Storyboard Text

  • At Portia's house in Belmont, the Prince of Argon has arrived to chose his chest 
  • -----
  • -----
  • Here are the three chests, chose the  one right and i will be yours forever
  • -----
  • The gold one, has an inscription that says, “He who chooses me will get what many men want.”
  • -----
  • The silver one, says, “He who chooses me will get what he deserves.” 
  • -----
  • But how will i know if i chose the right one?
  • The third one is made of dull lead. It has a blunt warning that says, “He who chooses me must give and risk all he has.” 
  • -----
  • -----
  • One of them contains my picture. If you choose that one, I’m yours
  • -----
  • One of these three boxes contain her lovely picture. Couldthe lead one contains it? No, it’d be a sin to think such a low thought. Is sheenclosed in silver, which is ten times less valuable than gold? Oh, what asinful thought! Nobody ever set a gem like her in a worse setting than gold. Herean angel’s lying in a golden bed. Give me the key. I will choose this one andtry my chances.
  • -----
  • -----
  • -----
  • (Portia hands him a key) There, take it, prince. And if my picture’s in there, then I’m yours.
  • -----
  • Damn it! What’s this? It’s a skull with a scroll in its empty eye socket. I’ll read it aloud. "All that glitters is not gold— You’ve often heard that said. Many men have sold their souls just to view my shiny surface. But gilded tombs contain worms. If you’d been as wise as you were bold, With an old man’s mature judgment, You wouldn’t have had to read this scroll. So goodbye—you lost your chance.”
  • Lost my chance indeed! So goodbye hope, and hello despair. Portia, goodbye to you. My heart’s too sad for long goodbyes. Losers always leave quickly.
  • -----
  • -----
  • -----
  • I hope everyone who looks like him will make the same choice.
