The Girl Downstairs

Synopsis: Paul Wagner and Rosalind Brown are in love, but her father doesn't feel Paul's lifestyle will make him a suitable husband for his daughter. When Mr. Brown instructs all the servants in his extensive household, except the missing Katerina Linz, not to let Paul in his house again, Paul dons his chauffeur's clothing and takes Katerina to a local fair where they both have a good time. Paul learns she is a farm girl working temporarily as a scullery maid to earn money to replace a cow that died. He takes her home and sees Rosalind while Katarina fixes something for them to eat. The next day, Rosalind asks Katerina to deliver a letter to Paul because all the other servants are busy. At Paul's apartment, he continues the ruse saying the master is out, but his womanizing friend Charlie arrives and is taken by Katerina to be the Paul Wagner for whom the note is intended. Katerina slaps Charlie when he steals a kiss, and when Paul laughs he is "fired" by Charlie, who was playing along with the r

Stairway to the left.

Would you take care of these,

please?

I have to deliver a message

to someone upstairs.

Thank you, sir.

Willie, you wait here.

where?

I don't know. Where are we?

Here?

Pardon me.

I'm sorry, sir.

This is box number 4.

It's the karovian ambassador

and his party, sir.

May I see your stubs,

please?

Uh, it doesn't matter.

It's my mistake.

Thank you, sir.

Oh!

I'm so sorry!

Hello, hello?

Am I talking to his excellency

in person?

One moment, please.

I'll connect you.

your excellency,

A most terrible thing

has happened.

Could you come to the embassy

at once?

A matter of life and death.

At this hour?

But karovia

hasn't done anything.

We haven't done anything

in years.

What?

You mean

they've discovered everything?

Ohh, this is terrible.

Yes, yes, yes.

I'll -

I- I'll come immediately.

Please notify my secretaries.

I must go at once.

At once.

I know.

Classical music bores me,

too.

That's quite all right.

Gentleman, gentleman.

Something terrible has happened.

We must return to the embassy

at once.

Paul!

What are you doing here?

It seems to me there was

something about a wager.

But not now?

My dear, I hate to rush

things of this kind,

But something tells me

I won't be here very long.

How did you ever get in?

That's simple.

I just started a war.

You see, darling,

I'd do anything, brave anything,

Dare anything,

just to find light in your eyes.

Well,

you'd better be quiet.

If father hears you -

oh, father, father, father.

They're all

50 years behind the times,

And he's even behind them.

He's old-fashioned,

stuffy, selfish.

He's - he's -

obsolete.

...Obsolete.

Thank you.

Uh... Good evening.

Um, lovely music.

How long is this impudence

to continue?

You never know,

mr. Brown.

I might suggest

that one of us

Could still withdraw

with honor.

I'll get

the car.

I love music.

Could you please

leave this box?

But of course.

Why didn't you say so

in the first place?

Oh, paul.

Paul, he'll never forgive you.

Alone at last.

Are you mad?

Mad, crazy, silly, desperate,

and all about you.

Let's get out of here!

I can see

your point of view, sir.

A little opera

goes a long way.

Now,

can't we talk this over?

It makes it rather difficult

prancing around like this.

Nice point, paul,

nice point.

Now, I'm sure

that over a supper table

At, let's say,

one of the nicer cafs...

Over my dead body.

That'd be helpful...

But not necessary.

I am known

as a very patient man,

A quiet man,

a peaceful man.

I'm even-tempered

and easy-going

Under the most

trying circumstances,

But there is a limit!

And beyond that point,

I cannot vouch for myself!

If ever I find you

annoying my daughter again,

I shall, in the most calm way,

understand,

Turn you over

to the police.

Right.

Mr. Brown.

I don't like you.

I never have liked you.

I'm sorry.

I'm never

going to like you.

Is that

perfectly clear?

Oh.

My heart.

The other side,

father.

Oh.

I'll -

You know, I think I know

what he was getting at.

He doesn't like you.

Well,

what's the next stop?

There are only

two things left to do -

One's for me

to get tight,

The other's

for you to get sober.

Come on. Let's go.

Yeah, let's go.

You know what I love about you,

father?

About me? What?

Well, if you ever

changed your mind about this,

You'd be the first

to admit it.

Now, that takes honesty,

courage.

Yes, I suppose it does.

Well, I've always tried

to live up to my principles.

What I mean is

that if you, perhaps,

Sat down and had

a nice, quiet talk with him,
