Storyboard Text

  • As Rainsford reports to the rail of the boat, "The Cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea closed over his head," (Connell 63).
  • As Rainsford observesth ocean waters, he meets General Zaroff and Ivan. "It is a very great pleasure to welcome Mr. Sanger Rainsford, the celebrated hunter, to my home." (Connell 65)
  • "'Now you want clothes, food, rest. You shall have them . This is a most restful spot,'" (Connell 66).
  • General Zaroff exclaimed, "'So I said: 'What are the attributes of an ideal quarry?' 'And the answer was of course: 'It must have courage, cunning, and above all, it must be able to reason.' 'But no animal can reason,' objected Rainsford. 'My dear fellow,' said the general, 'there is one that can.' 'But you can't mean--' gasped Rainsford. 'And why not?' 'I can't believe you are serious General Zaroff. This is a grisly joke.'Why should I not be serious? I am speaking of hunting.' 'Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder.'" (Connell 69-70)
  • Rainsford coached himself. "Rainsford had fought his way through the bush for two hours. 'I must keep nerve. I must keep my nerve,' he said through tight teeth," (Connell 75).
  • "The general sucked in his breath and smiled. 'I congratulate you,' he said. 'You have won the game.' Rainsford did not smile. 'I am still a beast at bay,' he said, in a low, hoarse voice. 'Get ready General Zaroff.' The general made one of his deepest bows. 'I see,' he said. 'Spelendid! One of us will furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On guard, Rainsford....' He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided," (Connell 80).
