Seven Sinners

She becomes very popular with U.S. navy men by performing at the 'Seven Sinners'. A navy Lieutenant is attracted to Bijou despite the Governor's machinations to keep them apart, and the competing affections of local mobster, Antro. Will the Lieutenant give up the navy for Bijou, and will he survive Antro's forces?

We want Bijou!

Let's have Bijou!

Let's have Bijou!

I'll show you if she's a lady or if she ain't!

Attention! What's going on here?

Nothing. I'm just sitting here,

minding my own business.


- Rubio!

- Yes, sir?

- Another fight and I'll close your dive.

- What can I do? They all fight.

- Where is this girl Bijou?

- She's gone.

Bijou had nothing to do with this.

- Quiet! Where are you from?

- The Navy.

- There's nothing American in port.

- I uh... I was in the Navy.

I see.

I gave this girl a whole lot of money.

I wanted her to sing.

She won't come out.

He thinks he buys her

so he starts for her dressing room.


- See?

- Report to the magistrate at 10:00!

- Take him out!

- Come on.

I warned you about Bijou a month ago.

Have her at the magistrate 10:00.

Hey, you! You too.

Yes, sir.

James Clyde, convicted of disorderly

conduct and vagrancy. To be deported.

Andre Boiler...

Stop that smoking back there.

Disorderly conduct, vagrancy. Deported.

Luigi Coreo, petty larceny,

disorderly conduct, vagrancy. Deported.

Sasha Menken. Sasha Menken?

- Coming.

- Disorderly conduct, fraud, vagrancy.

Your Honour, the disorderly conduct

and fraud, I admit - they're minor offences.

But the vagrancy charge is a tissue of lies!

A tissue of lies.

- You have no visual means of support.

- I'm a magician.

- You're a pickpocket, a petty thief.

- Do I say no? But I am a magician. Look.

You impudent pickpocket! How dare?

Sticks and stones

may break my bones, but...


May I have my watch now, please?

Certainly, sir. And it's perfectly dry.

Allow me to put it back.

Your Honour, I rest my case.

All right, all right, you're a magician.

And you're a fair and brilliant official.

Deported. Get out.

Patrick Edward Finnegan, alias Ned Little.

Disorderly conduct, vagabond. Deported.

- Hey, Chief, how's chances for a fair trial?

- You're getting one. Outside.

- Bijou?

- Hey, now, wait a minute.

It's OK to push us tramps around

but that lady is playing a lone hand.

She's got to get a square deal,

or else I'm gonna start trouble.

I'm sorry. I just gotta.

- Bijou!

- Bijou!

- Bijou!

- Coming!

That's what happened

to the farmer's daughter.

- Give me a penny.

- Don't go so far away.

Don't worry, boys. When I settle down,

I'll send word to all naval units.

- Cable code is "Man overboard".

- Bijou. I'm fixed.

Good morning...


- Three times I had to call you...

- Just a minute.

As you were, Big Boy.

Take him out to be deported.

- You're accused...

- Of inciting a riot, being a public nuisance.

I make rough seas,

I set the jungle on fire.

I'm a bad influence.

- So I'm to be... I'm sorry.

- I'm sorry, too.

But we've had half a dozen complaints

since you came to that caf.

A half-dozen? Why not 50?

I'm surprised.

You know, handsome, when I stop

singing to you and you say, "Mm, darling,"

then I say, "Mm-mm, goodbye."

You don't get drunk and roar and fight.

You're nice.

- It's the judgment of this court...

- The minute Bijou is in trouble, she's out.

To be deported, so the court says.

- You must realise...

- Don't feel sorry for me, Curly.

The next island will be wonderful.

Bijou will sing again and the caf will be full.

And may an angel take my place here.

It'll serve you right, Curlylocks.

Goodbye, Bijou.

Gangway, gangway!

Gangway, gangway!

Gangway, gangway!

When are you coming back, Bijou?

When are you coming back, Bijou?

Hey, the governor.

Oh. That's the man

who's deporting us, huh?

- Who is that?

- Just human backwash, Miss Henderson.
