CHARLIE TAKES ACTION - PAGE 7

  • EXT. NEWS STAND - DAY (1938)
  • Charlie hands the Action Comics #1 to the News Vendor while he digs for some cash in his pockets.
  • CHARLIE
  • I’ll take it.
  • News Vendor looks at the cover.
  • NEWS VENDOR
  • Ten cent, Mac.
  • Charlie takes a dollar bill out of his pocket. Relieved he had anything at all.
  • CHARLIE
  • Keep the change.
  • News Vendor takes the dollar.
  • NEWS VENDOR
  • No problem, Rockefeller.
  • Looks at it.
  • NEWS VENDOR
  • Yeah. Nice try, pal. Now stop wasting my time and beat it.
  • CHARLIE
  • What?
  • NEWS VENDOR
  • I seen some people stoop to some stuff during the Depression, but this...this is the worst bogus bill I ever seen. Look at this. The big “one” is the wrong color. What’s this “In God We Trust” stuff on the back? And, Geez, it says twenty ought two on it. That’s just stupid. You get shell-shocked in the Big One or something?
  • Crumples up the bill and tosses it in the gutter.
