- Miss Duncan.

- Rest period.

The doctor will see you

in a moment.

Thank you.

I'm sorry to keep you waiting,

Miss Duncan. Please sit down.

I hope your trip

wasn't too difficult.

On the contrary,

it was delightful.

I've never been

this high before.

Do you feel any effects?

No, should I?

Confidentially, yes.

I'm sorry

to disappoint you.

I'll wait.

Are my lungs photogenic?

This is a month-old take.

We better make some new ones.

- Might as well get it

over with now.

- Certainly.

I'll examine Miss Duncan

right away.

Would you go with

the nurse, please?

- Breathe deeply.

Again please.

More deeply.

Oh, I feel dizzy.

That's the altitude.

See, I wasn't disappointed

after all.

Now we'll just

take your X-ray.

Right here, Miss Duncan.

When did you first notice

that you were ill?

I really don't remember.

It just kept getting worse.

Professor Linnaker sent me

a very nice letter.

He wanted me to take

the best care of you.

That was very kind...

That was very kind

of Professor Linnaker.

Hold it.

Up. Take a deep breath.


Hold it.

- That's all.

- May I dress?

- You may.

- When will I know

the results?

- Tomorrow.

How long will I be here,


You've been doing concert

tours for the past two years.

A night here, a night there

eating on the run,

Rushing to catch trains,

barely time to sleep.

Barely time for anything.

You should be very tired.


Yes, I am.

Are you finished

with me, Doctor?

For the time being.

I'm really quite overwhelmed

to meet you.

I got a large number

of your records.

Also a very vivid memory

the last time I heard

you broadcast.

The plate is all right,


Good. I won't put you

under orders on your

first day here,

But I do recommend

that you lie down

for a while.

- Your suite is number...

- Seventeen.

I'm helpless without her.

Seventeen it is.

We shall have to build you up.

How's the appetite?

We'll soon change that.

By the way, I think on

your first night here,

You ought to dine

with your doctor.

- Shall we meet in

the lobby at 7:

- Thank you.

Notify the kitchen.

Grade "A" stimulation diet,

number 17.

Yes, Doctor.

- Miss Duncan,

I'm Huberta Junger.

- How do you do?

- You shouldn't be doing that.

- I don't mind a bit.

I do. Come lie down.

Really. It's no trouble.

You've got to rest.

Open your mouth.

I'll finish unpacking.

This is the only way

I get to travel.


London, New York.

My, you've been

around a lot.

But you should have

warmer clothes than these.

They should have told you.

You see, 99.8.

That big mountain.

That's the Mount Vierge.

The Mount Vierge.

Virgin Mountain.

That's such a lovely little

town at the foot of it,

like a toy town.

It's not little when

you've lived in it.

And I've lived there

all my life.

Who had this suite

before me?

A lady.

She left us yesterday.

- Did she go home?

- I guess so. I didn't ask.

There. All done.

I'll get a boy to

take your luggage down

while you're at dinner.

I forgot. I'm having

dinner with Dr. Stanton.

Good evening, Doctor.

- It was sweet of you

to send me these.

- What?

Oh, the orchids.

I hate to admit it,

but someone isn't

as slow as I am.

I didn't send them.

- You didn't?

- To my shame, no.

Who could it have been?

Anybody who saw you.

I don't understand it.

Well, look around.

Every man in the room

has got his eye on you.

Dr. Stanton, I'm sorry.

Telephone please.

- Thank you.

Will you excuse me?

- Certainly.

I'll wait for you

in the lobby.

- Still intrigued?

- Still intrigued.

- No clue as to who sent them?
