Storyboard Text

  • Six minutes to six, said the clock over the information booth in New York's Grand Central Station. The tall young Army officer lifted his sunburned face and narrowed his eyes to note the exact time. His heart was pounding with a beat that choked him. In six minutes he would see the woman who had filled such a special place in his life for the past 18 months, the woman he had never seen yet whose words had made him fall.

  • A girl passed closer to him, and Lt. Blandford started. She was wearing a flower, but it was not the little red rose they had agreed upon. Besides, this girl was only about 18, and Hollis Meynell had told him she was 30.
  • New York's grand central station
  • "What of it?" he had answered, "I'm 32." He was 29.

  • For thirteen months she had faithfully replied. When his letters did not arrive, she wrote anyway, and now he believed he loved her, and she loved him. But she had refused all his pleas to send him her photograph. Explaining that she did not wanted their love to be based on appearances. Then a young woman was coming toward him. Her figure was long and slim; her blond hair lay back in curls from her delicate ears. Her eyes were blue as flowers, her lips and chin had a gentle firmness. In her pale green suit, she was like springtime come alive.

  • "Going my way, soldier?" she murmured.

  • Then he saw Hollis Meynell. A woman well past 40, her graying hair tucked under a worn hat. She was plump. Her thick-ankled feet were thrust into low-heeled shoes and wore a red rose on her crumpled coat. The girl in the green suit walked away.

  • His fingers gripped the small worn, blue leather copy of Of Human Bondage, which was to identify him to her. He couldn't deny the disappointment he felt but he thought that perhaps a friendship could take place instead.

  • He squared his broad shoulders, saluted and held the book out toward the woman, although even while he spoke he felt shocked by the bitterness of his disappointment.
  • "I'm Lieutenant John Blandford, and you must be Miss Meynell. I'm glad you could meet me. May...may I take you to dinner?"

  • "I don't know what this is all about, son," she answered. "That young lady in the green suit begged me to wear this rose on my coat."
  • Elevator
  • "She said if you asked me out, then to tell you to meet her in the restaurant across the street. This was a test"
