The Eagle

[Reconstructed titles]

1
A blare of trumpets - the
  rolling of drums. The
Czarina is about to inspect
her favorite regiment, the
handsomest in all Russia.

2
"Reminds me of when I
     was a girl."

3
"The Czarina has been 
watching you ride the 
devil out of her favorite 
        horse."

4
"I am Vladimir Doubrovski,
   lieutenant in Your
    Majesty's Guard."

5
"Captain Kuschka, you will
report with him at the 
palace tonight at six
       o'clock."

6
"Don't worry, my boy. If
she wants you at six, it
  means supper - not
      Siberia!"

7
"Lieutenant, your horseman-
ship and your courage
thrilled me. I'm going to
 give you that horse."

8
"Have you the desire
 to be a general?"

9
"A young lieutenant as
brave as you might
  well aspire -"

10
"I'm afraid I'm too young 
    to be a general."

11
"Lieutenant Kalinin's death 
warrant - for Your Majes-
    ty's signature."

12
"Your Majesty is crying?"

13
"Tears of love, my boy.
You are the first Russian
who sees his Czarina 
        cry."

14
"I have a little surprise for 
you, my Cossack. I'll be 
       right back."

15
"Are you mad, boy?"

16
"I advise you not to leave."

17
"I enlisted for war service 
           only."

18
"The Czarina orders that
the deserter Vladimir Dou-
brovski, lieutenant of the
Imperial Guard, be brought
   in, dead or alive."

19
"Your Majesty is served!"

20
"Captain Kuschka, have
you the desire to be a 
      general?"

21
"Your arm, please."

22
In a remote province
  Kyrilla - a bully and
braggard - celebrates his 
fraudulent seizure of the
  Doubrovski estate.

23
"You all know me for an
honest judge - and I'm
glad I could help Kyrilla
 in the matter of the
  Doubrovski estate."

24
"Here's the key to my 
cellar. You're a good
judge of law. Let's see
if you're a good judge 
     of liquor."

25
"Miss Mascha's coach is
  coming up the road."

26
"Daughter!"

27
"Your gentle old father
  welcomes you home."

28
In a peasant's humble
dwelling, old Doubrov-
ski - robbed of home
and happiness by Kyrilla
- is breathing his last.

29
"Father!"

30
"Master Vladimir, free us
from the yoke of Kyrilla!
   Avenge your faith!"

31
"The Governor has given
Kyrilla a strong guard of
Cossacks. It will be no
easy task. Are you with 
         me?"

32
"I swear vengeance against 
Kyrilla and all his kin!"

33
Before long the countryside
  rang with the exploits of
Vladimir - dedicating his life
to bringing Kyrilla to justice
- concealing his identity be-
hind a mask - his dash and
bravery - won him the name
  of "The Black Eagle".

34
"As if Kyrilla fears a boy's 
threats. Why, I've heard 
the roar of cannon with-
    out a tremble."

35
"Kyrilla sent the sheriff to
seize all our belongings -
     even the donkey."

36
"My compliments to your
mother. You may tell her
my motto is 'An eye for 
an eye, and a horse for a 
        donkey'!"

37
"You'll be welcome at the 
Black Eagle's nest, my
         lady."

38
"Sic 'em, Caesar!"

39
"Good news, Master - It's
Kyrilla's daughter - his only
          child!"

40
"The Black Eagle does not
   war against women!"

41
"My lady, you are as free 
as you are beautiful - and
that is very, very free!"

42
"Haven't we met before?"

43
"I think not. I don't asso-
  ciate with masked men
        as a rule."

44
"I'm wondering how long
 you can keep this up?"

45
"I'd rather die on my feet
than ride on your horse!"

46
"Isn't that much better?"

47
"Une voiture et des che-
 vaux - taut de suite!"

[dissolves to:]

"A carriage and horses -
     immediately!"

48
"A carriage and horses -
     immediately!"

49
"Yes, Monsieur, I speak 
  French but I'm in a 
     great hurry."

50
"A man named Kyrilla has
engaged me as French
tutor for his daughter."

51
"I pass his estate and I'll
   be glad to drop you 
          there."

52
"To Castle Kyrilla."

53
"Haven't we met before?"

54
"I think not. I don't asso-
  ciate with ladies of
  quality, as a rule."

55
"You see - er - my coach 
was held up by a masked
gentleman. He called him-
 self the Black Eagle."

56
"He told me to give the
Lady Mascha this ring as 
a token of his devotion."

57
"Return it to the Black
Eagle, if you're ever
   with him again."

58
"Lucky for him that he isn't 
here now. I'd rip his heart
    out by the roots."

59
"The Black Eagle also 
entrusted me with a 
  note for you."

60
Revenge is sweet, but
sometimes a girl is 
     sweeter.

61
"Isn't this soup delicious?"

62
"Too much pepper in the 
soup means too much fire 
in the heart. Young man,
   you're in love!"

63
"Let us drink success and
 long life to our host,
       Kyrilla."

64
"What are you thinking 
        about?"

65
"About - the Black Eagle!"

66
"If he were here, I'd plead
with him not to make ven-
geance his only aim in life."

67
"He seems determined,
Mademoiselle - but he
might listen to you."

68
"I'm delighted with my
daughter's progress in
French. You shall have a
       reward."

69
"Go into my cellar and
pick out a bottle of
     the best."

70
"Where have they taken
  Monsieur Le Blanc?"

71
While the rest of the 
 castle slumbered -

72
"Master Vladimir, your men
are tired of waiting. Are
you breakng your oath of
vengeance for this girl?"

73
"The Black Eagle!"

74
"Kyrilla, this is my hour!"

75
"The blasted thing isn't 
         loaded!"

76
"The Black Eagle was here!"

77
"One of you men must
remain and guard the
      Master."

78
"The devil take you all for
    a pack of cowards!"

79
"There's the man to guard 
           me!"

80
"Monsieur Le Blanc is a 
fearless fellow - reminds 
me of myself when I was 
        young!"

81
"I promise you - the Black
Eagle will not harm your 
father while I'm here."

82
"Don't be silly, Mascha.
He's massaging my head-
      ache away."

83
"Time for your French 
   lesson, Mascha."

84
"I am sure Monsieur Le
Blanc is too tired after 
his strenuous guard duty."

85
"I'm in no mood for a 
lesson today - my nerves 
    are on edge."

86
"Would you like a massage,
           too?"

87
"I wonder what you think 
         of me?"

88
"I can tell you in three 
  words - I hate you!"

89
"I won't go until you have 
      forgiven me."

90
"I hate you! I'll call my 
father's Cossacks and 
tell them who you are!"

91
"This is the Black Eagle's 
lieutenant. We caught
him prowling about the 
       grounds."

92
"Where is the Black Eagle?"

93
"I'm the man you want! I
  am the Black Eagle!"

94
"Don't worry. I'm not 
 going to run away."

95
"Are you blind, Vladimir?
Day and night I've fought 
  against loving you -
   fought and lost!"

96
"This man is the Czarina's 
        prisoner."

97
"I beg you to free this boy
    - Thanks to him -"

98
"- I became a general."

99
"General Kuschka will be in
charge of the execution. I
shall hold him personally
     responsible."

100
The Czarina's prisoner had
 made one last request -
   and it was granted.

101
"My firing squad is ready
- and six o'clock is the
          hour."

102
"Kuschka! You must save
him! I don't want him
         shot!"

103
"Will Your Majesty kindly
  sign this passport?"

104
"But - that's Doubrovski!"

105
"Impossible, Your Majesty.
Doubrovski died at six 
o'clock. This is Monsieur
Le Blanc - when you sign 
     the passport."
