Storyboard Text

  • "Out through that window, three years ago to a day, her husband and her two young brothers went off for their day's  shooting. They never came back... Their bodies were never recovered... Poor aunt always thinks that they will come back some day, they and the little brown spaniel that was lost with them, and walk in that window just as they used to do. That is why the window is kept open every evening till it is quite dusk."
  • "I hope you don't mind the open window, my husband and brothers will be home directly from shooting, and they always come in this way. They've been out for snipe in the marshes today, so they'll make a fine mess over my poor carpets. So like you menfolk, isn't it?"
  • "She has been very interesting,"
  • "I hope Vera has been amusing you?"
  • "The doctors agree in ordering me complete rest, an absence of mental excitement, and avoidance of anything in the nature of violent physical exercise. On the matter of diet they are not so much in agreement."
  • "No? Here they are at last! Just in time for tea, and don't they look as if they were muddy up to the eyes."
  • ♩♪"I said, Bertie, why do you bound?"♪♩
  • "A most extraordinary man, a Mr. Nuttel, could only talk about his illnesses, and dashed off without a word of goodbye or apology when you arrived. One would think he had seen a ghost."
  • "Here we are my dear, fairly muddy, but most of its dry. Who was that who bolted out as we came up?
  • "I expect it was the spaniel, he told me he had a horror of dogs. He was once hunted into a cemetery somewhere on the banks of the Ganges by a pack of pariah dogs, and had to spend the night in a newly dug grave with the creatures snarling and grinning and foaming just above him. Enough to make anyone lose his nerve."
  • Romance at short notice was her specialty.
