Synopsis: I Walked with a Zombie is a 1943 horror film directed by Jacques Tourneur. It was the second horror film from producer Val Lewton for RKO Pictures.

WILKENS:

(permitting himself a dry

little smile)

Very well. That means that you

have met all Mr. Holland's

requirements. Now, as to salary --

it's quite good -- two hundred

dollars a month.

BETSY:

(pleased)

That is good. But I'd like to know

more about the case.

WILKENS:

I'm afraid I'm not able to tell you

much. Only that the patient is a young

woman -- the wife of a Mr. Paul

Holland with whom we do

considerable business.

BETSY:

That will mean another interview,

won't it?

WILKENS:

No, this is quite final. You see,

Mr. Holland is a sugar planter. He

lives in St. Sebastian Island in

the West Indies.

BETSY:

The West Indies?

WILKENS:

(he's been expecting this)

A year's contract -- a trip with

all expenses paid -- that's not so

bad, you know.

BETSY:

But it's so far away...

WILKENS:

That's rather nice, isn't it?

Wilkens glancing at the snow falling outside the windows.

WILKENS (cont'd)

(a little wistfully)

Sit under a palm tree -- go

swimming -- take sun baths. Just

like a holiday...

BETSY:

Palm trees --

MONTAGE OF SHIPS

A great Canadian luxury liner, a boat like the Empress of

Canada, proceeds across the screen from left to right.

Another ship, a smaller passenger steamer, going in the same

direction, takes her place as she DISSOLVES OFF; then a

freighter, and finally a small white-hulled trading schooner

comes onto the screen.

BETSY'S VOICE

(narrating)

Boats grow smaller to reach out-of

the-way ports. Judging by the

boats that took me to St. Sebastian

-- it's far away and hard to get

to. First, there was the great

liner to Havana -- then a smaller

steamer to Port au Prince -- a

freighter to Gonave -- and from

Gonave, one of the little island

trading schooners that carry sugar

and sisal, sponges and salt all

over the Caribbean.
