NO WINNERS

INT. BALLROOM NIGHT 

down angle on Rollo continuing over

SHIRL, who collapsed in a limp, half conscious exhaustion on the floor. SAILOR huddles over her.

ROLLO:

...Three ... Four...

SAILOR:

Don´t! Give ´er a chance! She´l glet up. (trugging her) 

 

Close down shot on SHIRL, she lies still huddled like a wounded thing that has finally been run to ground. Her eyes are glazed and tick -lidded, as she stares up toward Sailor and Rollo. Her lips move - but no words form...no sound emerges.

(SAILOR and ROLLO speak together)

SAILOR:

...try, Shirl! ...Try!...

ROLLO:

...Eight ... Nine... 

New angle on scene, SHIRL try to cling feebly to SAILORS HANDS as ROLLO ´s extended finger SLASHES INTO FRAME.

ROLLO:

...TEN!!  

ANGLE WIDENS as the DOCTOR and one of nurses push throught and start helping SHIRL up.

ROCKY signal the BAND, wich segues into "TILL WE MEET AGAIN".

ROCKY:

Miss SHIRLEY CLAYTON, We´re gonna miss you, Shirl! Isn´t that right, folks?

SO LONG SAILOR

INT. BALLROOM NIGHT - ON ROCKY

weawe a reassuring hand to the audience..

ROCKY:

...Look like our ancient mariner may have taken a little spill. But nothing to worry about.

CLOSE ANGLE ON DOCTOR AND SAILOR

as the DOCTOR injects the hypo of adrenalin into SAILOR.

A beat... then SAILOR´ s body moves slightly.

ANGLE ON ROCKY

ROCKY:

...Get him out of here. The back way!!  

ANGLE WIDENS as the DOCTOR and one of nurses lifting the still inconscious and now blanket-covered Sailor on a stretcher and starting to move off with him through the parting onlookers. 

Rocky turns back to the mike. He smiles:

ROCKY:

...Message from the Doctor: just a little touch of heat prostration. Nothing serious.

...So long, Sailor, but we know, you´ll be back to see us...

The BAND starts playing "TILL WE MEET AGAIN".
