to the act

of murder.

Keith Mandon,

formerly an attorney.

Now the shame of his profession.

Accomplice to the act of murder.

Peter Cobbett, formerly a guard

at the state penal farm

another supposed guardian

of the law.

Accomplice to the act of murder.

Victor Mason, habitual criminal.

Clothing his crimes

in a coat of respectability.

Accomplice to the act of murder.

Joseph Raynor...


Well, there they are,

ladies and gentlemen.

All seven of them.

And only seven.

There should be eight

and believe me,

I'm sorry that there are not.

But unfortunately the eighth

the man who motivated

this whole vicious

and sinister crew

the most evil man of all

is not present.

And yet he is here in spirit

as you will find

when the state rests its case.

The first witness for the state

will be

Peter Cobbett.

Peter Cobbett,

take the stand.

Raise your right hand.

Do you solemnly swear to tell

the truth, the whole truth

and nothing but the truth?

I do.

Take the stand.

Your name

is Peter Cobbett?

Yes, sir.

You were formerly a guard

at the state penal farm?


Would you be willing to make

a statement before this court?

Yes, sir.


Well, sir, I guess

this all began

one morning

about four months ago.

Real early

in the morning.

At about 5:

All right, kiddies, all right,

let's go.

Why, this is going to be

a beautiful morning.

And the little old sun

is going to be shining down

on your heads all day long.

And the birdies are going to be

chirping to you from the trees.

Ain't that cute?

And all you boys are going

out and play in the dirt

just like when you

was kids again.

Come on.

Rise and shine!

Well, you know,

it ain't everybody

can be lucky enough

to be out playing in that sun

on a beautiful day

like this.

Yeah, that's the way.

Everybody's going

to be crazy to get out

in that beautiful sun

and take a handful of them

little old seeds

and plant them

in that little old earth.

Oh, we'll make farmers

out of you if it kills you.

I saw in the paper

the other day

where some fella said

there's too many stick-up men

and not enough farmers.

Don't worry about that.

We'll take care of that

for you.

Now just put on your little


and wash your little...

handsies and facies and...

Get outta here!

Come on, you guys, get up!

Come on.

Start moving.

Come on.

Shake it up, you.

It's getting late.

It's only about

00. Relax.

The bus is going to be

by here pretty soon.

All right.

Anything to keep

you quiet.

Hey, what's the matter with you,

you hungry?

You eating dirt?

Why, a man would think you didn't

like the food you get around here.

I've got a fever...

I'm burning up.

I need a drink of water.
