We hear labored breathing.

QUOTE FADES OUT:
WE STAY ON BLACK
Then a MAN'S VOICE talks over the breathing;
Do you find me sadistic?
BLACK AND WHITE CU of a WOMAN
lying on the floor, looking up. The woman on the floor has
just taken a severe spaghetti-western-style gang beating. Her
face is bloody, beaten up, and torn. The high contrast B/W
turning the red blood into black blood.
A hand belonging to the off-screen Man's Voice ENTERS FRAME
holding a white handkerchief with the name "BILL" sewn in the
corner, and begins tenderly wiping away the blood from the
young woman's face. Little by little as the Male Voice
speaks, the beautiful face underneath is revealed to the
But what can't be wiped away, is the white hot hate that
shines in both eyes at the man who stands over her, the
"BILL" of the title.
In another age men who shook the world for their own purposes
were called conquerors. In our age, the men who shake the
planet for their own power and greed are called corrupters.
And of the world's corrupters Bill stands alone. For while he
corrupts the world, inside himself he is pure.
I bet I could fry an egg on your
head about now, if I wanted to.
He continues wiping away the blood.
No kiddo, I'd like to believe, even
now, you're aware enough to know
there isn't a trace of sadism in
my actions... Okay - Maybe towards
these other jokers - bot not your.
We see for a moment, A WIDE SHOT looking down at the woman on
the floor. Bill(from behind) bent down over her. Four others
in black suits, standing over her(three are female, one is
male). And about four DEAD BODIES lying in their own blood.
We also see we're in a wedding chapel that's been redecorated
by blood death and gunfire. And firstly or lastly, depending
on the viewer, that the woman on the floor is dressed in a
white bridal gown.
This woman is our Heroine, and from this moment forth she
will only be referred to as The BRIDE.
Back to CU of The BRIDE.
The BRIDE on the floor. Her pretty face is wiped clean.
No Kiddo at this moment, this is me
at my most masochistic.
While still in her CU The Bride speaks for the first time in
the picture. She looks up at the man standing over her and
Bill, I'm pregnant. It's your baby.
After saying the "y" in "baby", we hear a BANG and The Bride
receives a bullet in the side of her head.
"The 4th Film by
B/W CU of a Young MAN in a TUXEDO. Shot to death.
The BRIDE speaks to us in a VO;
That's Tim, Arthur's best friend.
CU A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN in a frilly pink dress with two
bullet holes in her.
That's his girlfriend Janeen.
CU A PLUMP YOUNG WOMAN, shot to death, wedding bouquet still
clutched in her dead fist.
That's my best friend from work
AN OLDER MAN IN A BLACK SUIT shot fulla holes.
That's the minister. I think his
name was Reverend Hillhouse.
A DEAD OLDER WOMAN by his side in an old-fashioned flower
That's his wife.
A DEAD OLDER WOMAN slumped over an organ.
Organ player, don't know her name.
A YOUNG MAN IN A TUXEDO WITH HIS FACE BLOWN OFF.
That's Arthur. Arthur Plympton. The
name on his driver's license was
Charles Arthur Plympton, but for
some reason he preferred Arthur.
Maybe if he went by Carles people
would have called him Charlie. If
that was his reason for going by
Arthur I can understand it.
Nothing wrong with the name
Charlie, except he didn't look like
a Charlie, he looked like an
Obviously you'll have to take my
word on this. Speaking of names, I
was about two seconds away from
becoming Mrs. Charles Arthur
