|There are many ways to relax. A good book, a dirty movie, or a rope around someone’s neck.|
The Lynching "We're going to get lynched, aren't we?" he whispered. Nora looked at him her eyes wide, “Well what did you expect after you cleaned out the saloon safe and stole the owner's horses. Did you think he would just laugh it off and and, and?” “Cut damn it cut! Take five, people. Let's talk, Nora. Somebody get Nora, some coke.” Nora's eyes glistened with excitement when she heard coke. “Who am I, Nora?” “You're Sam” “Yes, I know that. I should have asked you just what do you think my job is?” “Is this some kind of test Sam? I'm not good at test I get dizzy and weak then fall over when I don't know the answers. Please don't make me weak Sam.” “Its OK, Nora but I just hate to see a talent like yours get off on the wrong foot so I called cut. Let me explain. The story is you get crazy head over heels in love with this young guy who comes into the saloon where you just started working to get money for your sick dog's operation. So new guy, he gets the idea to steal money from the safe while you are upstairs relaxing Blackie, the saloon's owner. Get it?” “Who is Blackie, Sam?” “Blackie is not here because we are not ready to shoot his scene just now. We had to rent the horses and saddles for this weekend to get the best deal. Now do you want to rehearse the part where you say did you think he would just laugh it off and let us go after getting so relaxed with me?” “No Sam, I can do it for the camera now. I just got a little confused that's all. Did you say I could have some coke?” “Maybe after this scene is in the can, OK? All right everyone quite on the set OK action. Cut, damn it cut. Could somebody get a shovel and clean up under that horse. Just relax Nora; you didn't get any on you. Ted practice looking scared about being lynched. Ok quite on the set and action.” “We're going to get lynched, aren't we?" Ted whispered. Nora looked at him her eyes wide, “Well what did you expect after you cleaned out the saloon safe and stole the owner's horses. Did you think he would just laugh it off and let us go after getting so relaxed with me?” “Well maybe you should go back, relax him some more and take care of your sick dog. You could tell him I drown in that river we crossed and then when he wants to know about his money, say you could not find my body or the saddlebags with the money. You could act real happy you got away because you were sure I was going to kill you and orphan your dog.” “But, I love you and I will never see you again and and ....” “Ok cut. Take five, people. Who am I, Nora?” “I know that one Nora says giggling and doing small child like hops across the set. You are Sam and you want me to guess what your job is just like the old guys do on TV. My guess is you are the person who wants me to get off uh on the other foot. “Sam there is a phone call holding for you in the office. “Yes, dear, I should be home on time I just have to film one more relaxing scene with Nona and then savor the lynching of my budding female star and her male costar companion.” Tweet
