Storyline

Millicent Hopkins, while touring with a dancing troupe in 1892, meets Clive Loring who is campaigning in the English Midlands for Parliament. They fall in love and Millie remains behind at the home of her father while her friend, Rose Bridges and the rest of the company go to London. Lord Belmont, Clive's older brother, tells Millie that a marriage below Clive's station will jeopardize his future happiness. She resolves to drop out of his life and, without telling him, rejoins the troupe at the Empire Theatre. Mille and Rose, leaving the theatre without removing their makeup, are stopped and questioned by a bobby. They flee and Millie takes refuge in the rooms of a sympathetic stranger, Jose Martinez, a Spanish concert pianist, where she remains most of the night. The next morning, a Scotland Yard Inspector arrives and arrests Martinez. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Lord Montglyn: It is indeed. You know I don't care very much for respectable society. I prefer the disreputable type of people. I'm more impressive then.
Lord Belmont: I hope this won't be too much of a hardship for you.
Lord Montglyn: Oh, I'd have been indisposed but I couldn't resist the temptation of inspecting Clive's bride.
Lord Belmont: She's well worth the trouble.
Lord Montglyn: Oh, a beauty eh? Well there's no reason why a man should marry an attractive woman. They seldom do. I can't think of many ...
