A Fox Hunt

Synopsis: The Meet: The hounds are joyously romping about in anticipation of a good run. They journey from the kennels to the starting place of the meet, where several members of the hunt are waiting. The master soon has everything arranged, and the horn is blown and off they go. In Full Cry: The hounds are away. Picking up the scent, off they rush through hedge and wood and bush. We catch sight several times of the fox scampering on in terror with the hounds in full cry. The Kill: After an exciting, ringing chase, the hounds pounce upon their prey and quickly kill. They are all gathered together, and off they trot to the assembling place. The dead fox is thrown amongst the hounds, who very soon break it up. The brush is then presented to the lady of the hunt. Return to the Kennels: After such a good chase the horn is blown and the return journey is made. The members, pleased with the chase, trot lazily back, and the pack are conducted back to their kennels.

Oh great! A mistake!

Chilling, Belikov?

I've got a question.

Did you see two people running here?

- No, I didn't.

- Think for a while.

One of them was tall, wore a jacket.

Other one a bit shorter, wore a raincoat.

Long-haired, like you.

- Like me?

- That's right.

- Maybe it was me then?

- Maybe. How should I know?

- Me it is then. Deal.

- Oh come on!

If there had been someone suspicious,

we would have told you at once.

- Why aren't you saying anything, Belikov?

- What is there to say?

Answer us. Did you see or didn't you?

I didn't.

- Alright then.

- Although...

- Yes, there was this guy, tall one...

- Yeah, right.

- And another one, shorter, in a raincoat.

- Right.

- Long-haired...

- Exaclty.


- Belikov...

- What?

Did you or did you not see?

I didn't.

So why are messing with us?

Stop wasting our time.

Let's go!

- Turn around!

- What for?

Turn around, now.

I recognized him.

Made a mistake,then recognized...

Alright, let's turn around.

Hello then!

Hello, my dear!

- Is there anything you'd like to tell me?

- What should he tell you?

Repeat what you told me las time.

So that I can hear it now.

Got your tongue, Belikov?

- Say what? I don't understand.

- Say it out loud, don't be afraid.

Say, "Piss off!"

- Well, piss off.

- It's him!

I recognized your voice!

I recognized his voice!

Let him show his sleeve then.

His sleeve must be torn.

I grabbed it when I fell.

Stand up!

- Come on.

- Stand up!

Didn't you hear? Stand up, Belikov.

Here, see!

Stop tickling me. I've got nothing.

- I see. Threw it away, didn't you?

- Threw away what?

Evidence, that's what.

- Where's that iron thing, jerk?

- What iron thing?

- The one you hit me with!

- Stop it!

- My vision is still blurred.

- Vova!

- With my fist.

- Bullcrap!

You've nearly smashed my head.

Do you get it?

Let's go.

- We'll be driving on Lenin St, right?

- Exaclty.

Maybe, you'll give her a lift then?

It's dark, there's a lot of riffraff.

Are you afraid of riffraff then, Belikov?

Get in.

- Where are we going?

- To the police station, where else.

We took a turn, it's the other way.

Wait and see.

- Hello there.

- Hello.

- You've got work in the morning, Kalinina.

- I'll manage.

Let him sleep.

We'll just look at him, to make sure.

Come in then.

- Hello.

- Hello.

- Come in.
