Scene 3

Scene 3

  • Music pours out of a radio as a man pours himself a drink and picks out a suit jacket and tie for the evening.
  • He empties a can filled with cufflinks and begins to meticulously groom and dress himself for what will clearly be an expensive evening. He pulls wads of money from several different places in the room.
  • A small enameled pin with the familiar Nazi swastika is affixed to the man's lapel.
  • An elegant entrance, a doorman bribed, and an excellent table at the center of everything. Oskar Schindler sits with the confident air of a made man and surveys the room. No one knows who he is, but he has a lot of money and he intends to use it to get noticed.
  • He buys a round of drinks for the most important people in the room, including a high-ranking Nazi official there to impress a girl.
  • In no time at all, Oskar becomes the man to meet. We get a small glimpse into the hobbies of the Nazi elite: women, wine, food, and excesses of all sorts for the delights of the SS invaders.
  • Evidently, when they're not senselessly murdering the local population, they enjoy the finer things in life.
  • A very important Nazi official walks in and asks about the man who everyone's crowded around in song. The waiter proudly declares that "It's Oskar Schindler."
  • Oskar's crushing it. He's the new celeb of the party who won over everyone with his charm and his generous spending.
