Storyboard Text

  • In the short story "The Mot Dangerous Game", Rainsford and Whitney are about to  go to sleep. "'I'm not sleepy,' said Rainsford. 'I'm going to smoke another pipe up on the afterdeck.' 'Good night, then, Rainsford. See you at breakfast.' 'Right. Good night, Whitney.'" Then Whitney went to sleep while Rainsford was up.
  • Rainsford fell out of the yacht and was swimming to the island he saw till he heard a surprising noise. "He heard it again; then it was cut short by another noise, crisp, staccato. 'Pistol shot,' muttered Rainsford, swimming on."
  • Rainsford found a house while walking around in a jungle and the guy who opened the door was suspicious of Rainsford. "'Don't be alarmed,' said Rainsford, with a smile which he hoped was disarming. 'I'm no robber. I fell off a yacht. My name is Sanger Rainsford of New York City.'" After a while General Zaroff comes to greet Rainsford and introduces Ivan, the guy who opened the door.
  • Zaroff set traps for Rainsford and he successfully doesn't get into any of the traps. Yet now he is in the dark woods and hears a sound and sharpens his knife. "They must have reached the knife. He shinned excitedly up the tree and looked back. His purduers had stopped. But the hope that was in Rainsford's brain when he climbed died, for he saw in shallow valley that General Zaroff was still on his feet. But Ivan wasn't."
  • Knowing that the knife didn't hit Zaroff Rainsford runs towards the sea. "Then he leaped far out into the sea.... When the general and his pack reached the place by the sea, the Cossack stopped."
  • Raisnford swam all the way to the General's house and the General was surprised as to how he got there and said, "'I congratulate you,' he said. 'You have won the game.' Rainsford did not smile. 'I am still a beats at bay.'" He then killed General Zaroff and took his bed.
