Storyboard Text

  • On the way to the catacomb, Montresor and Fortunato talk about the Montresor's Family crest and motto which is •"A huge human foot d'or, in a field azure; the foot crushes a serpent rampant whose fangs are imbedded in the heel." And the motto is •"Nemo me impune lacessit."
  • This is the climax where Fortunato is chained to the wall by Montresor doomed to die. Even if he does not know it "as he stepped unsteadily forward, while I followed immediately at his heels. In niche, and finding an instant he had reached the extremity of the niche, and finding his progress arrested by the rock, stood stupidly bewildered. A moment more and I had fettered him to the granite. In its surface were two iron staples, distant from each other about two feet, horizontally. From one of these depended a short chain, from the other a padlock. Throwing the links about his waist, it was but the work of a few seconds to secure it. He was too much astounded to resist. Withdrawing the key I stepped back from the recess."
  • The falling action is when Montresor says "For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them. In pace requiescat!" Which shows that he has no remorse for Fortunato.
