Neville Sinclair is sitting on the bed in his mansion with Jenny.

“Neville, I’m scared-” says Jenny. Neville puts his arm around Jenny and presses her to his shoulder.

“Oh, there, there, there — ” says Neville, “Don’t be frightened.” He kisses her, theatrically. Neville holds Jenny’s head in his hands. “You know,” says Neville, “Tonight, when we danced – – I felt something move inside me. I felt it tear loose, and take flight.”

Jenny looks at him. “You said that to Greta Garbo,” says Jenny, “in Napoleon’s Mistress.”

“But you’d have been a fantastic Lady Catherine,” says Neville. “If you’d put yourself into my hands, I could teach you, mold you — into a leading lady. Clay, in the hands of the master sculptor–”

Jenny laughs. “Moonlight on Broadway ! Carole Lombard — the scene on the top of the Empire State Building.”

Neville smiles awkwardly. “Ehh-yes.” He lets go of Jenny. “Look, you can’t be comfortable in that gown.” He stands up from the bed and walks toward a closet. Neville opens the closet doors.
