Storyboard Text

  • This is Miss Emily's house. When she died, the whole town was eager to see inside her home. The only time the door opens is when the old man servant enters with bags from the market. Nobody knows why Emily hasn't come out. They have not seen Miss Emily in ten years.
  • While Miss Emily was alive, she did not have to pay taxes. Colonel Sartoris remitted her taxes and told her that her father took care of it while he was alive. The next generation of council officers did not agree with this and wanted her taxes, but she refused.
  • The townspeople complained to the Council of a ghastly smell coming from the house of Miss Emily. The next night, four men snuck onto her property and sprinkled lime on her lawn. She secretly watched from her window. The smell went away soon after that.
  • People noticed that Miss Emily was spending a lot of time with Mr. Homer Barron. They were always riding around with each other. Whenever they saw her, she had her head held high, keeping her dignity. She went to a drug store and bought rat poison, called arsenic. People in the town thought that she would kill herself, then they said she would marry Homer. She was a little over 30 now. News spread that he liked men, so no one knew what would happen.
  • No one saw Homer Barron for a while, but they did notice that Emily bought a new wardrobe for a man and a toilet set with Homer's initials on it. People assumed they got married. The people only saw Homer one more time and then never again. They saw Miss Emily rarely. She did not come out for seven years and when she did, she was very old. She never came outside again. She died in her house of an illness.
  • At Miss Emily's funeral, once she was buried, the towns people decided to search her house. When they game to a closed door, they knocked it down. Dust circled them and covered the room. It was a room fit for a bride. They saw a toilet set for a man, and a suit and tie laid out. That is when they saw Homer Barron, laying on the bed, fleshless. The pillow next to him had a head indent, and laying on it was a piece of of gray hair... The color of Miss Emily's.
