 The story of a bashfull boy who lived in a world of ideas and ideals.



01:06

 He was so afraid of girls that he made a secret study of them, and the more he studied them the more he feared them.


01:17

 He lived in Little Bend, one of those towns where only three things happen every day——morning, noon, and night.


01:29

 He was an apprentice in the tailor shop of his uncle, Jerry Meadows—as ye rip so shall they sew.

"Say, Uncle Jerry, are you an' Harold goin' to the dance tonight?"


02:30

"Naw! Harold's too 'fraid of girls—he'd stutter so much you couldn't hear the music."

"You promised my husband's Sunday pants for Saturday night."


03:58

"I'd like you to meet my city cousin from Grand City—she was the first person there who could pronounce Mah Jongg."

"Oh, Harold, could I have a cute little needle and thread to sew a tiny little hole in my stocking?"


05:53

"I want you to sew the tiny little hole for me."

Sunday

Long weeks came and went—you couln't stop them.
Short dreams came—and—well, who wants to stop them?


32:43

"Why have you insisted on driving home through Little Bend the past few weeks?"


32:58

"They say the seventh time is lucky; I'm going to try proposing again."


33:24

"I'll go to the nearest town and get a tow car—you wait here."


37:24

"I'd love to hear some more about your book."


37:36

"I'm going to see the publisher about it next Tuesday. You see, I have an idea for a new chapter——"


37:51

"——somehow—since my trip to the city, I seem to feel differently about women. They seem more wonderful—more glorious——"


40:34

"Ronald! I knew you'd find me. Is it all right with your folks to take me home now?"


40:44

"Why—er—not yet; things are not arranged—quite. I have something else to attend to right now."


41:18

"——and when my book is a success I'll be rich too—and I'll have something I want to ask you."


42:07

"What do you think? My nephew has a girl at last!"


42:20

"Don't disturb him—he may never get that way again!"


42:49

"Mr. Meadows, allow me to present my friend, Mr. DeVore."


43:19

"I won't forget next Tuesday—at the publishers."

"This is the young man who saved my dog on the train."

 His dream of wealth shattered—a tailor's apprentice still—


53:08

"Oh, I'm so anxious to know how they liked your new chapter."


53:19

"I knew they would—that wonderful day out in the country."


53:30

 The realization that it would be unfair to allow her to care any longer.


53:43

"We—we acted kind of silly that day, didn't we?"


54:04

"Why—why, you didn't believe all I said, did you?"


54:21

"I'm afraid I did."

"I'll do it! I'll publish it as 'The Boob's Diary'. It may be a sensation."


56:47

"Send him a check for $3,000 advance royalty—instead of a rejection slip."


57:04

"What do you think has happened? Mary just came in and said she would marry me!"


57:23

"You've been practically engaged so long, I'll set the wedding for Thursday, the 19th."


57:33

"I'm sure Mary must be very happy."


57:52

Thursday, the 19th.

A wedding day in the city—but just Thursday in Little Bend.
