Alpha Omega M.D. – Episode #217
…“No, I’m afraid I must return to the real world,” tells Judith Eastman…
“Bravo! What a scene!” Mary cannot contain herself. “Oh, I wish there were a way to record that scene with every little sound, all that raw emotion.”
The movie’s director is almost in tears, of the joyful variety. He has witnessed Judith’s steady improvement, the way she has started to use body language and that face; able to express a full compliment of moods.
Her final scene even impresses the not easily impressible Harry Langdon. His last words to her, “I will work with you any time”, are different from his first, “I will not work with an untrained, unknown East Coast frump.” He lied about the frump part, eating those words faster than he can chew.
“Thank you all. I really enjoyed the experience and I am going to miss you. My magazine work will surely now seem boring.”
“You are going to stay until we are done shooting aren’t you?” Mary half asks half urges.
“No, I’m afraid I must return to the real world. I am surprised I was able to concentrate with my husband on the other side of the world.”
“My people will arrange for your return train, and I’ll instruct payroll to cut you a check for your performance.” Businesswoman Pickford takes control. “And please promise me that if I have a role tailor-made for you, that you will answer my call.”
“I cannot promise you absolutely, but I will do almost anything for a friend.”
The pair embraces warmly, but briefly. “Scene 84 to set 5 please, places everyone,” barks the director.
“That’s me, Judith. Have a safe trip and give your husband my best. He is a lucky man.”
