Storyboard Text

  •       "He had the eye of a vulture—a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees—very gradually—I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever."
  •      "And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it—oh, so gently! And then, when I had made an opening sufficient for my head, I put in a dark lantern, all closed, closed, so that no light shone out, and then I thrust in my head."
  •      "I kept quite still and said nothing. For a whole hour I did not move a muscle, and in the meantime I did not hear him lie down. He was still sitting up in the bed listening,—just as I have done, night after night, hearkening to the deathwatches in the wall."
  •       "The old man’s hour had come! With a loud yell, I threw open the lantern and leaped into the room. He shrieked once—once only."
  •     "It grew louder—louder—louder! And still the men chatted pleasantly, and smiled. Was it impossible they heard not?—no, no! They heard!—they suspected!—they knew!—they were making a mockery of my horror!—this I thought, and this I think. "
  •       "Villains!” I shrieked,“dissemble no more! I admit the deed!-tear up the planks!-here, here!-it is the beating of his hideous heart!"
