Lisa (1962) - full transcript

When the end came for World War II, many Jews were spread around the free world and desired to return to Palestine. Lisa Held has been promised to be returned to her native land. Inspector Peter Jongman of the Dutch secret police compassionately makes the arrangements for her to be smuggled into her home land.


CAPTIONING MADE POSSIBLE BY
20th CENTURY FOX

I'M
INSPECTOR JONGMAN,

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS,
AMSTERDAM.

THE GENTLEMAN
YOU SAW WITH ME

IS DETECTIVE SERGEANT
WOLTERS.

WE HAVE NO TICKETS,
BUT I DON'T WANT

THE 2 PEOPLE
IN THE COMPARTMENT

TO KNOW THAT.

CAN YOU GIVE US
TICKETS NOW?

CERTAINLY, INSPECTOR.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

THE HOOK.

Jongman: SERGEANT,
DO ME A FAVOR.

YES, SIR.

SEE THE MAN
IN THE GREEN HAT?

YES, SIR.

THE GIRL WITH HIM,

FIND OUT
IF SHE'S 21.

TRY NOT TO BE
TOO CONSPICUOUS.

DON'T WORRY.

I'LL BLEND INTO
THE BACKGROUND.

IF SHE'S UNDER AGE,

THAT'S OUR ONLY CHANCE
OF STOPPING HIM.

DOES HE CALL THAT
BLENDING INTO THE BACKGROUND?

YOU'RE A BIT JUMPY
TONIGHT, AREN'T YOU?

21! WELL, THAT'S IT.

NOW IT'S UP
TO SCOTLAND YARD.

DO YOU WANT ME
TO CABLE THEM?

[MARCHING STEPS]

[FOGHORN BLOWS]

I'M STICKING
WITH THEM.

TELL THE CHIEF.

AND DON'T FORGET
THAT CABLE

TO SCOTLAND YARD.

[CLINK]

SCOTLAND YARD.

INSPECTOR JONGMAN, SIR.

WELL, PETER?

HOW ARE YOU, JIM?

NEVER BETTER.

IT'S GOOD TO SEE
YOU. SIT DOWN.

WELL, CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR
PROMOTION, SUPERINTENDENT.

OH, THAT.

HOW'S RACHEL?

YOU TWO
MARRIED YET?

RACHEL'S DEAD.

I THOUGHT YOU KNEW.

NO. I HADN'T HEARD.

WELL.
DOWN TO BUSINESS.

HERE'S THE ADDRESS.

THE MAN IS THERE NOW
WITH THE GIRL.

HIS NAME IS THORENS.

HE CARRIES A SWISS PASSPORT,
BUT WE THINK HE WAS A NAZI.

HE'S GOT A BRAND NEW RACKET.

HE PROMISES GIRLS
TO TAKE THEM CHEAPLY

TO THE STATES OR CANADA
TO MARRY SOLDIERS THEY KNEW.

ONLY THEY END UP
IN SOUTH AMERICA.

CAN YOU PROVE
ANY OF THIS?

WE ONLY GOT
ON TO HIM YESTERDAY.

WE'RE HAVING HIM CHECKED
THROUGH INTERPOL.

AND THE GIRL,
LISA HELD?

OUR INFORMATION IS THAT SHE'S
OUT OF A CONCENTRATION CAMP.

21 YEARS OLD.

HER PARENTS WENT
TO THE GAS CHAMBER.

SHE HAS NO FAMILY LEFT.

AND NOW THIS--
THIS WHITE SLAVER'S GOT HER.

DID THORENS GIVE
IMMIGRATION

THIS ADDRESS
OR A FALSE ONE?

THAT ADDRESS.

AND IMMIGRATION
RAISED NO OBJECTION

TO HIS ENTRY
OR THE GIRL'S?

NONE.

I'M AFRAID
WE CAN DO NOTHING

ABOUT IT
AT THIS STAGE.

YOU'VE GOT NOTHING
ON THE MAN

WE MIGHT HAVE MISSED?

WELL, HE'S NOT GOING
TO GET AWAY WITH IT.

JUST WHAT
DO YOU MEAN?

I MEAN, IF THE LAW CAN'T STOP
HIM, THERE ARE OTHER WAYS.

PETER, WE'VE BEEN
FRIENDS,

BUT REMEMBER
ONE THING:

YOU HAVE NO LEGAL
STANDING

AS A POLICE OFFICER
IN THIS COUNTRY.

IF YOU PLAN TO STAY
ON IN LONDON,

YOU MUST COME AND DINE
WITH US TOMORROW.

PHYLLIS WOULD LOVE
TO SEE YOU.

IF YOU DECIDE TO STAY
ON, THAT IS.

I'M STAYING ON, JIM.

[DOORBELL
RINGS]

WELL, INSPECTOR.

I WAS WAITING FOR YOU.

YOU KNOW WHAT
I'M HERE FOR?

UNOFFICIALLY,
OF COURSE.

IF THIS WERE AN OFFICIAL VISIT,
YOU WOULD NOT BE ALONE.

THAT'S CORRECT.

THERE ARE ONLY 2 WAYS
OF STOPPING YOU.

ONE IS TO TAKE
THE GIRL AWAY FROM YOU.

THE OTHER IS
TO KILL YOU.

NOW, WHERE IS SHE?

GONE.

ON HER WAY ELSEWHERE.

THAT'S ALL I'M
GOING TO TELL YOU.

VERY WELL.
YOU'VE MADE YOUR CHOICE.

BUT HOW CRUDE,
INSPECTOR.

YOU'RE NOT A MURDERER,

AND I--I AM
A LEGITIMATE BUSINESSMAN.

YOU'RE A WHITE SLAVER.

OH, COME.

LOOK.

SEE?
I DEAL IN S.S. DAGGERS.

SOUVENIRS FOR BRITISH TOMMIES
AND AMERICAN G.I.s.

YOU'D BE SURPRISED
AT THE PROFITS.

THE DEMAND IS
SO GREAT FOR THEM

THAT THEY HAD TO OPEN UP
A NEW FACTORY

IN GERMANY
TO MANUFACTURE THEM AGAIN.

SHOW ME ONE.

BLOOD AND HONOR.

I REMEMBER WITH PRIDE
WHEN I RECEIVED MY OWN.

A SENSE OF CONSECRATION.

CLEVER.

THAT MAKES IT SELF-DEFENSE.

STUPID OF ME.

WHERE'S THE GIRL?

BUT WHY?
WHAT DOES SHE MATTER?

A LITTLE JEW SLUT
FROM A CON--

SHE MATTERS!

SHE MATTERS!

SHE MATTERS!

MISS HELD?

MISS HELD?

[FOGHORN BLOWS]

[CAR HORN HONKING]

[SOLDIERS SPEAKING GERMAN]

HELP ME!

PETER!

HELP ME!

HELP ME!

HELP ME!

HELP ME!

RACHEL!

DID YOU KILL HIM?

NO.

WHY?

WOULD YOU HAVE DONE IT?

OH!

IF I'D HAD
A GUN.

WHY DID YOU GO WITH THORENS
IN THE FIRST PLACE?

YOU KNEW HE WAS A NAZI?

OH, YES.

I CAN SPOT THEM
ANYWHERE

AND THE POLICE,
TOO.

INSPECTOR JONGMAN,

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS,
AMSTERDAM.

IF YOU DID KNOW
HE WAS A NAZI,

THEN WHY DID YOU
GO WITH HIM?

HE PROMISED TO SMUGGLE
ME INTO PALESTINE.

AND YOU BELIEVED HIM?

NOT ENTIRELY, BUT I
THOUGHT HE MIGHT.

JUST AS A MATTER
OF INTEREST,

WHAT WAS HE PLANNING
TO DO WITH ME?

A KIND OF HOUSE
IN SOUTH AMERICA.

[LAUGHS]

THAT'S VERY FUNNY.

IT'S A PRIVATE JOKE,
I'M AFRAID.

MISS HELD, I'M GOING BACK
TO AMSTERDAM.

THE EARLY BOAT TRAIN LEAVES
IN ABOUT AN HOUR.

AM I UNDER ARREST?

YOU ARE FREE TO DO
AS YOU PLEASE.

YOU WANT ME
TO GO WITH YOU?

ONLY IF YOU WISH TO.

YOU ARE A DUTCH GIRL, ALONE,
IN A STRANGE COUNTRY.

AS A POLICE OFFICER,
I FEEL RESPONSIBLE.

THERE'S NOT MUCH
POINT TO IT,

IS THERE,
INSPECTOR?

THERE'S
NOT MUCH POINT

TO ANYTHING ANYMORE.

COME ALONG, MISS HELD.

[WHISTLE BLOWS]

HERE.

THEY'LL CALL OUR TRAIN
ANY MINUTE NOW.

THANK YOU.

[TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWS]

WHY CAN'T YOU GET
INTO PALESTINE?

HAVEN'T YOU BEEN READING
THE NEWSPAPERS?

THE BRITISH WON'T ADMIT
ANY MORE IMMIGRANTS

UNTIL THE STATE
OF EMERGENCY IS LIFTED.

WHAT WERE YOU PLANNING
TO DO IN PALESTINE?

NURSE IN
A MENTAL HOSPITAL

FOR SURVIVORS
OF THE CAMPS.

TO HELP OTHERS?

AFTER WHAT
YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH?

TO HELP MYSELF.

TO GO TO MY OWN COUNTRY,
TO BE A PART OF IT.

IT'S THE ONLY THING
THAT WOULD GIVE ME

THE FEELING
THAT EVERYTHING

THAT'S HAPPENED TO ME
HAS HAD A POINT.

YOU CALLED ME
A DUTCH GIRL.

THAT'S NOT TRUE ANYMORE,
EITHER.

THE NAZIS TOOK
THAT AWAY, TOO.

FEELING OF BELONGING.

ANYWHERE.

EXCEPT WITH PEOPLE
EXACTLY LIKE ME.

EXCEPT WITH MY OWN KIND.

AND AS...

AS ONE OF THE FEW
WHO SURVIVED THE CAMPS,

SORRY.

I-I DIDN'T MEAN
TO--TO ASK FOR PITY.

IT'S THE LAST
HUMILIATION.

MISS HELD...

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY
IF I OFFERED

TO HELP YOU
GET TO PALESTINE?

I BEG YOUR PARDON.

I'LL GET YOU
TO PALESTINE, MISS HELD.

WHY?

I HAVEN'T ANY MONEY.

I GAVE IT ALL
TO THORENS.

I DON'T WANT ANY MONEY.

THEN WHAT EXACTLY
DO YOU WANT?

TRUST ME, MISS HELD.
JUST THIS ONE TIME.

BELIEVE YOU CAN
TRUST SOMEONE.

HERE IS MY WORD.

I WILL HELP YOU
GET TO PALESTINE.

[WHISTLE BLOWS]

ANAKA?

PETER.

WE MISSED YOU
LAST NIGHT.

OH.

THIS IS MISS HELD.
MY SISTER, ANAKA.

HOW DO YOU DO?

MISS HELD WILL BE
STAYING WITH US

FOR A FEW DAYS.

OF COURSE.
YOU'VE VERY WELCOME.

WHERE'S MOTHER?

IN THE KITCHEN.

I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

I'M SORRY.

I-IT'S JUST YOU REMIND
ME OF SOMEONE.

HAVE YOU RELATIVES
CALLED GERHARDT?

RACHEL GERHARDT?

NO, I HAVE NO RELATIVES.

SHE WAS A FRIEND
OF PETER'S.

AS A MATTER OF FACT,
THEY WERE ENGAGED.

TAKE YOUR COAT OFF,
PLEASE.

I SHALL ASK
FOR A FEW DAYS LEAVE.

FLY HER DOWN TO TANGIER.

AND THAT'S IT.

ISN'T THERE
AN ORGANIZATION

FOR THESE PEOPLE?

YES, BUT PALESTINE
IS SEALED UP TIGHT.

HER ONLY CHANCE IS
TO GET THERE ILLEGALLY

BY BOAT FROM TANGIER.

ILLEGALLY?

AND YOU'RE
A POLICE OFFICER?

A POLICEMAN IS SUPPOSED
TO BE A SERVANT OF JUSTICE.

MOTHER, LEGAL OR NOT,

THIS IS SOMETHING
I HAVE TO DO.

YOU'RE VERY LIKE
YOUR FATHER, PETER.

THERE'S ONE BIG DIFFERENCE.

WHEN THE TEST CAME,
HE DID THE RIGHT THING.

HE JOINED THE UNDERGROUND.

IF I'D DONE THE SAME,

MAYBE RACHEL WOULD
STILL BE ALIVE.

WHERE IS THIS GIRL?

WITH ANAKA.

MOTHER, THIS
IS MISS HELD.

HOW DO YOU DO?

HOW DO YOU DO?

I SHOULD LIKE TO SPEAK
WITH MISS HELD.

ALONE.

VERY WELL,
MOTHER.

ANAKA.

PLEASE SIT DOWN.

THANK YOU.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU KNOWN
MY SON, MISS HELD?

ONLY SINCE LAST NIGHT.

LAST NIGHT?

AND YET YOU'VE
ALREADY BEEN ABLE

TO INFLUENCE HIM TO--

I HAVEN'T TRIED
TO INFLUENCE HIM.

HAVEN'T YOU?

WHY DON'T YOU SAY WHAT
YOU MEAN, MRS. JONGMAN?

ISN'T IT OBVIOUS?

YOU THINK I'M A...

A PROSTITUTE.

AND I'M TAKING ADVANTAGE
OF YOUR SON.

WELL, I'M AFRAID
THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

IS IT?

AFTER SPENDING ONLY
ONE NIGHT TOGETHER--

I TOLD YOU
IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

I WAS IN THE MEDICAL
RESEARCH BLOCK

AT AUSCHWITZ.

PETER.

PETER!

WHAT DID YOU
SAY TO HER?

I'M AFRAID I--

I MISUNDERSTOOD.

SHE'S ONLY JUST LEFT.

MISS HELD...

I HAVE SOME ARRANGEMENTS
TO MAKE BEFORE WE CAN LEAVE.

PLEASE, LET ME GO.

PLEASE LISTEN TO ME.

I PROMISED YOU SOMETHING.

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

WHAT YOUR MOTHER SAID
IS TRUE.

YOU STILL DON'T
BELIEVE ME, DO YOU?

MISS HELD,

I PROMISED TO HELP YOU GET
TO PALESTINE, AND I WILL.

COME ON.

WAIT FOR ME HERE.

I'LL BE BACK
IN A FEW MINUTES.

SIT DOWN, JONGMAN.

HAVE A GOOD TRIP?

YES, SIR.

THE GIRL IS SAFELY
BACK IN AMSTERDAM.

YES, I'M AWARE
OF THAT.

I SHOULD LIKE TO ARRANGE

FOR A WEEK'S LEAVE
OF ABSENCE, SIR.

WHAT FOR?
PRIVATE REASONS.

IT'S A PITY TO INVADE
YOUR PRIVACY, INSPECTOR,

BUT PERHAPS YOU
WOULD CARE TO EXPLAIN

THAT CABLE FROM LONDON.

I DIDN'T KILL HIM, SIR.

I ADMIT THAT I STRUCK HIM,
BUT I DID NOT SHOOT.

OF COURSE, YOU DIDN'T.
HE WASN'T SHOT,

HE WAS STABBED.

YOUR FRIEND
SUPERINTENDENT COBB

HAS BEEN ON THE PHONE
WITH THE DETAILS.

HE WANTS YOU, AND ABOVE
ALL, HE WANTS THAT GIRL.

SHE HAS NOTHING
TO DO WITH IT.

ARE YOU SO SURE OF THAT?

SHE LEFT THE FLAT
BEFORE I DID,

THORENS WAS ALIVE
WHEN I LEFT.

HE'S DEAD NOW.

LISTEN TO ME, JONGMAN,
I AM NOT ACCUSING YOU

OF KILLING THE MAN,

I KNOW YOU BETTER
THAN THAT.

FOR THE MOMENT,
I WILL ACCEPT YOUR WORD

ABOUT THE GIRL, TOO.

BUT WOULDN'T IT
BE BETTER

IF YOU'RE INNOCENT

TO GO BACK OF YOUR
OWN FREE WILL

AND FACE THE MUSIC?

DON'T YOU SEE,
INSPECTOR,

ANYTHING ELSE WOULD BE

A PLAIN CONFESSION
OF GUILT.

BRING THE GIRL HERE,

AND WE'LL ARRANGE
TRANSPORTATION FOR YOU.

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

AN EXPERIENCED POLICE
OFFICER LIKE YOU

GETTING MIXED UP WITH
PEOPLE OF THAT SORT,

THE SCUM AND REFUSE
OF EUROPE.

WELL, INSPECTOR, DID
YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID?

YES, SIR.

RORSON, HE'S JUST
LEFT MY OFFICE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK,
WOLTERS?

I THINK HE'S
TELLING THE TRUTH.

AGREED.

THEN WHY ARE YOU HAVING
HIM FOLLOWED, SIR?

BECAUSE HE THINKS
THE GIRL KILLED THORENS.

AND SO DO I.
COFFEE?

OH, THANK YOU, SIR.

DON'T SPEAK TO ME.
TURN YOUR BACK ON ME.

SOMETHING'S HAPPENED.

DO YOU KNOW
THE BARGEE EXCHANGE

OFF THE DAMRACK?
YES.

MEET ME THERE
IN HALF AN HOUR.

BETTER GET A DESCRIPTION
OF THE GIRL

SO WE CAN PUT IT
ON THE TELETYPE.

YES, SIR.

SHE'S, UH...

5-FOOT-6
OR FIVE-AND-A-HALF.

BROWN HAIR, BLUE EYES.

SHE'S WEARING
AN OLD GRAY CARDIGAN,

GREY BLOUSE,
LISLE STOCKINGS,

BLACK SHOES,

DARK BLUE BERET,

AND A TRENCH COAT.

YOU'RE OBSERVANT,
SERGEANT.

YES, SIR.

Man: YOU CAN'T TAKE ON
A LOAD OF SUGAR BEET

TOMORROW, MAN.

YOUR WIFE'S GOT TO SEE
THE DOCTOR WEDNESDAY

TO TAKE THAT CAST
OFF HER LEG.

I'LL KNOCK IT OFF MYSELF
WITH A HAMMER.

JAN...

GERTRUDE'S
A GOOD WOMAN.

SHE DESERVES BETTER
THAN HAVING YOU

WHACK AWAY AT HER
LEG WITH A HAMMER.

JAN, CAN I HAVE
A WORD IN PRIVATE?

YOU'RE RICH ENOUGH,
JOS.

NOW, LOOK, WHY DON'T
YOU TURN YOUR BARGE

INTO A HOUSEBOAT,
EH?

AND LET HER
PLANT SOME BEETS

FOR A CHANGE.

WELL, PETER, WHAT
CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I HAVE A PROBLEM.

I HAVE TO GET A GIRL
ACROSS THE BORDER...

UNOFFICIALLY.

OH, WELL, HOW DO YOU
PLAN ON CROSSING?

I THOUGHT MAYBE
ON AN X-BARGE

FROM THE UNDERGROUND DAYS.

OH, NO MORE X-BARGES.

YOU POLICE HAVE
SEEN TO THAT.

IF YOU WERE IN MY PLACE,
HOW WOULD YOU GO ABOUT IT?

ON AN X-BARGE.

I THOUGHT YOU JUST SAID
YOU DIDN'T HAVE--

OH, MAYBE I CAN FIND ONE
OR TWO AT A PINCH.

HERE, REMEMBER
THE EBEN HAUSER?

WELL, SHE'S
THE HENDRIKA NOW.

CAPTAIN BRANDT.
HENDRIKA.

LOST HIS WIFE LAST YEAR.

HE'S LOOKING
FOR A DECKHAND.

HE'S CARRYING
SCRAP IRON TO PARIS.

AT LEAST, THAT'S
WHAT'S ON HIS PAPERS.

YOU ANY GOOD
IN THE WATER?

I STARTED OUT
IN HARBOR POLICE.

OF COURSE, I MUST BE
LOSING MY MEMORY.

CAPTAIN BRANDT!
VESSEL HENDRIKA!

CAPTAIN BRANDT!
VESSEL HENDRIKA!

CAPTAIN BRANDT!

WELL, DE KOOI?

WELL, NEIGHBOR, I'VE
SOLVED YOUR PROBLEM.

I GOT YOU A DECKHAND
TO PARIS

AND A WOMAN
TO LOOK AFTER YOU.

NO WOMAN. I'VE ONLY
ONE CABIN FORWARD,

AND I DON'T WANT
ANY HANKY-PANKY.

AHEM. THEY'RE MARRIED.

WORSE. MARRIED COUPLES
TAKE OVER THE BOAT.

WHO THE DEVIL ARE YOU?

OH, HE'S
THE DECKHAND.

PUNY, FANCY CLOTHES,
NOT UP TO THE WORK.

DON'T WANT HIM.

OH, WELL, JUST AS
YOU SAY, NEIGHBOR.

UH, CAPTAIN SCHOL,
VESSEL ADVENTURE!

I WON'T PAY MORE THAN
30 FOR BOTH OF THEM.

NOT A GUILDER MORE.

CAPTAIN SCHOL!
35.

CAPTAIN--
40!

YOU'VE GOT YOURSELF
A CREW, CAPTAIN.

I'M SAILING TODAY
IN ONE HOUR EXACTLY.

WHERE'S YOUR BARGE?

YOU CALL ME "SIR."
YES, SIR.

I'M TIED UP AT THE WEST
BASIN NEAR THE FERRY.

THANKS, JAN.

HE DOESN'T LOOK LIKE
A DECKHAND TO ME.

THE FLOWER STALL
ACROSS THE STREET.

I'LL HAVE SOME
OF THOSE, PLEASE.

HERE YOU ARE, SIR.

THANK YOU.
THANK YOU.

LISTEN CAREFULLY.

MEET ME IN AN HOUR
AT THE WEST BASIN,

THE BARGE HENDRIKA.

HENDRIKA.

IN AN HOUR EXACTLY.

ALL RIGHT.

KEEP A CHECK
ON THE AIRPORTS.

THOUGH I DON'T THINK
HE'S THAT BIG A FOOL.

THE SAME FOR RAILROADS
AND BUSES. IT'S TOO OBVIOUS.

I THINK HE'LL TRY
AND GET OUT BY WATER.

PROBABLY FISHING BOAT
OR BARGE.

WE CAN'T SEARCH EVERY
BARGE IN AMSTERDAM.

JUST FIND OUT IF ANY BARGE
HAS TAKEN ON PASSENGERS

ANSWERING
TO THEIR DESCRIPTION.

ALL RIGHT, GET MOVING.

[WHISTLE BLOWING]

COULD YOU HELP ME,
PLEASE?

I'M LOOKING
FOR THE BARGE HENDRIKA.

HENDRIKA?
WHICH HENDRIKA?

IS THERE MORE THAN ONE?

MORE LIKE A DOZEN.

THERE'S CAPTAIN
VAN DER PAUL'S HENDRIKA...

CAPTAIN OOTHANT'S
HENDRIKA...

CAPTAIN SCHUYLER'S
HENDRIKA...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[DOG BARKING]

[DOG BARKING]

[CHILD CRYING]

Peter: MISS HELD!

MISS HELD!

COME ON!

WE'RE READY
TO CAST OFF.

EVENING.

GOOD EVENING.

MY WIFE LISA.
CAPTAIN BRANDT.

YOUR WIFE, HUH?
CAN SHE COOK?

AN EXCELLENT COOK.
LISA, GET BELOW

AND START GETTING
THE DINNER.

I GIVE THE ORDERS
ON THIS BOAT.

ALL RIGHT. YOU HEARD
WHAT HE SAID. GET BELOW.

[BOAT HORN BLOWING]

WELL, WHAT ARE YOU
STANDING ABOUT FOR?

GET FORWARD
AND CAST OFF.

YES, SIR.

[SOUNDS HORN]

NO SMOKING
ON MY SHIP.

NO SMOKING,
NO DRINKING,

NO LICENTIOUS
BEHAVIOR.

I'M A GOD-FEARING
MAN.

YES, CAPTAIN.

HOW LONG HAVE
YOU 2 BEEN MARRIED?

2 YEARS.

I DON'T BELIEVE
SHE'S YOUR WIFE AT ALL.

IN FACT, MR. DECKHAND,
I DON'T BELIEVE

A SINGLE WORD
YOU'VE TOLD ME.

CAPTAIN...

POLICEMAN, HUH?

WHAT DO YOU WANT
ON MY BARGE?

WHAT WE BARGAINED FOR--
PASSAGE TO PARIS.

I'M ON A SPECIAL MISSION.
THE GIRL'S MY COVER.

THAT COULD BE
A FORGERY.

COULD BE,
BUT IT ISN'T.

WELL, WE CAN STILL
CHECK UP ON YOU.

POLICE HEADQUARTERS
UP AHEAD.

[SOUNDS HORN]

[SOUNDS HORN]

SO, YOU THOUGHT
I WAS GOING

TO TURN YOU IN,
INSPECTOR?

WELL, I WON'T. NOT FOR
THE MOMENT, THAT IS.

BUT IT'S GOING TO
COST YOU, INSPECTOR.

LET'S SAY YOUR FARE
TO PARIS.

200 GILDERS EACH.

WE'RE NOT PAYING
200 GUILDERS, CAPTAIN.

WE'RE NOT PAYING
ONE GUILDER.

AND WHY NOT,
INSPECTOR?

BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT
YOU'RE CARRYING

DOWN THERE
IN THE X-HOLD.

CAN'T YOU SEE
THE TOLL BRIDGE

UP AHEAD?
GET AFT AND PAY HIM.

[BARKING]

COME ON, COBA.
HERE, GIRL.

COME ON.

OUTSIDE.

THE DOG STAYS OUTSIDE.
YOU UNDERSTAND?

YES, CAPTAIN.

[KISSES]
COME ON, GIRL.

MALENDORP.

WE'RE TYING UP HERE
FOR THE NIGHT.

IT'S NOT BAD
DOWN THERE.

I THINK YOU'LL BE
COMFORTABLE ENOUGH

IF YOU LEAVE
THE HATCH OPEN.

I'LL--I'LL SLEEP
ON DECK.

THANK YOU, INSPECTOR.

NOW THAT WE'RE MARRIED,
I THINK YOU'D BETTER

GET USED
TO CALLING ME PETER.

PETER, WHY HAS
EVERYTHING CHANGED?

WHY ARE WE HIDING?

THEY MIGHT TRY
TO STOP US.

AFTER ALL,
IT'S NOT VERY LEGAL,

WHAT WE'RE DOING.

Captain: HEY,
MR. DECKHAND...

[BLOWING
SHIP'S HORN]

HEY, MR. DECKHAND.
MR. DECKHAND, WAKE UP.

HUH?

YOU'D BETTER GO
TO YOUR WIFE.

SHE'S CRYING.
CAN'T YOU HEAR?

I CAN'T HEAR
ANYTHING.

I CAN. I CAN HEAR EVERYTHING
ON BOARD THIS BARGE.

EVERYTHING.

SHE'S BEEN CRYING
ON AND OFF FOR AN HOUR.

TELL HER TO SHUT UP
SO I CAN GET SOME SLEEP.

MISS HELD...

[WHIMPERING]

LISA...

I'M SORRY.

I DIDN'T MEAN
TO BE SUCH A BABY.

IT WAS JUST
A NIGHTMARE.

IT WOKE YOU UP?

I WASN'T SLEEPING.

MY NIGHTMARES COME
WHEN I'M AWAKE.

SO DO MINE.

ARE YOURS
ABOUT RACHEL?

WHAT DO YOU KNOW
ABOUT RACHEL?

YOUR SISTER
MENTIONED HER.

SHE SAID
YOU WERE ENGAGED.

WHY DON'T YOU
TELL ME ABOUT HER?

MIGHT HELP.

WELL, WHEN THE NAZIS CAME,
THEY ASKED US, THE POLICE,

TO STAY ON DUTY
DURING THE OCCUPATION.

SOME OF US DID.
IT WAS ALL WE KNEW.

OUR PROFESSION, OUR CAREER.
CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?

OF COURSE.

MANY TIMES, THE DUTCH
POLICE HELPED US.

I THOUGHT MAYBE THE NAZIS
WOULD LEAVE RACHEL ALONE

BECAUSE OF ME--A POLICEMAN
THEY MORE OR LESS TRUSTED.

THEY DID.

THEY DID
LEAVE HER ALONE...

UNTIL JUST BEFORE
THE BRITISH CAME TO AMSTERDAM.

THEN, THEY TOOK HER AWAY.

I DON'T KNOW WHY
THEY DID IT JUST THEN,

WHEN THEY KNEW
THEY WERE BEATEN.

WHEN I ARRIVED, THEY WERE JUST
LOADING HER ONTO A TRUCK.

I DID NOTHING.

I JUST STOOD THERE.

I DIDN'T EVEN ANSWER
WHEN SHE CALLED TO ME.

I LET THEM TAKE HER.
I DID NOTHING!

[SLAP]

[CRYING]

GOOD NIGHT,
HENDRIKA.

WHERE'S YOUR HUSBAND?

I THOUGHT YOU SENT HIM
ASHORE TO BUY SUPPLIES.

WELL, HE SHOULD
BE BACK BY NOW.

I WANT TO GET THROUGH
THE NEXT LOCK BEFORE DARK.

HEY...

WHY DO YOU WEAR
THOSE SILLY SHOES?

THEY'RE NO GOOD
ON A BARGE.

THEY'RE THE ONLY
ONES I HAVE.

I'M GOING TO LOOK FOR
THAT FOOL HUSBAND OF YOURS

MISS HELD...

YES?

WANT A DRINK?

NO.

YOU SURE?
GIVES YOU COURAGE.

EASY COURAGE AT
A GUILDER A SHOT.

WHERE DID YOU
GET THIS?

FROM SERGEANT WOLTERS.

WOLTERS HERE?

HE CAME
TO THE BARGE.

WHERE IS HE NOW?

HE SAID HE WAS GOING
BACK TO AMSTERDAM.

YOU KNOW WHAT HE DID
COMING HERE?

THE CHANCE HE TOOK?

30 YEARS ON THE FORCE
ALL GONE UP IN SMOKE,

IF EVER THEY FOUND OUT.

WHY DIDN'T YOU
TELL ME, PETER?

YOU THOUGHT
I KILLED THORENS?

I TOLD YOU
THE TRUTH.

I WOULD'VE KILLED HIM.
I HAD NO OPPORTUNITY.

OF COURSE,
WE HAVE TO GO BACK.

I PROMISED THE SERGEANT
WE WOULD.

DO YOU KNOW
WHAT IT WILL MEAN

IF WE GO BACK?
WE'LL BE ARRESTED.

EXTRADITED TO ENGLAND,
LOCKED UP.

I KNOW.

IT MIGHT TAKE YOU WEEKS
TO PROVE YOUR INNOCENCE--

MAYBE MONTHS.
YOU MAY NEVER PROVE IT.

YOU MAY BE INTERNED.
YOU MAY GO TO PRISON.

YOU MAY NEVER GET
ANOTHER CHANCE

TO GO TO PALESTINE.

I KNOW!
I'M READY.

[GLASS BREAKS]

ARE YOU?

I CAN'T--

I CAN'T SAVE MYSELF
AT YOUR EXPENSE.

I CAN'T LET YOU WRECK

YOUR WHOLE CAREER
FOR MY SAKE.

IT'S NOT FOR YOUR SAKE--
FOR MINE.

THAT'S WHAT I WAS TRYING
TO TELL YOU LAST NIGHT.

LOOK, YOU KNOW WHERE
YOU HAVE TO GO--

WHERE YOUR WHOLE LIFE
DEPENDS ON YOUR GOING.

YOUR ROAD TO PALESTINE
IS MY ROAD...

TO WHERE I HAVE TO GO.

GET FORWARD
AND CAST OFF!

WHAT DO YOU THINK
THIS IS--

FRAU VON BARBERSHOEK'S
BACK YARD?

GET THE WASHING
OFF THAT LINE.

WAIT A MINUTE.

HERE. PUT THESE ON.

DON'T WANT YOU
SLIPPING

AND STUMBLING
ALL OVER THE BARGE.

THANK YOU.

OH, DON'T THANK ME.
I'M GOING TO TAKE

THE PRICE OF THEM
OFF YOUR WAGES.

[KISSES]
COME ON, COBA.

COME ON, COBA.
[KISSES]

COME ON.
COME ON.

COME ON, COBA.

COME ON.

WHAT DO YOU THINK
YOU'RE DOING?

I'M LETTING COBA IN.

WELL, YOU CAN'T.
I TOLD YOU BEFORE,

SHE STAYS OUTSIDE!

[GROWLS]

NOW, DON'T BE SILLY.
NOBODY BELIEVES THAT.

Lisa: WILL YOU TAKE
COBA, PETER?

ALL RIGHT.
I'VE GOT HER.

THERE, YOU SEE?

SHE ISN'T HAPPY INSIDE.
SHE FEELS COOPED UP.

SHE JUST CAN'T
BELIEVE IT.

GIVE HER TIME.

I KNOW EXACTLY
HOW SHE FEELS.

WHAT ABOUT
MY SUPPER?

IT'S ALL READY.

WHO TOLD YOU TO PUT OUT
THE GOOD PLATES?

WHERE DID THOSE FLOWERS
COME FROM?

PETER AND I PICKED THEM
BACK AT THE LAST LOCK.

I KNEW THIS
WOULD HAPPEN.

WOMEN ALWAYS DO IT!

DO WHAT?

TAKE OVER THE SHIP.

"AND WHEN THEY AROSE,
EARLY ON THE MORROW MORNING,

"BEHOLD, DAGON WAS FALLEN
UPON HIS FACE

TO THE GROUND BEFORE
THE ARK OF THE LORD."

[CLEARS THROAT]

"AND THE HEAD OF DAGON,

"AND BOTH THE PALMS
OF HIS HANDS

"WERE CUT OFF
UPON THE THRESHOLD.

ONLY THE STUMP OF DAGON
WAS LEFT TO HIM."

AMEN.

CAPTAIN BRANDT,

SHH.

FOR WHAT WE ARE
ABOUT TO RECEIVE,

OH, LORD, MAKE US
TRULY THANKFUL.

BLESS OUR MOORINGS
THIS NIGHT,

AND PROTECT US

FROM THIEVES, WASH,
AND THE WEATHER. AMEN.

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

SERGEANT GRONINGER,
MOOSENDAHL POLICE.

ANYTHING WRONG?

NOTHING WRONG, CAPTAIN.
THIS GENTLEMAN

IS FROM THE BUREAU
OF AGRICULTURE.

THIS IS
A QUARANTINED DISTRICT.

ARE YOU CARRYING

ANY GRAIN OR VEGETABLES?

JUST SCRAP IRON
FOR PARIS.

RIGHT, CAPTAIN.
SORRY TO DISTURB YOU.

GOOD APPETITE.

LOST YOUR APPETITE,
INSPECTOR?

[ALL LAUGHING]

GOOD NIGHT, LISA.

GOOD NIGHT.

OUTSIDE.

COBA...

OUTSIDE.

YOU, COBA, OUT!

I SAID...

I SUPPOSE YOU'LL BE
WANTING TO SLEEP INSIDE, TOO.

I THOUGHT MAYBE
IN THE WHEELHOUSE.

THAT'S WHAT THAT WOMAN
HAS DONE TO THE SHIP.

NO DISCIPLINE.

YOU CAN TAKE
THE SPARE BUNK IN MY CABIN.

THANKS, CAPTAIN.

BUT ONLY FOR
THIS ONE NIGHT, REMEMBER.

[DISTANT BARKING]

[COBA BARKING]

[SOUNDING HORN]

GO FORWARD
AND KEEP A LOOKOUT.

[SHIP'S HORN BLOWS]

[COBA BARKING]

[BARKING]

COBA, PLEASE
BE QUIET.

YOU'RE MAKING
MY HEAD ACHE.

OH, LEAVE HER ALONE.
SHE'S NAVIGATING.

LISTEN, ANOTHER DOG,
ANOTHER BARGE.

IF IT WEREN'T
FOR THE DOGS,

THERE'D BE A COLLISION
EVERY MINUTE.

WE SHOULD REACH
THE BORDER TOMORROW.

HOW WILL WE
GET THROUGH?

WON'T THEY WANT
TO SEE OUR PAPERS?

DON'T WORRY.
WE'LL MANAGE.

I-I'LL BE SORRY WHEN
WE LEAVE THE BARGE.

I WISH IT COULD
JUST GO ON AND ON.

CAPTAIN BRANDT,
COBA, YOU.

IT'S LIKE
A FAIRY TALE.

AND AT THE END,
ANOTHER FAIRY TALE--

PALESTINE.

OH, NO.

THAT'S REAL.

PALESTINE--

STATE OF ISRAEL.

IT'S REAL.

I'VE SEEN IT.

YOU'VE SEEN IT?

IT'S SOMETHING
YOU WON'T BELIEVE.

SOMETIMES, I DON'T
BELIEVE IT, MYSELF.

IT WAS THE LAST WEEK
OF THE WAR.

WE WERE HERDED OUT
OF THE DEATH CAMP.

EVERYONE KNEW
LIBERATION WAS NEAR.

NO ONE BELIEVED
WE'D MAKE IT.

ALL OF A SUDDEN,

THE NAZI GUARDS
DISAPPEARED--

JUST VANISHED.

NONE OF US
EVEN SAW THEM GO.

I-I RAN INTO THE TREES.

I HEARD THE SOUND
OF A HEAVY ENGINE.

A RATTLING,
LIKE A BIG WAGON.

I HID BEHIND A TREE.

I-I KNEW WHAT IT WAS,
OF COURSE--A TANK.

AND THEN I SAW IT.

I WAS CRAZY WITH PANIC.

I TRIED TO JUMP UP
AND RUN AWAY,

BUT I COULDN'T.

I COULDN'T EVEN
LOOK AWAY.

THEN IT VEERED OFF,

AND I SAW PAINTED
ON ITS SIDE

A HUGE STAR OF DAVID.

LATER, I FOUND OUT

IT WAS THE ONLY ISRAELI
TANK IN THE ALLIED ARMY.

THERE WAS JUST ONE,
AND I SAW IT.

I'VE BEEN RUNNING AFTER
THAT TANK EVER SINCE.

NOW, THANKS TO YOU,
MAYBE...

MAYB--

[COBA BARKING]

[GRUNTS]

HMM.

FINISHED IT?

NO.

BUT AT LEAST THEY
LYNCHED THAT HORSE THIEF.

THOUGHT FOR A WHILE THERE
THE VARMINT WOULD GET AWAY.

EARLY START TOMORROW.

MUST CROSS THE BORDER
BEFORE DARK.

AFTER WE CROSS...

DO YOU PLAN TO STAY ABOARD,

OR MAKE OFF BY YOURSELVES?

WE SIGNED ON
FOR PARIS, SO...

WE WON'T BE IN
PARIS FOR WEEKS.

ON THE OTHER HAND,

YOU COULD FLY TO TANGIER
FROM BRUSSELS...

BE THERE IN A DAY OR 2.

YOU REALLY DO
HEAR EVERYTHING

ON BOARD THIS SHIP,
DON'T YOU, CAPTAIN?

YOU ALSO KNOW HOW
WE PLAN TO CROSS?

NATURALLY.

THAT IS WHY YOU CHOSE
TO INFLICT YOURSELF ON MY BARGE.

WHO'S YOUR CONTACT
IN TANGIER?

WE HAVE NONE.

AH.

IF YOUR AIM IS TO GET
THAT GIRL INTO PALESTINE,

YOU'VE GOT TO USE YOUR BRAINS
AS WELL AS YOUR GUTS.

I KNOW A MAN THERE
WHO MIGHT HELP YOU.

A DUTCHMAN,
KLAUS VAN DER PINK.

HE USED TO SKIPPER
A BARGE OUT OF ROTTERDAM.

THE POLICE WERE AFTER HIM,
SO HE RAN OFF TO NORTH AFRICA.

HE'S A SMUGGLER THERE NOW
IN A BIG WAY...

INCLUDING IMMIGRANTS
INTO PALESTINE.

WE, UH...

CORRESPOND
OCCASIONALLY. AHEM.

YOU'D BETTER GET
IN TOUCH WITH HIM.

THE HOTEL TARZAN. HERE.

WRITE IT DOWN.

AND DON'T BE MISLED
BY HIS EXTERIOR.

VAN DER PINK
MAY LOOK MEAN,

AND HE IS MEAN.

NO HEART OF GOLD INSIDE.

BUT HE MAY JUST
HELP YOU IF YOU...

PAY HIM ENOUGH MONEY.

TELL HIM I SENT YOU.

I'M VERY GRATEFUL TO
YOU, CAPTAIN BRANDT.

YOU AND THIS WIFE OF YOURS...

ARE YOU THINKING
OF MARRYING HER SOMEDAY?

NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER
FROM MY THOUGHTS.

YOU MEAN HER THOUGHTS,
DON'T YOU?

ANYWAY, IF YOU DO
FIND YOURSELF

AT A LOOSE END AFTERWARD,

GET IN TOUCH WITH ME THROUGH
OLD DE KOOI AT THE EXCHANGE.

I NEED A PARTNER,

AND YOU SEEM LESS
USELESS THAN MOST.

YOU EVEN HAVE A FEW BRAINS.

LOOK HOW YOU CHEATED ME
OUT OF MY 400 GUILDERS.

BY THE WAY...

HOW DID YOU KNOW WHAT I WAS
CARRYING IN THE X-HOLD?

I DIDN'T.

Brandt:
IT'S TIME.

YOU'D BETTER GET BELOW.

CALL ME
WHEN YOU'RE READY.

WHAT'S DOWN THERE?

CAPTAIN BRANDT'S OTHER CARGO.
FURS FOR PARIS.

THIS WAS WHAT THEY CALLED AN
X-BARGE DURING THE RESISTANCE.

I WON'T GO IN THERE.

NOT AGAIN.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
NOT AGAIN?

THEY HAD A BOX LIKE
THAT AT THE CAMP.

A PUNISHMENT BOX
THEY USED--

LISA, DON'T LOSE
YOUR NERVE NOW!

WHO ARE YOU TO TELL ME--

[SCREAMING]

[SCREAMS]

[SOBBING]

ARE YOU READY?
WE'RE NEARLY THERE.

[LISA SOBBING]
READY!

LISA.

[COBA WHIMPERING]

COME UP FORWARD WITH ME.

ALL RIGHT. TIE UP.

WE WERE INFORMED YOU WERE
CARRYING A MARRIED COUPLE.

A DECKHAND AND A COOK.

WHERE ARE THEY?

OH, THOSE TWO.

[COBA WHIMPERS]

THE DEVIL MUST
HAVE SENT THEM.

LISTEN...

I TELL YOU NEIGHBOR,
I WAS SHOCKED.

SHOCKED!

SO I THREW THEM BOTH OFF
THE SHIP AT MALENDORP.

AND GOOD RIDDANCE.

[COBA WHIMPERING]

WHAT'S THE MATTER
WITH THAT DOG?

OH, RATS.

RATS. I FUMIGATE
EVERY TRIP,

BUT THEY COME BACK.

[WHISPERING]
Coba, outside!

NOTHING UP
FORWARD, SIR.

NOTHING IN
THE CARGO HOLD.

[WHIMPERING]

TAKE A GOOD LOOK
AT THIS MAN, INSPECTOR.

I THOUGHT I'D SEEN
HIS UGLY MUG BEFORE.

HIERONYMOUS BRANDT,

ARRESTED 3 TIMES
FOR SMUGGLING.

I HAVE LIVED A BLAMELESS
LIFE, INSPECTOR.

BESIDES, THEY COULDN'T
PROVE ANYTHING.

NOW, IF YOU'VE
QUITE FINISHED,

I'D BE GRATEFUL

IF YOU'D GET YOUR UGLY
MUG OFF MY SHIP.

I HAVEN'T STARTED
WITH YOU YET, BRANDT.

STOP IT,
WE'RE WASTING TIME.

THE PEOPLE WE WANT
ARE PROBABLY AT MALENDORP.

YOURS?

[SCREAMS]

[TRAP DOOR OPENS]

ALL RIGHT.
YOU CAN COME UP NOW.

I'M SORRY.

I'M SORRY.

LISTEN. LISTEN.

GOOD LUCK, INSPECTOR.

GOOD LUCK, YOU STUPID--

[HORN BLOWS]

[HONK]

[BLOWING HORN]

[MUSLIM PRAYER CALLING]

[PRAYER CALL CONTINUES]

[PRAYER CALL CONTINUES]

THE FAITHFUL ARE BEING
CALLED TO PRAYERS

BY ELECTRICAL TRANSCRIPTION.

CHEERS!

NOT THAT I'M AN ATHEIST.

FAR FROM IT.

GOD EXISTS ALL RIGHT.

HE'S EVERYWHERE,
WATCHING AND LISTENING.

BUT DON'T BE
TRICKED INTO THINKING

YOU CAN MAKE
A DEAL WITH HIM.

HMPH. FOR HE HAS
NO HEART, NO PITY,

NO WEAKNESS.

NOTHING...

HUMAN AT ALL.

EXCEPT SOME TRAITS
THAT MAKE ME THINK

HE JUST POSSIBLY MIGHT BE...

A DUTCHMAN.

OH, THAT'S FOR THE BATS.

EVERY NIGHT, THEY COME
SWARMING IN HERE,

AND I SERVE THEM
RIGHT BACK INTO HEAVEN.

DRINK?

NO, THANK YOU. NO.

HEH HEH HEH.

AHEM, AHEM, AHEM.

TELL ME, INSPECTOR...

WHAT PUT THIS CRAZY NOTION
INTO YOUR HEAD

OF SMUGGLING THIS GIRL
INTO PALESTINE?

WHAT'S YOUR SECRET?

I HAVE NO SECRET.

MMM. HA!

[REFRIGERATOR RATTLING]

[RATTLING STOPS]

PERHAPS I CAN'T MAKE
A DEAL WITH GOD,

BUT I WAS TOLD I COULD
MAKE ONE WITH YOU.

HA HA HA HA.

YOU'RE ALL THE SAME.

CRUSADERS, DESPERADOS,

DO-GOODERS, RAPISTS,
COLLABORATORS, AND...

CHRISTIANS.

HMPH.

YOU ALL HAVE
ONE THING IN COMMON,

A SECRET, A GUILTY SECRET.

THE WORM IN THE APPLE.

WHAT'S YOURS, INSPECTOR?

ADVENTURE? REMORSE?

LOVE?

WHAT'S YOUR PRICE,
CAPTAIN VAN DER PINK?

HA!

AH...

NOW YOU'VE HIT ON
THE ETERNAL TRUTH.

EVERY MAN HAS HIS PRICE.

TAKE, FOR INSTANCE,
MY CAPTAIN AYOOB.

HE'S AN ARAB.

EVERY TIME HE TAKES
A CARGO INTO PALESTINE,

HE BEATS HIS BREAST BECAUSE
HE'S BETRAYING HIS OWN PEOPLE.

HE'S SOLD HIS SOUL
TO THE DEVIL--

THAT'S ME--

HEH.

AND HIS PRICE IS EXORBITANT.

THEN THERE'S
CAPTAIN NACHTGEIST,

A POLISH JEW,

WHO SAILS HIS LAUNCH

AS IF HE WERE LOHENGRIN
ASTRIDE HIS SWAN.

AS HE WORKS FOR NOTHING,

THE ONE BALANCES AGAINST
THE OTHER IN MY BOOKS.

AH...

EVERYTHING BALANCES.

ONE MAN THINKS
HE'S A CRIMINAL,

THE OTHER A SAINT.

YET THEY BOTH DO
EXACTLY THE SAME WORK.

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT?

OH...

5,000 AMERICAN DOLLARS,

OR THE EQUIVALENT
IN GUILDERS, FRANCS, PESETAS,

WHATEVER YOU HAVE.

IN ADVANCE.

CHEERS.

I CAN'T PAY THAT MUCH.

OF COURSE NOT.

BUT WE MIGHT,
AS YOU SAY, MAKE A DEAL.

WHAT KIND OF DEAL?

YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH BOATS.

I AM SHORT OF SKIPPERS.

YOU GO ON THIS TRIP
TO TAKE THE GIRL IN...

IT'LL BE A TRIAL RUN FOR YOU,

AND IT'LL PROVE THAT
I KEEP MY BARGAIN.

THEN I'LL GIVE YOU
A BOAT OF YOUR OWN

AND YOU WORK FOR ME
FOR ONE YEAR, WITHOUT PAY.

SLAVE LABOR.

HEH. NO, NO, NOT AT ALL.

THERE'D BE BONUSES,

AND YOU'LL HAVE PLENTY OF
OPPORTUNITY TO STEAL FROM ME.

ALL MY CAPTAINS DO.

SOMEONE WATCHING
THIS HOUSE.

THERE USUALLY IS.

ARAB OR EUROPEAN?

EUROPEAN, I THINK.

NOT THAT IT MATTERS.

WELL, INSPECTOR?

THAT'S MY ONLY CHOICE?

$5,000,

OR WORK ON ONE OF YOUR
SMUGGLING BOATS FOR A YEAR.

WITHOUT PAY.

YOU COULD ALWAYS
TRY MY COMPETITION.

WHO'S THAT?

THE AMERICANS.

THEY MAKE A BIG BUSINESS

OF RUNNING IMMIGRANTS
INTO PALESTINE.

A BUSINESS BASED ON
MONEY AND REMORSE.

THE AMERICANS HAVE
PLENTY OF BOTH.

THEY KEEP AN AGENT
HERE. MR. BROWNE.

THERE'S A SHOP
IN THE MEDINA,

IN THE OLD QUARTER.

MR. BROWNE
SELLS WATCHES,

AND THE BRITISH
WATCH MR. BROWNE.

I BELIEVE ONE ASKS
FOR A 14-JEWEL GAMMA.

IS THAT A PASSWORD?

THE AMERICANS HAVE A
NICE SENSE OF MELODRAMA.

WHY SHOULD YOU TELL ME THIS?

IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT MY
FAVORITE MERCHANDISE.

WHEN YOU PACK A HUNDRED
OR SO OF THEM

INTO A SMALL LAUNCH...

AH, NO, NO.

GUNS ARE CLEANER
AND MORE PROFITABLE.

IS THAT HOW YOU THINK
OF THESE PEOPLE?

AS MERCHANDISE?

AH! AH!

OUT--OUT OF MY WAY.

HERE THEY COME!

AAH!

15-LOVE!

AAH!

30-LOVE!

AH!

30-15!

DEUCE!

AH!

AH! HA!

ADVANTAGE VAN DER PINK!

HA!

[GRUMBLES]

YOUR SERVE!

HA HA!

AH!

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

SPLENDID EXAMPLE OF THE
HORSESHOE ARCH, ISN'T IT?

I'M ABSOLUTELY POTTY
ABOUT MOORISH ARCHITECTURE.

AT HOME ONE GETS SO BORED

WITH BRICK
AND RED TILE, ACTUALLY.

YOU'RE NOT
ENGLISH, ARE YOU?

UH, GERMAN? BELGIAN?

DUTCH.

EXTREMELY BUSY.

OH, I'M SO SORRY!
AM I KEEPING YOU?

YES, YOU DUTCHMEN
ARE ALWAYS ON THE GO.

ALWAYS BUSY WITH
THE GOOD WORKS, EH?

WE MUST HAVE
ANOTHER CHAT SOMETIME.

COME IN.

DON'T YOU LIKE IT?

I THINK IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

[LAUGHS]

AND SO ARE YOU.

HERE.

WHAT'S THIS?

YOUR CHANGE.

WHEN IT CAME
RIGHT DOWN TO IT,

I COULDN'T BUY
MORE THAN ONE DRESS.

BUT I WANTED YOU
TO SPEND THAT ON YOURSELF.

NO, NO, NO, PLEASE. IT--

IT SEEMS THAT
ALL I EVER GIVE YOU

IS SOMETHING THAT WAS
YOURS TO BEGIN WITH.

I'M ALWAYS
TAKING FROM YOU,

GIVING NOTHING
IN RETURN.

I TOLD YOU AT THE BEGINNING
I DIDN'T ASK FOR PAYMENT.

I STILL DON'T.

YOU HAVE GIVEN ME
A GREAT DEAL, LISA.

JUST TO SEE YOU LIKE THIS...

EAGER, RADIANT...

YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH
YOU HAVE CHANGED, BELIEVE ME.

THERE'S ONE MORE THING.

YOU ALSO KNOW, OF COURSE,

THAT I'VE FALLEN
IN LOVE WITH YOU.

DON'T, PETER.

I'M TRYING TO BE
OBJECTIVE ABOUT IT.

YOU STILL DESPISE ME
A LITTLE, DON'T YOU?

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

I THINK YOU ARE
A WONDERFUL MAN.

EVERYTHING
YOU'VE DONE FOR ME...

THE KIND OF PERSON
YOU ARE.

BUT YOU DON'T LOVE ME?

DON'T MAKE ME
ANSWER THAT.

PLEASE DON'T.

IT'S NOT WHAT
YOU THINK IT IS.

IT'S NOT THAT AT ALL.

TELL ME ONE THING, LISA.

IS THERE ANY HOPE FOR ME?

NO.

NO HOPE.

AS SOON AS I'VE CHANGED,
WE'LL HAVE DINNER...

AND I'LL TELL YOU
ABOUT VAN DER PINK.

[DOOR OPENS]

[DOOR CLOSES]

[CHUCKLES]

WELL, WE DO SEEM TO BE
FALLING OVER EACH OTHER,

DON'T WE?

DO YOU MIND
IF I JOIN YOU?

MY NAME IS DICKENS.

ROGER, NOT CHARLES.

HOW DO YOU DO?

EVERYONE MAKES
THAT MISTAKE.

MISS HELD.

HOW DO YOU DO?

SHE'S A LOVELY ONE...

ISN'T SHE?

WELL, I MEAN, SHE'S, UM...

CONSTRUCTED,
IF YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN.

MR. DICKENS IS A STUDENT
OF MOORISH ARCHITECTURE.

AT LEAST HE WAS
EARLIER THIS EVENING.

DO I DETECT A NOTE OF IRONY,
INSPECTOR JONGMAN?

[APPLAUSE]

JOLLY GOOD!
[LAUGHS]

WHO ARE YOU?

OH, NO ONE VERY IMPORTANT,
ACTUALLY, SIR.

NO, I'VE BEEN WAITING
FOR YOU TO TURN UP

AT, UH,
CAPTAIN VAN DER PINK'S...

OR MR. BROWNE'S.

YOU CAN'T TOUCH
MISS HELD IN TANGIER.

THERE'S NO EXTRADITION.

OH, MY INTEREST IN MISS HELD
IS QUITE NEGATIVE--

MERELY THAT SHE DOESN'T
GO TO PALESTINE.

OH, DO YOU MEAN ABOUT
THAT LONDON BUSINESS?

OH, I CAN ASSURE YOU
THAT SCOTLAND YARD

HAS QUITE FORGOTTEN
ABOUT MISS HELD.

HAVE THEY?

OH, QUITE.

NO, I'M NOT
A POLICEMAN, SIR,

BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT...

SHE WAS SEEN COMING
DOWN THE FIRE ESCAPE

BEFORE YOU LEFT
THE APARTMENT.

OH, NO, INSPECTOR,
MISS HELD DIDN'T KILL THORENS.

YOU DID.

WHAT?

DO YOU MEAN TO SAY
THAT ALL THIS TIME

EACH OF YOU HAS
GONE ON THINKING

THAT THE OTHER ONE DID IT?

HEH HEH.
HOW EXTRAORDINARY.

OH, NO, IT WAS YOU,
INSPECTOR.

WELL, INADVERTENTLY,
OF COURSE.

YOUR FINGERPRINTS DID NOT
APPEAR ON THE KNIFE.

NO, THE POLICE THEORY
IS THAT, UH,

THORENS FELL ON THE KNIFE...

WHEN YOU STRUCK HIM.

WHAT ARE THE CHARGES
AGAINST ME?

UH, MANSLAUGHTER.

MIND YOU, SIR,
CONSIDERING THE SITUATION,

AND, UH...WELL,
THE NATURE OF YOUR VICTIM,

WELL...

ANY BRITISH COURT WOULD BE
INCLINED TO LENIENCY.

BUT IF YOU PERSIST
IN RUNNING AWAY, WELL...

DOES LOOK BAD,
DOESN'T IT...

SIR?

ADVISING ME
TO GIVE MYSELF UP?

WELL, IT'S REALLY
NONE OF MY BUSINESS.

WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS,
MR. DICKENS?

WELL, I'VE BEEN
DETAILED TO, UH...

REPORT ON ALL YOUR MOVEMENTS.

REPORT WHERE?

NAVAL HEADQUARTERS
AT GIBRALTAR.

I'M SORRY.

WHY ARE YOU
TELLING US THIS?

TO SAVE YOU A GREAT DEAL
OF TROUBLE AND EXPENSE.

IF YOU DO SUCCEED IN GETTING
MISS HELD ONTO A BOAT,

SHE'LL BE FOLLOWED ACROSS
THE MEDITERRANEAN AND PICKED UP

THE MOMENT SHE ENTERS
PALESTINE WATERS.

DON'T TRY IT,
INSPECTOR.

FOR YOUR OWN SAKE,
DON'T TRY IT.

YOU HAVEN'T A CHANCE.

I'M SORRY, MISS HELD.

SO IT'S ALL OVER.

IT'S ONLY BEGUN.

THE BOATS GET THROUGH
ALL THE TIME.

THAT'S THE OLDEST
POLICE TRICK IN THE WORLD.

MR. DICKENS WANTS TO SAVE
HIMSELF TROUBLE AND EXPENSE

BY SCARING US
OUT OF TRYING.

ARE YOU SCARED, LISA?

NOT IF YOU'RE NOT.

GOOD. TOMORROW
WE'LL SEE MR. BROWNE.

[PEOPLE SHOUTING AND
CHATTERING ON STREET]

[GOAT BLEATS]

UH...

MR. BROWNE HERE?

YES?

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I'D, UH...

I'D LIKE TO SEE
A 14-JEWEL GAMMA.

OK...

I THINK I HAVE
ONE OR 2 I CAN SHOW YOU.

THIS WAY, PLEASE.

ANY LIVING RELATIVES?

NO.

MR. JONGMAN IS--

HE IS A FRIEND.

I WON'T BE
GOING WITH HER.

I SEE.

OK.

I THINK WE CAN HELP YOU.

NOW, THERE IS
ONE OTHER THING.

A MEDICAL CHECKUP.
I'LL GIVE YOU A--

CHECKUP?

WHY?

A GREAT MANY PEOPLE
CAME OUT OF THE CAMPS

WITH T.B.,
CARDIAC DISEASE...

THE VOYAGE MAY BE RUGGED,

AND SOMETIMES THERE'S
TROUBLE ON THE BEACHES.

WE PREFER HEALTHY IMMIGRANTS.

IT'S JUST AROUND
THE CORNER HERE.

THE NAME IS
DR. MITROPOULOS.

[TEARS PAPER]

IF YOU'LL GIVE HIM THIS.

WILL YOU GO OUT
THE BACK WAY?

I'LL BE ALONG
IN A FEW MINUTES.

[CHICKENS CLUCKING]

[PEOPLE CHATTERING AND SHOUTING]

LISA?

IS THIS IT?

THIS IS AS FAR AS WE GO.

I'M NOT GOING TO LET YOU
SEE THE DOCTOR

IF IT UPSETS YOU.

ISN'T IT THEIR
CONDITION?

THEIR CONDITION,
NOT MINE.

I'LL GET YOU TO PALESTINE
WITHOUT THE AMERICANS.

YOU MEAN VAN DER PINK?

YOU'D DO
EVEN THAT FOR ME?

COME ON.

NO, NO.
I CAN'T LET YOU, PETER.

I'M ALL RIGHT.

REALLY. I'M READY.

Lisa, screaming:
NO! NO, I CAN'T!

[SCREAMING]

Mitropoulos:
I CANNOT HELP YOU

UNLESS YOU TELL ME.

NO!

OH, IT'S TOO HUMILIATING.

YOU ARE A GIRL
OF SPIRIT.

YOU MUST KNOW THAT PEOPLE
CAN NOT BE HUMILIATED.

THEY CAN ONLY
HUMILIATE THEMSELVES.

NOW, PLEASE,
PLEASE, MISS HELD.

[GASPS]
PLEASE.

THIS HAPPENED AT THE MEDICAL
RESEARCH BLOCK AT AUSCHWITZ?

[SIGHS]

[WHISPERING]
Yes.

[SIGHS]

I WAS ASSIGNED THERE...

IN 1944.

THEY USED US FOR ANATOMY
LESSONS, LIKE CADAVERS.

GO ON, PLEASE.

I'LL NEVER
FORGET THAT DAY.

EVERY SINGLE THING
THAT HAPPENED.

IT WAS SNOWING
WHEN THEY BROUGHT ME

ACROSS THE COMPOUND.

BIG FLAKES.

EVERYTHING WAS
A WHIRL OF WHITE.

THEY GAVE ME AN
INJECTION IN THE BACK.

I WAS CONSCIOUS
THE WHOLE TIME.

I COULD SEE THEM, AND...

AND MYSELF...

REFLECTED IN THE MIRROR
OF THE SURGICAL LAMP.

THE FACES...

THE YOUNG FACES OF
THE MEDICAL STUDENTS...

THE THEATER WAS FULL.

THERE WERE
A THOUSAND EYES,

ALL STARING DOWN.

THE S.S. DOCTORS
OPERATED.

THEY WORE
RUBBER GLOVES...

TOUCHED ME...

THERE WERE--
THERE WERE WOMEN.

NURSES.

DRESSED IN WHITE
FOR CHARITY.

THE DOCTORS LECTURED
AS THEY WORKED.

THEIR VOICES
WERE COLD...

MATTER OF FACT...

NOT CRUEL. I--

I DIDN'T MATTER,
YOU SEE. I...

I WAS JUST
A PART OF THE LESSON.

A GUINEA PIG.

I WANT--I WANTED
TO TELL THEM SOMETHING,

BUT I...COULDN'T
GET MY MOUTH OPEN.

I...

I TRIED TO TELL THEM...

WE ARE PEOPLE.

WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS!

GOOD MORNING,
MR. BROWNE.

Browne: GOOD MORNING.

IS SHE STILL IN THERE?

YES. IT'S BEEN MORE
THAN AN HOUR NOW.

HERE.

THANK YOU.

BETTER?

I HAVE LIVED WITH THIS
FOR A LONG TIME.

IT HELPED TO TALK
ABOUT IT.

I'M LUCKY, I SUPPOSE.

SOME OF THE GIRLS--
THEY DID SKIN GRAFTS.

DR. MITROPOULOS,

COULD YOU TELL ME
THE TRUTH ABOUT MYSELF?

I'M NOT AFRAID TO KNOW.

NOT NOW.

WELL, THE SURGICAL PROCEDURES
WERE APPARENTLY EXPERT.

WHETHER THERE HAS BEEN
ANY PERMANENT DAMAGE,

THAT'S DIFFICULT TO SAY.

I HAVE NOT THE FACILITIES HERE
FOR A THOROUGH EXAMINATION.

MENTALLY...

YOU THINK MY MIND
HAS BEEN AFFECTED?

THERE ARE BOUND TO BE
SOME SCARS THERE, TOO.

MISS HELD,
I WANT YOU TO TELL ME,

HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO HAVE
RELATIONS WITH A MAN?

HAVE YOU WANTED TO?

WHAT WOULD BE
THE POINT IN WANTING

IF I COULD NEVER BE
A REAL WIFE TO ANY MAN.

GIVE HIM CHILDREN.

BUT THIS WE DO NOT KNOW.

IS THERE SOMEONE
YOU WOULD LIKE TO MARRY?

THE MAN WHO BROUGHT YOU HERE?

I ONLY WANT TO GO
TO PALESTINE.

YOU HAVE NOT ANSWERED
MY QUESTION.

THERE IS NO ANSWER.

I WAS FOOLISH EVER
TO THINK THERE COULD BE.

THEN YOU HAVE CONSIDERED IT?

HAS HE MADE ANY ADVANCES?

I HAVE NEVER
LET HIM TOUCH ME.

I NEVER HAVE,
AND I NEVER WILL.

PLEASE, DOCTOR.
THAT'S ENOUGH.

I'M SORRY.

I THINK, MISS HELD,
YOU'D BETTER GET DRESSED.

Mitropoulos:
IT'S AMAZING.

I NEVER THOUGHT
I WOULD SEE

ONE OF THEM ALIVE.

BUT, APART
FROM ALL THIS,

SHE IS
IN PERFECT HEALTH.

THERE IS NO REASON

WHY WE SHOULD NOT
SEND HER

ON TO PALESTINE.

NO.

NOT PALESTINE, DOCTOR.

NUREMBERG.

NUREMBERG?

SEND HER BACK
TO GERMANY?

WHAT FOR?

TO BE A WITNESS, OF COURSE,
IN THE WAR CRIMES TRIALS.

WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING
FOR SOMEONE LIKE HER.

A SURVIVOR OF THE MEDICAL
RESEARCH PROGRAM.

SHE'S A WEAPON,
I TELL YOU--

MR. BROWNE,
I CAN UNDERSTAND

HOW YOU, AS A JEW,
FEEL ABOUT THIS--

AS IT HAPPENS,
INSPECTOR,

I'M A PRACTICING METHODIST
FROM KANSAS CITY.

VERY WELL.
BUT THE GIRL HERSELF

WANTS TO GO
TO PALESTINE.

WHAT GOOD CAN SHE DO
HER PEOPLE IN PALESTINE?

ANOTHER NURSE?

ANOTHER UNTRAINED HAND
ON A COLLECTIVE FARM?

BUT AT NUREMBERG, SHE CAN BE
OF UNIQUE SERVICE TO US.

DO YOU REALIZE WHAT
THE PROSECUTION CAN DO WITH HER?

THE EVIDENCE.

THE VISUAL, CLINICAL EVIDENCE.

I CAN IMAGINE
WHAT IT WOULD DO

TO WHAT'S LEFT
OF HER PRIVACY,

HER DIGNITY.

THAT DOESN'T MATTER.

SHE WOULD BE THE FIRST
TO TELL YOU THAT.

NOW, LISTEN TO ME, SIR.

YOU ARE A POLICEMAN.

NOW, WOULD YOU LET
A MURDERER GO FREE

IN ORDER TO SPARE THE
FEELINGS OF A WITNESS?

EVEN A POLICEMAN
BELIEVES IN MERCY.

GOD'S OWN MERCY.

ISN'T THAT GOOD
METHODIST DOCTRINE?

YOU HEARD WHAT HE SAID?

YES. I HEARD HIM.

DO I UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY,
MR. BROWNE,

YOU REFUSE TO SEND HER
TO PALESTINE?

THAT IS CORRECT.

I'LL SEND HER
TO NUREMBERG.

IF SHE AGREES,
OF COURSE.

THE DECISION,
AFTER ALL, IS HERS.

I'D LIKE TO
THINK IT OVER.

SHALL WE GO,
PETER?

I'LL LET YOU KNOW
TONIGHT, MR. BROWNE.

THANK YOU AGAIN, DOCTOR.

ARE YOU CELEBRATING
SOMETHING?

OH! CELEBRATE WITH ME.

UM, MANISH, PLEASE.

ALL YOUR TROUBLES ARE
OVER, MR. DICKENS.

YOU CAN CALL OFF
YOUR DOGS.

SHE'S GOING
TO NUREMBERG

TO BE A WITNESS
AT THE TRIALS.

A LIVE EXHIBIT.

AH, YES. NUREMBERG.

WELL, TAKING EVERYTHING
INTO CONSIDERATION,

IT'S A WISE DECISION.

IT'S MORE THAN WISE.
IT'S HISTORICAL.

HISTORY PROVES IT,
DOESN'T IT?

PROVES WHAT?

VENGEANCE IS BETTER
THAN MERCY.

HATE IS STRONGER
THAN LOVE.

WELL, THERE'S ROOM
IN THE WORLD FOR HATE, TOO.

I WAS WITH THE FIRST
ALLIED TROOPS INTO AUSCHWITZ.

COME ON, SIR.

YOU'D BETTER GO TO BED
AND SLEEP IT OFF.

MAY I SEE YOU HOME?

THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.

SUDDENLY,
VERY SLEEPY.

WELL, I'LL SLEEP
WELL TONIGHT.

NO PROBLEMS
OF CONSCIENCE.

[CRASH]

[DOOR SLAMMING]

THEY HAVE JUST CALLED
THE FLIGHT.

INSPECTOR!

HERE'S YOUR TICKET,
MISS HELD.

THERE'LL BE SOMEBODY
FROM THE WAR CRIMES COMMISSION

TO MEET YOU IN NUREMBERG.

YOU'LL BE IN GOOD HANDS.

AND I CONGRATULATE YOU
ON YOUR DECISION.

YOU'VE DONE THE RIGHT THING.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH,
MR. BROWNE.

IN SPITE OF MY CHIEF,

I KNOW WHAT
THAT CHILD NEEDS.

IT IS NOT TO GO
TO NUREMBERG.

WHAT ARE YOU
TRYING TO SAY?

SHE'S IN LOVE WITH YOU,
FOR ONE THING.

IT IS PERFECTLY OBVIOUS.

THAT IS WHY SHE'S
RUNNING AWAY.

LISA!

TELL ME ONE THING, LISA.

AND TELL ME THE TRUTH.

DO YOU STILL WANT TO GO
TO PALESTINE?

YES.

YES!

YES!

AH, HA!

GAME, SET, AND MATCH.

NOW THEN, UH,

THE--THE MADRE DOLOROSA
IS A BIT SLOW,

BUT CAPTAIN AYOOB'S
THE BEST.

HE'LL GET YOU THERE
IF ANYONE WILL.

WILL WE BE CARRYING
ANY CARGO?

OH, K-RATIONS. SOMETHING
HARMLESS OF THAT SORT.

IT'LL BE A TRIAL RUN FOR YOU
AS MY NEWEST RECRUIT.

I WOULDN'T CARE TO RISK
A REALLY VALUABLE CARGO,

ESPECIALLY WITH A MAN
I'M NOT PAYING.

CHEERS.

THEN THERE'S DICKENS
AND THE BRITISH NAVY.

YES. I'VE GIVEN THAT
SOME THOUGHT, TOO.

THEY'LL LET YOU THROUGH,
ALL RIGHT,

PROVIDED THEY'RE CONVINCED

YOU'RE NOT TAKING
SOMETHING INTO PALESTINE,

BUT BRINGING SOMETHING OUT.

Peter:
WHAT, FOR INSTANCE?

WE COULD MAKE
MR. DICKENS BELIEVE

I'M USING THE GIRL AS A DECOY

TO BRING HAGANAH LEADERS
OUT OF PALESTINE

FOR A SECRET CONFERENCE.

HE KNOWS WE'VE DONE IT BEFORE.

EXCEPT DICKENS MAY NOT
BELIEVE YOU THIS TIME.

I DON'T EXPECT HIM TO,
BUT HE'LL BELIEVE YOU.

YOU HAVE A PRICELESS ASSET,
INSPECTOR.

A TRANSPARENT SINCERITY.

THANK YOU.

NOT AT ALL.

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO GET
IN TOUCH WITH MR. DICKENS?

IS THAT ALL?

YES.

EXCEPT FOR THE SMALL MATTER
OF OUR CONTRACT.

NOW, LET ME SEE.

WHERE DID I PUT IT?

AH! HERE IT IS.

JUST SIGN BOTH COPIES.

YOU CALL THIS A BINDING
LEGAL DOCUMENT?

SPOKEN LIKE A DUTCHMAN.

WHAT YOU REALLY MEAN IS,

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN
IF YOU WALKED OUT ON ME?

WELL, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN?

YOU'D BE SHOT.

CHEERS.

[SWING MUSIC PLAYING]

SO, IT'S
THE MADRE DOLOROSA

AT 16:05 TOMORROW?

NEWS TRAVELS FAST
IN TANGIER.

WELL, I'M SORRY.

IT'S THE ONLY BOAT
VAN DER PINK HAS IN PORT

AND THE TIDE TABLES
ARE PUBLIC PROPERTY.

DRINK?

WELL, YOU SHOULD HAVE
A PLEASANT TRIP, INSPECTOR.

UNTIL YOU REACH
PALESTINE WATERS.

WAITER.

TWO WHISKEYS, PLEASE.

Peter: THERE'S NO APPEAL
I CAN MAKE TO YOU?

NO. I'M AFRAID NOT, SIR.
I'M SORRY.

I'VE ALREADY REPORTED
TO GIBRALTAR.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN
WHEN THEY STOP US?

THE GIRL WILL BE SENT
TO A CAMP IN CYPRUS.

ANOTHER CAMP.

WELL, HARDLY
THE SAME THING, SIR.

BUT, UM, YES. A CAMP.

AND YOU, I'M AFRAID,
WILL BE HELD FOR EXTRADITION.

I'M SORRY.

PLEASE, STOP SAYING
YOU'RE SORRY.

YOU ENGLISH ARE ALWAYS
SAYING YOU'RE SORRY.

OH, I'M SORRY.

LOOK. I'M ONLY
INTERESTED IN THE GIRL.

I'VE FOUND OUT
THE REAL REASON

WHY VAN DER PINK'S
WILLING TO SEND A BOAT

WITH A SINGLE IMMIGRANT

AND A CARGO
OF K-RATIONS.

YES. I WONDERED ABOUT THAT.

WE'RE TO BRING 3 MEN
OUT OF PALESTINE--

HAGANAH LEADERS,
IMPORTANT ONES--

FOR A CONFERENCE.

HOW DID YOU LEARN THIS?

IS IT WORTH IT TO YOU
TO LET US THROUGH?

[LAUGHS]

OLD VAN DER PINK
MUST BE LOSING HIS TOUCH.

IS THAT THE BEST
HE COULD THINK OF?

NO, NO. IT WON'T WASH,
INSPECTOR.

IF I WERE TO SEND THAT
ON TO GIBRALTAR,

THEY'D THINK I'D GONE
CLEAN OFF MY NUT.

I DON'T ASK YOU
TO ACCEPT HIS WORD,

WOULD YOU
ACCEPT MINE?

FOR WHAT?

MY PROMISE THAT IT WOULD
BE WORTH YOUR WHILE

TO WAIT FOR THAT BOAT TO
COME OUT OF PALESTINE.

EXPLAIN YOURSELF.

[ARABIAN ACCENT]
THE PILLARS OF HERCULES.

[LAUGHS] YES.

THE ANCIENT GREEKS THOUGHT
HERCULES PUSH MOUNTAINS APART

TO LET SEA COME THROUGH.

FOOLISH, PERHAPS,
BUT, WHO KNOWS?

WHO KNOWS?

THE PHOENICIANS
COME THIS WAY,

SAIL SOUTH AROUND AFRICA,
NORTH TO ENGLAND.

VERY BRAVE PEOPLES.

THEN COME ROMANS, MOORS,
CRUSADERS, ARABS.

ALL VERY BRAVE PEOPLES.

NOT AFRAID.

NOW, YOU COME.

VERY BRAVE PEOPLES.

NOT AFRAID.

NOW, IF LADY FORGIVE,

YOU WANT ME TO SHOW YOU
YOUR DUTY, YES?

OF COURSE,
CAPTAIN AYOOB.

CABIN FOR LADY HERE.

THANK YOU.

DON'T MENTION.
MOST HONORED.

I TAKE OVER WATCH NOW.

I'VE ONLY BEEN ON AN HOUR.

BETTER I TAKE.

CURRENTS VERY TRICKY
HERE IN STRAITS.

GOOD NIGHT.

SLEEP WELL.

IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE
WE'VE COME SO FAR.

SOON WE'LL BE SAYING
GOOD-BYE.

DO YOU WANT TO, PETER?

SAY GOOD-BYE?
NO.

I HOPED, MAYBE,

YOU MIGHT WANT TO STAY
ON IN PALESTINE.

YOU MEAN VAN DER PINK?

I SIGNED A CONTRACT,
LISA.

I WON'T TRY
TO THANK YOU AGAIN.

I HAVE MADE A TERRIBLE
MESS OF YOUR LIFE.

YOU DON'T REALLY
BELIEVE THAT.

DIDN'T YOU HEAR
CAPTAIN AYOOB?

HE SAW SOMETHING IN US
THAT WASN'T THERE BEFORE,

AT LEAST NOT IN ME.

"NOT AFRAID," HE SAID.
AND I'M NOT.

NOT AFRAID OF MY THOUGHTS,
OR MY PAST,

OR MY CONSCIENCE.

WA-AFF IN MAICKINIA.

PETER?

SOMETHING'S HAPPENED.
WE'VE STOPPED.

K-RATIONS,
CAPTAIN AYOOB?

VAN DER PINK GAVE ME
HIS WORD.

GENTLY, GENTLY...

NO LOADED, BUT I
NO LIKE GUNS IN BELLY.

HE'S RUNNING GUNS ON
MY WORD TO THE BRITISH

THAT WE'D CARRY
NO CONTRABAND.

CAPTAIN VAN DER PINK
IS BUSINESSMAN, NO?

YOU MAKE DEAL
WITH HIM, YES?

NOW HE'S BROKEN IT.
THERE'S NONO DEAL NOW.

AH, HE THOUGHT
YOU SAY THAT.

HE GIVE ME LETTER
FOR YOU.

HERE.

"I APOLOGIZE, INSPECTOR,
BUT BUSINESS IS BUSINESS,

"AND I AM FIRST OF ALL
A DUTCHMAN.

"I HAVE TORN UP
OUR CONTRACT.

"BOTH COPIES.

CHEERS. VAN DER PINK."

WELL, NOW WE KNOW.

IT WAS ALL A TRICK
TO GET THOSE GUNS ONBOARD.

IS IT SO TERRIBLE
AFTER ALL?

HE'S TORN UP
THE CONTRACT.

YOU'RE FREE. OH, PETER!

LISA!

COME ON UP.

I THOUGHT YOU'D
LIKE TO SEE IT.

I JUST GOT A GLIMPSE
OF LAND.

PALESTINE?

THE PLAN IS TO CROSS
THE 3-MILE LIMIT

AT NIGHT AND LAND AT DAWN.

THE HAGANAH WILL MEET US
ON THE BEACH.

WHAT'S THE MATTER?

INSPECTOR!
INSPECTOR!

WHO ARE THEY?

GUN RUNNERS
FROM NORTH AFRICA.

VAN DER PINK LOSE MANY
CARGOES TO THEM.

TAKE WHEEL, PLEASE.

LADY, BE SO KIND
AS TO GO BELOW.

MARMUT! MARMUT!
MARMUT!

Man, bullhorn:
OIGA, MADRE DOLOROSA!

OIGA, MADRE DOLOROSA!

GO BELOW, LISA.

I'M STAYING WITH YOU.

WE'RE LUCKY TOGETHER,
PETER.

STAY DOWN.

WE'RE GONNA
NEED OUR LUCK.

OIGA, MADRE DOLOROSA!

PETER!

LISA...

WHEN DO WE LAND?

DAWN. ONE HOUR.
SHE'S BETTER?

WORSE. I'M AFRAID
THE BULLET TOUCHED A LUNG.

SHE'S IN THE HANDS
OF HER GOD.

THAT PATROL BOAT
STILL THERE?

I SEE HER LIGHT
JUST NOW.

SHE MAKE TALK WITH SOME
OTHER BRITISH SHIP.

THEY'LL HAVE A DOCTOR,
AT LEAST A SICK BAY.

WE CARRY GUNS.
DUMP THEM.

WE HAVE NO CHOICE, AYOOB.
WE'RE GOING BACK.

I'M GONNA SEND
A DISTRESS SIGNAL.

DO NOT FEAR.

SHE WILL LIVE UNTIL SHE
REACH THE LAND OF HER GOD.

HE WAIT FOR HER...

THERE ON THE BEACH.

AHMED. IFTA.

WELL, WE ARRIVE.

HOPE YOU'RE NOT
ANGRY WITH ME.

SHE DEAD?
SHE ALIVE.

SHE ASK FOR YOU.

LISA...

I KNOW...WE'RE THERE.

MEN FROM THE HAGANAH
ARE BOARDING US NOW.

I'LL ASK THEM
IF THEY CAN GET YOU

TO A DOCTOR RIGHT AWAY.

PETER...

VERY WELL.

YOU SHALL ARRIVE IN STYLE.

ARE YOU IN COMMAND?

CAPTAIN BERGER.

IS THERE A DOCTOR
WITH YOU?

THERE'S A GIRL ABOARD
WHO'S VERY BADLY HURT.

WE'LL DO THE BEST
WE CAN, SIR.

SEE IF YOU CAN RAISE
DR. KLEIN.

Man: MERCURY,
THIS IS JAWBONE CALLING.

MERCURY, THIS IS
JAWBONE CALLING.

ARE YOU RECEIVING ME,
MERCURY?

SHE'LL BE VERY
HAPPY TO SEE YOU.

SHE'S COME
A LONG WAY FOR THIS.

LISA, THIS IS
CAPTAIN BERGER.

TRANSFER OF CARGO
COMPLETE, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

LET'S GO.

WILL YOU BRING
HER THINGS, PLEASE?

Capt. Berger: IN THE BOATS,
EVERYBODY. IN THE BOATS.

NO...

I'LL COME ASHORE
WITH YOU.

Man: I'M RECEIVING YOU,
MERCURY. OVER.

GO AHEAD, MERCURY.
OVER.

ROGER, MERCURY.
MAKE IT FAST.

I'VE RAISED
DR. KLEIN, SIR.

HE'S MEETING US
AT THE FARMHOUSE.

[TANK APPROACHING]

LISA.

LOOK.

GET HER TO THAT DOCTOR!

AND HURRY!

DO NOT BE SAD.

ONE GIRLFRIEND
STILL WITH US.

HA HA HA! HOW
FOOLISH THEY ARE.

THEY THINK
WE ARE BRINGING

SOMEONE THEY WANT
OUT OF PALESTINE.

WE ARE.

ME.
