Part four
Willie practices with Frank and goes higher and higher. Part four begins with a 75 foot dive. Frank is proud and gives her a costume. Then he tells her she's in the show tonight - jumping from 110 feet. Frank gives her a pill and tells her to relax. Then he wakes her up - you're on in six minutes! (What? How is she going to put on her make-up?). When she gets ready to dive - Frank tells her that he loves her and wants to marry her - now go jump. She does - and then tells Joe that she's upset because she loves Joe, not Frank. Then Joe tells hers that Frank's rich -we're not going to let a little thing like marriage get in the way? Willie tells the creep to stay away from her from now on.

Part five
Joe tells Willie to get Frank's stash of money and they can run away together. Frank catches Joe trying to put on the moves and proceeds to whomp Joe silly. Then he tells Willie they are quitting the show. Willie says no way - "give me my share of the money - that's all I want". In the morning - she has a change of heart and tells Frank she will be a good wife. Frank apologizes for trying to push her around. Everything looks great - till Frank crashes into the deck - making Willie a widow and rich. But she feels only sorrow for losing Frank.

Part six
Now Frank's friend - Bill Vines tries courting Willie with no success. She still feels tied with Joe. Then Willie makes a mistake and is sent to the hospital. Bill nurses her back to health - then she zips off to Germany to see Joe and try her hand at diving again.

Part seven
Joe tells her he rigged Frank's platform so it would fall. She sees Joe for the jerk he is and tells him to leave. When he doesn't she screams - and in comes Groppo. Will Groppo get Joe - Will she die on her last dive? And what about the bearded lady? Watch the stunning conclusion.
