Storyboard Text

  • What was your motive for murdering the old man?
  • Hearken! and observe how healthily—how calmly I can tell you the whole story...
  • I loved the old man. He had never wronged me. He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire.
  • So why did you commit the deed?
  • I still do not understand why you had to kill the old man!
  • I think it was his eye! yes, it was this! One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture…
  • I cannot believe you killed a man to get rid of his "vulture" eye?
  • I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye for ever.
  • Now this is the point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded—with what caution
  • Wouldn't this make you even more mad, now that we know you planned this poor mans murder?
  • Every night about midnight I turned the latch of his door and opened it—oh, so gently! And then, when I had made an opening sufficient for my head, I put in a dark lantern all closed, closed so that no light shone out, and then I thrust in my head.
  • So how did you commit the murder?
