Baby Take a Bow (1934)

- Good-bye.
- Good-bye.
- Oh, good morning, Flannigan.
- Hello, Harry.
- One round-trip and one one-way as usual?
- That's right.
Yeah. He'll be
coming back alone.
Here you are.
- Hiya, Flannigan.
- Hello, Welch.
Save a seat for me, will ya?
- I'll be right with you. Hiya, Harry.
- Hello, Welch.
- Give me one to Ossining.
- Gonna make sure they take him
to the right place, eh?
No. He's not one of my boys. I'm going up
to the big house on some private business.
- For the landlord.
- You never take them up anyway, do you?
Who me? No. The city cops
do that after I catch 'em.
- Just a minute.
- You sure put Sing Sing on its feet all right.
Oh, I help the population some, I guess.
Well, I'll be seeing you.
Oh, Welch.
You forgot your ticket.
Don't worry.
I would've found it out.
Come on.
- Two tickets for Niagara Falls, please.
- Oh, congratulations, ma'am.
- What train?
- The 9:20, and I want to stop off at Ossining.
You mean Sing Sing?
No, I mean Ossining.
Hello, Fred.
Hello, John.
- Hi.
- Well, you got quite a haul of fish today, huh?
Wonder what that chiseler's
going up to Sing Sing for.
Shake down some prisoner, I guess.
He'd do anything for a little dough.
- Why, I thought the insurance company fired him.
- Sure. They all did.
Well, Trigger Stone.
- Huh. How long is he in for?
- Five years.
Five years is right.
- But I'll make up for lost time when I get out.
- Says you.
- Thanks for saving the seat, Flannigan.
- Hmm.
Well, anyhow,
I got my name in the paper.
Too bad you couldn't think of
a better way to do it, Scott.
Well, hello, Kay. Here you are.
Here's a seat for you.
The further I sit from you,
Mr. Welch, the better I like it.
- Board.!
- Take those bags into the next car, please.
Sorry, miss,
the train's full up today.
Here you are, Kay.
Sit right down here.
Two tickets to Niagara Falls, eh?
How romantic.
That's where
honeymooners go, hmm?
Oh, yes. Eddie Ellison gets out today.
Say, you're not really going
to marry that guy, are you?
Any objection?
Say, listen, kid. I like you. I wanna
give you a little friendly advice.
Friendly advice.
Well, that's good, coming from the fella
who caused Eddie's conviction.
Now take it easy, Kay. I'm telling you
that I'm your friend.
- More than a friend.
- Yes, you've tried to be more than a friend...
- ever since you had Eddie arrested.
- Now don't be that way.
You're a nice girl, and you're about
to make the mistake of your life.
- That's my business.
- Sure it is, and don't let him tell you any different.
Catching crooks is my business,
but marrying 'em isn't yours.
That side of Eddie's life
is over forever.
- He's going straight.
- How many times
have I heard that before?
- Once a crook, always a crook. Nobody trusts 'em.
- She'll trust him.
That'd be enough
for my dough.
- Thanks, Mr...
- Scott's the name.
I'm pleased to meet ya.
Eddie, when you were admitted here,
I gave you a choice of two roads to take.
You took the right one, and it cut
four months off your stretch for you.
- Now will you let me advise you again?
- Certainly, sir.
Something kept up your morale
while you were up here.
- You're a good guesser.
- Well, whatever it was, stick to it outside.
Have you got a job
waiting for you?
- The biggest and best job a man ever had.
- Good wages?
- Not a cent.
- Well, but how...
- I've had a girl waiting for me for 18 months.
- Congratulations, my boy.
- The very best of luck.
- Thank you, sir.
I'm sorry I can't do much
for a wedding present...
but, uh, you take this card
to the Hopkins Agency.
They place quite a number of my boys.
That is, the ones I believe in.
- Well, gee...
- And, uh, by the way,
here's the $10 the law allows.
- Thank you, sir. Good-bye.
- Good-bye. Good luck.
Eddie. Eddie.
- Why, you big, good-looking...
- Hey, now cut that out, funny face.
I can't help it.
I'm so glad to see you.
Well, I guess
it's back to the city, huh?
No, we're not going back to the city, Eddie.
I've got a big surprise.
Say, what is this,
a practical joke?
It's no joke,
but boy it's practical.
- We're going to Niagara Falls.
- You mean right now?
- From here?
- The train leaves in half an hour.
Aw, gee, you're swell, and I'm
the luckiest man in the world.
Luck had nothing to do with it.
You couldn't get away from me if you tried.
That's right. I tried to hide
in prison and it was hopeless.
Well, glad to see you around, Eddie.
Oh, thanks, Flannigan.
Meet the future wife.
Oh, yeah.
We made the trip up together.
Boy, you sure got a girl
who knows her own mind.
Well, if it isn't
my old pal, Welch.
As big as life
and twice as natural.
- He's no pal of yours. He's still got it in for ya.
- What do you mean?
He's been throwing the hooks into you all
the way up. Trying to promote himself.
Yeah, I was just trying to give her
a little friendly advice, that's all.
- I happen to know a lot more
about crooks than she does.
- Why, you...
- Eddie!
- If you sack him, you'll get into trouble.
You're on the way out. Keep going.
I'm on the way in. So I got nothing to lose.
Thanks, fella. I'll be
seeing you when you get out.
Good luck. I wish I could be
your best man.
Oh. How does a guy
like me rate all this?
Mmm, darling. You rate
the best in the world.
Yeah. I got it.
Right here in my arms.
Now look what you've done.
Say, I haven't begun to do things yet.
So far, you've made all the plans.
Got us a little flat,
and you've lined me up a nice job.
But don't forget, beginning next Monday
you quit and I get going.
Oh, I wish this could last for a year.
It's been so wonderful.
It's gonna be wonderful
all our life.
Won't it be nice when
we save some money...
- we get our little home up in Yonkers?
- Oh, Eddie.
- Say, you didn't know I was an artist, did you?
- No.
Look... just get
a load of our little dream house.
It's gonna be painted white all over
with green shutters and a red roof.
We're gonna have a bright yellow
picket fence with black tops.
- That sounds beautiful.
- The whole place is gonna be
splotched with honeysuckle.
- We could raise our own honey
if we bought a pair of bees.
- You're silly.
Now, right here is the chicken coop
where we grow our own breakfast.
Where's the doghouse
to put you in when you're bad?
Oh. Right here.
"X" marks the spot.
Who's that? You?
- No, that is a "g-nom-e."
- Hmm?
Uh, elf.
Well, it's made out of
terra... terra...
- Aw, plaster.
- It's marvelous, darling.
Let me show you what I picked out.
See, it has a real fireplace
and a master bedroom with twin beds.
- What's that?
- That's a nursery.
That's where you can put
your little "g-nom-e."
- You mean our little "g-nom-e."
- Maybe our little elf too.
I'll be in in a minute, dear.
That'll be all for today, Eddie.
- Yes, sir.
- By the way, I'm going
to give you that job I promised you.
As soon as your friend can handle
the car, you start at the factory.
Gee, Mr. Carson, I don't know
how to thank you.
But anyway, I wanna
thank you for Larry too.
- We'll make good for you, sir. Both of us.
- I'm sure you will.
- What is your friend's name?
- Larry Scott.
Oh, yes.
Thank you.
- Hiya, fella.
- Well, what's the verdict?
- Guilty. You start work tomorrow.
- Great.
Aw, gee thanks, Eddie. What a break after
unloading freight and washing dishes.
Did you say anything about me?
I mean, about Sing Sing?
I didn't tell him about myself,
so why should I tell him about you?
Do you think it would make
any difference if he knew?
- I don't think so, but why take a chance?
- Yeah, I guess you're right.
Well, I gotta run. I'm calling
forJane at the dancing school.
Now that you've got a job, I suppose
she'll lead you right up to the altar.
- Not if I can lead her first.
- Okay, kid, do your stuff.
- If you see Kay, tell her
I'm bringing home liver and onions.
- Okay. So long.
Hello, Mommy.
- Hello, precious.
- Mommy.
- Oh, don't let me interrupt, Jane.
- That's all right, Kay.
The class is over.
You may go now, children.
- May I show Mommy
the new step you taught me?
- Not now, darling.
- Better wait till we get home, hmm?
- It'll only take a minute.
- That was marvelous, darling.
- Wait till I get home and show it to Daddy.
He'll never be able
to do it as well as you.
- Hello, girls.
- Hello, Larry.
Hi, Kay.
Meet Mr. Carson's new chauffeur.
- That's wonderful.
- Oh, Larry, I'm so glad.
That calls for
a special celebration.
- How about you two having supper with us?
- That'd be fine, huh?
- I know, liver and onions. Sold.
- That's great. I'll get my things.
And Shirley. Now look at
what I've got for you.
Ooh. Thank you,
Uncle Larry.
- Now what are you gonna give me?
- A kiss.
Come on, sweet.
Get your hat and coat on.
Does she know about
her birthday party tomorrow night?
Try and keep anything from
that little monkey with Eddie around.
Trigger Stone was released
from Sing Sing yesterday.
The warden reports he was
hard to handle up there.
Bragged about what he'd do when he got out.
Better keep an eye on him, boys.
- Hiya, Sarge.
- Anything we can do for you, Welch?
No, but there's something
I can do for the department.
- Wait. The captain's busy.
- He won't be too busy to see me
when he knows what I got.
Hiya, Cap.
- Hello.
- Well, I'm gonna give you a break.
- Yeah?
- You ever hear of the Stuart Carsons?
- Yes. They live on Park Avenue.
- You remember Eddie Ellison?
- He's their chauffeur.
- You know a Larry Scott?
He's out on parole.
Well, here's something
about them that you don't know.
- You mean about Ellison getting
Scott a job with the Carsons?
There you are. Plain as the nose on your face.
They got something up their sleeves.
- Listen, Welch, those boys are as clean as a whistle.
- Sure they are.
Eddie Ellison's been out six years.
He's strictly on the level.
Got a swell wife
and a cute little kid.
Let me tell you something.
You've hounded those boys enough.
You've had them fired from jobs,
stopped them from getting new ones.
- You leave them alone.
- All right. I was only trying
to give you the right steer.
- Thanks, Welch. We appreciate it.
- No trouble at all.
Anytime I can do anything for you,
don't hesitate to call.
Still trying to promote himself a job.
Just the same. We better keep an eye
on Scott and Ellison. Never can tell.
One, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight, nine, 10.
- Ready or not, I'm coming.
- Don't you peek, Daddy.
Well, she certainly can hide
better than anybody else in the world.
Well, I wonder
where she can be.
Ah, now I've got you.
- I don't know where she is.
- Here I am.
Oh, so you
think you can wrestle, huh?
Where are you? Where are you?
Now I've got you.
You know, I think I'm gonna spank you.
Now I'm gonna eat you all up.
Oh, what a meal. Look, lamb's leg
and pig's feet and duck's neck.
You're my little lamb, little apple
dumpling, my sugar-pie and I love you.
You big baby.
Keeping her awake.
There, didn't I tell you now?
Mommy's always right.
- There, you see? You get kissed, and I get scolded.
- Oh.
- Mmm.
- Kiss Daddy good night.
- Good night, my little "g-nom-e."
- I'm not a "g-nom-e," am I, Mommy?
No, darling.
You're Mommy's little elfie.
Then if I'm an elfie,
what are you?
Well, I'm a... I'm a...
- Good night, darling.
- Good night, Mommy.
Come here.
Tell me what you bought me
for a birthday present.
- Oh, no. That's a secret.
- Will you tell me if I guess?
- Mmm, well, maybe.
- A pair of roller skates?
- No.
- A dollhouse?
Aw, Daddy. If you tell me, I'll tell you
what I'm gonna get you for your birthday.
- Oh, no. I wanna be surprised.
- Will you tell me for a kiss?
- Well, that's awful tempting, but...
- I bet I know. A ballet dress.
- A ballet dress. Now, what made you think of that?
- 'Cause that's what I want most.
Come on now, you little "g-nom-e."
You've gotta go to sleep.
I'm gonna get a ballet dress.
I'm gonna get a ballet dress.
- Don't tell Mommy I told you.
- I won't.
Now, come on.
You snap those eyes shut.
- I will if you sing to me.
- All right.
Rock-a-bye baby
On the treetop
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
When the bough bends
the cradle will fall
Down will come baby
cradle and all
- Yippee!
- Oh, now, come on, darling. You go to sleep.
You're going to get me in trouble
with your mother. Good night now.
- Have you been in there all this time?
- Uh-huh.
- Did you tell her about her present?
- Who, me?
- Gee, won't she look cute in that.
- It's just darling.
- It cost an awful lot.
- Well, it's for Shirley, isn't it?
She only has a birthday
once a year.
- Every day is her birthday with you.
- And why shouldn't it be?
- We better hide it from her.
- Say, here's another little gadget
I bought for Shirley.
- What is it?
- Take a look.
- I don't see a thing.
- No, but we do.
Oh, Eddie, you and your tricks.
You're not going to give it to the baby.
You're making her as bad as you are.
- Say, how about going
to the movies with us tonight?
- Oh, thanks.
- But we can't leave Shirley.
- They're showing 10,000 Years
in Sing Sing at the Cameo.
- Gee, what a long stretch.
- They say it's awful funny.
Not for my dough.
- Well, come on, Jane. We'll be late.
- Larry, what's your hurry?
- If you miss three or four years,
it don't make any difference.
- Have a good time.
- Thanks. Well, I'm sorry
you won't come with us.
- So long.
- Good-bye.
- Hey, Larry?
- Yeah?
We gotta be on the job early. Stop by
and we'll dunk a couple of doughnuts.
- Right.
- And say, let me know
what the guy did to get 10,000 years.
- So long.
- So long.
Good morning everybody.
The first exercise this morning
is a simple one.
Cross the left foot
in front of the right.
Now bend the trunk,
grasp the ankles with both hands.
Ready? Now, in this position, march eight
steps forward and eight steps backward.
Ready? One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four.
Back, three, two, one.
Four, three, two, one.
That's fine.
Now here's the next exercise.
Plant your feet on the floor 18 inches apart.
Bend the trunk forward.
Hands straight down.
Swing your arms upward
and leap about-face...
landing in the same position
that you started.
Are you ready?
All right, go.
One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four.
That's splendid.
The next one is even more simple
than the last one.
Stand opposite a table,
right foot on the floor...
and the left on the table.
Now bend down,
touch the left knee with the face.
Repeat four times.
Are you ready?
All right.
One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four.
- Whew!
- Now, I know you feel better.
And now for
the reducing exercise.
Now sit on the floor.
You're all going to enjoy this.
Raise the body supporting yourselves
on arms and legs, knees bent.
Now leap forward,
grasshopper fashion.
Six counts and reverse.
Ready? Go.
One, two, three, four,
five, six.
Back, five, four, three,
two, one. That's it.
Now sit erect. Let's start the day
with a good, hearty laugh.
My goodness.
I'll bet Daddy isn't up yet.
You go outside
and play, darling.
Come on, sleeping sickness.
Get up.
- What time is it?
- What time do you want?
It's time you were up
out of that bed.
I wasn't sleeping.
I was thinking.
- Hurry up. Your breakfast will be spoiled.
- Ow! What are you doing?
Top of the morning to you.
And the heat of the evening to you.
- Hey, what are you so pleased about?
- Nothing in particular.
Oh, don't try to kid me. It's written
all over your face. Go look at the mirror.
Congratulations, Larry.
She's a great girl.
You bet she is. And say, we'll never
be able to thank Eddie enough...
- for getting that job for me.
- He was only too glad to do it.
Come on now. Sit down
and have your coffee.
- Aren't you waiting for Eddie?
- I should wait and eat a cold breakfast?
Not for any husband. Sometimes I get
so irritated, I could give him poison.
Yeah, and I get so mad, I could take it.
What do you know about that?
To hear you two in the morning, you'd think
you were ready tojump at each other's throats.
In the morning?
What about the rest of the day?
Well, I just hopeJane and me
get along as well as you two.
Yes, Larry and Jane
got engaged last night.
Well, I don't why a fine girl likeJane
wants to marry a mug like you.
- Well, thanks.
- The bride isn't here,
so I may as well kiss this dummy.
Eddie, got a cigarette?
Sure. Here.
Help yourself.
And I bit for that.
Eddie, will you ever grow up?
Those are just for moochers.
Here, have one of these.
Say, didn't you tell me last night about
some work you had to do on the car this morning?
- Come on. We'll be late.
- A fella never gets a chance
to get any breakfast around here.
Well, you oughtn't to have
so much sleep in the morning.
- Come on.
- Bye.
- Hello, Shirley.
- Hello, Mr. O'Hara.
- So, you're Eddie Ellison's kid?
- I'm not a kid. I'm a girl.
- And today is my birthday.
- Well.
If I'd have knowed it,
I'd have bought you a present.
- My birthday isn't over yet.
- Oh, isn't it?
It won't be over
until after the party.
Do you wanna come?
We're having ice cream.
Well, I don't like ice cream,
but maybe I'll come anyway.
And maybe you can bring
the present with you.
- There's my daddy.
- Trigger Stone.
Shirley, come here. Come on. Run up.
Your mother wants you.
- Why?
- Never mind. Go ahead. Skip.
Don't forget
my present, mister.
- Bye, Daddy.
- Bye.
Surprised to see me, huh? Listen, you guys,
you gotta help me. That's why I'm here.
- We can't talk here.
- No. Come on.
- I pulled a job last night...
- Not so loud.
I want you guys to help me
get rid of the stuff.
It'll be a cinch for you.
All you gotta do is peddle the stuff,
and we'll split it 50/50.
- You got us wrong, Trigger.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
- That goes for both of us.
- I ain't asking you to do nothing crooked.
- Any fence will grab what I got.
- Sure and any cop, too, and us with it.
Nothin' doing. Besides, it ain't doing us
any good bein' seen with you.
Now lay off of us, and don't
hang around here either.
Come on, Larry.
We're late.
Daddy, don't be late
for my party.
I won't.
Things are getting pretty hot
around Park Avenue.
- There was a job pulled at 1170 last night.
- That's in my district.
I want you to handle the job. The Stuart Carson
pearls were stolen shortly after midnight.
Just the kind of a job that Trigger Stone
would pull. I want you to round him up.
I'm sorry, Welch, but we prefer not
to employ men who use your tactics.
Yeah? I get results, don't I?
Say, listen, last night the Stuart Carson
pearls were stolen, weren't they?
You've got a $50,000
insurance policy on 'em.
All right. Give me Daniels, give me a little
authority, I'll recover those in three days.
- Have you got a lead?
- Have I? Wait till you hear it.
Huh. Say, that reward of $5,000
is practically in my pocket right now.
Are you sure Ellison brought the Carson's
car in late yesterday and met his pal here?
- That's right.
- They didn't come back last night?
- No.
- You sure of that? That's all I wanted to know.
- Gee, you look like a general.
- Never mind the looks.
Do you think I'll be able to drive
the car to suit Mr. Carson?
You drive better than I do now.
Guess you can take the wheel tomorrow.
- Hi, Eddie.
- Well, if it isn't the old snooper himself.
All dressed up in his two rubber heels.
That makes three of you... heels.
- Funny fella, huh?
- Say, are you here on business or pleasure?
Pleasure. I can't tell you how glad
I am to see you boys again.
That's too bad we haven't the day off.
Then we could take you for a ride.
That'd be a pleasure.
Well, so long.
We've got a very busy day ahead of us.
Oh. If Welch's brains were in his feet,
he might be able to think.
I wish I'd poked him in the nose,
just for old time's sake.
Listen, you did that once. Next time it's my turn.
- Wouldn't he love to put the hooks in us again.
- You said it.
- I wonder if he's got a job.
- Maybe somebody hired him just for laughs.
- How does that half-wit
get away with his racket?
- I don't know...
but I hope that's the last we ever see
of that ugly pan of his.
Yeah. Ugly is right.
Well, boys,
thanks for the ride.
- I wonder what he wants with the boss?
- I don't know.
- Maybe we made him sore.
- Gee, I got it.
Maybe he's gonna tell Carson
we were in Sing Sing.
- I'm Special Investigator Welch.
The Carsons are expecting me.
- Very well, sir.
Hiya, Daniels.
- Anything new?
- Flannigan's in there. He's covered all the servants.
- Huh. Barking up the wrong tree as usual, eh?
- How about the chauffeurs?
They just dropped me off here.
Have the butler bring 'em in.
- You know what to do?
- Right.
How are you,
Mr. and Mrs. Carson?
I'm the special investigator
from the insurance company.
Mrs. Carson, don't you worry.
You'll soon be wearing your pearls again.
- Have you found them?
- No. But I'm pretty sure
your chauffeurs are mixed up in it.
I can't believe it.
They're such nice-looking boys.
Yeah, well you can't go too much on looks.
They both got prison records.
Why didn't you
tell us that, Mr. Flannigan?
Because if they're innocent,
why prejudice you against them?
- Here they are now.
- Well, I don't want to be here
when you're questioning them.
Come in, boys.
Morning, Mr. Carson.
I don't suppose
you boys know...
there was a pearl necklace stolen
from this house last night?
Well, what do you know
about that?
- What do you know about it?
- This is the first I've heard about it.
You're not trying to pin it
on us are you, Welch?
- No. I'm just gonna ask you
a few questions, that's all.
- Sure. Go ahead.
Where did you go after you left
the garage last night?
I went right home, and after dinner,
my wife and I went to bed.
- Anybody with you?
- No.
- Where did you go?
- I went to the movies with my girl.
- What was the name of the picture?
- 10,000 Years In Sing Sing.
- You oughta see it. The crook was a real guy.
- Yeah, a regular fella.
I'll check your alibis later.
Wanna ask 'em anything else,
Mr. Flannigan?
No. I think you've more than
covered the ground, Mr. Welch.
- Good day, Mr. Carson.
We'll keep in touch with you.
- Thank you, Mr. Flannigan.
Don't worry, Mr. Carson.
We won't overlook anything.
I'm sure you won't, Mr. Welch. Why didn't
you boys tell me that you'd been in prison?
Well, I'll tell you why,
Mr. Carson.
Because every time we told an employer
about our jail record, we didn't get the job.
So after a few tough breaks,
we decided not to say anything about it.
But we've been going straight,
and that's on the level.
I'm sorry you didn't trust
my judgment.
But under the circumstances,
I can't very well keep you.
Well, I'm sorry you feel
that way about it, Mr. Carson...
but I-I guess...
we understand.
- Good-bye, sir.
- Mr. Simpson will send you your checks.
Yes, sir.
Most unfortunate
this had to happen.
Mr. Carson, from now on, every move these
boys make will be watched by one of my men.
Just leave it to me.
So long.
- So long, Jenkins.
- Good-bye, Eddie.
Come on. Quit worrying, will you?
This ain't the only job in town.
I wasn't thinking of the job.
I was thinking of Welch.
That bird has got
something up his sleeve.
Aw, sometimes I wonder
if going straight really pays.
- Hey, cut out that kind of talk, will you?
- But what'llJane think?
She's a hundred percent for you.
She wouldn't think anything against you
any more than Kay would doubt me.
We're not gonna tell 'em
anything tonight though.
- Why not?
- I'm not gonna let anything
spoil Shirley's birthday party.
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Shirley
Happy birthday to you
Come on, Eddie. Speech.
Come on. Make a speech.
Uh, ladies and gentlemen...
heirs and heiresses...
this is indeed
an unexpected honor.
And when an unexpected honor
is thrust upon one...
it is, uh... it is...
an unexpected honor.
- Er, uh...
- You better read it, Daddy.
I better read it.
- And now a speech from Shirley.
- Oh, yes. From Shirley.
Up you go.
I wanna thank everybody for the presents
you gave me. Very, very much.
And I hope someday when it's your birthday
that I can give them all back to you.
Now that you folks have heard two of the world's
most famous after-dinner speakers...
we're gonna proceed
with the entertainment.
Larry, strike up the band.
You all follow me.
- Party's still going on, eh?
- Yeah, they seem to be having a good time.
Well, let 'em celebrate tonight.
It'll be my party tomorrow night. You just...
- Leave it to you. I know.
- Yeah.
- Good evening, Mr. Flannigan.
- Good evening, Mr. Welch.
- Nice fella, Flannigan.
- You said it.
Ladies and gentlemen,
your attention this way.
At great expense, we have succeeded in
importing, for the first time on any roof...
and for your entertainment...
that famous star,
Mademoiselle Shirley Ellison.
Never liked a copycat
or the things they do
But it seems that you
must have changed my mind
- Me?
- Yes, you.
I became a copycat
and I love it too
All the things you go for
Are the things I go for
I like what you like
beans and oyster stew
And I like what you like
on account I love you
I go where you go
Anyplace'll do
And I'll go where you go
on account I love you
You're my chocolate sundae
You're my sugar bun
Apple pie and lollipop
all rolled into one
I say what you say
even black is blue
And I'll say what you say
on account of I love you
It's your turn now, Daddy.
I like what you like beans and oyster stew
And I like what you like
on account of I love you
I'll go where you go
Anyplace will do
And I'll go where you go
on account of I love you
You're my chocolate sundae
and my sugar bun
Apple pie and lollipop
all rolled into one
I'll say what you say
Even black is blue
And I'll say what you say
on account of I love you
Come on, Daddy.
No, wait, Daddy.
On account of I love you
Come on, baby.
Take a bow.

Come on, darling.
It's bedtime.
But, Mommy, it's my birthday.
Can't I stay up?
But, darling, you have stayed up.
It's past 9:00. Come on. Come on, Jane.
Well, it's gonna be tough...
but, come on,
let's go down and explain.
Just a minute, Jane. I'm going to put
Shirley to bed. Come on, sweet.
I had the best time.
That's good, dear.
- Mommy?
- Yes, dear?
Is anything wrong?
Why no, dear.
What made you think that?
Well, I can tell
when you're worried.
You look sick, and when you
look that way, it makes me wanna cry.
Why, no, dear. There's nothing to cry about.
Why, everybody had a fine time.
Let me see you smile.
Come on. Come on.
- Come on.
- There. How's that?
- Where's Kay?
- She's just putting Shirley to bed.
- What's happened?
- Well, the breadwinners have stopped winning.
Yeah. Looks like
we're in for a little vacation.
- You mean you were discharged?
- Well, not exactly.
We were canned.
- Why, they can't let you out for nothing.
- No. I know they can't.
But they did.
Welch saw to that.
- Who's Welch?
- He's an old friend of ours.
Will you excuse us for a minute?
I wanna talk to Eddie alone.
Now listen, Eddie. When we were married,
we said we'd go 50/50 on everything, didn't we?
- Mm-hmm.
- Well, that meant joy and trouble too.
You always let me in on the joy,
now why not the trouble?
- There's nothing more to tell.
- Eddie, look at me.
- Did Larry have anything to do with this?
- No.
Well, then we haven't
a thing to worry about.
Oh, no.
Not a thing... except Welch.
He'd like nothing better
than to send us both up again.
I'm not worried exactly,
but it's getting my goat.
Oh, Eddie, be yourself.
It's not me I'm thinking about.
It's you and Shirley.
Well, everything's all right.
We've got each other, haven't we?
Yeah, but I guess there goes
that little house up in Yonkers.
Another year, and we could've
saved enough to get it.
Well, you'll get another job,
and maybe a better one.
It's not so easy
for a fella with a record.
Now come on, honey.
Don't let it get you down.
it's my fight too.
Feel better now, don't you?
Oh, that's the stuff.
How could I feel bad
with you around?
Why, you're a sweetheart,
a wife and a mother all rolled into one.
A fella couldn't miss out
with a pal like you.
Hey, what's the matter?
Why, you're crying.
No, I'm not.
l... There.
That's right. Now it ain't
gonna rain no more.
I wonder why Welch is giving us
the absent treatment.
The suspense is driving me nuts.
I wish he'd get it over with.
Oh, now forget
about Welch, will you?
We're going on about our business
just as if nothing had happened...
which means I've got to
buy Shirley a new pair of shoes.
That child is
death on shoes.
Now look. You two boys give the want ad
column your undivided attention.
Your turn now, Shirley.
We'll try some more after school.
- Come on, Suzanne. Bye.
- Good-bye.
- Mrs. O'Brien. Mrs. O'Brien.
- Yes, darling?
- Next year I'm going to school.
- Bless your heart.
- Good morning, Mrs. Ellison.
- Good morning, Mrs. O'Brien.
- Where you going, Mommy?
- Shopping.
- May I go with you?
- No, sweetheart. You stay here and play, hmm?
- But don't go away from the front of the house.
- All right. I won't, Mommy.
Hello there.
Is your father at home?
He's upstairs.
He's having breakfast.
Why didn't you come
to my birthday party?
I couldn't make it, kid.
Come here.
Look, I brought you a present.
Take 'em upstairs and play with 'em.
- But don't lose 'em.
- Oh, thanks, mister.
This one sounds great.
expert automobile mechanic.
"Owner of garage offers bright young man
excellent opportunity...
- to share in quick profits."
- Well, that's us.
Wait a minute.
"Only $500 capital necessary."
- I knew there was a catch in it somewhere.
- You can't guess what I got.
- Don't bother me. I'm busy.
- But, Daddy...
- Run along.
- But I wanna play hide-and-seek.
- I've no time for games.
- I'll hide it, and you find it.
"Wanted, salesman to sell popular novelty article.
No experience necessary.
Salary and commission."
Here's another one.
- Don't peek, Daddy.
- "No experience necessary."
Hey, we might try this one.
"Be a dentist. Salary while learning.
- ACME Tooth Corporation."
- There was one in here
about a bond salesman. I saw it...
- I see we have company.
- Still bouncing around on your rubber heels, huh?
Well, it's certainly nice to see you two birds
together talking things over.
Figure you can
knock us both off with one stone.
Quit stalling. I'm here to find out
about those pearls.
- What do you want to find out about 'em?
- Where are they?
- I don't know.
- Don't make me laugh.
- Don't make him laugh.
- Don't make him laugh.
Those pearls
haven't been pawned.
The necklace hasn't got wings.
There's only one answer, and it's right here.
- If you feel like that about it,
start frisking Larry and me.
- All right. I will.
No, I'm too wise to you.
Ha. You wouldn't have it on you.
What kind of a sap do you think I am?
I don't know. What kind
of a sap are you?
Now let's see. If I was in your spot,
I wonder where I'd hide that necklace.
Let me see.
Maybe you'd swallow it.
I read in Popular Mechanics where Zulus
hide jewels by sewing 'em under their skin.
That'd be all right if we were Zulus.

"On commission basis.

"Molder wanted

But you have to learn that, I think.
- Here's an all-around...
- So that's where you buried 'em, eh?
- Is it?
- What does that cross mean?
Well, "X" marks the spot for the doghouse
to put you in when we get the house.
You remember, that's the house I was going
to build for Kay till our friend spoiled it.
Paris is a wonderful place.
- So it's funny, eh?
- Yeah.
Now look what you've done. But don't tell
my wife I did it, 'cause I'll squeal on you.
- Where did you hide those beads?
- If I knew, do you think I'd be
chump enough to tell you?
- I'm gonna go over this house
with a fine-tooth comb.
- Don't let anything bite you.
Daddy, have you found them yet?
- Hello, little girl.
- Who are you?
I'm a friend
of your dad's.
Say, have you seen a nice,
fancy string of beads around here?
- Are you playing too?
- Huh?
- Are you playing too?
- Sure. I'm in the game.
- Well, go ahead and look.
- You're a kidder just like your dad...
aren't you, kid?
Now look what you did.
I'm gonna tell my mommy on you.
I don't care who you tell.
That's not in the game, mister.
You shouldn't do that.
I like you. You're
a very nice little girl.
You know, we're gonna
become great friends.
Now look here. Now you tell me
where you hid them...
and I'll buy you
a nice ball and bat.
- Where's your other eyeglass?
- What?
Your other eyeglass.
Oh, you wait.
Your father did that.
Wait'll I see him.
- What's in that box?
- I won't tell you.
- You give me that box.
- I will not.
- Give me that.
- I won't.
- Give the nice man the nice box.
- I won't.
- I only wanna see what's inside of it.
- There's nothing in it.
There is too. You can't fool me.
Now give me the box.
That's the girl.
- That drawing of mine sure burned him up, huh?
- Yeah.
- You got a match?
- Yeah.
You know, Welch leads
with his chin every ti...
What the...
I know.
- Here. Y-You take 'em.
- I don't want 'em.
- Here!
- Well-Well, what'll I do with them?
- Put 'em in your pocket.
- I got a hole in my pocket.
Don't stand there holding 'em all day.
Welch sees them, it's curtains for the two of us.
Oh, boy. These are getting hot already.
We got to get them undercover.
- Yeah. I know. The radio.
- No. That's the first place he'd look.
Yeah, yeah. I got it. The coffeepot.
He'd never look in the same place twice.
Now sit down.
Be calm, cool.
Act natural. L-Like me.
Now see here. You fellas can
make this search long and tough...
or you can make it
short and snappy.
- Which is it gonna be?
- Well, we've done everything we could to help you.
Yeah? Well, maybe you think you're putting
something over on me, but you're not.
- I think I'll have a cup of coffee.
- That's cold!
- Let me get you some hot.
- No. I like it cold.
Don't drink that. I mean,
uh, it tastes like dishwater.
Now, I've got some
very fine 12% beer.
Don't bother.
This'll do.
I never drink on the job.
Don't do that! I mean,
you'll-you'll stir up the grounds.
That don't taste so good.
- You're right. It does taste like dishwater.
- Tell me when you're ready.
Daddy has no time
to play now, dear.
- Well, hurry up.
- Good-bye.
- Say, what is this?
- Why, just a gag.
Shirley and I are always playing games.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
- Where does that door lead to?
- Oh, that's where I sleep.
It's one of the finest little rooms
you ever saw in your life.
I'd just love to
show it to you. Now look.
- So this is your bedroom?
- Yeah.
Yeah? What's that button for?
A secret panel?
- No. That's the bed.
- Don't kid me.
I'll have you up
for manslaughter.
- He's getting warm. He's hot.
- He's cold.
- He's hot.
- He's cold.
It'll be hot for you birds
when I hang this onto you.
- Where does that door lead to?
- To the bathroom. Wanna take a bath?
Daddy, you didn't fool me.
I got the prize.
Get her out of here.
Yeah-Yeah. You're right. Here's the prize.
Go and buy yourself some ice cream.
- Goody-goody-goody.
- Yeah. Goody-goody.
Yeah. Come on.
Where we gonna
hide 'em now?
Just the thing.
That's the first time I knew
what a carpet-sweeper was for.
- Open it.
- Open.
- Here, here.
- All right. I got it. Hurry up.
Okay. Wait a minute.
Wait a minute. Give it to me.
Here, hold these.
I'll get it open.
I got it.
Drop 'em in there, quick.
Now if we can only hide this
carpet-sweeper, I know we'd be safe.
Yeah, if we could hide the apartment,
Welch might quit his job.
Oh, yeah? They're not in there.
You can't fool me.
- No. You can't fool him.
- No. You can't fool him.
Morning, Mr. Ellison. Can I borrow
your carpet-sweeper?
Can you...
I'll say you can, Anna.
- Thanks. I'll bring it right back.
- That's all right.
You keep it
just as long as you want.
Well, this is round one, but don't either one
of you birds think I'm through with you yet.
Come up sometime, we'll play
"Button, button, who's got the button."
- Whew!
- Whoo.
Boy, that was a close...
Good morning, Annie.
Anything new?
Same old thing, Mr. O'Hara.
Nothin' ever happens around this place.
Give me a ride,
will you, Annie?
Sure. Get on.
Come on, mister.
You wanna ride with me?
I might break it. Besides,
I don't want to play anymore.
You're not much good
at playin' games, are you?
All right, Shirley, get off.
Come on, kitty.
- So you work here, huh?
- Mm-hmm.
I'll bet you're a winner
when you're all dressed up.
Oh, go on with you.
Say, what would you do if you happened
to come across a real pearl necklace?
You'd be surprised.
Wait a minute, Mrs. Ellison.
I want to talk to you.
- I'm not interested, Mr. Welch.
- Maybe you will be when you
know you can help Eddie.
That's it.
I thought you'd be sensible.
Never mind that.
What about Eddie?
Well, that's more like it. I didn't think
you'd like to see Eddie making a long trip.
What do you mean?
Now listen. Carson won't prosecute
if he gets those pearls back.
Now I figure that Eddie's
protecting Larry.
I want you to go to Larry
and get those pearls.
Tell him that you'll return 'em
with no questions asked.
And after you get 'em,
all you gotta do is to give 'em to me.
Yeah, and you'll collect the reward
and send them both back to prison.
No, thanks.
Now get this, Mr. Welch.
Eddie and Larry
are both running straight.
I know it, you hear?
I know it.
And yet what does it get them?
You hound them every step they take.
You put them out of one job
and keep them from getting another.
Those boys haven't done anything wrong,
and you've got to let them alone!
Now you get out of here!
Get out!
- Are you still here?
- Uh-huh.
- Want some of my ice cream?
- No, thanks.
Oh, go ahead.
I ate the other one...
and if I finish this,
I'll get a tummy ache.
No, thanks. I've already
got a tummy ache.
Oh, how awful.!
- How did Shirley ever get hold of them?
- That's what I'd like to know.
- Where are they now?
- In the carpet sweeper.
- What? Well, let's get the carpet sweeper.
- Annie's got it.
Hey, Eddie! I got it back!
- Here it is.
- Give me it.
We've got to get them back to Mr. Carson.
I know he'll believe our story.
Oh, we'll get 'em back.
Just a minute now.
- Open it the way you did before.
- "Open it the way I did..."
- What do you wanna do? Kill me?
- Leave me alone!
- It's on the other side!
- Wait a minute.
- This thing is harder than Welch's head.
- Let me try it.
Need any help?
I'll take that.
Wait a minute. Oh, boy, you weren't
gonna fool me much, were you?
That sweeper's mine. I've got to clean up
the mess you've made around here.
- Give me that. Give me that sweeper!
- Hey, hey! Look out!
What's the combination
of this crib?
It's empty.
No fooling!
Well, you were lookin'
for dirt, and you found it.
Yes? 48th Precinct,
McLane speaking.
What? Trigger Stone?
Yes, we had him cornered, but before we could
close in, he winged Dugan and got away.
All right. The boys
will be right over.
We've just got
to find those pearls.
And how. Welch is sure
to come back here tonight.
I'm ready to give up. We've searched
everywhere in the house but here.
Well, then let's go through
everything in this cellar.
- Oh, Mrs. Perkins?
- Oh, good evening, Mrs. Ellison.
Good evening.
Has Annie come back yet?
No, Mrs. Ellison.
It's her night off.
Oh. Thanks.
All right, you.
Lift 'em up.
Keep 'em up. One phony move,
and I'll let you have it.
- What do you want?
- Plenty.
Every cop in New York's lookin' for me.
I'm trapped like a rat.
- Yeah, the rat part's right.
- Shut up!
Kick in with them pearls. Another killing
more or less don't mean nothin' to me.
- They're not here.
- I gave them to your kid.
- Well, she hasn't got 'em, and that's on the level.
- Don't kid me.
I think we've got him cornered.
He's somewhere in this block.
Watch your step, fellows.
Remember he's a killer.
Gaines, you and Bagnall
take Seventh Avenue.
Conselman, you go
around the other way.
Butcher, you take the alley.
I'll watch this street.
Kitty, kitty, kitty.!
Oh, my beads!
Daddy, I found them!
Daddy, I found them!
Daddy, I found them.
Hey, mister,
your beads were lost, but I found them.
That's fine. You're a smart little girl.
Now go on, cut me loose.
Are you playing
the game too?
Of course I am. Your old man tied me up.
Let's you and me fool him.
Do you think
that would be fair?
Why, sure it would. It'll be a big joke,
and we'll all bust laughin'.
Now, go on. Get something
and cut me loose.
Hey, not that!
Get a knife.
That's it. That's the ticket.
Now there.
That's it. Now come on.
Take it easy.
I am.
Hey, listen. Wait a minute.
You'll cut my head off.
- That's all right.
- Well, now look out.
- Where are you headed for?
- I got Trigger Stone
tied up in the apartment. Come on!
Won't your dad be surprised
when he finds out I'm gone?
You said he'd bust laughin'.
He sure will. I left my hat
in the other room.
- Hey, mister, you gave me those beads!
- Get away, you little brat!
- You gave me those beads for my birthday!
- Your birthday's over.
He gave the pearls to Shirley.
That's why he came back. Hurry!
You bad man.!
Give me back those beads.!
- Shirley!
- You give me those beads, you bad man.!
Give me those beads, will ya!
Give me 'em!
Hey, mister!
Eddie, what's happened?
Eddie, what's happened?
- Mommy.! Daddy.!
- Trigger Stone! He's got Shirley!
You give me those beads!
- Mommy! Daddy! He's hurting me!
- Shut up!
Help! Daddy! Mommy!
Help! Daddy! Mommy!
- Don't be a fool! You haven't got a gun!
- Daddy, he's hurting me!
Take care of your wife.
Don't shoot!
He's using Shirley as a shield!
- Eddie, what are we gonna do?
- Help! Mommy!
Help! Mommy! Daddy!
- Eddie, what are we gonna do?
- The roof! Come on!
- What's the matter, Eddie?
- Trigger's got Shirley on the roof! Come on.
Help! Help!
Help! Daddy!
- You stay here.
- Shirley!
Stay in here!
Larry, keep the girls here.
Don't let Trigger
get out this way.
- Help! Mommy!
- Shirley.! Let me go.!
- I want my baby.! Shirley.!
- Daddy! Ow!
Daddy.! Ow.!
Eddie.! Eddie.!
Oh, he shot him.!
- Let me go! I want my baby!
- You can't do anything out there, Kay.
I want my baby.!
Let me go.!
Help! Mommy! Daddy!
My baby.! Let me go.!
I want my baby.!
He's gonna hurt her.!
Hey, who are you?
- I'm Inspector Welch
from the National Insurance Company.
- Oh, okay.
Help.! Help.! Help.!
Shirley.! Shirley.!
Wait a minute, Daddy.
- My baby!
- You bad man!
Here's the beads, Daddy!
Shirley! Shirley, my baby!
- Mommy, Mommy!
- Oh, Mommy's darling. Mommy's baby.
Oh, Eddie, Eddie,
are you badly hurt?
- No, it's only a scratch.
- Look, Daddy and Mommy. I got the beads.
Take charge of him, boys.
Well, well, well, well.
Just as I thought.
They were here
all the time.
You didn't fool me
for a minute. None of you.
All right, Flannigan.
I'll handle this from now on.
Oh, no, you won't!
From now on, you boys have
got nothin' to worry about.
You'll get your jobs back,
and Welch'll never bother you again.
And as for you, miss,
you get the $5,000 reward.
Do I get the beads too?
Wait a minute.
I'm not gonna stand for this.
- Oh, you won't? Well, now you
listen to me, you big phony!
- Wait a minute.
I got a notion to run you in
for interfering with an officer!
Now wait a minute!
Wait a minute...
