am most pleased t intrduce on ther
long-awaited return engagement t
Whiteys Blooze Bar, direct from the

Blind Brother Dex and The Seeing-Eye
COVER SHOT: As Whitey leaves the stage, only one drunken
Regular APPLAUDS-one beat per second. The rest of the

SHOT CONTINUES: BLIND BROTHER DEX AND THE SEEING-EYE DOGS
ENTER. First on the stage is harmonica player ASTIGMATIC
HARPO MARX, wearing thick-lensed glasses. Next is BLIND
BROTHER DEX, who wears dark glasses, and carries a white-
tipped cane and a guitar. He is followed by the bassist and
drummer, NEAR-SIGHTED NATE and TUNNEL-VISION VINCE, who also
wear thick-lensed specs. Everyone blunders to his place:
Blind B.D. to a stool center-stage, harmonica player to one

hand connects with the peghead of the bass. He speaks to the
BLIND BROTHER DEX
Hey, were sure glad t be back here
FOUR-SHOT: At first the myopic Dogs are oblivious to Blind
B.D.s disorientation. But then Harpo finally sees that Blind
B.D. is off-target. Harpo turns Blind B.D. so hes facing
BLIND BROTHER DEX (CONT'D)
