FADE IN:

 

Extreme close-up, a photo album is slowly opened to its first page.

And we slowly tilt up on the 50s style cutie at a dance in black and white photo. (Tilt up from bottom of dress)

 

LYRICS

Come on Little Angel

 

Pan over to next black and white photo. (All photos are black-and-white)

The Belmonts perform on stage.

 

LYRICS

 Won’t you dance with me

Won’t you dance with me

 

Tilt down to…

Carlo along with mic at edge of stage.

 

LYRICS

Well at last I knew it was plain to see

 

Carlo in another solo freeze-frame.

 

LYRICS

We did the mashed potato

and it sure was fun

 

And tilt down to…

The group back together in one photo.

 

LYRICS

Now everybody wants to see

the way it’s been done now

 

Turn of the page…

 

LYRICS

Come on Little Angel

hear the band playing loud

 

First photo on next page, close-up on cutie and we fall back to reveal crowd around her.

 

LYRICS

Hey take a look around

you’ll see them forming a crowd

 

Pan to…

Carlo on the dance floor reaching out for her hand.

 

LYRICS

That’s it little angel

now that you’re in the groove

 

Tilt…

Hand in hand the two have started to move.

 

LYRICS

You hear them all a clapping

as we both start to move

 

Pan to following page…

An over a group of photos of them in motion.

 

LYRICS

Now come on

Come on Little Angel

come on

Come on Little Angel

come on

Come on Little Angel

come on come on

 

Page turn…

 

LYRICS

Come on Little Angel

now the lights are down low

 

First photo, wide shot.

 

LYRICS

It’s really getting late

and we have to go

 

Cutie places a sweet innocent kiss on Carlo’s cheek.

 

LYRICS

Well thank you little angel

for that wonderful kiss

 

Tilt…

Carlo holds cutie’s hand up as she puts on some twist moves.

 

LYRICS

And now you’re gonna tell me

that you’re doing the twist

 

Next page…

Group of photos.

Extreme close-up, cutie’s foot.

Extreme close-up, cutie’s hips.

Wide, mid-motion and twist.

Wide, Carlo and the crowd cheer her on.

 

LYRICS

Around and around

and up and down (x4)

 

Page turn…

First photo, Carlo.

 

LYRICS

Yes little angel

it sure is fun

 

Next, cutie.

 

LYRICS

Every time we’re dancin’

she’s right on time

 

Tilt…

Cutie movin’ in one direction.

 

LYRICS

She moved to the left

Then the other.

 

LYRICS

She moved to the right

 

And in a third photo hands up in the air above her head.

 

LYRICS

She feels that beat

and she dances all the night

 

Page turn…

First photo, wide shot.

 

LYRICS

…come on Little Angel

now the lights are down low

 

Pan, extreme close-up of their hands in one another’s.

 

LYRICS

It’s really getting late

and now we have to go

 

Tilt…

Extreme close-up, cutie’s eyes lookin’ straight ahead.

 

LYRICS

Well thank you little angel

for that wonderful kiss

 

Pan from extreme close-up of Carlo’s hand on cutie’s lower back. We fall back to find that she’s again doin’ the twist.

 

LYRICS

And now you’re gonna tell me

that you’re doing the twist

 

Page turn…

From one photo to another we pan/tilt on a series of shots of Carlo and the cutie dancin’ among their peers and the Belmonts.

*NOTE: Sorry, couldn’t get the bold out of this next section*

Page turn…
For the next four pages multiple shots between Carlo and the Belmonts as they perform on stage and cutie in the crowd enjoying them from down on the floor.

 

LYRICS
Every time we’re dancin’
she’s a right on time
She feels that beat
and she dances all the night
Why don’t you come on Little Angel
now the lights are down low
it’s really getting late
and now we have to go
Well thank you little angel
for that wonderful kiss
and now you’re gonna tell me
that you’re doing the twist

 

We pan out of the photo album and find Carlo and cutie now mature in age, still enjoying each other as they do the twist. A little slower, but still dancin’.

 

LYRICS

Around and around

and up and down

 

Slow fall back until…
