His Girl Friday Scene 5

Scene 5

Scene 5

  • Hildy goes to the jail in the criminal court, bribes the guard, and talks to Earl Williams.
  • Earl didn't want to plead insanity; Hildy asks him about how he used to listen to speeches in the park.
  • He says he heard a speaker talking about "production for use."
  • She convinces him that that's why he shot the policeman (it doesn't make much sense, but since she wants him to look like he's insane, that's all the better).
  • Hildy also asks him about Molly Malloy, a friend of Earl's who sent him flowers.
  • And Hildy leaves.
