"Under condition that a bona

fide person acts as surety, I'm

prepared to supply the amount."

"Dear Rudolf, I need a large sum

right away, and require a surety.

Would you be so kind...?"

"I will supply the 10,000 Crowns

but... on one condition.

You must give me your word of honour

not to gamble anymore, and to break

with the woman who is destroying you."

"I did not bring enough money.

I shall be back in half an hour."

Lulu and mister Alfredo."

It is all his work!"

A woman who was unworthy

of him, has destroyed him!"

done for you? Did you forget how I so

to speak picked you up from the street?"

"I... can... not"

Lulu goes on a trip.

The clerks check the luggage.

"Duties have to be paid for

all of these things, madam!"

"I do not carry that much

money at the moment."

Dear sir, For your services rendered

to me I wish to thank you once more.

Hence it would be pleasant to me... receive a visit from you in

my hotel and settle my debt to you

as well. Sincerely, Lulu Kowalsky

"Mister Van Waldheim."

"Where is Lulu?"

"Since a few days she has

disappeared without a trace."

Dear son, Since the death of your

mother our relation was more that of

comrades than that of father and son,

and that is why I can now

speak to you as a friend.

I have met a young, pretty woman,

that I wish to make my life mate.

I know that you shall understand me

and approve my decision. Your father.

"Lulu, if you wish to make

an old man like myself happy,

then become my wife."

"You've told me that you have

a son. Do you think he will

be pleased with your plan?"

Dear son, I have taken the decisive

step, and I have no regrets of it.

She has become my wife,

and now I feel myself the happiest

man in the world. Besides, I could

not have lived without her anymore.

I hope that I shall see you here

soon to be witness of my happiness.

Your father.

"Why does your son not come...

have you not written to him?"

An evening at the Waldheim's.

Mister Van Waldheim introduces

his son to the guests.


"The sooner my father will

perceive he was cheated..."

"Your son allows himself

liberties with me!"

"Tomorrow morning I will

speak further with you!"

The next morning.

"You will see that our

ways part from today!"

"Father... I owe you a

clarification, so that you..."

"Father, now I am unable to reply

to your accusation... but may

you never regret this hour..."

"Have you not been

too hard on your son?"

Lulu, I have just arrived and

expect you at 12 o'clock.

Address Bergstr. 22. Alfredo.

Lulu, I have just arrived and

find out Lulu's secret."
