Scene in the store

One thing I don't understand...when Maurice takes Jessie shopping for the dress then gets up to the counter and doesn't have any money to pay for it. What was he thinking??

Signatures annoy me.


We can only assume that he just wanted to see venus try on dresses.
Also possibly that he was so caught up into her that he really did forget about not having the money.

He of course makes up for it by taking that acting role for cash and then buying her earrings.

Excellent movie.


My other thought is that there was a time when well-known people could truly just "sign" for things...and then if the purchase was true, the business manager would take care of details like actual money...of course that's how a lot of people went broke (or got rich.)
