Tomorrow We Live (1942) Script

Where are you going?

I don't know.

Oh Julie, sit down and finish your dinner.

This is no way to carry on about nothing at all.

Nothing at all?

Don't take things so hard, Julie.

You keep out of this. It's strictly a family matter and not for the help.

Don't you feel awfully guilty about barking and snapping at everyone?

Guilty? About what?

Do you think I'm blind?

You think I have no eyes or ears or common-sense?

I think you have too much of that.

I rent my sheds for storage space.

And you think that I .. Pop, why do you lie?

I'm leaving you. Julie, I'm ..

I've never raised a hand to you in my life.

And I never raised a hand to your Ma while she was living.

Because I ain't that kind of a man, Julie.

But you drive me near crazy.

Pop. What?

Will you tell me the truth. Yes.

What's your connection with The Ghost?

Well nothing, necessarily. I ..

I just rent him my shed. That's about all.

There are better and more accessible sheds than ours.

We're off the main highway and hard to reach.

Why do The Ghost's men always load and unload at night?

Why is it they're always padlocked? Julie.

I've answered that question a hundred times today.

The sheds are cooler at night.

And .. they're locked against thieves.

But you're not a thief, are you Pop?

Then why are they locked against you?

Why can't you get in your own sheds?

Who says I can't? Can you?

Why, sure I can. Then why can't I get in?

Them is no place for a girl.

And I don't see that it's any of your business or concern what's in the sheds.

Isn't it?

Among other things, there are tires in those sheds.

Well, what of it? What's wrong with tires?

And don't you go shooting your mouth off to anybody either.

Oh, if it's so above board to have hundreds of tires ..

Julie, I see we've come to a showdown.

Yes, Pop.

I sent you through school and you never had to work a day in your life.

And I sent you money regular. Just like a clock.

Too regularly. What do you mean by that?

I've been here four weeks.

I haven't seen a half dozen customers come in or out of the Busy Bee.

Only an odd assortment of characters who pad in and out and never eat or drink.

I thought I'd love the buttes.

You mean you thought you'd run away to the buttes?

I didn't run away. No?

A girl studies to be a schoolteacher all her life.

And her father sends her money all through state college.

And in the last term, she quits.

No. That don't make sense.

And I didn't ask you to come down here. Remember that, Julie.

I'm beginning to understand why.

You don't know nothing.

But I'll find out tonight.

Oh yeah? Just how?

I'm going to The Dunes and I'm going to see The Ghost.

Well go ahead. Nobody is stopping you.

Believe me, nobody is stopping me!


Well, now what am I going to do? Don't ask me.

I'm only the help. I don't belong in this family.

Oh, don't be contrary.

Melba, as a woman I'm asking you, what shall I do?

Well, if I was you I'd start shivering.

Before she finds out.

Melba, you got to do something.

It ain't my funeral.

Oh, you know ..

Okay .. I'll do what I can.

But I'm doing it for Julie. Well, so am I.

We'll see. Okay. You tell her that ..

I'll do it in my own way. A woman's way.

That's an awful pretty dress.

Who sent you?

Why do you say that? But, I'll tell you something.

What? He feels awfully bad.

Why?

For losing his temper all the time.

He only loses his temper when I ask him questions.

Otherwise, he's the sweetest man on earth.

He is sweet, isn't he.

Melba.

Tell me something. Sure.

You've been here a long time. What has Pop to do with The Ghost?

I know you must know something.

Well now, isn't that funny.

That's just what I came up to ask you about.

The Ghost.

Isn't that a crazy name for a man to go by?

What about him?

Well first of all, don't go tonight, honey.

As one girl to another. Look, if you can ..?

I tell you, Julie.

The Ghost is no good. I know.

Oh, you do? That isn't it.

You've got brains and education. You've got class.

Flattery. That isn't it, sugar.

I'm scared.

I don't want The Ghost to get his hands on you.

Get his hands on me? Julie, he's woman-crazy.

Don't be a child.

This is no social call.

Hello, Pop.

She is?

Oh fine, fine. You know I've been wanting to meet her.

What are you talking about? I'm not going to spill anything to her.

No.

Now listen. Behave yourself, will you.

With me, a bargain is a bargain. You understand?

Look, we came here to talk to you.

Why don't you fellows relax and go home? I'll see you tomorrow night.

Just a minute, Ghost. Make it snappy.

Here it is. The Federal men are too close for safety. You understand?

Three raids in Phoenix last week.

I'm entertaining tonight, boys. How do I look? Pretty sharp, huh?

Look, this business. If you don't care to handle this, Big Charlie does.

Why don't you relax? I told you to go on home and I'll see you tomorrow night.

And give my regards to Big Charlie. Yeah?

Take it from me. He sends his to you too.

Come on, Steve.

Ali Baba. "Yes, sir?"

Send me up two in my apartment. And the very best. You understand?

"Yes, sir." I want to relax.

Yes, sir.

Tell me, honey.

Can you really read minds? Or is it all a fakeroo?

What do the customers say? They say you're terrific.

The mental mystic. What do you think?

I think you're sensational.

Can you read my mind? I already have.

Relax.

[ Door knocks ]

Come in.

Announcing Bronson's daughter. Send her in.

Step in, lady.

Remarkable. Absolutely remarkable.

Mister ..?

Martin. Alexander Caesar Martin. Yes, I know.

May I speak with you for a minute? You're a beautiful girl.

It's about my father .. and you.

Prettier than a picture.

Look, Mr Martin. I know what's going on.

Prettier than your own picture. It's amazing.

What picture?

Where did you get this?

My hobby. Collecting people I don't know.

Why do you do this?

He doesn't look like a professor, does he.

Doesn't he?

Relax, honey.

I have a flair for observation. That's all. Let me show you. Come here.

So I see.

I still say .. he doesn't look like a professor.

Hiya, army. Hello.

Are you Mr Bronson? That's right.

What can I do for you? I'm Bob Lord.

Bob Lord? Wow ..

Hi-ho, silver.

What? Julie's Bob?

Well, I'm mighty glad to get acquainted with you, son.

Come in and sit down. Right.

What are you doing in these parts?

I'm stationed up at Camp Adams, Mr Bronson.

Sorry to seem to be in such a rush.

But it took me longer to find this place than I figured.

I have to go right back to camp.

Tell me about Julie, though. How is she?

Well, you should know.

Son, Julie is a funny girl.

She talks a lot about you.

But what she says ain't all flattery.

Well, as long as she never stops talking.

Do you hear from her often? Hear from her?

You don't know she's with me now?

You mean she left school?

You mean you don't know that, either?

Why, no sir. I was nearby so naturally I wanted to meet you.

You know, Julie's always been so proud of you.

Well, has she though?

Oh, you and Julie got busted up. How come?

Well .. well, never mind that.

But man to man, boy. She's hankering for you.

Is she really? Wait until she sets eyes on you.

Boy, I wouldn't miss that for a barrel.

Well, let me surprise her. Why, she ain't in now.

Well, can't you wait?

No, I'm afraid not.

But you'll sure come back, won't you? Don't worry, I'll be back.

Boy, you don't know how glad I am to see you.

Well, that's great. Oh, by the way.

Don't tell Julie I was here, huh?

Yes, I got you. You bet.

Very interesting.

Is that all there is to the story?

Yep .. that's all.

You know .. you're human, after all.

Well.

I figured out, the old man with a pretty girl who'd go to school.

Well, me. I was stuck with the Busy Bee.

Why not set him up in business? Why not?

What do you get out of it?

Don't worry about me.

I can't live very long.

Perhaps a year or two.

And I'll explode .. in here or there.

Explode?

I'll explain. It's all very simple.

When I was a kid I was very hungry.

I never got very much to eat.

Do you know what that does to a little punk?

Awful.

A rich country, a hungry kid.

Well, you figure it out.

Listen, my dear.

There is good in me.

I've got genius, I tell you.

Straighten me out before I kick off. Please give me a break.

You are very clever.

I'm not clever.

I want to tell you something that I wouldn't dare tell anyone else.

I'm the dumbest sap alive.

But if I had a wife.

You see all this?

Over here. I'll show you some more.

Why do I listen to you?

Because you are just as helpless as I am.

Look at this.

I own all this territory.

Do you know what?

No. What?

They call me The Ghost, huh?

Don't tell me, I'll tell you.

They left me for dead, not once, but twice. Tried to rub me out.

Rub me out!

Half crazy, and half dead, I hit the West.

Stone broke. Not a cent.

But I'm a builder.

And all of this could have belonged to your old man.

My father?

I don't understand.

I tell you what, pretty girl.

I'll make a deal with you.

It's all yours.

Mine? Uhuh.

Tonight.

You mustn't ask why.

It doesn't make sense.


Things don't always make sense my dear.

Well, look at me.

I'm a desert exile.

I have perhaps a year or two to live.

But I don't give up.

I've built an empire.

Yes, after a fashion.

I know what you mean. I built it on sand, huh?

And when I go, it goes.

Life should go on shouldn't it, pretty girl.

There is poetry in you.

I can write a poem.

I should have met you a long, long time ago.

Why did you do that?

Why did I? Oh, please don't fight.

All my life I've wanted something clean.

Whatever I want. No!

Whatever I want I get, you hear me?

If I have to smash, it I get it!

Oh.

You've got sort-of lightning changes.

I don't understand you.

A moment ago I saw a flash.

It's still here .. light it.

I almost wish .. in some ..

Crazy, mad way I could.

You can.

And you will. No!

Goodnight. You'll be back, my dear.


Is that you, sugar?

Hello, Mel.

You look like you've seen a ghost.

I did.

Julie, what's the matter?

He's mad.

I don't like the way you said that, honey.

I don't like it myself.

Julie, you're smart. But on a couple of things, I'm smarter.

I told you I knew The Ghost from way back.

I warned you.

Don't be a child. You ain't kidding me.

What do you mean?

It ain't because of your Pop that you are so upset.

No?

No. I know The Ghost.

He's whacky and caving in.

He's got a bullet his brain and a slug in his chest and he makes big of it.

He eats your heart out for sympathy and asks for a break.

And you give it to him.

I won't give him any sympathy.

Suppose I did. Are you crazy?

With a first-rate guy like Bob Lord wanting you?

Bob's a million miles away.

I wonder if I'll ever see him again. Oh Julie, he was here.

He was what?

Well, it was supposed to be a surprise.

I didn't mean to tell you, honest I didn't but .. he's coming back tomorrow.

No.

He's coming. Gee, he's handsome.

Hello. Hello, Julie.

Your face is familiar, but I can't quite place the name.

Well now, you think. Think hard.

I'm thinking, stranger.

Darling.

You must tell me about yourself.

Can I see you somewhere alone?


Julie.

Well, Bob.

It's been a long time.

Hasn't it.

Do you like it here?

I love it.

Julie.

I may have seemed hasty when I enlisted.

And the war did come.

And it was a war worth fighting.

[ Whistle ]

Oh, we're out on a pass.

Can I see tonight about 8 o'clock?

I don't know, Bob.

Well.

I know your date book was always pretty full in college.

Yes. My chemistry professor from Monday to Saturday.

And Sunday. Yes, for variety.

I'll see you tonight, huh?.

Julie.

Julie, there's a phone call for you.

For me? I think it's him.

Tell him I'm not in. Tell him anything.

I don't want to speak to him ever.


Do you mind if I talk to you, Mr Lord?

No. Certainly not.

It's about Julie. She needs to be married.

She needs to be? To you.

If she doesn't, The Ghost will get her for sure.

The ghosts will get her? Not ghosts.

The Ghost in person.

Oh.

Oh, I see.

Well, don't you worry now.

I'll take care of everything. Thanks a million.

You understand now, don't you? Oh, sure.

You bet. Good evening, Lieutenant.

Good evening, Miss Bronson.

So you salute me, Lieutenant?

You've always been my commanding officer.

Have I?

Well, let's go. We're going places. How and where?

It's all set. Come on.

Where are we headed, Bob?

Shush. It's a secret.

Oh Bob, The Dunes .. no.

All through school we sat and looked at that moon.

Tonight .. this is going to be a big evening.

Darling, I'd rather look at the moon.

And listen to the coyotes. Ha .. why?

Bob, you can't afford The Dunes. They're outrageously expensive.

Who cares about money?

Who knows about tomorrow?

Julie, tonight I can afford anything.

But darling. I'm not dressed.

I don't want to go in.

Nonsense. Tonight is the night.


We'll order later.

Is there anything wrong, Julie?

I'll be alright.

I'm not much on making speeches, Ghost.

You know the situation. Go right ahead.

Big Charlie lets you in on his territory as there is room enough for both of you.

There was. That's right.

But people aren't spending like before. What are you talking about?

There's more money now than ever. Not for us.

Since this war, it's a squeeze-play. So we combine.

We'll do the talking, Ghost. Just remember you're not back East any more.

And?

Things are going to be a little bit different.

Go ahead. You'll sell out to Big Charlie.

Supposing I don't want to sell? You'll sell.

Get out of here.

Get out!

Chief. - Yeah? Don't get sore.

Big Charlie ain't kidding around. Oh, why don't you relax?

Put your big hips in the chair and shut up.


I've been a pig-headed, pie-faced fool.

Well, not pie-faced anyway.

Bob.

I really didn't think we'd be in this war. You know that?

Darling .. you know what?

Know what? Good evening.

How are you, Miss Bronson?

Very well, thank you.

Allow me to introduce myself.

I'm Alexander Caesar Martin.

A very close friend of Miss Bronson's.

I'm Bob Lord. A very old friend of Miss Bronson.

Won't you join us? Thanks.

I hear a lot about you, Lieutenant.

Well, I hope it's not all bad.

Mr Martin.

Bob and I haven't seen each other for a long time.

He has to go back to camp soon.

I hope you won't think I'm being rude. I think you're being very rude.

Now just a minute.

Please, Bob.

Alright, Julie.

For your sake.

Hey, boss .. strike one.

Big Charlie? Strike two?

The army .. who's pitching?

I'm pitching.

And I never lose.

And don't you forget it.


Julie.

Can't we take up where we left off?

Bob, we must.


Julie, there is no-one else, is there? Not that it makes a bit of difference.

Doesn't it really?

Well, there was no-one else, was there?

Let me see.

First of all there was Frank.

A student.

Then there was .. Eddie.

A football player.

Not bright .. very strong.

Then there was ..

Let me see.

Number three was Sandy Lake.

He played trombone. In the Tennis Club café.

He used to play for me in the moonlight ..

"The sweet mystery of love."

You really are sweet not to ask any questions, Bob.

You big baby.

Julie.

Will you marry me?

Bob.

Will you?

You know I will.

Anytime.

[ Door knocks ]

[ Door knocks ]

Hello, Bronson.

The middle of the night. What you want?

Open up. It's a matter of business I want to talk about.

Can't it wait? Open up, I said.

Why don't you keep his place clean, huh? What you saying? It's spick and span.

Well, I can't see. Put the lights on.

I don't like the dark.

Well, what do you want? Remember, don't want Julie woke up.

Mind your way of talk. The chief does the talking.

From now on, I give orders around here, you understand?

You always have.

I wanted action. And by action I don't mean frying hamburgers. You got me?

Now remember, Ghost. I've always done just as you said.

But now enough is enough.

Hello, pretty girl. What's happening?

I don't want to be rude. I didn't figure you could hear me. Believe me.

I don't believe you. Alright. As you wish.

Let's get this whole thing straight. I mean to.

Right. Number one.

From now on, I'm boss around here.

You are? And why?

Ghost, I warn you. Shut up!

Pop.

I'm going to go through with my end of the bargain on one condition.

The pretty girl here doesn't see the Lieutenant anymore.

Are you out of your mind? I'm talking to you, Pop.

Pop, do we have to take this?

Listen Ghost, a man can only stomach so much.

You coward.

Alright, Ghost.

You asked for it.

Now, I'm going to tell you.

And I'm going to tell you plenty. I said shut up.

Say it fast.

Pop. Never mind, Julie.

I know what I'm doing.

Eight long years .. I've ate humble pie.

But no more, Ghost.

Because I know a thing or two about you.

I've enough on you to put you away for years in that rotten party of yours.

More than that, I've got enough to burn you.

You through? No.

You stay away from Julie.

And don't give her no orders. Don't touch that toy.

I came prepared for this, Pop. Chick, get me that file.

Well.

I guess this is the pay-off.

You're grounded, Martin.

Big Charlie wants to see you.

Now isn't that nice.

I'm always glad to see Big Charlie.

Have him come up to my place.

Big Charlie picks his own places.

Why don't you relax, boys?

Just kind of take it easy.

And pay my compliments to Big Charlie.

Tell him I'm a little busy right now.

We're not looking for any trouble.

Chick. Get them out of here.

You help him.

I'm going to call the Sheriff. No you don't.

Look, two men have been killed and another wounded.

I'm calling the Sheriff. Pop!

She's calling the law.

It ain't good for you.

This isn't right.

Do you know what you're doing? I think he does.

Don't listen to him. You're acting like a guilty man.

A murderer. He is.

He's not!

You shot him in self-defense. You have nothing to hide.

Julie, I'm a two-time loser.

A two-time loser?

Stop saying that, Pop.

Go ahead, Ghost. Go on and show her.

He was going to do it when the boys dropped in.

Now I don't care. Go on, show her.

Pretty, huh?

But Pop couldn't help himself, Julie.

The Ghost has been blackmailing him. I know.

Shut up. Get inside.

Well, looks like there's funerals all around doesn't it, pretty girl?

What do you mean? Now, now. Relax.

I think it would be a good idea for you to bury that soldier boyfriend.

I'm the head man now.

Pop! Don't go!

What do you want him to do, hang?

I think we're beginning to see eye to eye.

And I don't think you want to mess up the Lieutenants life. Is that right?

Listen.

It's not so bad.

I'm offering you a lot.

Security .. luxury.

Gowns that fit like .. like a glove.

And everything I've got .. and that's everything you can see and lots more.

Please. Now, listen to me.

Just listen to me a minute.

I'm not going to live long.

Someday soon.

I'm going to blow up. In the head or in the chest.

And everything will be yours.

This world was only made for a few.

Why don't you forget your soldier boyfriend, huh?

No!

I tell you.

When I killed George eight years ago.

I was crazed with pain. I was.

Why, they beat me near to a pulp before I shot them.

And you know that, Jake. That's history. Come on.

Alright.

But I ain't a killer like you are, Jake.

Why, it makes me sick even to see somebody die.

If you're going to blow your top .. Alright. I'll keep shut up.

But we're both in this together.

Well, if you want to come out.

Alright, I'll keep just digging.


Alright, Pop?

Well, hello. Behaving yourself?

Sure I am, Tom. Thought I might like a cold drink.

Getting hotter every day.

Well, we'll be seeing you, folks.

Take care of yourselves.

They don't know anything. Let's hope.

Julie, you don't think I done wrong, do you?

Of course not.

You couldn't help yourself. I saw it all, Pop.

Julie, you don't know how good it makes me feel to hear you say that.

Because, I ain't no killer. I know it.

They couldn't do anything to you.

Couldn't they, though? I'm a two-time loser, Julie.

They'd never believe me.

Oh Pop, what are you going to do?

Listen to me, baby. The boy is right for you.

It mustn't be.

It can't be. Of course it can.

What a man don't know, don't hurt him.

You just up and leave here. No-one will ever know what happened here last night.

Me, I'm button-lipped.

You do that like a charm. What can possibly happen?

You are Pop's daughter, aren't you?

Yes.

My name is Kohler.

Big Charlie sent me up here to do a little surveying.

Surveying?

What does Big Charlie want with us?

You know our boys when you see them, don't you?

Well, I know some of them.

Were Shorty and Steve here last night?

Not that I recall.

Do you remember anything, Julie?

No.

And nothing happened last night?

Well.

The Ghost was here.

Yup.

And nothing happened?

Well, nothing that you'd be interested in.

Oh, I see.

He was up here doing a little courting, huh?

Why, yes .. as a matter of fact.

If you must now, Mr Martin asked me to marry him last night.

Well, if I was you little girl, I would do a lot of considering.

I don't know how healthy Mr Martin is.

Pop, we'll take your word for it that nothing happened here last night.

But I hope you ain't kidding.

Pop.

Is it always going to be like this?

Oh, Daddy.

Hello, Julie.

Hello, Bob.

I didn't expect you so early.

Come on, put on your bonnet and smile.

You know, we're getting married.

Now? Yes, now.

Oh, I know what you're thinking. It's been kinda sudden. Like a big rush.

Bob.

Now you're going to listen to me. Sit down, I've got a lot to tell you.

Now listen to me, Bob. Darling, we're leaving.

I can't tell you, even you, exactly when or where we're bound.

That's military information.

But you must believe me.

I'm hardly an impetuous guy.

If I'm in such a big rush, there's a good reason.

I'm sure there is.

Honey, these aren't days to dally. Life is flowing towards us.

We've got to seize it now or maybe lose it forever.

Who knows if we live tomorrow?

Yes .. that's just it.

Who knows if we live tomorrow.

No, Bob.

It can't be.

What can't be?

You .. me .. us!

Julie, we are meant to be.

Oh, now you're kidding.

No, Bob.

But what are we waiting for?

I'm not going to marry you.

But Julie, last night.

Last night was a long time ago.

A long time ago?

Longer than I can remember.

Bob.

I do not love you.

I don't believe you, Julie.

Do you think it's fair to marry me tonight, and leave me tomorrow?

Perhaps never to come back?

You don't mean that, Julie.

I'll always be with you.

Don't you see, don't you know?

Thousands of us, millions maybe, will have to go out and fight. But why?

So that life can go on. It must go on, Julie.

I know.

Of course you know.

No Bob, please.

Don't ask me why.

Julie, you love me .. don't you?

Maybe.

In a funny way.

Is there someone else?

Yes.

Then why don't you tell me about him?

Bob, it doesn't matter.

It's not really important.

Go on.

Well, he can give me security and everything I want. I'll be a rich widow.

Well, maybe.

It's The Ghost, isn't it? Yes!

Well.

I feel like I fell off a dream.

I'll always love you.

Goodbye, Julie.


What's wrong, Julie girl?

Where's Bob?

I sent him away.

What do I want with him?

I guess I sure have messed your life up good, haven't I, Julie.

[ Door knocks ]

Come in.

Announcement.

His Nibs.

Hello army, what's on your mind?

I had a feeling last night that we'd have a few things to settle.

You come alone? Yes.

Have a drink, have a cigar. No thanks.

You're a pretty sociable guy. Why don't you relax once in a while?

I want to see you alone. I never see anybody alone.

Is it about Julie? That's right.

She brush you off?

How long have you known Julie?

Don't ask me questions.

You came up here with something on your mind. Now get it off fast.

Don't order me. I'm going to do this my way.

Your way?

You don't know who I am, do you? Shut up and I'll tell you.

They tried to kill me twice. Left me for dead.

Everybody calls me the living ghost.

When I talk .. everybody listens.

Everybody.

You know, I had an idea last night.

That you had some mighty twisted ideas concerning your own importance.

Now I know it.

But why Julie should pretend not to see through it .. I don't understand.

She sees what you don't see, soldier.

A head man .. a future. Not a hero with tin medals.

A future with you? Yes .. yes.

Every outfit needs a leader.

I'm that leader. I lead people.

And when they argue I beat them down.

So that's it .. little Napoleon.

Brother, your time has come.

From you? No. Not from me.

From millions of people all over the world.

Thanks for the compliment.

You know, you're a case.

It must be your kind that makes a Hitler.

Berchtesgaden must be something like this.

That's where Hitler chews rugs. Hitler?

Why, that cheap punk.

He's an amateur. This is America. I'm right in the middle of it, see?

And let me tell you something.

Everything I've got I got myself.

When I started out nobody gave me a lift.

Nobody said: "Here Al, help yourself to a chunk of this beautiful life".

You think I'm crazy, don't you? No.

I know you're crazy.

How much longer do you think people are going to put up with you and your kind?

How much longer you think little people will stand being tricked and mauled?

Can you see the handwriting on the wall? What are you talking about?

So, you never read the bible.

So you wouldn't know what I'm talking about.

But you are the last of your kind.

The gangster's time has come. Big and little.

You're all mad dogs.

You poisoned a few, yes. But remember.

Mad dogs die of their own venom.

A mad dog, huh?

Well, maybe.

You don't scare me. There's too many of us.

What of it? All over the world.

You'll see.

Little men .. honest men.

Big with the dignity of toil and strong with the courage of decency.

And these men will have their day.

Do you know when?

When they learn that you're made of noise .. and bluff.

So you thought you'd come up here to tell me off, huh?

That's right.

Just to tell you off.

Goodnight.

All officers and men are ordered back to camp at once, sir.

Aye-aye.

[ Buzzer ]

[ Buzzer ]

Don't let him get away.

Did you hear what he said? Noise and bluff!

I'll make that shaved-tail eat those words.

You bring him back here in pieces.

Hello, pretty girl.

Here's what happened.

Your soldier boy was up here about five minutes ago.

Yes. But I don't feel we'll have any more trouble with him.

Says you!

Pop, I don't know what's happened.

Bob went to The Dunes.

He must be in great trouble.

What, with them big gorillas? Why, he ain't got a chance.

I'm going.

Hello .. yes, Bob?

No, she isn't here. Really, she isn't.

Okay, I'll be right over.

Big Charlie says no gunplay.

You boys behave yourselves and everything will be alright.

If anyone tried to get funny, they'll get plugged.

Now, do I make myself clear?

We got a special treatment for The Ghost here.

Big Charlie has got a great sense of humor.

He figures that bullets would be wasted on you.

But to beat your brains out.

Get them out of here.

Vacate the place!

So you bumped off Shorty and Steve, eh?

Well now I'm going to finish you. I'm going to do just like Big Charlie said.

Beat your brains out.


I knew you'd find me. You said you'd help me. Help me.

They think I'm dead. Me, dead?

Where's Bob? He's at the camp.

He's licked and so is Big Charlie.

I'm not ready to die. Not yet. I've got work to do.

You and me, we can take on the whole world.


Pack your things.

Martin, let me handle it.

Yes.

You handle it.

Only you, pretty girl.

Nobody else.

You .. and me.

Yes.

Get your bags packed.

Ghost, you can't do this.

Can't do what?

Who are you?

He's my father, Martin.

Pop Bronson.

Pop Bronson.

You squealed last night, didn't you?

You told Kohler everything, didn't you? No, honest I didn't. - Shut up!

I don't like squealers.

Martin, listen to me.

He hasn't said a word. Honest he hasn't.

He's my father, Martin.

Mine.

That means something to you.

Doesn't it?

Uhuh.

Uhuh.

Yes.

Yes.

Come here.

Come here, Pop.

I'm not going to leave you here alone with this madman.

I'm not mad.

No.

No, my madness is gone.

Come here.

Yes .. yes.

Let's all sit down and be friends, huh?

Yes.

Sure.

Let's.

Let's sit down and be friends, huh.

Yes, Pop .. shake hands with me.

Come on, Pop. Don't be afraid.

I'm your friend.

Martin.

Be quiet, pretty girl.

I never shoot.

I never shoot.

[ 2 gunshots! ]

You see what I've done?

Scream.

Why don't you scream?

You're a woman. Go on!

Yes .. that's ..

That's what I want to see.

That's what I want to see.

[ Gunshot! ]

Nobody kills me.

I'm The Ghost! Nobody kills me!

Get me the Sheriff.

Tell him I'm holding a madman.

My father has been killed! Don't.

No.

Don't.

Don't let them get me. Please.

Please don't.

Look at you.

Standing there, crazy and shaking.

You're not human.

Don't. I ..

They'll get you. They'll get you and finish you once and for all.

And they'll do it now. They'll it tonight!

So, it's alright.

I .. I never killed anybody before.

This is the first time.

I always took the safe way. I had stooges. I let them burn.

This time you'll burn.

Think of all the people you have had beaten and killed.

Think of them screaming and begging for mercy.

No.

No.

No, please.

They're all over me now.

Get them away from me! Oh no, please don't.


This is what the end is.

For you and your kind.

The failed leader.


Julie!

Julie!


What happened, Miss Bronson? The Sheriff sent us.

The Ghost killed my father .. then ..

They're in there.

We're very sorry, Miss Bronson.

We'll take care of everything.

The Sheriff got Kohler and his men.

I have a message for you.

What?

I saw Bob. I fixed things up.

You did?

Yes. His regiment has been moved.

You are to be in San Francisco in 3 days.

You can get married there before he leaves.

San Francisco?

Look honey, you've got to go. He's right for you.


I'll be there.
