Storyboard Text

  • Two Desperate Men; Gentlemen: I received your letter today by post, in regard to the ransom you asked for the return of my son. I think you are a little high in your demands, and I hereby make you a counter-proposition, which I am inclined to believe you will accept. You bring Johnny home and pay me two hundred and fifty dollars in cash, and I agree to take him off your hands. You had better come at night, for the neighbors believe he is lost, and I couldn't be responsible for what they will do to anybody they saw bringing him back Very respectfully, Ebeneezer Dorset.
  • Sam, what's two hundred fifty dollars after all? We've got the money. One more night of this kid will send me to bed in bedlam.
  • Tell you the truth Bill, this little he ewe lamb has somewhat got on my nerves, too. We'll take him home, pay the ransom, and make our getaway.
  • We're going hunting bears tomorrow, so your dad has bought you a silver-mounted rifle and a pair of moccasins for you. We'll need to stop by at your house.
