West of Zanzibar

1  
Ashes to ashes!
 Dust to dust!

2
"Professor! Has she
   got a friend?"

3
"My little wife. You're
more beautiful than an
    angel tonight."

4
"You're tired, dear.
I'll put the things 
       away."

5
"Crane, dear, I can't go
away without telling him.
I've tried .... but I can't."

6
"I'll tell him, dear.
You get dressed....
I'll meet you outside."

7
"Aw, you poor blind idiot!
  Don't you understand?
      She's gone!"

8
"She loves me .... do you
  hear? And I'm taking 
     her to Africa!"

9
"Anna! Anna, I love you!
Don't go! I love you!"

10
"His wife's come back....
     with a baby."

11
"She went in the church.
I sent a kid to tell him."

12
"He told me you loved
him. That's why I
never followed you."

13
"For all the suffering 
he brought her ....
he's going to pay!"

14
"I'll find him! I'll make
  him pay! He and his 
    brat will pay!"

15
Eighteen years later --
   West of Zanzibar.

16
"King Lunkaboola....
   he .... come!"

17
"Dead-Legs, if you keep
bringin' these black-
birds here for your daft
shows ... they'll tumble
    to our game!"

18
"Forget it, Doc! Get my
    box of tricks!"

19
"We'll end up by being
 a mess of chops for
  those cannibals!"

20
"Chops nothin'! I'm
goin' to be king of 
  the whole pack!"

21
"Fire! Only ... thing ... great
... Evil Spirit ... fears!"

22
"White master ... greater ...
than ... all ... Evil Spirits!
  He ... fears ... nothing!"

23
"The idea, Babe .... wastin'
  our good gin on them
       cannibals."

24
"We've got the gin, Tiny!
I put kerosene in that
        bottle!"

25
MIDNIGHT -- --
   along deadly trails in
   the Heart of the Jungle.

26
Elephant Tusks - Ivory -
  Gold of the Congo.

27
VOODOOS! EVIL SPIRITS!
  The alarm spread .... the
  jungle flared with fires
  lighted to drive off the
  natives' black fear.

28
    "Voodoo .... come! Big....
    like .... elephant! No....
try ....take ....ivory....out....
        some .... more!"

29
"White master .... no ....
'fraid .... voodoo! Go....
    tell .... tribe!"

30
"Cripes, Gov'nor .... the
  Evil Spirit is at it
         again!"

31
"Evil Spirit .... my eye! It's
   somebody robbing me of 
          my ivory!"

32
"I'll root out this crook!
     I'll find him!"

33
"Dead-Legs is crazy to
keep stealin' that bloke's
ivory! He'll get nailed 
      ....sure!"

34
"We're the ones who are 
crazy! We'll get nailed....
       not him!"

35
"Hide that mask! If those
cannibals find out you're
the voodoo we'll land in
     the stew-pot!"

36
"Dead-Legs, we've robbed 
that trader of plenty!
Let's beat it before he
       gets us!"

37
"No.... I'm even goin' to
 send him word where
to find the man who's
    robbin' him!"

38
"I said 'NO'! He made me
this thing that crawls ....
now I'm ready to bite!"

39
"Yair.... bite! I'll bet that's
   what the cannibals did 
          to Babe!"

40
"Babe's all right! I sent 
    him to Zanzibar!"

41
"He's bringin' back a 
little sweetheart ....
      for Doc!"

42
"A blonde one!"

43
ZANZIBAR.

44
"Yes, I know .... I'm too
sweet and pretty for
a dump like this! I've
 heard that before!"

45
"Sure.... you hate to lose 
the girl. But Dead-Legs
has paid you plenty for
keepin' her, hasn't he?"

46
"You're to tell her I'm a
gentleman who's found
her father ... and I'm takin'
      her to him."

47
"And I'll miss you, too.
You're the only mother 
   I've ever known."

48
"No, Joe .... I've taken my
last drink of that stuff."

49
"That's right, Maizie.
That stuff never
did no one no good."

50
"No, brother. Such beverages
have never soiled my virgin
          lips."

51
 "On second thought, 
perhaps a little .... to
  check my malaria."

52
"Get Doc in here to
   fix my back!"

53
"Don't let him cut into 
you tonight! He's full
    of that stuff!"

54
"I don't look very nice 
  to meet my father."

55
"He'll be so happy to
see you that he'll
 never notice it."

56
"Are you .... my father?"

57
"I'm not your father."

58
 "Please excuse me ....
but, you see, I've never
   seen my father."

59
"What's your game .... his
lies about being a gentle-
man taking me to meet
      my father?"

60
"I'll tell you my game ....
    when I'm ready!"

61
"You're lucky! You're
just in time to see a big 
   native funeral!"

62
"Dead-Legs is chief Evil
Spirit chaser 'round here."

63
"It's a lovely custom!
  When a man dies
they always burn his
wife or daughter with
       him!"

64
"That's the law of the 
Congo .... and nothin' 
   can change it!"

65
"You're a puzzle, Dead-Legs.
One minute you're a fiend
and the next ... you're almost
          human."

66
"You ain't here to under-
stand me, Doc! You're
here 'cause I need you to
  keep me crawlin'!"

67
"At that, I guess it's 
healthier to be with 
  you than against 
        you."

68
"I wouldn't try gettin'
away again if I were 
        you."

69
"Don't worry .... I won't!
  I learned my lesson 
      last night!"

70
"Thanks .... I guess
     I need it."

71
"Take this .... it will
make you feel better."

72
"Break that glass!"

73
"I might drink out of 
 it .... by mistake!"

74
"Come on .... eat. You
   may as well make 
   the best of it."

75
"I'm particular who I 
eat with! Feed her
  on the floor!"

76
"I'm down pretty low ...
but not so far that
I'll stand for this!"

77
  "Yair? Well, you'll
stand for anything I say!"

78
"Say, Mister!"

79
"Don't get in trouble 
 on account of me."

80
"I'll eat with her! I'm 
 particular who I eat 
      with, too."

81
"I'm so sorry. I thought
you'd gone away .... so
   I gave them your 
       clothes."

82
"There's nothing too 
low for you to do, 
    is there?"

83
"Why let him feed you
with that stuff? You
look as if you used to 
    be somebody."

84
"Let's not talk about that.
Just seeing you has made
 me do enough thinking."

85
"Funny word! You tryin'
to forget who you are ...
and me tryin' to find 
   out who I am."

86
"You're only a kid. You've
still got a chance to be
   anything you want."

87
"So have you .... if you'll
   get hold of yourself.
      You're not old."

88
"Not old? From all I've
seen and done .... I'm as
  old as Santa Claus!"

89
"Santa Claus?"

90
"Yes .... I've heard
       of him."

91
"Me ... do ... like ... you say.
Me ... tell ... white trader ... 
you ... steal ... ivory. Three
days ... he ... be ... here."

92
"Now .... go .... tell .... tribe!
    White trader .... white
      girl's .... father!"

93
Three days passed --
    three days of planning.

94
"I've been waitin' 
    for you."

95
  "Word comes to me that
it's you who's been stealin' 
        my ivory."

96
"And I intend to pay 
you for everything."

97
"Phroso .... the magician!"

98
"Right you are....
   Mr. Crane!"

99
"I've got to give you 
credit .... you've got 
   another beauty."

100
"But you've certainly 
made a terrible wreck 
    of this one."

101
"Aw, stop teasing her!
  Give her what she 
       wants!"

102
"You poor kid .... what's
     he done to you?"

103
"You'll finish feeding her 
with this stuff .... do you
   hear? You'll finish!"

104
"Go easy, Doc! I don't
 need you any more!"

105
"No, you don't .... but she
does! And I love her, do
you understand? I love
          her!"

106
"No, no .... you can't have 
any more! Don't you see...
I love you! That's why!"

107
"Well, Phroso .... you're
   putting on a great 
         show!"

108
"Come on! What's this 
all about? What are
you wrecking that girl 
        for?"

109
"You'll find out. That's
   why I brought you 
         here."

110
"That's Anna's child!
   YOUR DAUGHTER!"

111
"When I found Anna.... 
she was dead! And
that brat of yours was
     with her!"

112
"Babe, tell Bumbu to
carry out my orders!"

113
"I had her raised in the 
lowest dive in Zanzibar
.... so you could be proud
        of her!"

114
"And now I've got a real 
treat comin' for her ....
   and her father!"

115
"You're her father .... not
    ME! She's .... your
     daughter! YOURS!"

116
"Now listen! Your wife
never went away with 
me..... Do you hear? She
never went away with me!"

117
"When she found out 
what I did to you ....
  she hated me!"

118
"You're feelin' kinda
 shaky, ain't you?"

119
"A lot you care how 
     I feel."

120
"Tiny, get her some
       brandy."

121
"I've got a boat 
    waitin'."

122
"I'm goin' to take you 
 away from all this."

123
"Please drink this. It'll
 make you feel better."

124
"I was right! There's 
nothing too vile for 
    you to do!"

125
"Keep out of this, Doc!
I told you I don't need
    you any more!"

126
"We ... do ... like ... you ...
    say!  We ... shoot ... 
   white girl's father!"

127
"How did God ever put 
a thing like you on 
    this earth?"

128
"Tiny! Babe! Take him 
 out of this room!"

129
"Get in there and keep 
him alive, Doc! Don't
  you let him die!"

130
"If he dies .... the natives
   will come and take
          her!"

131
"He's dead! That means 
the girl goes with him!"

132
"If she's going ... Dead-Legs
      will go first!"

133
"My baby! My own
  little girl!"

134
"The drums! They
know he's dead!"

135
"White man .... dead.
We .... come .... get....
        him."

136
"I'll tell you the truth,
dear! You'll believe
me .... won't you?"

137
"On my oath he was
not your father!"

138
"Your father is --"

139
"-- your father died
     years ago."

140
"Get her in that room!
They're comin' for her!"

141
"We .... come .... get ....
      white girl."

142
"We .... make .... her .... 
ready ... for ... funeral ...
here. Bring .... tribe."

143
"I'll never leave you, dear!
   I'll never leave you!"

144
"We'll fight for you!
Whatever happens ....
we're going through 
   it together!"

145
"You've got to save her!
You've got to tell them
      the truth!"

146
"It's too late! They'd
never believe me now!"

147
"Then we've got to 
make a break for it!"

148
"We couldn't get her 
across the compound!
Their eyes are glued 
      on her!"

149
"There isn't a chance to 
stop them! We've got to 
go through the ceremony 
      with her."

150
"You'll never get away
      with that!"

151
"Go tell her what we've
      got to do!"

152
"Fire ... ready ... for ...
    white ... girl."

153
"I know what I'm doin', 
Doc! I've got it all
    figured out."

154
"Doc, I'd like her to say 
    good-bye to me."

155
"No! Don't believe
him!  He's lying!
It's a trap for me!"

156
"Please! Please don't
believe him! Don't
let them take me!"

157
"But I believe him! You've 
    got to trust him!"

158
"Dear, we've got to forget
hate.  He couldn't do
what he plans to do ....
   and still hate."

159
"Gee, but you're a 
   strange man."

160
"White girl .... funeral ....
  always ... have ... box."

161
"White man .... must ....
         go."

162
"Evil Spirit .... come ....
  take .... white girl."

163
"No .... believe!"
