Paul Is Dead Part 7
WILLIAM CAMPBELL covers his mouth as if to hold back either a laugh or a scream.
What does someone like Brian Epstein want with me?
William, you wouldn’t believe me if I told you.
37. EXT. HEATHROW AIRPORT RUNWAY - DAY.
Establishing shot from Mid Sixties. BOAC Boeing 707 lands in the gray drizzle.
38. INT. BOAC 707 - DAY.
WILLIAM CAMPBELL, white as a sheet, trembling and still holding his vomit bag starts to get up from his first class seat as the rest of the passengers begin to disembark. A stewardess gestures to him and approaches.
Mr. Campbell. Please wait here. You will be disembarking separately.
Someone is coming to get you sir. Please stay in your seat.
The first class cabin empties and WILLIAM CAMPBELL looks around nervously. A uniformed CHAUFFEUR enters and approaches WILLIAM CAMPBELL.
Mr. Campbell, I’m here to take you into the city.
Er... okay. But why are you getting me here? Couldn’t you have picked me up at baggage claim?
Your bags will be attended to. Please come with me.
WILLIAM CAMPBELL is led by the CHAUFFEUR to the back of the now empty jet, where they disembark through the rear door.
39. EXT. HEATHROW AIRPORT TARMAC - DAY
WILLIAM CAMPBELL and the CHAUFFEUR walk down the boarding stairs directly onto the tarmac. A Rolls Royce Silver Shadow awaits at the foot of the stairs. WILLIAM CAMPBELL whistles in amazement.
40. EXT. RITZ HOTEL, ST. JAMES - DAY
The Rolls Royce pulls out of the St. James traffic to the front of the luxurious Ritz Hotel. The doorman opens the rear door and WILLIAM CAMPBELL steps out. He looks around and whistles again.
41. INT. BRIAN’S OFFICE - DAY
BRIAN snaps out of his chair and rounds his desk to shake WILLIAM CAMPBELL’s hand as soon as he opens the office door.
William! How are you? I’ve been very excited about meeting you!
Er... I’m fine, Mr. Epstein...
Brian! Please call me Brian! Did you sleep well?
Oh... yeah... Like a log. That is some hotel!
The Ritz is my favorite London hotel. I’m very happy you approve.
I’d never even been to the Royal York, let alone the Ritz!
Have a seat, William. Make yourself at home. Would you like a drink?
Just Coca Cola. If you have any...
(clicks the intercom)
Sally, bring in... er... two Cokes. Cold! So, William Campbell! Heard nothing but good things about you from my good friend Allan!
Mr. Waters is a really great fellow. He has been very kind and considerate of me.
He’s doing a great job out there in Montreal...
Yes, of course. Always get those two mixed up!
Well, I bet you’re wondering what this is all about...
