[Quartermain]

KING SOLOMON'S MINES--

LIKE MANY OTHERS, WELL...

I DIDN'T BELIEVE IN THEM.

IN THOSE DAYS, AFRICA WAS A

LAND OF MANY ROMANTIC LEGENDS.

IT HAD A VAST,

UNEXPLORED INTERIOR.

I WAS A HUNTER AND IT WASN'T

UNTIL THE YEAR 1881

THAT I LEARNT THAT THE MINES

WERE A STARK REALITY.

I SAY "WERE" BECAUSE THEY

NOW LIE BURIED UNDER A MILLION

TONS OF ASHES AND LAVA.

AT THE TIME I'M SPEAKING OF,

DIAMONDS HAD BEEN

FOUND IN KIMBERLEY.

MANY ADVENTUROUS SPIRITS

FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD...

YOU'VE STRUCK

LUCKY AGAIN, RED.

YES.

YOU CAN COUNT YOUR

MONEY TOMORROW.

I'LL HAVE 5 POUNDS

ON ACCOUNT TO:

GET DRUNK WITH.

[Laughing]

GET YOUR BACKS TO

THE WALL, THE WHOLE

BOILING LOT OF YOU.

DON'T SHOOT, BOYS.

IT ISN'T A HOLD-UP.

I'M JUST TENDING

MESELF AND THE:

TREASURES OF ARABIE.

CAST AN EYE OVER THAT,

ME BOY, AND SEE WHAT

YOU MAKE OF IT.

WHAT HAVE:

YOU FOUND?

A HOUSE, CARRIAGE

AND PAIR FOR:

ME DAUGHTER:

AND THE LIFE OF:

RILEY HEREAFTER:

AND EVERMORE.

DID YOU EVER:

SEE THE LIKE?

A NICE PIECE OF:

CRYSTAL, O'BRIEN,

BUT NO DIAMOND.

YOU DON'T

MEAN IT?

I'M SORRY,

MISS KATE.

THAT'S BAD LUCK,

PATRICK, BAD LUCK.

BAD LUCK NOTHING.

I WAS ONLY HAVING

A JOKE WITH YOU.

COME ON, GIRL.

[Donkey braying]

TRY AGAIN, PATSY.

DEVIL I WILL.

I SPURN THE DIAMOND

FIELDS UNDER ME SHOES.

IF WE COULD ONLY GET

TO THE COAST, I COULD

GET A JOB TEACHING.

AND WOULD:

YOU LIKE IT?

I WOULD NOT.

[O'Brien]

OF COURSE:

YOU WOULDN'T.

LISTEN, THERE WAS A

MAN IN THE BAR LAS NIGHT FROM THE CONGO.

HE SAYS THERE'S

A FORTUNE IN IVORY.

THERE'S BEEN A FORTUNE

IN EVERYTHING WE'VE TRIED,

BUT IT WASN'T US

WHO FOUND IT.

FROM NOW ON, WE'LL BE DECENT,

RESPECTABLE CITIZENS,

AND WE'RE GOING TO THE COAST

BEFORE I CHANGE ME MIND.

HOW MUCH MONEY HAVE WE?

LESS THAN A POUND

AND ALL OUR TRAPS

ARE IN THE PAWNSHOP.

WHAT'S THAT

YOU HAVE?

FOR YOU, A GIFT I

BOUGHT TO CELEBRATE OUR

MAGNIFICENT DISCOVERY.

A SHAMROCK!

FOR LUCK.

IT DIDN'T

COST A THING.

I KNOW WHAT:

IT COST.

THERE WERE TWO:

IN MULLIGAN'S STORE.

HERE'S THE

OTHER FOR YOU.

KATHY, ME GIRL,

THERE WAS NEVER:

ANYTHING TO BEAT IT.

WITH A BIT OF SHAMROCK

APIECE, THERE'S NOTHING ON

EARTH CAN HOLD US DOWN.

LOOK!

GLORY BE TO GOD,

STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN.

ASK HIM FOR A LIFT

TO THE COAST.

IT'S A 5-WEEK JOURNEY.

IT'S A LOT TO ASK.

AND YOU CALL YOURSELF

AN IRISHMAN?

IT'S A FINE MORNING.

[O'Brien]

IT'S A FINE MORNING.

IS IT?

IT IS.

ARE YOU GOING:

TO THE COAST?

NO, KITSFONTEIN.

WELL, THAT'S ALL

ON THE WAY.

WHOSE WAY?

OURS.

WE WERE WONDERING

IF YOU'D GIVE US A LIFT.

NO.

ME NAME IS KATHLEEN O'BRIEN,

AND THIS IS ME FATHER,

PATRICK O'BRIEN,

BACHELOR OF ARTS,

TRINITY COLLEGE, DUBLIN.

THANK YOU.

BACHELOR OF ARTS AT

TRINITY COLLEGE, DUBLIN!

A DOWN-AND-OUT

FROM THE DIGGINGS, HUH?

WE'RE DOWN

BUT WE'RE NOT OUT.

[Quartermain]

YOU'RE OUT AS FAR AS

MY WAGON'S CONCERNED.

OH! SO YOU DON'T

APPROVE OF US?

I DON'T APPROVE OF TEARING

UP THE FACE OF THE

COUNTRY FOR GREED.

ME DAUGHTER IS:

A GOOD COOK.

I HAVE A GOOD COOK.

ME FATHER'S A

WONDER TO TALK.

YEAH, HE WOULD BE.

[Kathy]

AND HE'S A LOVELY

RIFLE SHOT.

JUST THINK OF THE GAME

HE COULD GET FOR YOU.

[Laughter]

WHAT'S FUNNY

IN THAT?

QUARTERMAIN, BEST

HUNTER IN AFRICA.

THAT ENDS IT.

IT DOES NOT.

MR. QUARTERMAIN,

YOU NEEDN'T TAKE US

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO,

BUT HERE'S SOMETHING

FOR YOU TO THINK ABOUT IN

YOUR PRECIOUS SOLITUDE:

ME FATHER'S OWN SISTER

IS DYING IN KILKENNY

AND IF THEY NEVER MEET

THIS SIDE OF THE GATES,

'TIS YOU THAT WILL

HAVE PREVENTED THEM.

JUMP UP.

[Spiritual singing]
