Penthouse Page #2

Synopsis: Racketeer Tony Gazotti is thankful that lawyer Jackson Durant helps him beat a murder rap, but Durant just does it for the thrill of it and refuses payment. Durant's defense of mobsters causes his firm to disown him and his girlfriend Sue to leave him. But when young Tom Siddall, Sue's new boyfriend, is framed for a murder, she is the first to come asking for Durant's help. Durant uses Gazotti's information network and the help of new girlfriend Gertie Waxted to find that rival gangster Jim Crelliman is involved in the framing of Siddall. When Durant sends Gertie to Crelliman's apartment in a bid to blow open the case, she is walking on thin ice.

- Yeah, but this is my job.

No one should interfere with it.

Very well.

Sue, dear... Do not react like this.

Look, Jack, I had

four weeks to ponder.

I'm not marrying a

gangster lawyer.

"I'm sorry you feel that way."

Me too.


So let's leave it to you, Jack.

OK, as you wish.

- Private affairs solved.

- Well, sir.


- I told you...

- We know, boss.

"Can not we stay, boss?"

- No.

- You treated us badly?

- Hang on.


I will follow you.

Hold on. Come to my car.

They'll get better.


A cigar?

You smoke?

I'm sorry I do not drink.

Put them here.

Are you comfortable, lads?

Do you have a blanket?

Do you have fire?

Not good... not bad.

You should not drink so much.

- I'm celebrating.

- Do not lose your head

because his girlfriend left him.

Did you also report this?

Stop drinking.

You'll find a great girl.

You will have trouble choosing.


You can choose what you want.

Tony, you're such a dirty devil.

You won me!

Do You like me!

Good evening ladies and gentlemen.

We live the Pinnacle Club...

on the corner of 52nd

Street and Broadway.

This is the elite fun place.

Join us. It's a great night.

Music, boys.

Sue, you're crazy to do that.

Do you care about your profession?

Not only that. Everything separates us.

We do not have the same tastes.

He would be able to invite us

to dinner for a taxi driver.

That makes him charming.

It's human.

Me too.

Let's smoke?

I know I speak against

my interests.

What interests?

You know very well.

You've known for years.

Let me know. I forgot.

It does not suit me.


"You use me to make you jealous."

Do not.

It's been weeks for me.


"If I thought-"

- Do not think.

You make a grave mistake.

Throw a losing horse.

Do not be so modest.


I've always been in love with you.

- Tom.

- Yes darling.

Do not you have a

little detail to solve?

You mean with Mimi Montagne?

This does not bother me,

but it must stop

before we get married.

There you go.

"I do not want trouble with her.

"You will not."

- Are you sure?

- I'll do.

How are you, Mr. Siddall?

Hi, Lili.

Hello dear. Now I leave.

Hello, dear.

What are you doing?

Mimi, I want to tell you.

"Lili, you're dismissed.

Yes ma'am."

What dear?

We had some good times together.

Is that?

We can not go forward.

Did something happen.

Another girl?

- No.

- You lie!

Do not be hysterical.

You tell me we're breaking

up and I have to laugh?

"It could not last."

- Because?

I've always been nice to you.

I've always been faithful.

You have been wonderful. But...

I'm going to get married.

Oh, was that it?

Who is she?

I imagine one of those snobs.

He will not like you leaving!
