The Fallen Idol
Philippe, 8 year old son of an ambassador in London, is left for a weekend in the care of the butler Baines and his stern housekeeper-wife. Baines, whom Philippe worships, is in love with Julie, a typist at the embassy. The little boy follows the lovers to a tea shop and overhears their decision to part, as the future can hold no happiness for them. Later, while spying on Julie, Mrs Baines accidently falls to her death from a window. Terrified, thinking that Baines has murdered his wife, the boy runs into the street in his pyjamas.
