My Name Is Julia Ross

Synopsis: Julia Ross secures employment, through a rather nosy employment agency, with a wealthy widow, Mrs. Hughes, and goes to live at her house. 2 days later, she awakens - in a different house, in different clothes, and with a new identity. She's told she is the daughter-in-law of Mrs. Hughes, and has suffered a nervous breakdown. I'd Julia really 'Julia', or, is it true, that she's lost all memory of who she is?

Here, wipe your feet, will you?

And oblige me that

have to clean up after you.

Lodgers that can't pay their

rent coming and going all day...

popping in

and out of the house like flies.

And don't put your umbrella where

it'll make a puddle either.

I didn't take my

umbrella this morning.

Oh, shows you don't

know our London weather yet.

No, down in Sussex where I come from

it only rains every other day.

There's a letter for you on the table.

Nobody writes to me, it must be an ad.

That letter looks like

a wedding invitation to me.

Yes, that's what it looks like.

- Who's it from, Dennis Bruce?

- Yes, it's from Mr. Bruce.

When is it going to be?

It was yesterday.

You could knocked Mrs. Mackie and

me down with a feather when

he told us he was

leaving to get married.

He told me two months ago

when I first met him here.

He said he was engaged

to a girl in Edinburgh.

Oh, I expect Mrs. Mackie thought

that you'd make him forget about her.

That's ridiculous, I didn't even try

to make him forget her.

If you had, you wouldn't have to be

looking for work know, would you?

Or bother about the three weeks

rent you owe Mrs. Mackie.

She's beginning to get worried.

I've applied

to all the employment agencies,

I'll have a job soon.

Of course

if you aren't aiming too high.

I know plenty of places

you could get a job like mine.

But I suppose a fine lady like you

was trained for something better.

The doctor said I've got to

be careful for a few months.

My sister had her appendix out too.

She was scrubbing and

cleaning the very next week.

Doesn't it bother her now?

Nothing bothers her now, she's dead.

But it wasn't good honest work

that killed her.

Bertha, here's a new

agency I haven't been to.

"Secretaries wanted,

excellent positions available."


at the Allison Employment Agency"

Secretaries! sitting and writing

all day, call that work?

If I go there right now

perhaps I'll get it.

I've got to get it.

Why did you come to London, Miss Ross?

A London doctor was recommended to me.

And you've quite recovered

from your operation now?

Oh quite, quite, I'm strong as an ox.

You don't look it.

- You live with your family?

- No, I have no family.

- No husband? No young man?

- No.

- You're sure?

- Of course I'm sure!

I ask these personal questions

because I've a very lucrative position

open to a young woman

with no family responsibilities.

No romantic attachments.

Mrs. Williamson-Hughes,

190 Henrick Square.

Mrs. Hughes has already had 3

secretaries from this office this year.

Just as she was getting

accustomed to each one,

the girl would leave her

because of a sick mother

or a sister to care for,

or a young man.

This time Mrs. Hughes wants

a girl who could definitely

promise to stay at least a year.

I'm sure I could, I have no ties

and no young man.

I'm absolutely alone.

Your references seem to be in order.

You just might suit Mrs. Hughes.

Well... there's no harm in trying.

I hope you're not lying

in order to get the job.

I need a job but Im not lying.

My parents are dead.

The closest relative I have

is an aunt in America.

Mrs. Hughes, I think I've found

an excellent girl for you.

May I send her

along for an interview?

Oh, you'll be driving

past here anyway.


I'll ask Miss Ross to remain

and you could interview her here.

Thank you.

I think we shall suit each other

very well indeed.

Don't you, miss Ross?

I'll certainly try, Mrs. Hughes.

Miss Ross seems to answer all our


Doesn't she, son?

That's for you to decide, mother.
