Storyboard Text

  • The old charts call it "Ship-Trap Island". A suggestive name isn't it? Sailors have a curious dread of the place...
  • The best sport in the world
  • For the hunter, not the jaguar
  • Great sport, hunting. 
  • Cannibals?
  • Hardly. Even cannibals wouldn't live in such a God-forsaken place.
  • This place has a reputation--a bad one.
  • Rainsford and Whitney are discussing Ship-Trap island when they spot it on their way to Rio during a dark night on the boat.
  • Yes, even that tough-minded old Swede, who'd go up to the devil himself and ask him for a light. Those fishy blue eyes held a look I never saw there before. All I could get out of him was `This place has an evil name among seafaring men, sir.' Then he said to me, very gravely, `Don't you feel anything?'--as if the air about us was actually poisonous. Now, you mustn't laugh when I tell you this--I did feel something like a sudden chill.
  • The topic of the conversation shifts to whether hunting is moral or not. Rainsford says that it is while Whitney believes that it isn't.
  • Their conversation shifts back to Ship-Trap island and what may be there.
  • Rainsford and Whitney mention that even Captain Nielsen (who seems very tough according to Whitney and Rainsford)  is afraid of the island.
  • Whitney gets tired and goes to bed. Rainsford decides he is not tired and goes to smoke a pipe in a chair on the afterdeck.
  • Rainsford hears a noise and decides to investigate, leading him to fall into the water.
