I daresay I would.

That's why I've chosen

to strike first.

He doesn't even know that Ronald Burton

has returned from Africa.

I have that advantage.

If you'll pardon my saying so, sir,

that isn't very much.

We ought to be getting close

to the border by now.

[Driver Shouting

Commands To Horses]



Hyah. Giddap.

I'm courier for

the Count von Bruno, sir.

[Driver] Whoa.

Good. I'm Richard Beckett.

This is my man, Romley.

Hey, you.

Give a hand with the baggage!

You are to transfer

to the count's coach

for the rest of the journey.

Are we far from the castle?

Another day's trip.

We stop overnight

at the halfway point.

The count has already

made arrangements for you.

We're ready, Mr. Beckett.

You, up here with me.

My man rides with me.

But sir, he's a servant.

Nevertheless, he's still a man,

and it's bitter cold out.

I'd extend a like invitation to you,

but unfortunately someone has to drive.

- Where did you say

we're spending the night?

- I didn't say.

It's an inn called The Green Man.

[Men Laugh]

Ah. Your wine is excellent,

Herr Krantz.

Thank you, thank you.

It is from the vineyards

of the Rhine valley

the best in the world.


But, uh, Mein Herr, everything

was taken care of by the count.

Forget it, man.

[Men Laugh, Chattering]

Local crowd?

All tenants of the Count von Bruno.

They come here for relaxation.

We try to please

our guests.

I'd already heard of your excellent hospitality...

from two friends of mine

who stopped here some time ago:

Sterling and Brown.

You remember them of course.

No. I never heard of them.

And now, if you will excuse me,

I will see about your rooms.

He's lying.



Isn't that our driver over there?
