Storyboard Text

  • Knowing that Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with a heart trouble, great care was taken to break to her as gently as possible the news after her husband's death.
  • She sat with her head thrown back upon the cushion of the chair, quite motionless, except when a sob came up into her throat and shook her, as a child who cried itself to sleep continues to sob in it's dreams.
  • When she abandoned herself a little whispered word escaped her slightly parted lips. She said it over and over under her breath:"free, free, free!"
  • free, free, free!
  • Free! Body and soul free!
  • And yet she had loved him--sometimes. Often she had not. What did it matter! What could love, the unsolved mystery, count for in the face of this possession of self-assertion which she suddenly recognized as the strongest impulse of her being.
  • Someone was opening the front door with a latchkey. It was Brently Mallard, who entered, a little travel-stained.
  • When the doctors came they said she had died of a heart disease--of joy that kills.
