That's an exquisite chorus

line, Mr. Hamilton

Meet patsy Brand

...Virginia Valli

I had to meet you because I

was charmed by that lovely

curl of hair.

Then I give it to you and

hope you have a nice time

Now, yhat wasn't a very

clever line, was it?

I'm Jill Cheyne, and I have

a letter of introduction to

Mr. Hamilton

...Carmelita Geraghty

... that was all the money

I had, and now I don't know

what to do!

Well, you can stay with me,

and tomorrow I'll take you

in to see Mr. Hamilton

This is my fiance back home.

I was getting nowhere, keeping

company to an old lady out in the


I went to the theater straight

from the station

Did you expect him to hire

you just like that, with the cab waiting?

The man who gave me the letter

said he was a good friend of

Hamilton's, so I thought...

Well, don't worry about it,

luckily you have me to take

care of you.

The Entire Company to be on stage for

Stage Manager

Take a chance, Mr. Hamilton,

and I'll show you some real

hot steps!

No, I haven't danced anywhere


Folks, I have a great artist

here, who has never been on

stage in her life but is sure

she can show us how to dance.

Just anything in the charleston

line will do.

I hate to admit it but you're

pretty good. How's five pounds

a week?

You know I'm better than that.

I'll take twenty to start.

Patsy, Miss Jill's fiance

is here.

You must be the roommate, Patsy!

Jill was written me how nice

you've been to her. I'm Hugh


Sorry Jill isn't in right now,

she's trying on a costume for

the new revue.

At Hamilton's apartment

Let's not have any suggestions

like that...

...until I have my own place

I could invite you to!

My company is sending me to

the plantation overseas for

two years - but after that I'll

have enough to marry, and

Jill has promissed to wait.

Patsy, I asked Mr.Levet

to pick me up here. We work

for the same outfit.

Miles Mander

In fact, Levet is already

stationed out here, and is

here for a two-month furlough.

We'll be working on the same


You have no idea, Miss Brand,

how empty and lonely life out there...

Do you believe in love?

Her number's coming up next!

I'm so lucky to have a terrific

girl for a fiancee!

May you have not only fame,

Jill, but also happiness!

This is Prince Ivan, Jill.

He wants to congratulate you

in person.

It is a rare pleasure to watch

you perform, and I intend to

indulge myself often.

I know how you feel, Hugh,

but I'll steer her away from

these stage-door tomcats

if I can.

I'm afraid poor Hugh has

a rather dewy-eyed conception

of his childhood sweetheart.

Soon after Hugh's departure

overseas, Jill took a step

up in the theatrical world.

Dear Paley

I am so sorry to

leave you so soon but

I have had the

opportunity to take a

tiny furuislud flat for

myself, because you will

value that I couldn't

stay in cheap lodgings

I am nearly a slave


Midfull of her promise to

Hugh, Patsy makes a last

attempt to straighten out


Aren't you afraid of your

reputation as a kept woman?

I cannot stand by and watch

you throw yourself away like


...especially with a fine

man like Hugh waiting for you!

Would you believe it, Prince,

one of my casual friends form

the chorus is trying to run

my life!

I'm worried about Jill, Mr.

Levet. I promised to keep

her out of danger, and now
