Paul Is Dead Part 4

CUT TO:

16. INT. ISLINGTON AUDITORIUM, TORONTO – NIGHT.
The grand finale and everyone is screaming. It’s Shea Stadium all over again.

PAUL #1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & WILLIAM CAMPBELL
"...Yeah, yeah, yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"

CUT TO:

17. EXT. ISLINGTON STREET, LONDON – NIGHT.
The Aston Martin hurtles totally out of control at high speed into a light pole which snaps in half, crushing the car completely. RADIO plays the last long held guitar chord of "She Loves You."

CUT TO:

18. INT. ISLINGTON AUDITORIUM, TORONTO – NIGHT.
The wall clock shows 12:00:00. JUNGLE JAY steps forward as the last long guitar chord fades away. It now can no longer be heard over the applauding and cheering crowd.

JUNGLE JAY
It’s your turn now, Beatlemaniacs! Is it going to be...
(Holds his hand over PAUL #1’s head)
Stanley Norstrand!
(Cheers and applause.)

CUT TO:

19. EXT. ISLINGTON STREET, LONDON – NIGHT.
Cheers and applause from Toronto continue in AUDIO over the accident site. Blood drips down from the crumpled car doors.

CUT TO:

20. INT. ISLINGTON AUDITORIUM, TORONTO – NIGHT.

JUNGLE JAY
(Holds his hand over PAUL #2’s head)
Salvator Morales!
(Cheers and applause.)

CUT TO:

21. EXT. ISLINGTON STREET, LONDON – NIGHT.
RITA’s lifeless and lacerated leg pokes up through the shattered passenger side window.

CUT TO:

22. INT. ISLINGTON AUDITORIUM, TORONTO – NIGHT.

JUNGLE JAY
(Holds his hand over PAUL #3’s head)
Rene Hebert!
(Cheers and applause.)

CUT TO:

23. EXT. ISLINGTON STREET, LONDON – NIGHT.
The bottle of Jack Daniels is emptying itself into the gutter.

CUT TO:

24. INT. ISLINGTON AUDITORIUM, TORONTO – NIGHT.

JUNGLE JAY
(Holds his hand over PAUL #4’s head)
Carmine Azzopardi!
(Cheers and applause.)

CUT TO:

25. EXT. ISLINGTON STREET, LONDON – NIGHT.
Slumped back and sticking out the back of what was the rear window are a set of shoulders without a head.

CUT TO:

26. INT. ISLINGTON AUDITORIUM, TORONTO – NIGHT.

JUNGLE JAY
(Holds his hand over PAUL #5’s head)
Ian O’Reilly!
(Cheers and applause.)

CUT TO:

27. EXT. ISLINGTON STREET, LONDON – NIGHT.
On the darkened sidewalk, next to a littered, grassy hillock, a lifeless head is slowly turning, coming to rest.

CUT TO:

28. INT. ISLINGTON AUDITORIUM, TORONTO – NIGHT.

JUNGLE JAY
(Holds his hand over WILLIAM CAMPBELL)
Or William Campbell!
(Cheers and applause, much louder and stronger than for the others.)

CUT TO:

29. EXT. ISLINGTON STREET, LONDON – NIGHT.
The severed head slowly rolls to a rest face up. ECU on PAUL’s face.

DISSOLVE TO:

30. INT. ISLINGTON AUDITORIUM, TORONTO – NIGHT.
ECU of WILLIAM CAMPBELL’s face, which is nowhere near as wide as PAUL’s, has a much thinner nose with smaller nostrils, has eyes much closer together and a scar on the lower left hand chin. Otherwise, they do share some superficial similarities, but not many. Pull back to stage.

JUNGLE JAY
You, the Beatle fans of Toronto have made your choice. It’s William Campbell!

The crowd goes insanely wild. MOD GIRL and MRS. SHEARS are jumping up and down shouting and clapping. WILLIAM CAMPBELL is confused and shyly picks up the trophy, but seems not to know how to hold it.
