The Pedestrian

Storyboard Text

  • Mr. Leonard Mead walks around his streets for hours at night
  • I wonder if ever a cottage or home's window will give light...
  • He was entertained by picking up leaves
  • He is talking to houses while circling back to his own house
  • To step over grassy seams and make your way, hands inpockets, through the silences, that was what Mr.Leonard Mead most dearly loved to do. (Bradbury 1)
  • A police catches him and arrest Mr. Leonard
  • He listened to the faint push of his soft shoes through autumn leaves with satisfaction, and whistled a cold quiet whistle between his teeth, occasionally picking up a leaf as he passed, examining its skeletal pattern in the infrequent lamplights as he went on, smelling its rusty smell. (Bradford 1)
  • The police decides takes Mr. Leonard to the Psychiatric Center.
  • Fascinating! An autumn leaf.
  • Hello, in there, he whispered to every house on every side as he moved. What's up tonight on Channel 4, Channel 7, Channel 9? Where are the cowboys rushing, and do I see the United States Cavalry over the next hill to the rescue? (Bradford 1).
  • They pass by his house as Mr. Leonard was within a block of his destination
  • A metallic voice called to him: Stand still. Stay where you are! Don't move!He halted. Put up your hands!But- he said.Your hands up! Or we'll Shoot! (Bradford 1).
  • What! You can't arrest me, I was just walking as always.
  • Where are you taking me?The car hesitated, or rather gave a faint whirring click, as if information, somewhere, was dropping card by punch-slotted card under electric eyes. To the Psychiatric Center for Research on Regressive Tendencies. (Bradford 2)
  • He is out of my control...
  • They passed one house on one street a moment later, one house in an entire city of houses that were dark, but this one particular house had all of its electric lights brightly lit, every window a loud yellow illumination, square and warm in the cool darkness. (Bradford 1)
  • That's my house!
