DRIVER:
Whoa!

Drop those guns.

Everybody get out.

Do not try anything,

and nobody will get hurt.

He said to come out, Miss Flower Belle.

- Well, I got nothing he wants.

- I will be the judge of that.

Come out, or I will have to kill

all these nice people.

Don't mind being held up,

but I don't like the inconvenience.

The Masked Bandit.

He's just another man to me.

Bring down the gold box.

Come on, take what you want

and let's get out of here.

I will do that, my pretty one.

Put the gold in my saddlebags.

He kidnapped her.

Pile in, everybody. We've got to get to Little Bend

and form a posse.

He just swept Flower Belle on his horse

and away they went.

He got away with the gold shipment, too.

He did?

- There's Flower Belle's aunt and uncle.

- Let them through.

- Mr. Powell, I got bad news for you.

- What's that?

Your niece has been

kidnapped by the Masked Bandit.

Flower Belle kidnapped?

Yes, and I'm forming a posse right now

to hunt for him.

Come on, let's go!

It's going to be all right, honey.

She's back. Flower Belle's coming.

All by herself, too!

You sure, Zeb?

Sure. Come on.

Come on, boys.

Here she is.

I'm all right, I'm fine.

I'm so happy to see you. I was so worried.

I was in a tight spot,

but I managed to wiggle out of it.

You always do.

Come on in the house, baby.

Flower Belle's back

and I guess that's all there is to it.

Go home and rest easy.

Did he want to hold you for ransom?

How'd you escape?

Don't go asking her

a lot of questions tonight.

Flower Belle must be plumb tuckered out

after an experience like that.

If you don't mind,

I think I'll go up to my room.

Just one question, Flower Belle.

How did you manage to get back to town

all by yourself?

Them hills is a long ways off.

He brought me to the edge of town,

after it got good and dark.

Where'd he keep you all that time?

I see you got my things off the stagecoach.

Come up, Aunt Lou. I want to show you

the pictures I had took at Big Bluff.

Bring up the baggage, Zeb.

Sure thing.

Good night, and thanks for looking for me.

These are right pretty pictures of you,

Flower Belle.

I like them. They look just like me.

Gold. Did the bandit give it to you?

Yeah, I figured it's only fair

for the inconvenience I went through.

It's you.

I didn't expect you so soon.

I had to come.

I could not stay away.

The whole town's been looking for you.

Anyone see you?

No, my pretty one.

The Masked Bandit move

like the shadow of the night.

That is beautiful.

When am I going to see your face?

You must be patient with me.

When am I going to see what I'm kissing?

Some day you will see.

I will take off this mask and never put it on again.

I recognised his horse...

and then I saw their shadow on her window.

There they were, locked in each other's arms.

She and that bandit. And then he came out, mask and all,

and rode away.

- lf you ask me, she's shielding him.

- Well, nobody's asking you so close your gopher trap.

you old snapping turtle!

Silence. Young man, sit down and be quiet.

Are we to conclude that you deliberately

refuse to tell us the true facts in this case?

I said all I'm gonna say, and that's nothing.

It's the opinion of this court,

and the good, law-abiding citizens...

that you constitute

a menace to this community...

and we hereby order you to leave town.

And not to return till you can prove

that you're respectable and married.

All right, if that's how you feel,

the feeling is mutual.

I wash my hands of you, too.

Young lady, are you trying to show contempt

for this court?

No, I'm doing my best to hide it.

Mae West

Mary Jane "Mae" West (August 17, 1893 – November 22, 1980) was an American actress, singer, playwright, screenwriter, comedian, and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned seven decades, known for her lighthearted bawdy double entendres and breezy sexual independence. West was active in vaudeville and on the stage in New York City before moving to Hollywood to become a comedian, actress and writer in the motion picture industry, as well as appearing on radio and television. The American Film Institute named her 15th among the greatest female stars of classic American cinema. Often using a husky contralto voice, West was one of the more controversial movie stars of her day and encountered many problems, especially censorship. She bucked the system, making comedy out of conventional mores, and the Depression-era audience admired her for it. When her cinematic career ended, she wrote books and plays and continued to perform in Las Vegas, in the United Kingdom, on radio and television and to record rock and roll albums. She was once asked about the various efforts to impede her career, to which she replied: "I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it." more…
