Tell-Tale Heart

Storyboard Text

  • He had the eye of a vulture, Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold, I made up my mind to take the life of the old man.
  • And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it, Oh, you would have laughed to see how cunningly I thrust it in!
  • The old man's hour had come! In an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him. The old man was dead. I removed the bed and examined the corpse.
  • The night waned, and I worked hastily, but in silence. First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs. I then took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings.
  •  There entered three men, who introduced themselves as officers of the police and they had been deputed to search the premises.
  • I answered cheerily, they chatted of familiar things. But, ere long, I felt myself getting pale and wished them gone.
  •  I foamed --I raved --I swore! I swung the chair upon which I had been sitting, and grated it upon the boards, but the noise arose over all and continually increased. It grew louder --louder --louder!
  • "Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
