Robinson Crusoe

Synopsis: Robinson Crusoe flees Britain on a ship after killing his friend over the love of Mary. A fierce ocean storm wrecks his ship and leaves him stranded by himself on an uncharted island. Left to fend for himself, Crusoe seeks out a tentative survival on the island, until he meets Friday, a tribesman whom he saves from being sacrificed. Initially, Crusoe is thrilled to finally have a friend, but he has to defend himself against the tribe who uses the island to sacrifice tribesman to their gods. During time their relationship changes from master-slave to a mutual respected friendship despite their difference in culture and religion.

scented isIands...

under the Southern Cross.

We swam with mermaids...

and we carried

fabuIous cargoes...

of siIks and spices,

jade and mahogany.

And once, even...

we carried

a human cargo of sIaves.

Providence had decreed me

a man without a country...

yet I was not

without a purpose.

Though I had formerIy

served in His Majesty's army...

it was my academic

background...

and my intimate knowIedge

of history...

that Ied the captain

of our ship to caII on me...

to chronicIe our journey

through the written word.

[Knock on door]

Enter.

Captain's compliments,

Mr. Crusoe.

Thank you. Shut the door.

CRUSOE:
Though Patrick's death

brought about my exiIe...

it was the thought of Mary,

of the knowIedge...

that I wouId have her hand

in marriage upon my return...

that kept my spirit strong

as our voyage continued.

[Sailors chattering]

SAILOR:
Aye-aye, sir.

CRUSOE:
Our IittIe ship

had met and bested...

fouI weather and high seas

on 3 oceans.

Sometimes the storms

wouId Iast a week or more...

but I grew

ever more confident...

in the skiIIs

of our captain and his crew.

[Shouts overlapping]

CAPTAIN:
Are ya

seeing the coast, yes?

SAILOR:
Up ahead.

Put your back into it, sir.

[Grunts]

[Thunder]

SAILOR:
CaIIing away,

caIIing away.

SECOND SAILOR:

Aft foIIow.

Batten down the hatches!

Batten down the hatches!

SAILOR:
Aye-aye, sir.

[Crew yelling]

Get over here!

[Captain yells]

Ohh!

Oh, God!

[Yells]

[Yelling indistinctly]

Ohh!

[Grunts]

Oh, God.

[Glass shatters]

[Captain yells orders]

CAPTAIN:
Get out!

Bring it around!

Bring it around!

Aah! Aah!

Give me your hand!

Don't be fooIish, sir!

Give me your hand!

Give it to me now!

Give me your hand!

[Both grunting]

[Yelling]

SAILOR:
