"You cannot walk away from love."
That was the advertisement|in a Baltimore newspaper.
And that is how he found her.
She was a young woman|in need of a husband.
He was a man who wanted a wife.
Too late to talk sense to him now.
I meet her today. The boat from America|comes at 6:00, we marry at 9:00...
00, I'm back at work.
Ridiculous. This is ridiculous.
What does she look like?
Comes a day in every man's life|when a band is playing...
...and he's the only one who can hear it.|Today is your day.
I love you, woman.
She is not beautiful.
She is not meant to be beautiful...
...just kind, true and young enough|to bear children.
Go on. The sun will be up any minute.|The boat will be coming in.
But what about love, Luis?|Doesn't love come into this at all?
Love is not for me, Alan.
Never mind. You go! Go on!
No, this is not a love story.
The power to heal or destroy.
You don't recognize me, do you?
But this, this picture--
I've deceived you.|I'm sorry. I shouldn't have.
I was unsure. You see...
So I sent another woman's photograph|and not my own.
Not the worst at all.
Only, not what I was expecting.
If my deception has altered|your intentions...
...if you're not satisfied--
No, it isn't that.
...l am determined to make my way back|to my home in Delaware.
-If you say so, I will.|-Miss Russell....
...you have been honest with me.
I will be honest with you, too.
You are exactly the image|of your photograph.
Yes, I am.
But I wrote to you that I am a clerk...
I own the house.
The business is my own.
You did not want me|to be interested in you...
Then we have something in common.
We are both not to be trusted.
Of course, if my deception|has altered your intentions...
I'll make the effort.
Now we have all the time in the world|to get to know each other.
No, not all the time.
Then we'd better hurry.
"Take this ring...
"...as a sign of my love...
Ladies and gentlemen, a toast!
To our groom and his beautiful...
Will you dance with me?
I don't dance.
I say you do.
Alan, enough is enough.
I'm almost through.
You're through now. Sit down.
-Good luck to you.|-Thank you.
Would you like to see the house?
Oh, no. I can see it tomorrow.
You must give me a few moments.|I'm shy of these things.
I will give you as many moments,|days, nights as you need.
When you want me to come to you...
