Ms. 45

Synopsis: In Manhattan, Thana is a timid and mute woman that works as a seamstress in the fashion industry and spends most of her idle time at home. One night, she gets raped in an alley while going back home after hours and when she arrives at home, she gets raped again by another criminal. However, she reacts and bludgeons the assaulter to his death with a flatiron. The disturbed Thana loses her sanity and uses a .45 caliber pistol to shoot men on the streets of New York. She dresses suggestively and roams the dark streets alone, wreaking vengeance upon anyone who tries to take advantage of her. Eventually, her secret life overflows into her regular life in the fashion industry.

What do you think?

Well, I have one more piece coming up

and it is really gorgeous,

but darling give this one a chance.

Look at it for a few minutes.

Alright, I'll be right back.

Laurie, angel...

Is the Sherbert Resort ready?

Here comes.

Ms. Grimaldi is waiting.

No, no, no.

No, no. I'll dress the model myself.

Oh my god, it's 9 o'clock!

Send the girls home,

I'm not paying any overtime.

Sorry.

Have you reconsidered it?

Can I see the other style, please?

It's coming right up.

Thank you, Irene. Very pretty.

When she moves,

the material really seems

to flow, it's like quicksilver.

Turn around, honey.

What do you think?

It's nice.

Let's do it in 3 colors

and 5 sizes

for all the stores.

Excellent.

Excellent!

You have impeccable taste, my dear.

Come on,

let's get to Molly McGuire's.

So it's not like he's...

Come on, Thana.

Let's go.

I really liked him.

I don't like him at all

Hey, bright and early in the morning.

Good night, honey.

Everything's locked up.

And the machines are shut off?

Yes, good night.

The 2 best seamstresses

in town.

Rimoldi lovekin!

Thana... Good night, honey.

Hey booty,

you wanna sit on my face?

F*** off!

Oh mama!

Hey baby!

Are you sure, you don't want

to come with us for a drink?

You'll have a good time.

All right, we'll see you tomorrow.

If you make one sound,

I'll stick this thing in your mouth.

and then I'll shoot it off.

That was good, baby,

but I gotta go now.

I'll see ya. I'll se ya again. I'll be back.

We're going to play a little game

You talk and I'll kill you.

Now I'm going to take

my hand off your mouth.

If you scream...

Bam!

Now let's try it.

That's good.

That's real good.

Now, where's the money?

Where's the money?

What's the matter with you?

Talk.

Talk!

You can't talk.

You can't talk?

Open the bag.

Give me the bag!

What's the matter with you?

What happened to you?

Come on gently paper,

don't be modest.

the ramp is flowing smoothly on both levels.

It's 6:
09

and the temperature at Central Park is 52.

Continued fair tomorrow, cooler on Friday

with the chance of some showers.

Come here, Phil.

Come on.

What is this?

I said a V-neck!

Not a scoop neck!

What are you gawking at?

Alright, girls.

Back to the drawing board.

Thana, do you have the shirt ready?

Thana, are you alright?

Thana?

What's the matter with that?

Thana?

Thana?

Thana, what's the matter?

Thana, are you okay?

What's the matter?

Don't you feel well?

Thana?

Would you like to sit down?

You like a glass of water?

Let me feel your forehead?

Maybe you should sit down.

Would you like to sit down?

Maybe you should sit down.

What's in that bag?

Oh Phil, get out of the way!

I'll take the bag down for you.

Really, let me do it.

Thana? What ever you...

What's wrong, honey?

Are you alright?

Is there anything wrong, honey?

Little girl!

Hey, uh little girl, sweetheart!

Where you go? What's the hurry?

Jesus Christ, all mighty!

Everyone is in a goddamn hurry today, huh?

Huh, Ben?

Goddamn chicks are cold as ice, huh?

You ain't missing sh*t!

Hey, baby doll.

Looking pretty good today, huh?

Hey, what's the matter?

I got bad breath or something?

Maybe I ain't good enough for you, huh?

Hey, lasse!

Hey, baby!

Your bag!

You forgot your bag!

Thana!

Open the door, Thana!

Thana!

Open!

Thana, what's wrong with you?

I heard you run up the stairs like a phantom

and throwing up all over the place.

There's something wrong with you.

I'm gonna call the doctor.

Oh yes I am!

Phil, where are you?

Come on, Phil!

Oh Phil, what are you doing in there?

Come on out!

Phil, you naughty dog!

Now you get out of there!

Right now!

I think I ought to call Dr. Fisher.

You look very bad.

You really do.

I'm going to call the doctor.

Alright, we'll see about it.

What's the matter with you?

What happened to you?

Cause you're mute, you dress like that?

Hey mister? Nickel?

Dime? Anything?

Go f*** yourself.

Harold's Incorporated.

Thana, I guess what I'm trying

to say is I'm concerned about you.

You insist that you're feeling better,

but still your work these past

few days has not been up to par.

On top of scorching the silk blouse,

you sewed only 2 cuff buttons

instead of 3 on all the Prince suits.

I had to do have them all recalled.

Darling,

I realize that you are working

under a tremendous handicap.

Which is precisely why

you have to try harder

that a normal person.

You know we all love you here.

You know we all want you to do well.

So promise me

you'll get back on the track.

Show more interest in your work.

More spirit.

Be like the other girls.

There's the Halloween party on the 31st.

All of us are going.

You should come too.

There'll be boys your own age.

You'll enjoy yourself.

You'll have fun.

Good.

I believe you will.

Now tell Laurie to come in

here for a minute, please.

Now?

Okay, I'll be right there.

Look, I'll get back to you in

about fifteen minutes.

Thana, come here.

Why did Albert want to see

you in his office? Is he upset?

What's wrong?

Can I have the ashtray? Thank you.

Don't you like your sandwich?

It's terrible.

You know, I don't know why

we keep coming to this place?

I don't either.

We barely have time for coffee now.

Hey Mrs. Onassis?

What about the coffee we ordered?

I'll give it to you right now.

No skip the coffee. Just give us the check.

We have to go back to work.

Okay, you want separate?

Just put it on one, what do we

look like, strangers over here?

What is this, a zoo?

They look like a couple of monkeys going at it!

Hey lady, we're trying to eat over here!

This is a restaurant,

it's not Plato's Retreat.

Bye.

See you later.

Here, let me make sure Madame Currie

didn't make any mistakes over here.

Ok, it's $3.50 a piece, it's $4

with a tip. Everybody put up 4 dollars

Hey, ladies.

May I join you for an after dinner drink?

Sweet ladies.

I'm buying.

F*** off!

You heard me. Get f***ed!

Get bent!

F***ing wimp. Get the hell out of here.

Okay alright.

Beat it!

Take it easy!

Take it easy, my ass!

Believe it or not, this guy?

Here you go.

I can't believe how much work

we've got to get done.

Yeah I know,

I have to go to the bank.

I hope we have a long run.

Okay, we gotta go.

I'll cash my check.

Hey listen Thana, we'll see

you later at the office, alright?

Listen, baby.

How you doing?

Uh look, I didn't mean to seem forward

or out of place in that restaurant or anything.

It's no reason for your assistant

to get carried away like that.

I just wanted to say hello

and introduce myself.

Rich Falk, fashion photographer.

You know, Vogue, Cosmo,

layout of Atlanta, and now

Belinda on zebra skins, the plaza fountain.

You know my stuff.

It's been all over.

Hey, wait a minute.

Just a second, I just want to talk to ya.

See, I'm a photographer,

I'm a gourmet of beauty,

and when I saw you at

that restaurant, and that light,

I said to myself, wow!

I mean, it was like a Renoir or a Matisse.
