Say, you get to be a rich man

at working as foreman

in swamp clearing?

Yeah, when the job's finished

in the swamp clearing,

I take my money and

get me a good pair

of fishing ground in bayou.

The work in the swamp,

she is finished now.

What for you say that?

'Cause nobody is

so crazy to work there

and you know why.

No, Achilles,

you tell me why.

On the night when

the moon is so high

in the heaven,

the mummy

and his princess,

they walk.

Crazy, foolish!


Where he is, huh?

Maybe the mummy got him!

The loup-garous,

they don't want no more

diggin' in the swamp.

I go back, pick moss.

But I no work

in the swamp, never.

Me neither.

I no go to the place.

Achilles is right.

This place,

she's-a haunt.

Oh, waste up.

You listen to me, I know

better from all of you.

I been pearl fishin'

for over 30 year.

Long ago, there was a mummy

like you say and he

take a girl in the swamp.

But that was 25 year pas'.

Can't you people get it

through your heads

that the government

is draining that swamp

for your benefit?

For the sanitation and health

of your families?

You know what I mean, Hill.

It's up to you to get

those men back to work.

Mr. Walsh!

We are the ones

that have to understand.

These men are convinced

that the swamps have

got a curse on 'em.

Don't give me any of that

childish business, Hill.

You're the foreman

around here.

Get those men back to work.

Ask him

where Antoine is.

Oui. You think it's

childish business.

Everybody knows the place,

she is haunted.

Antoine, he disappear

Maybe he went to

Tante Berthe's Cafe

and got drunk.

No, he no go to Tante Berthe.

He stay on the job.

Everybody know that

work on the swamp,

he catch hard luck

on his family

and children's children.

Too many people,

they go in the swamp,

they never come out.

That's nonsense

and all of you know it!

When you consider, Mr. Walsh,

the swamp hasn't changed

for hundreds of years, it's...

Then it's a good thing

we started doing something

to remedy matters.

I don't care how you

go about it but get those men

back on the job right away.

That's all.

I'm looking for

a Mr. Walsh.

That's me.
