Storyboard Text

  • In the town of Vladimir lived a young merchant named Ivan Dmitrich Aksionov. He had two shops and a house of his own.
  • Aksionov was a handsome, fair-haired, curly-headed fellow, full of fun, and very fond of singing. When quite a young man he had been given to drink, and was riotous when he had had too much; but after he married he gave up drinking, except now and then.
  • One summer Aksionov was going to the Nizhny Fair, and as he bade good-bye to his family, his wife said to him,
  • Ivan Dmitrich, do not leave; I have had a bad dream about you with gray hair!
  • You just fear I shall drink a lot!
  • Travelling halfway, he met a merchant whom he knew and they stayed at an inn. They had some tea together and went to bed in adjoining rooms.
  • It was not Aksionov's habit to sleep late, and, wishing to travel while it was still cool, he aroused before dawn. Suddenly a troika drove up with tinkling bells and soldiers came over to question him.
  • Where did you spend last night? Were you alone, or with a fellow-merchant?
  • They investigated his room because they found the merchant with his throat slit.
  • How is it that there's a blood-stained knife in your belongings?
  • I...I d-d-don't kn-know!
