Jenny, embarrassed, quietly raises her hand to the director as she crosses the sound stage floor over to where Cliff is standing.

Victor, trying to cope with the idea they’re about to do Take 29, whispers, “Cut.” A bell rings.  Jenny leads Cliff off the set.

Meanwhile, several stagehands help Neville up from under the fallen flat. “Are you okay, Mister Sinclair?” asks one of the stagehands.

“It’s alright,” says Sinclair. “I’m fine.” He stands up. “Well, never let it be said that Neville Sinclair failed to bring down the house!” The cast and crew laugh.

John, the assistant director, kneels by someone sprawled on the floor. “Someone call a nurse – – Charlie’s been stabbed!” says the assistant director. The cast and crew rushes closer to the prone Charlie.

“Charlie!” shouts Neville. The actor on the floor was the same actor engaged in the sword fight with Sinclair a moment earlier. Sinclair kneels. “Charlie – – oh my God, forgive me, Charlie. I – I had no idea.”

“Did you think,” stammers Charlie, “I was.. s-s-stealing the scene?”

“Don’t talk,” smiles Neville. “Don’t even move. ” He turns to the assistant director. “John,  uh, get my car and driver. Get him to the Queen of Angels.” The script supervisor steps forward. “Gladys,” he says to her, ” You ride with him. I’ll have my personal physician meet you there.” Gladys says, “Yes,” and hurries away.

“Victor,” says Sinclair to the director, “Come here.” Charlie is carried away on a stretcher.

“This is supposed to be a closed set,” says Sinclair to Victor, “No visitors! I want that — that ‘Jenny’ banned from the lot!” Victor nods and then smiles with exasperation.

Meanwhile, Cliff is following Jenny through one of the corridors of the sound stage.

“Jenny, Jenny – – I said I’m sorry,” says Cliff. “Look, I just want to patch things up!”

“You’re off to a great start, ” says Jenny, sarcastically.

“Look, Jenny,” begins Cliff. “Something – ”
