Storyboard Text

  • Oliver Bacon is wealthy
  • Mr. Bacon is popular man
  • Oliver Bacon was once poor
  • Oliver Bacon lived at the top of a house overlooking Green Park.
  • Oliver Bacon has made a promise
  • He would rip his letters open with his long pointed nails and would extract thick white cards of invitation upon which the engraving stood up roughly from duchesses, countesses, viscountesses and Honorable Ladies.
  • Mr. Bacon's stride
  • He had once thought that the height of his ambition was selling stolen dogs to fashionable women in Whitechapel.
  • The Jewellers
  • He stood beneath the picture of an old lady on the mantelpiece and raised his hands. "So, so . . . I have kept my word, I have won my bet." That was so; he was the richest jeweller in England.
  • He swayed slightly as he walked, as the camel at the zoo sways from side to side when it walks along the asphalt paths laden with grocers and their wives eating from paper bags and throwing little bits of silver paper crumpled up on to the path.
  • As usual, he strode through the shop without speaking. There were two men behind the counter. It was only with one finger of the amber-colored glove, waggling, that he acknowledged their presence.
