HAPPY END


SYNOPSIS
Val is a penniless young French would-be actress who lives on the streets of Greenwich Village. She sleeps rough, outside a townhouse owned by Jack. A one-time Oscar-winning scriptwriter, Jack's muse - like his wife Beatrix - has deserted him. Impotent, blocked, Jack too is adrift. After a confrontation with Jack, Val faints from exhaustion, and he takes her in. When she wakes, they trade insults. As she storms out, it hits Jack: he's in love. Inspired, he starts writing again, a new script based on this enchanting French vagabond.
