Storyboard Text

  • "Tomorrow would be Christmas Day, and she had only $1.87 with which to by Jim a present."
  • Before
  • "If Jim doesn't kill me," said to herself, "before he takes a second look at me, he'll say I look like a Coney Island chorus girl. But what could I do! What could I do with a dollar and eighty-seven-cents?"
  • After
  • Oh, and the next two hours tripped by on rosy wings. Forget the hashed metaphor. She was ransacking the stores for Jim's present.
  • Jewelry Store
  • "Jim had not yet seen his beutiful present. She held it out to him eagerly upon her open palm."
  • "Don't look at me that way. I had my hair cut off and sold because I couldn't have lived through Christmas without giving you a present."
  • "I don't think there's anything in the way of a haircut or a shave or shampoo that could make me like my girl any less."
  • "And here I have lamely related to you the uneventful chronicle of two foolish children in a flat who most unwisly sacrificed for eachother the greates treasures of their house." THEY ARE THE MAGI.
