not afraid to face any

living animal, jittery

over an old sea legend.

I'll face anything I can

see over a gun sight.

But what I don't understand,

I'd rather avoid.

Alright, If you feel that way about it.

Take the other course Captain.

Yes, Sir.

Come on fellas, let's forget

about it and have another drink.


Alright, Sir.

I don't mind admitting, I'll be glad

when we get clear of Beguerra island.

Hello? Hello?

Anyone in the boiler room.

Hello, engine room?

If water ever hits those hot boilers...

Hello, engine room.

Rainsford, help!

The shark got my foot.

I can't swim.

Hello, anyone there?


Say, is there anybody

around here?


Oh, is this your house?

I'm not trying to break in.

I just followed the

sound of the dogs.

My yacht just went down with all hands.

I think I'm the only one

that managed to get ashore.

Well, why don't you say something?

Or can't you speak English?

No, he can not.

Carib does not speak any language.

He has no voice.

He hears, but he cannot talk.

Good evening.

Good evening. Are you the

owner of this place?

Yes. My name is

Kreiger, Erich Kreiger.

I'm glad to meet you.

Very glad.

I was trying to make him understand

that there's been a shipwreck.

A wreck, how unfortunate.

Surely you are not

the only survivor.

I believe I am.

Carib, go search the shore,

see if there are any others.

Let me offer you a drink.

I guess I'm in luck.


The captain told us this

island was uninhabited.

There's usually only

myself and my servants.

Oh, thanks.

I certainly needed that.

How do you communicate with the mainland?

I don't... at least not often.

I'm a simple man, my wants are few.

I find my inspirations, even

my pleasures, in solitude.

But I'll see what can be done, Mr.?
