Richard Collier
William Fawcett Robinson


Richard Collier: Arthur, you know in the Hall of History, there's a photograph, a young woman. There's no nameplate.
Arthur Biehl: Yes, that's Elise McKenna. She was a famous actress in her day. Starred in a play in the hotel theater.
Richard Collier: I-I'm sorry. Did you say there was a theater here?
Arthur Biehl: Yes. Down by the lake.
Richard Collier: Really? When was this play done?
Arthur Biehl: That was in 1912.


Richard Collier: This is not for a play, Miss Roberts. This is something very personal. [shows her the pocket watch]
Laura Roberts: Where did you get that?
Richard Collier: Well, she gave it to me, ma'am. At the opening night of a play that I wrote at Millfield College about eight years ago.
Laura Roberts: That watch was very precious to her. She never, never left it out of her possession. It disappeared the night she died.
Richard Collier: She died that night?

Laura Roberts: [about Elise] When I knew her, she was kind and thoughtful. But she was just too much within herself. She seemed empty somehow.
Richard Collier: She wasn't always that way, was she?
Laura Roberts: Oh, no, not at all. People who knew her when she was young said that she was quick and bright and full of fun. Strong, willful, not at all the way she was later.
Richard Collier: What made her change?
Laura Roberts: I don't know. But the change seemed to have taken place about 1912, after she performed in a play at the Grand Hotel.
