(FEMALE #1) LET'S GET BACK TO THE LUNCH.

DON'T YOU THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF A MEAL

IS THE WINE?

EVERYTHING MUST FOLLOW THE WINE.

AND IN THIS CASE,

I COULD FAVOR A RED BORDEAUX.

A RED BORDEAUX AT LUNCH? HMM.

YOUR LATE HUSBAND WOULD NEVER HAVE APPROVED.

WILLIAM, STAY AWAY FROM THE EDGE.

THE EDGE IS NO PLACE TO PLAY.

YES, MA'AM.

Man's voiceover: SECRETARY OF STATE

TO THE PRESIDENT.

I REGRET TO INFORM YOU

THAT I HAVE RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING DISPATCH

FROM SAMUEL GUMMERE,

UNITED STATES GENERAL COUNCIL, TANGIER, MOROCCO.

ON OCTOBER 15,

MRS. EDEN PEDECARIS AND HER CHILDREN WERE KIDNAPPED

FROM THEIR RESIDENCE IN TANGIER

AFTER THE BRUTAL MURDER OF HER SERVANTS AND A GUEST,

SIR JOSHUA KENYAN SMITH, A BRITISH SUBJECT.

THIS ACT OF BARBAROUS CRIMINALITY

APPEARS PERPETRATED

BY MULAI AL-RAISULI, SHERIF OF THE RIFFIAN BERBERS

AND THE LAST OF THE BARBARY PIRATES.

THE BRITISH MINISTER AND MYSELF CONCUR

THERE EXISTS ALARMING PROSPECTS OF DANGER

FOR ALL FOREIGNERS IN MOROCCO.

REQUEST WARSHIPS.

GENTLEMEN, THE PRESIDENCY WAS NEVER WON

BY A VICE-PRESIDENT FILLING OUT HIS FALLEN PREDECESSOR'S

TERM OF OFFICE.

NOW, THAT MAY NOT OBTAIN IN THIS INSTANCE--

THE ONLY THING THE PEOPLE WILL REMEMBER

ABOUT McKINLEY IS HE HAD THE GOOD SENSE

TO GET HIMSELF SHOT.

TEDDY'S THE MOST POPULAR PRESIDENT SINCE WASHINGTON.

WHY DRAG IN WASHINGTON?

[CHUCKLES]

AH, YOU KNOW IT AND I KNOW IT,

BUT THAT DAMN COWBOY DOESN'T KNOW IT.

WHAT HE WANTS IS SOME ISSUE TO HANG HIS CAMPAIGN ON,

SOMETHING TO AROUSE THE POPULOUS.

CAVALRY CHARGE?

SO TO SPEAK.

MOROCCO?

YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO

WE CAN'T HAVE ERRANT DESPERADOES

RUNNING AROUND KIDNAPPING AMERICAN CITIZENS!

IF I HAD MY WAY, I'D GO IN THERE

WITH A COUPLE OF WINCHESTERS, BATTALION OF MARINES,

BUT, I CAN'T DO THAT, CAN I?

NO.

HAS THIS RASPULI...

RAISULI.

RASPULI. RAISULI. WHATEVER. HAS HE MADE ANY TERMS?

NOPE.

HMM.

GOOD. THAT GIVES US AN EXCUSE.

HE WILL, THOUGH.

WHAT MAKES YOU SO SURE?

HE KIDNAPPED A BRITISH COUNSEL ONCE,

BUT THEY BECAME FRIENDS AND HE SENT HIM BACK.

HE SPAT ON THE BLOOD MONEY.

YES. THERE'VE BEEN OTHERS, THOUGH.

SPANISH AND FRENCH EMISSARIES.

SEND THEM BACK, TOO?

PARTS OF THEM.

PARTS OF THEM?

OBVIOUSLY HE HAS... NO RESPECT

FOR HUMAN LIFE!

THREATENING THE LIVES AND PROPERTY OF AMERICAN CITIZENS.

IT'S AN INSULT IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD COMMUNITY,

YOU REALIZE THAT.

ARABIAN THIEF HOLDING ME UP LIKE A COMMON DESPERADO.

THEODORE, YOU'RE ON TO SOMETHING.

I DON'T QUITE KNOW WHAT...

BUT, UM... WHAT IS IT

THAT YOU WANT, THEODORE?

WHAT DO I WANT? I WANT RESPECT!

THAT'S WHAT. RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE AND AMERICAN PROPERTY.

AND I'LL SEND THE ATLANTIC SQUADRON TO MOROCCO

TO GET RESPECT.

THAT'S ILLEGAL.

NOW, WHY SPOIL THE BEAUTY OF THE THING

WITH LEGALITY?

WELL...

THE FLEET SAILS TOMORROW.

AMERICA WANTS PEDECARIS ALIVE

OR RAISULI DEAD.

VERY GOOD.

PEDECARIS ALIVE...

OR RAISULI DEAD.

BULL'S EYE!

[LOW CONVERSATION]

AAH!!

AAH!!

[MEN LAUGH]

HORSES!

COME ON NOW. WE GO TO THE HORSES, MADAM.

DON'T TOUCH ME WITH THAT THING!

I'M QUITE CAPABLE OF UNDERSTANDING

YOUR GIBBERISH!

[MEN LAUGHING]

UH!

CAREFUL.

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

JENNIFER.

WILLIAM? WILLIAM!

YOUR HAND, LADY.

OH, GET AWAY FROM ME, FOR GOD'S SAKE, YOU--

[MEN LAUGH]

GET ON THOSE HORSES, JENNIFER.

LET GO OF IT!

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

NOW, I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE

OR WHAT YOU WANT WITH US,

BUT I WILL TELL YOU THAT I AM NO COWARD.

AND IF YOU, OR ANY OF THESE MEN

SHOULD DARE TO LAY A HAND ON ME,

I WILL TRY WITH ALL THE STRENGTH IN ME

TO KILL YOU, AND WITH MY LAST BREATH,

I SHALL CURSE YOU TO GOD!

GOD WILL LISTEN!

DO YOU PLAY CHECKERS?

NO, I PLAY CHESS.

BETTER.

Raisuli: THIS IS THE RIF.

I AM MULAI AHMED MOHAMMED RAISULI, THE MAGNIFICENT.

SHERIF OF THE RIFFIAN BERBERS.

I AM THE TRUE DEFENDER OF THE FAITHFUL,

AND THE BLOOD OF THE PROPHET RUNS IN ME,

AND I AM, BUT A SERVANT OF HIS WILL.

YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY?

IT HAS NEVER BEEN MY INTENTION TO ENCOURAGE BRAGGARTS.

YOUR SHELL IS STRONG LIKE A TURTLE'S.

BUT IT IS BRITTLE.

YOUR TONGUE IS CLEVER AND FAST.

BE CAREFUL YOU DO NOT TRIP OVER IT.

YOU...ARE A GREAT DEAL OF TROUBLE.

NOW, SEE HERE.

I DON'T INTEND TO WASTE ANY MORE TIME

WATCHING YOU EAT.

THIS IS AN EFFRONTERY.

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE...

BIG STICK, BASHAW?

DO NOT THREATEN ME,

MR. GUMMERE.

I'VE BEEN THREATENED BY THE FRENCH..

[FOREIGN DIALOG]

...GERMANS,

AND THE ENGLISH.

I'VE BEEN THREATENED BY...EXPERTS,

MR. GUMMERE.

AND YET, MOROCCO'S STILL THE ONLY SOVEREIGN

MOSLEM THRONE WEST OF CONSTANTINOPLE.

YES, BUT IT IS SHAKY.

YES. WE HAVE FRENCH INFANTRY

AND GERMAN CAVALRY.

OUR CURRENCY IS SPANISH,

BUT MY NEPHEW IS THE SOUTH END OF MOROCCO.

AND IT IS AS IT SHALL BE.

WELL, IF--IF YOU--AHEM--

WISH IT TO STAY THAT WAY,

THEN I IMPLORE YOU

TO SEND YOUR FRENCH INFANTRY

AND YOUR GERMAN CAVALRY INTO THE RIF

AND BRING OUR PEO..PLE BACK.

BETTER TO SERVE THE LEOPARD THAN THE FOX.

I AM ONLY SERVANT OF THE SOUTH

AND THE CHOSEN ONE, THE DEFENDER OF THE FAITHFUL.

I CAN MAKE NO SUCH DECISION.

VERY WELL, THEN.

WE SHALL SEEK AN AUDIENCE WITH THE SULTAN HIMSELF.

HE WILL NOT SEE YOU.

UNLESS IT PLEASES HIM.

NOW, LISTEN HERE.

WE REPRESENT A MODERN POWER.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MARINES, BATTLESHIPS, BIG GUNS.

WE ARE NOT FOOLING ABOUT.

RICHARD, WE ARE NOT HERE TO MAKE THREATS.

MERELY, ENTREATIES.

NOW TELL ME, BASHAW,

WHAT WOULD PLEASE THE SULTAN? GOLD?

MORE...BICYCLES?

ANOTHER CARRIAGE?

LIONS?

LIONS WOULD PLEASE THE SULTAN.

LIONS ARE NOBLE.

VERY WELL.

MR. DREIGHTON WILL LEAVE THIS AFTERNOON FOR FEZ

WITH A PAIR OF LIONS.

LIONS.

WE SHALL DRINK FROM MY WELL.

[HORSE WHINNIES]

[PRAYING]

[MEN CHANT]

THANK YOU, WILLIAM. THAT'S RATHER REFRESHING.

HERE, CHILDREN. HAVE SOME OF THESE.

THEY'LL GIVE YOU STRENGTH.

MAMA, WHO DO YOU THINK HE REALLY IS?

IS HE A PIRATE?

HE'S A BRIGAND AND A LOUT. PAY HIM NO SERIOUS MENTION.

WE SHALL SEE THE BETTER SIDE OF THIS,

GOD WILLING.

HE HAS THE WAY ABOUT HIM, DOESN'T HE?

HE SURE HAS...THE WAY.

WOMAN...I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THIS.

I AM NOT A BARBAROUS MAN.

I AM A SCHOLAR

AND A LEADER TO MY PEOPLE.

I AM NOT A BARBAROUS MAN.

THESE 4 MEN HAVE DISHONORED ME.

THEY HAVE EATEN FROM MY TREES.

THEY HAVE DRUNK WATER FROM MY WELLS.

THEY HAVE DONE ALL OF THESE THINGS TO ME

AND THEY HAVE NOT EVEN EVOKED

MY NAME TO GOD IN THANKFULNESS.

I AM TREATED THIS WAY

BECAUSE I MAKE WAR UPON THE EUROPEANS.

YOU SEE THE MAN AT THE WELL,

HOW HE DRAWS THE WATER?

WHEN ONE BUCKET EMPTIES, THE OTHER FILLS.

IT IS SO WITH THE WORLD.

AT PRESENT, YOU ARE FULL OF POWER.

BUT YOU'RE SPILLING IT WASTEFULLY,

AND ISLAM IS LAPPING UP THE DROPS

AS THEY SPILL FROM YOUR BUCKET.

[MAN LAUGHS]

OH!

[MAN SPEAKING IN NATIVE LANGUAGE]

OH, MY--

DID YOU SEE THAT?

[MEN SPEAKING IN NATIVE LANGUAGE]

Battle cry: OOOOHHHHH!

OOOOOHHHH!

AND YOU ARE NOT A BARBAROUS MAN.

THEY HAD BROKEN GOD'S WILL--

YOU MEAN YOUR WILL!

I HAVE NO WILL, ONLY THAT OF GOD.

I HAD TO KILL THE TWO

OR I COULD NOT TRUST THE OTHER TWO.

A BARBAROUS MAN WOULD'VE KILLED THEM ALL.

OF COURSE.

BE NOT SO QUICK TO JUDGE OUR WAYS.

IGNORANCE IS A STEEP HILL WITH PERILOUS ROCKS AT THE BOTTOM.

DO YOU PRAY OFTEN?

I PRAY TO MECCA 5 TIMES A DAY.

IS THAT SO? I WONDER HOW YOU FIND THE TIME.

YOU'RE SO BUSY CUTTING OFF MEN'S HEADS

AND KIDNAPPING WOMEN AND CHILDREN!

IF I MISS THE MORNING PRAYER,

I PRAY TWICE IN THE AFTERNOON.

ALLAH IS VERY UNDERSTANDING.

[BAND MUSIC]

[GUNFIRE]

YOU'RE GONNA BUILD THAT CANAL IN PANAMA, TEDDY?

I'LL DIG IT WITH MY OWN HANDS IF I HAVE TO!

[CHEERING]

Man: REMEMBER THE MAINE!

I REMEMBER IT!

TEDDY, YOU AIN'T GONNA LET 'EM

PUSH US AROUND IN MOROCCO?

MADAME, I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT MOROCCO.

THIS IS A GOOD TIME AS ANY TO SAY IT.

IT IS MY POLICY...

MY POLICY

TO PROTECT AMERICAN CITIZENS

AND AMERICAN INTERESTS

WHENEVER, WHEREVER THEY ARE THREATENED!

AND--AND--AND--

FURTHERMORE...

FURTHERMORE,

I AM NOT A MAN TO STAND BY

AND CONDONE BARBARIC ACTS

WHICH ARE PERPETRATED AGAINST INNOCENT WOMEN AND CHILDREN!

WE SHALL METE OUT JUSTICE THAT IS SWIFT

AND RETRIBUTION THAT IS FINAL!

AMERICA WANTS PEDECARIS ALIVE

OR RAISULI DEAD!

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

[BAND MUSIC]

I WAS GOOD, WASN'T I, JOHN?

A MARVELOUS SPEECH.

I'D EVEN VOTE FOR YOU MYSELF.

HAVE THE TRAIN GO SLOWLY.

I WANT TO LISTEN TO THEM A WHILE.

[CALLING IN NATIVE LANGUAGE]

[FIRING GUNS]

[LAMBS BLEATING]

PLEASE, HERE.

SLEEP BETTER.

IT IS THE WISH OF THE RAISULI.

[SARCASTICALLY] BE SURE AND THANK HIM FOR ME.

YOU WILL SLEEP HERE.

YES.

I WAS TOLD.

GOOD!

[CHUCKLING]

[CHUCKLING]

[WORD IN NATIVE LANGUAGE]

YOU DO NOT WANT TO EAT?

THIS IS NOT A GOOD MOVE.

I CAN TAKE YOUR KNIGHT.

YOU CAN?

YES.

WELL, THE LOSS OF MY KNIGHT

DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL WIN.

THE LION TAKES LONG STRIDES,

BUT THE PATH IS WORN SMOOTH BY PYGMY ARMIES.

YES. AND A FOOL AND HIS MONEY

ARE SOON PARTED.

I'VE CHECKED YOUR QUEEN ALSO.

YOU ARE IN A LOT OF TROUBLE.

YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE MOVED THAT BISHOP

OR KIDNAPPED ME.

BOTH WILL SEE YOU UNDONE.

IT IS NOT I WHO DECIDES THE OUTCOME

OF THESE EVENTS.

IT IS THE WILL OF ALLAH.

I AM BUT AN INSTRUMENT OF THAT WILL.

IT IS THE WIND THAT PASSES,

BUT THE SEA REMAINS.

A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE.

MAKE YOUR MOVE.

EH.

WHAT...DO YOU INTEND TO DO WITH US?

IT IS MY INTENTION TO EMBARRASS

MULAI ABDUL HASIS,

THE SULTAN TO MOROCCO.

THE TRIBESMEN WILL SEE THAT HE IS

THE BOUGHT DOG OF THE EUROPEAN ARMIES,

A SLAVE TO FRENCH AND GERMAN MASTERS.

THE TRIBESMEN WILL JOIN ME IN A JIHAD

TO ABOLISH THIS FOREIGN PESTILENCE.

AND THIS IS YOUR WAY,

ABDUCTING WOMEN AND CHILDREN, KILLING UNARMED SERVANTS?

I PREFER TO FIGHT THE EUROPEAN ARMIES.

BUT THEY DO NOT FIGHT AS MEN.

THEY FIGHT AS DOGS.

MEN PREFER TO FIGHT WITH SWORDS

SO THEY CAN SEE EACH OTHER'S EYES.

SOMETIMES, THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE.

THEN THEY FIGHT WITH RIFLES.

THE EUROPEANS HAVE GUNS THAT FIRE MANY TIMES,

PROMISCUOUSLY, AND REND THE EARTH,

AND THERE IS NO HONOR IN THIS.

NOTHING IS DECIDED FROM THIS.

THEREFORE...

I SHALL TAKE WOMEN AND CHILDREN

WHEN IT PLEASES ME.

WHAT HAVE YOU DEMANDED FOR OUR RETURN?

GOLD...

RIFLES...

THE HEAD OF THE BASHAW

[LAUGHS] IN A BASKET OF MELONS...

THE SOVEREIGNTY OF MY PEOPLE.

THE ENGLISH HAVE PAID VERY WELL IN THE PAST.

WELL, YOU'LL NOT HAVE YOUR WAY WITH THE AMERICANS.

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT WILL HAVE YOUR HEAD FOR THIS.

ROOSEVELT.

THIS...PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT...

HE WOULD TRY AND TAKE IT HIMSELF?

HE CERTAINLY WOULD!

HE IS A MAN OF GRIT AND STRONG MORAL FIBER.

HE DOES NOT KIDNAP WOMEN AND CHILDREN!

WHAT KIND OF RIFLE DOES HE USE?

A WINCHESTER!

WINCHESTER?

WINCHESTER.

[MEN MURMUR]

I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF THIS RIFLE.

YOU WILL.

[GUNFIRE]

[GUNFIRE]

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

RAISULI.

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

[LAUGHING]

SHERIF OF WAZAN.

LORD OF THE DESERT.

THIS IS PEDECARIS.

THE PLEASURE IS MINE.

CHARMED.

THE SHERIF HAS HONORED ME

BY CARRYING MY ENTREATIES TO THE EUROPEANS.

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

WHAT IS THAT?!

THAT...IS A TONGUE.

WELL, WHY WOULD ANYONE

WANT TO CUT OUT A MAN'S TONGUE?

PERHAPS THE PREVIOUS OWNER

HAD NOTHING PLEASANT TO SAY.

[LAUGHING]

I BELIEVE I'M ABOUT TO BE SICK.

MUST BE THE HEAT.

WHAT IS IT?

SOME KIND OF TONGUE.

WHAT KIND?

CHILDREN, GET UP FROM THAT TONGUE! GOOD GOD!

THE REPLY FROM THE AMERICAN BASHAW.

HIMSELF SPEAKING FOR THE LORD OF THE AMERICANS.

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT?

"PEDECARIS ALIVE OR RAISULI DEAD"?

HA HA HA HA!

YOU'RE NOT IN A POSITION TO LAUGH!

[MEN LAUGH]

NO ONE LAUGHS AT THE RAISULI!

GO TO JHINAD.

CUT THE SMALL FINGER FROM A WOMAN.

TAKE IT TO THESE AMERICANS.

TELL THEM IT IS A FINGER

OF THE WOMAN PEDECARIS...

AND THAT THE RAISULI IS A MAN OF PATIENCE

BUT NOT UNENDING.

DOES THIS PEST, THIS ROOSEVELT,

DOES HE HAVE NO RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE?!

YA-HOO!

HEY, WHAT'D YOU BRING IN, COLONEL?

GOT SOME VENISON AND A COUGAR.

HEARD ABOUT THE BEAR?

BIG ONE, I HEARD.

COFFEE, MR. PRESIDENT?

IS, UH, THAT THE BEAR?

YES, THIS IS THE BEAR THAT ATTACKED THE HORSE CAMP AT DAWN.

HE KNEW THAT MEN WOULD BE ASLEEP

OR AT THEIR WORST AT DAWN.

YOU KNOW, HE INJURED ONE OF THE INDIANS QUITE SEVERELY.

KILLED SEVERAL OF THE HORSES, TOO.

DID YOU PARTICIPATE

IN STOPPING THE BEAR, MR. PRESIDENT?

YES, I REGRET TO SAY.

WHY DO YOU REGRET, MR. PRESIDENT?

BECAUSE HE'S A FINE CREATURE.

THIS IS HIS VALLEY.

THIS VALLEY BELONGED TO THE BEAR.

WE'RE THE INTRUDERS HERE.

WE'RE ACCUSTOMED TO WILD ANIMALS TAKING FLIGHT

AT THE SIGHT OF MEN WITH GUNS.

THE AMERICAN GRIZZLY FEARS NOTHING--

NOT MAN, NOT GUNS, NOT DEATH.

DO YOU INTEND TO HAVE THIS BEAR

AS A RUG IN THE WHITE HOUSE, MR. PRESIDENT?

RUG? NO.

NO, I INTEND TO HAVE HIM STUFFED

AND PLACED ON EXHIBIT

AT THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTE.

THE AMERICAN GRIZZLY BEAR

IS A SYMBOL OF THE AMERICAN CHARACTER--

STRENGTH...

INTELLIGENCE, FEROCITY.

A LITTLE BLIND AND RECKLESS AT TIMES.

BUT COURAGEOUS BEYOND ALL DOUBT.

AND ONE OTHER TRAIT THAT GOES WITH ALL PREVIOUS.

AND THAT, MR. PRESIDENT?

LONELINESS.

A BEAR LIVES OUT HIS LIFE ALONE...

INDOMITABLE... UNCONQUERED...

BUT ALWAYS ALONE.

HE HAS NO REAL ALLIES, ONLY ENEMIES,

BUT NONE OF THEM ARE AS GREAT AS HE.

YOU FEEL THIS MIGHT BE AN AMERICAN TRAIT?

CERTAINLY. THE WORLD WILL NEVER LOVE US...

BUT THEY RESPECT US.

THEY MAY EVEN GROW TO FEAR US.

THEY WILL NEVER LOVE US,

FOR WE HAVE TOO MUCH AUDACITY...

AND WE'RE A BIT BLIND AND RECKLESS AT TIMES, TOO.

ARE YOU PERHAPS REFERRING TO THE PANAMA CANAL

AND THE SITUATION IN MOROCCO?

IF YOU SAY SO.

THE AMERICAN GRIZZLY EMBODIES THE SPIRIT OF AMERICA.

HE SHOULD BE OUR SYMBOL.

NOT THAT RIDICULOUS EAGLE.

HE'S NO MORE THAN A DANDIFIED VULTURE.

DANDIFIED.

DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH?

YES, SIRE.

TELL ME... WHY DOESN'T THE SULTAN

BUILD A ROAD TO FEZ?

I HAD TO BRING THESE LIONS BY CAMEL.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT'S LIKE?

NO, SIRE.

IT WASN'T EASY.

THE EASE OF OTHERS

IS NOT THE CONCERN OF THE SULTAN.

WE'LL BUILD A ROAD SOME DAY.

A ROAD, HERE?

HA. FOOLISH.

THE DESERT IS LIKE THE SEA.

YOU CANNOT BUILD A ROAD IN THE SEA.

WE WILL.

WE HAVE MEN THAT CAN DO ANYTHING.

ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING.

WE HAVE MEN THAT CAN FLY.

FLY?

FLY.

JOLLY GOOD, SIR.

ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT.

OVER HERE. OVER HERE.

[CACKLES]

OH, HERE YOU GO. PASS IT ON.

WATCH THE GOAL.

WATCH THE GOAL.

SAY...HAVEN'T I SEEN YOU SOMEWHERE BEFORE?

NEIN.

ARRIBA, ESPANA.

AH! AQUI, AQUI.

AQUI, AQUI.

[CACKLING]

PERHAPS, YOUR HIGHNESS, ABDUL

WOULD CARE TO FIRE THE MACHINE GUN?

HERR SULTAN IS DISPLEASED?

THIS IS BROKEN!

MEND IT!

THE AMBASSADOR OF THE AMERICAN,

YOUR EXULTANCY.

I AM MULI ABDUL HASIS,

SULTAN TO MOROCCO.

IT HAS BEEN SAID

THAT YOU HAVE BROUGHT ME LIONS.

YES, SIR. 2 OF THEM.

IT'S OUT OF BOUNDS.

[WHIP LASHING]

IT WOULD PLEASE ME

TO TAKE THE PLEASURE OF THIS MEETING

IN MY CARRIAGE OF STATE.

YOU WILL COME.

[YELL IN UNISON]

BEAUTIFUL!

IT IS QUITE EXTRAORDINARY.

YOU MAY SIT.

AYAH! AYAH!

[WHIP LASHES]

[CACKLES]

YOU WISH TO DISCUSS THE RAISULI?

YES. HAVE YOU MADE ANY CONTACT WITH HIS PEOPLE?

HE WISHES FOR THE RETURN

OF THE WOMAN PEDECARIS THAT HE BE GRANTED

THE LAND OF THE RIF BY FORMAL DECREE

AND THAT THE BASHAW OF TANGIER'S HEAD

BE PRESENTED IN A GOLDEN JUG.

[CACKLING]

HE DIDN'T ASK FOR MONEY?

YES, BUT THAT IS HONORABLE.

YOU HAVE OFFERED TO PAY IT, I PRESUME?

DO NOT DISTRESS ME BY SUCH A QUESTION.

NOW SEE HERE. WE WILL HAVE

OUR PEOPLE BACK, AND RIGHT QUICK,

OR WE ARE PREPARED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

I WILL NOT ENDURE THIS TREATMENT!

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE BIG STICK, SULTAN?

RIGHT NOW THERE ARE SQUADRONS OF WARSHIPS

IN YOUR COASTAL WATERS.

IN DAYS, THERE WILL BE MARINES,

CAVALRY, AND ARTILLERY TO ENFORCE MY DEMANDS!

NOW MY COUNTRY WANTS THE WOMAN PEDECARIS ALIVE

OR RAISULI DEAD!

YOU CANNOT TALK TO THE DEFENDER

OF THE FAITHFUL IN THIS MANNER!

YOU...DO NOT... UNDERSTAND IT!

IT'S SO DIFFICULT TO BE SULTAN!

YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

WHAT DO YOU KNOW OF THIS...RAISULI?

HE IS A WONDERFUL MAN.

A SERVANT OF GOD.

BUT HE IS A BRIGAND AND A CRIMINAL AS WELL.

HE TAUGHT ME TO SHOOT A RIFLE

WHEN I WAS 5 YEARS OLD!

YOU KNOW HIM?

HE IS MY UNCLE.

BUT THE BASHAW IN TANGIER IS YOUR UNCLE.

THEY ARE BOTH MY UNCLES.

THEY ARE BROTHERS.

IT IS SO DIFFICULT TO BE SULTAN.

YOU FOREIGNERS DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

THESE ARE MY TRUE RICHES.

A MAN'S WORTH IS COUNTED

IN THE NUMBER OF HIS RIFLES.

DOES THIS, UH... ROOSEVELT...

DOES HE HAVE SUCH MEN?

PROBABLY NOT.

WITH SUCH MEN, WHO NEEDS GUNS

THAT FIRE MANY TIMES PROMISCUOUSLY?

MACHINE GUNS?

YES!

WHO NEEDS SUCH GUNS?

WELL, MAYBE I DON'T BELIEVE IT EITHER.

LOOK AT THIS.

WHERE DID YOU GET IT, WILLIAM?

DID YOU STEAL IT?

NO. HE GAVE IT TO ME.

GAYAAN THE TERRIBLE.

HE'S A BRIGAND WHO'S KILLED OVER 30 MEN.

DID HE KILL ANY WITH THAT?

CERTAINLY.

WHAT WILL THEY DO WITH US, WILLIAM?

KEEP US.

TEACH US TO RIDE...

SHOOT...

CUT MEN'S THROATS

AND BE BRIGANDS.

EVEN GIRLS?

YES.

BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO WEAR A VEIL.

HA HA HA HA HA!

FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW

FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW

FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD FEL-LOW

THAT NOBODY CAN DENY

THAT NOBODY CAN DENY

THAT NOBODY CAN DENY

FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW

FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW

FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD FEL-LOW

THAT NOBODY CAN DENY

HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

BLOW OUT THE CANDLES, FATHER!

IT TAKES A BIG WIND. LOTS OF HOT AIR.

THEN I'LL NEED SOME HELP

FROM YOU, MR. HAY.

I PROPOSE A TOAST

TO THE PANAMA CANAL!

YES. AND JUPITER PIERPONT MORGAN.

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

LIKEY KNIFEY?

YOU LIKEY FORKY?

SPLENDID.

AND NOW, MR. PRESIDENT, BLOW.

WELL...

[INHALES]

MAY THE BREATH OF THEODORE ROOSEVELT

BE LIKE THE WIND

THAT HE HAS SENT ACROSS THE PACIFIC,

WIND THAT BENDS THE TREES OF AGGRESSION

AND INJUSTICE,

BUT A TRUE WIND MARKED ALSO FOR ITS WARMTH,

AN AMERICAN WIND.

[APPLAUSE]

YOU LIKEY SPEECHY?

WELL, I SUPPOSE

I SHOULD MAKE THE FIRST CUT HERE.

THERE. NOTHING TO IT.

THERE YOU ARE.

YOU ALL GO ON AND FINISH IT.

NOT HAVING ANY, MR. PRESIDENT?

OH, NO, NO CAKE FOR ME, JOHN...

BIRTHDAY OR NO.

HAVE TO REMAIN FIT AND TRIM,

VIGOROUS AND ACTIVE.

AFTER ALL, THIS RAISULI FELLOW

IS REPUTED TO BE OVER 50

AND STILL A VERY FORMIDABLE BRIGAND.

YOU MAY WELL MAKE

A FORMIDABLE BRIGAND YOURSELF.

YOU MADE A GOOD START IN LIFE,

AND WE ALL HAVE HIGH HOPES FOR YOU...

WHEN YOU GROW UP.

NOW I SHALL HAVE SOME OF YOUR CAKE.

LET THEM EAT CAKE.

THANK YOU.

NOT GOOD FOR YOU, JOHN. NEITHER ARE THOSE CIGARS.

AT MY AGE, I CAN AFFORD IT.

[CHUCKLES]

LET ME SEE THAT.

[GRUNTS] UH.

TAKE A NOTE TO THE WINCHESTER

REPEATING ARMS COMPANY, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT.

DEAR SIRS...

I HAVE RECEIVED MY IMPROVED MODEL

1895 WINCHESTER IN 405 CALIBER.

AS YOU AND I BOTH KNOW,

THIS IS A VERY FINE RIFLE.

HOWEVER,

ONCE AGAIN YOU HAVE BLUNDERED

BOTH IN REGARD TO THE STOCK DIMENSIONS

AND THE RECOIL PAD.

HOW LONG WILL THESE MISTAKES BE REPEATED? EH?

AFTER ALL, I'M THE PRESIDENT

OF THE UNITED STATES.

I SEE NO REASON WHY AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT

CAN'T GET SATISFACTION FROM AN AMERICAN GUN MAKER? EH?

WHAT MUST I DO FOR A PROPER FITTING?

GO TO ENGLAND? I SHOULD HOPE NOT!

NO, SIR.

WHY ARE YOU STANDING LIKE THAT, YOUNG MAN?

IN REGARD TO YOUR--

WELL, SPEAK UP.

THIS IS A GOVERNMENT, NOT A REST HOME.

YOUR BEAR, SIR.

WHAT BEAR?

YOUR GRIZZLY BEAR.

HE'S FROM THE SMITHSONIAN--

OH, THE SMITHSONIAN! YES, YOU HAVE THE SKETCHES.

THANK YOU. NOW, LET'S SEE.

LET'S SEE THESE.

UH...I'M SORRY, THAT WON'T DO.

NO, THAT... NO, THAT'S ALL WRONG.

THAT'S TERRIBLE.

AND THAT ONE--OH [SIGHS]

CAN YOU SEE WHAT'S WRONG HERE, YOUNG MAN?

HIS POSITION.

YOU'VE MADE THIS FINE SPECIMEN OF A GRIZZLY

LOOK LIKE A HAIRY COW.

NOW, WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE PORTRAYED AS A HAIRY COW

IF YOU WERE A GRIZZLY BEAR?

PERHAPS THE PRESIDENT HAD A POSITION IN MIND.

CERTAINLY. HERE YOU ARE. NOW WATCH.

THE AMERICAN GRIZZLY

MUST ALWAYS BE PORTRAYED IN THE FIGHTING STANCE.

THAT'S THE SORT OF ANIMAL HE IS. YOU SEE?

UPRIGHT, RAMPANT, ON HIS TWO HIND FEET.

HIS GREAT FOREPAWS EXTENDED LIKE THAT.

TEETH BARED, CLAWING, GROWLING--

AAARRRRHH!

UNDERSTAND? YOU LIKE TO SKETCH THAT?

TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH.

OH, GOOD! READY?

GROWL AGAIN, FATHER.

YOU LIKE THAT? AAAARRRRH!

SEE THAT IT GETS COPIED.

NOW, WHERE WAS I WITH WINCHESTER, UH...

UM..."WHAT MUST I DO FOR

A PROPER FITTING?

NEED I GO TO ENGLAND?"

YES. OH, THAT'S ALL RIGHT THE WAY IT IS.

SEND IT OFF.

WHAT MUST A MAN DO ANYWAY

TO GET A PROPER FITTING RIFLE?

YOU CAN BET THAT RAISULI FELLOW'S

GOT A RIFLE THAT FITS HIM.

THOSE PEOPLE KNOW THE VALUE OF A GOOD WEAPON.

THE RIFLE IS THE VERY SOUL OF THE ARAB.

RAISULI'S A BERBER, MR. PRESIDENT.

IT GOES DOUBLE FOR

BERBERS.

WHAT SORT OF RIFLE

DOES HE USE, DO YOU SUPPOSE?

I DON'T KNOW, SIR.

SEND HIM A CABLEGRAM.

FIND OUT WHAT WEAPON THE OLD BASTARD USES.

I THINK YOU'RE THE BEST SHOT

THAT'S EVER OCCUPIED THE OFFICE.

[GROANS] OH, I DON'T KNOW.

JACKSON BACK THERE WAS QUITE A SHOT.

HE HAD THE PISTOLS ALL THE TIME, YOU KNOW?

SHOT A FELLOW RIGHT OFF THE PORCH

RIGHT OUT THERE.

CANED ANOTHER ONE TO DEATH.

ADMIRAL CHATWICK, I PRESUME.

I'M VICE-COUNSEL RICHARD DREIGHTON.

HOW ARE YOU, ADMIRAL?

CERTAINLY GOOD TO SEE YOU.

CAPTAIN.

I MUST SAY WE'VE BEEN AWAITING YOU

WITH CONSIDERABLE ANTICIPATION

AND I MUST SAY

NOT A LITTLE NERVOUSNESS.

YOU SEE, GENTLEMEN--AHEM--

WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS A PROBLEM OF...

ENORMOUS DIPLOMATIC COMPLEXITY.

NOW THE SULTAN OF MOROCCO--

MAKE YOURSELVES COMFORTABLE, GENTLEMEN.

THE SULTAN OF MOROCCO FAVORS THE GERMAN KAISER.

WHILE THE BASHAW,

WHO IS THE REAL POWER HERE,

IS LEANING TOWARD THE CZAR OF RUSSIA.

NOW IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THIS--AHEM--

AN AMERICAN WOMAN

IS KIDNAPPED BY SOME DESERT PIRATE,

AND OUR PRESIDENT, OF COURSE, GENTLEMEN,

ONLY WANTS TO KNOW WHAT KIND OF A RIFLE

THIS BRIGAND CARRIES.

AND HE...PROBABLY WANTS TO BUILD A CANAL, TOO,

FOR ALL I KNOW.

IT'S BEEN DONE BEFORE, YOU KNOW.

NOW, ADMIRAL. AHEM.

UH, MR. DREIGHTON,

SEE IF THE GENTLEMEN WOULD LIKE A CIGAR, PLEASE?

YOU AND I ARE BOTH OLD MEN

AND WE'VE SEEN THESE DISASTERS COME AND GO.

OUR PROBLEM IS TO MAKE THIS ONE GO...

AND MAKE IT LOOK GOOD.

I MUST REMIND YOU, SIR,

THAT I WAS AT CIAGO BAY

WHEN THIS PRESIDENT WAS RUNNING UP

SAN JUAN HILL,

AND I'M AFRAID WE'LL HAVE TO DO MORE

THAN JUST LOOK GOOD THIS TIME.

WELL, WHAT DID YOU... HAVE IN MIND EXACTLY?

MILITARY INTERVENTION.

YES. WE ARE AT THIS MOMENT

THE MOST POWERFUL NAVAL FORCE IN TANGIER HARBOR.

WELL, I--I DON'T SEE

WHAT THAT HAS TO DO WITH ANYTHING.

WE'RE A MAJOR POWER AT THIS MOMENT.

WE CARRY THE BIGGEST STICK.

WELL--AHEM--JUST HOW MANY MEN

DO YOU HAVE, CAPTAIN?

2 REINFORCED RIFLE COMPANIES, SIR.

WELL, YOU SEE, THE SULTAN OF MOROCCO

HAS 3 FOREIGN REGIMENTS IN FEZ.

THAT'S RIGHT, SIR. THEY'RE AT FEZ.

THE BASHAW HAS ONLY

HIS HOUSEHOLD CAVALRY AND GUARD HERE.

THE POWER LIES WITH THE BASHAW.

WHO IS THIS BOY?

LET HIM GO ON.

[CHUCKLES]

IT WOULD BE AS USELESS CHASING RAISULI

AS THE RED COATS ON BUNKER HILL.

AND THE SULTAN,

IF I'M CORRECT IN MY ASSUMPTION,

WILL NOT MEET HIS DEMANDS.

YES. GO ON.

THE SULTAN IS NOT THE POWER.

THE REAL GOVERNMENT IS HERE.

THAT'S RIGHT.

IT'D SEEM QUITE OBVIOUS, I WOULD THINK, SIR.

WE MUST SEIZE THE GOVERNMENT AND MAKE OUR OWN NEGOTIATIONS.

SEIZE THE GOVERNMENT?!

AT BAYONET POINT!

AHEM.

HA HA. I CERTAINLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE

THAT OLD SON OF A BITCH

AT BAYONET POINT, HUH? HA HA HA HA.

BUT IT'S RIDICULOUS.

IT'S OUTRAGEOUS, IT'S LUNATIC!

YES, ISN'T IT, THOUGH?

I SHOULD THINK TEDDY WOULD LOVE IT.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE FRENCH, GERMANS,

THE BRITISH?

WHY, WE'RE IN THE SHADOW OF GIBRALTAR!

DAMN THE LEGATIONS!

AHEM.

YOU REALIZE, OF COURSE,

IF WE FAIL IN THIS IN EVEN THE

SLIGHTEST WAY, WE'LL ALL BE KILLED.

YES.

AND THE WHOLE WORLD WILL PROBABLY GO TO WAR.

GENTLEMEN, IF WE FAIL AND ARE KILLED,

I CERTAINLY HOPE THAT THE WORLD DOES GO TO WAR.

THE WORLD AT WAR.

A WORLD WAR.

NOW THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING

TO GO OUT ON.

Whispering: William. Jennifer.

JENNIFER!

WHAT IS IT, MAMA? I WAS SLEEPING.

Dress quickly in the robes they gave you.

WHY ARE YOU DRESSED LIKE THAT?

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

WE'RE GOING TO MAKE GOOD AN ESCAPE.

AN ESCAPE?

RIGHT NOW? I WAS ASLEEP.

YOU CANNOT WAIT FOR THESE THINGS TO OCCUR

AT YOUR CONVENIENCE.

NOW, I BRIBED A MAN WITH JEWELS.

COME ON, GET DRESSED. HURRY UP.

Whispers: William!

[SNORES]

[GROANS]

[LOUDER GROAN]

William: COME ALONG. BE QUICK ABOUT IT.

[GIGGLES]

YOUR RIFLE, BOY? RIFLE?

YES, IT IS MINE.

GIVE ME YOUR RIFLE. GIVE IT TO ME, EH?

YOU'LL GET THE RIFLE WHEN WE REACH SAFETY

AND NOT BEFORE! NOW MOVE AHEAD!

[GASPS]

AH!

HA. HA?

[CHUCKLES]

THE RIFLE!

[GUNFIRE]

BE CAREFUL! WILLIAM!

WILLIAM...WILLIAM.

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

[CHUCKLING]

[GASPS]

MAMA!

[MAN LAUGHS]

WILLIAM!

[GUNFIRE]

[SPEAKING EXCITEDLY IN NATIVE LANGUAGE]

GET BACK!

NAA--AAH!

WILLIAM, GET THOSE LOOSE HORSES THERE.

QUICK. JENNIFER, GO WITH WILLIAM.

MRS. PEDECARIS,

YOU'RE A GREAT DEAL OF TROUBLE.

THERE IS ALL THAT YOU NEED HERE,

CLOTHES OF THE FINEST SILKS,

SPICED MEATS, FIGS, WHEN YOU WISH TO EAT.

SCENTED WATER TO BATHE IN.

WHERE ARE YOUR GUARDS?

IS IT YOUR INTENTION TO LET US ROAM ABOUT FREELY?

YOU'RE THE GUESTS OF THE RAISULI.

IN THE RAISULI'S HOUSE,

I DON'T NEED GUARDS.

MY EYES ARE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.

AND ALLAH IS WITH ME.

NO ONE CAN ESCAPE FROM GOD.

WHAT WILL YOU DO

IF THEY DO NOT ACCEPT YOUR TERMS?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

WHAT WILL BECOME OF US...

MY CHILDREN AND MYSELF?

I WILL PLAY CHESS WITH YOU ONE MORE TIME

AND THEN RETURN YOU TO YOUR HOUSE.

ALIVE?

YES, OF COURSE.

WELL, THEN YOU'RE JUST BLUFFING THEM.

YOU'VE NEVER HAD THE INTENTION OF KILLING US.

RAISULI DOES NOT KILL WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

THAT'S A SILLY QUESTION.

WHY DO YOU DO THIS?

[SNIFFS]

BECAUSE I AM BLUFFING, TOO.

MRS. PEDECARIS...

YOU TROUBLE ME.

UP OARS.

PRESENT ARMS!

GOOD MORNING, SIR.

THE COMPANY IS FORMED.

SERGEANTS, TAKE YOUR POST.

COMPANY...

STICKS...

BAYONETS...

MOVE!

Men: AYE!

RIGHT...

FACE!

FORWARD...

ARM!

ON THE LEFT...

MARCH!

RIGHT...

FOOT!

EYES...

RIGHT!

I DON'T THINK THE FRENCH AND GERMANS

ARE GONNA LIKE THIS.

TOO EARLY IN THE MORNING

FOR RATTLING SABERS.

DOUBLE TIME!

DOUBLE TIME!

MARCH!

[PEOPLE SCREAMING]

GO LEFT...

NOW!

Woman: QU'EST-CE QUE C'EST?

[SPEAKING FRENCH]

[SPEAKING FRENCH]

[SPEAKING GERMAN]

COMPANY...MARCH!

TO THE LEFT...

QUICK TURN!

QUICK TURN!

QUICK TURN!

THIRD AND FOURTH SQUADS,

RIGHT MARCH!

FIFTH AND SIXTH SQUADS,

RIGHT MARCH!

COMPANY...

HALT!

HOSTILES TO THE LEFT!

LEFT FACE!

FIRING POSITIONS!

MOVE!

AIM...

FIRE!

PREPARE TO CHARGE THE PALACE!

CHARGE!

[WAR CRY]

CAPTAIN JEROME. UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS.

AND YOU ARE MY PRISONER, SIR.

YOU ARE A VERY DANGEROUS MAN, CAPTAIN.

AND YOUR PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT IS MAD.

YES, SIR!

[BAND MUSIC]

[GUNSHOT]

HE'S GONE COWBOY AGAIN.

STAND BACK.

LET ME DEAL WITH HIM... OR TRY.

THEODORE...

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

ISN'T THAT THE CZAR?

FACSIMILE.

BUT THAT'S LIKE SHOOTING AT YOUR OWN BROTHER.

KERMIT'S IN THE PITS, THAT'S HIS IDEA OF A LITTLE JOKE.

OBVIOUSLY YOU RELISH JOKES

IN VIEW OF YOUR APPROVAL

OF THE GUMMERE REPORT.

TRIED TO GO ALONG WITH THEM, JOHN.

I SUPPOSE A DECLARATION OF WAR WOULD BE A JOKE, TOO.

WELL...I DO HAVE TO ADMIT IT WOULD BE ENTERTAINING.

BARREL OF LAUGHS.

HAVE YOU ANY IDEA OF THE RISK YOU'RE RUNNING?

HAVE YOU ANY IDEA OF THE TERRITORY I'D BE GAINING?

THEODORE...

[GUNSHOT]

YOU'RE DANGEROUS.

YOU MIGHT EVEN SHOOT SOMEBODY.

ACCIDENTALLY, I MEAN.

JOHN, I'D NEVER SHOOT ANYONE ACCIDENTALLY.

I NEED THEIR VOTES.

MADNESS.

MADNESS.

SIR?

UTTER MADNESS.

WHY ARE YOU CLOSING YOUR LEFT EYE, FATHER?

YOU'VE ALWAYS TOLD US TO SHOOT WITH BOTH EYES OPEN.

THE LIGHT BOTHERS ME. I CAN'T SEE OUT OF THAT EYE ANYMORE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

I'M BLIND IN MY LEFT EYE.

SINCE WHEN?

SINCE SATURDAY. BOXING.

NOW DON'T SAY ANYTHING TO EDITH ABOUT IT, YOU HEAR?

MAYBE IT'LL GO AWAY.

AND DON'T LET ANYONE COME UP ON MY LEFT SIDE, EITHER.

FATHER, IS RAISULI A REAL PIRATE?

YES, INDEED, QUENTIN. THE LAST OF THE BARBARY PIRATES.

WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?

WELL, THE WORLD IS FAST OUTGROWING PIRATES...

OF THAT SORT, ANYWAY.

DO YOU KNOW ANY OTHERS?

YES. J.P. MORGAN. HE'S THE ONLY OTHER REAL PIRATE I KNOW.

I HOPE YOU HAVE HIM BROUGHT BEFORE YOU IN CHAINS.

J.P. MORGAN? I SHOULD HOPE--

NO, NO, RAISULI. HAVE RAISULI BROUGHT BEFORE YOU.

I SHOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT.

OH, I SHOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM, TOO, BUT NOT IN CHAINS.

LET'S HAVE THE WINCHESTER, ALICE.

YOU LIKE HIM, DON'T YOU, FATHER?

YOU LIKE J.P. MORGAN, TOO, DON'T YOU?

OF COURSE I DO, ALICE.

BUT THEY'RE YOUR ENEMIES.

WELL...

SOMETIMES...

ONE FINDS THAT, UH...

YOUR ENEMIES ARE A LOT MORE ADMIRABLE

THAN YOUR FRIENDS.

YOU PICK THE ROAD TO GREATNESS,

YOU WILL HAVE THAT CHOICE SOME DAY.

YOU COME TO REALIZE

THAT THE ROAD TRAVELED BY GREAT MEN

IS DARK AND LONELY...

AND LIT ONLY AT INTERVALS BY OTHER GREAT MEN,

AND SOMETIMES THEY'RE YOUR ENEMIES.

BUT THEY'RE THE ONLY TRUE LUXURY YOU HAVE.

YES, IT'S A DARK AND DIFFICULT ROAD,

AND I DO NOT LOOK DOWN UPON ANYONE

WHO HAS THE GOOD SENSE NOT TO TAKE IT.

I WAS YOUNG

AND FULL OF THE SAYINGS OF YOUNG MEN.

I DID NOT YET UNDERSTAND THE WAYS OF THE PROPHET,

THE WILL OF GOD.

I THOUGHT THAT MEN COULD OPPOSE SUCH WILL.

I WAS VERY FOOLISH.

A MAN CAN TRUST NO ONE, YET OFTEN TRUSTS WOMEN.

I TRUSTED MY BROTHER

AND OPENLY OPPOSED THE OLD SULTAN AT FEZ.

HE WAS LETTING THE EUROPEANS GIVE HIM MONEY,

AND MONEY IS ALWAYS FOLLOWED BY MORE EUROPEANS.

MY BROTHER BETRAYED ME,

AND I WAS SENT TO MOGADOR.

MOGADOR?

IT IS A DUNGEON ON THE EDGE OF THE SEA.

I WAS SENT THERE TO DIE,

BUT I WAS YOUNG AND STRONG.

MY BRAIN WAS AS AGILE AS MY FINGERS.

THE CONFINEMENT.

SPEAK OF THE CONFINEMENT.

IT WAS THE INTENTION OF MY BROTHER

TO PERMIT THE FLIES AND THE ANTS TO CONSUME ME.

BUT AS THE YEARS PASSED

AND THE CHAINS WERE REPLACED MANY TIMES,

IT WAS ALWAYS I WHO REMAINED.

IT WAS THEN THAT THE GUARD SAW

THAT THE BARRAKAH WAS WITH ME.

HE ARRANGED MY ESCAPE.

I THANKED THEM FOR THE YEARS OF WISDOM THEY HAD GIVEN ME,

AND I WANDERED INTO THE MOUNTAINS.

ARE YOU ASLEEP?

NO. DID I LOOK LIKE IT?

NO, BUT YOU MADE NO NOISE,

AND, WELL, OTHERS HAVE FALLEN ASLEEP WHILE I SPEAK.

THE WANDERING...

RAISULI.

UH...YEAH.

I WANDERED INTO THE MOUNTAINS.

I WISHED ONLY TO HEAR THE VOICES OF WOMEN...

BABBLING ABOUT COMMON THINGS.

YOU'LL PERMIT ME TO SAY THE CONVERSATION OF WOMEN

DOES NOT INTEREST ME VERY MUCH.

[MEN LAUGH]

BUT, WHEN ONE IS IN PRISON,

ONE IS INCLINED TO HAVE

A DIFFERENT SENSE OF DISPOSITION.

THE RIFFIANS FOUND ME.

I LEARNED TO READ

AND TO SPEAK AGAIN!

THE WOMEN AIDED ME IN THIS

BECAUSE OF MY LINEAGE, BUT THE MEN...

THEY WANTED TO SELL MY HEAD TO THE OLD

SULTAN AT FEZ FOR RIFLES AND GOLD.

THERE WAS BUT ONE THING TO DO--

CHALLENGE ABDUL MULI.

WE FOUGHT WITH SWORDS ON HORSEBACK,

AND THE BARRAKAH WAS WITH ME.

I CUT OFF HIS ARM... AND HE WOUNDED ME.

MANY TIMES.

THE TRIBESMEN JUDGED HIM,

AND EVERY VOICE WAS AGAINST HIM.

AND HIS EYES...

WHICH HAD WITNESSED MUCH INJUSTICE,

WERE BURNED OUT WITH HEATED COPPER COINS.

AND TODAY, HE WANDERS THE LAND...

A BLIND BEGGAR.

THUS...

I BECAME THE TRUE DEFENDER OF THE FAITHFUL

FOR THE BLOOD OF THE PROPHET RUNS IN ME,

AND I AM BUT AN INSTRUMENT OF HIS WILL.

[WOMEN ULULATING]

SALAAM.

RAISULI, LORD OF THE RIF.

SALAAM.

SALAAM. SALAAM.

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

I'VE NEVER SEEN SUCH FIERCE RETAINERS.

THESE ARE MY IMMORTALS. THEY HAVE SUCH--

JENNIFER, PUT THAT THING DOWN!

LET IT BE.

THEY ARE FEARED IN THE STREETS OF HELL,

AND THEIR COURAGE IS SUCH

THAT GOLDEN THRONES AWAIT THEM IN PARADISE.

[CHUCKLES]

YOU ARE PLEASED?

I AM PLEASED...

RAISULI WILL BE PLEASED.

THE BASHAW OFFERS THIS.

70,000 PIECES OF SPANISH GOLD...

ALL FOREIGN SOLDIERS TO BE REMOVED FROM THE RIF...

AND THE RAISULI AND HIS FOLLOWERS

ARE TO BE GRANTED THE FREEDOM TO TRAVEL

IN THE CITIES AND MARKETPLACES.

AND LAST, ALL THOSE HELD IN THE DUNGEONS OF MOGADOR

WHO WERE FAITHFUL TO RAISULI

SHALL BE PLACED UNDER RAISULI'S CARE.

THIS...AND RETURN FOR THE AMERICAN WOMAN

AND HER CHILDREN.

IT IS THE WORD

OF THE AMERICAN SULTAN ROOSEVELT AND HIS HONOR.

EVEN WITH TREACHERY

SUCH AN OFFER IS IMPRESSIVE.

HA HA HA HA.

[SPEAKING NATIVE LANGUAGE]

THE AMERICAN BASHAW WISHED

THAT RAISULI ACT IN HASTE,

AS THE OTHER EUROPEANS ARE NOT PLEASED.

YOU MUST TAKE THEIR OFFER!

EACH DAY THAT YOU KEEP US HERE

THE EUROPEANS USE AS AN EXCUSE TO LAND MORE TROOPS.

EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE FOUGHT FOR IS WASTED!

THEY ARE USING YOU, RAISULI!

YOU ARE BECOMING A DUPE TO THEM!

DO NOT CALL THE RAISULI A DUPE.

I DO NOT NEED THE COUNSEL OF WOMEN.

THE AMERICAN WOMAN IS TRUE.

EVERY DAY MORE GERMANS TRAVEL TO FEZ.

THEY HAVE GUNS THAT NEED WHEELS TO CARRY THEM.

WHAT IS STOPPING YOU? CAN'T YOU SEE?

IT IS NO LONGER OUR CONCERN. THE GREAT POWERS WANT THIS LAND,

THEY WILL FIGHT EACH OTHER TO TAKE THIS LAND,

AND WHEN THEY ARE DONE, THERE WILL BE NOTHING--

NOT YOUR MOUNTAINS NOR YOUR PALACE NOR PRIDE NOR YOUR HONOR!

IT IS A WIND SO STRONG, NO TREE CAN STAND IN IT.

AND WHERE THERE ARE NO TREES,

THERE IS NO SHADE FROM THE SUN.

AND WHAT IS LAND WITHOUT SHADE FROM THE SUN? DESERT.

THE DESERT I KNOW VERY WELL.

MRS. PEDECARIS, YOU SPEAK LIKE A BERBER!

IT MUST BE THE HEAT!

WHY DO YOU DO THIS? I DO NOT ORDINARILY

ASK THE COUNSEL OF ANY MAN, LET ALONE THE COUNSEL OF WOMEN!

YOU--YOU'RE NOT EVEN ONE OF MY WIVES!

I SHOULD CERTAINLY SAY NOT!

I A-AM NOT!

CHILDREN, COME HERE.

WE HAVE NO MORE BUSINESS HERE.

LET THESE BRIGANDS DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES

WHAT THEY SHALL DO WITH US.

MRS. PEDECARIS, I HAVE DECIDED

IT WOULD PLEASE ME

TO RETURN YOU TO PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT,

BECAUSE YOU'RE A LOT OF TROUBLE!

PERHAPS HE WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH YOU.

IT IS NOT MY FATE TO FIND OUT!

HA HA HA HA HA!

EVEN YOU LAUGH AT THE RAISULI.

THIS WOMAN HAS TAKEN THE RAISULI.

YOU SAY SUCH THINGS IN FRONT OF MY MEN.

WHAT HAS BECOME OF HONOR, RESPECT?

EVERYTHING IS CHANGING, DRIFTING AWAY ON THE WIND.

IT'S BEEN A BAD YEAR.

NEXT ONE WILL PROBABLY BE WORSE.

WHERE DO WE HAVE TO TAKE THEM TO GET OUR GOLD?

I WILL TAKE THEM. YOU NEED NOT RISK YOUR LIFE.

WHAT DOES MY LIFE MATTER? I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO.

PREPARE TO RIDE.

[WOMEN ULULATING]

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS WOMAN.

MY ENTIRE EDUCATION HAS BEEN HORSES AND THE KORAN.

WHAT HAVE I LEARNED?

LOOK WHAT I'VE BECOME.

YOU ARE LORD OF THE RIF.

YES. AND YOU WOULD THINK I WOULD UNDERSTAND THIS WOMAN.

WHERE IS IT EXACTLY WHERE WE'RE GOING?

TO A SMALL VILLAGE EAST OF RABAT

AT THE FOOT OF THE MOUNTAINS.

IT IS GOOD.

WHAT IS GOOD?

IT IS GOOD TO KNOW WHERE WE ARE GOING.

[MEN SING]

WHAT ARE THEY SINGING?

THEY ARE SINGING SONGS TO GOD.

WHY ARE YOU NOT SINGING?

I AM THE SULTAN. THEY DO THE SINGING.

THAT IS RIDICULOUS!

IT IS CUSTOM.

THERE'S JUST ONE THING I'D LIKE TO ASK YOU.

YES, WHAT IS IT?

WHAT IS YOUR FIRST NAME?

MY FIRST NAME?

YES. YOUR CHRISTIAN NAME.

I MEAN--WHAT IS THE NAME

THAT PRECEDES ALL YOUR OTHER NAMES?

MY FIRST NAME. MY CHRISTIAN NAME.

I AM MULI ACHMED MOHAMMED

RAISULI THE MAGNIFICENT,

LORD OF THE RIF.

MULI. THAT IS A NICE NAME.

YES.

MULI.

I AM EDEN, MULI.

EDEN.

OF COURSE.

YOU NEED NOT GO ANY FURTHER.

MY RETAINERS WILL BRING BACK THE GOLD.

WHAT GOOD IS THE WORD OF THE ROOSEVELT

IF IT IS NOT MET BY THE WORD OF THE RAISULI?

MY BROTHER KNOWS THIS.

I DO NOT FEAR TREACHERY OR FATE.

I FEAR ONLY GOD.

IT IS FOOLISH AND SILLY TO TALK AS SUCH.

THESE EUROPEANS ARE NOT MEN.

THEY DO NOT RESPECT THE LAWS OF MEN. LET ME TAKE THE WOMAN.

HE IS RIGHT. IT IS NO LONGER YOUR CONCERN.

NO LONGER MY CONCERN?

IT IS I WHO TOOK YOU. IT PLEASED ME TO DO SO.

IT PLEASES ME NOW TO BRING YOU BACK.

NO LONGER MY CONCERN.

SHERIF, BRING YOUR RETAINERS.

THE WOMAN PEDECARIS MUST NOT BE ENDANGERED.

SHE MUST RETURN TO PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT.

IF THERE IS TO BE TREACHERY,

ALLAH WILL NOT LEAVE MY SIDE, BUT YOU MUST.

RIDE BACK. LEAD THE MAHALLAH.

LET THERE BE JIHAD.

LET THE SWORDS RUN WITH THE BLOOD OF THE INFIDELS.

WE WILL ALL EAT LAMB IN PARADISE.

THROW DOWN YOUR ARMS!

THEY OBEY ONLY MY WILL, AND I AM THE RAISULI.

[MEN SHOUTING IN GERMAN]

I AM MRS. PEDECARIS. I DO NOT INTEND TO HAVE

MY FAMILY ENDANGERED ANY FURTHER!

MRS. PEDECARIS? CAPTAIN JEROME. UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS.

YES, MA'AM. HELP THE CHILDREN.

BETTER TAKE COVER INSIDE, MA'AM.

INSIDE.

INSIDE.

I AM THE SHERIF OF WAZAN. THESE ARE MY RETAINERS.

THEY DO NOT RIDE WITH THIS BRIGAND.

TAKE HIM IF YOU WANT!

WHAT WILL THEY DO TO HIM?

THAT CAN'T BE OUR CONCERN, MA'AM.

WE'RE QUITE OUTNUMBERED HERE.

[SHOUTING IN GERMAN]

LET'S GO INSIDE.

I EXPECT LOADED RIFLES FOR HIS HEAD!

I DO NOT DO THIS FOR A LACKEY'S WAGES!

[SHOUTING IN NATIVE LANGUAGE]

[COINS JINGLE]

CAN'T WE GET OUT OF HERE?

NOT UNTIL IT'S LIGHT, MA'AM.

I WOULDN'T TRUST THESE SORTS IN THE DARK.

[SPEAKING IN NATIVE LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING OF THE JIHAD]

MOTHER.

MOTHER, AREN'T YOU GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE RAISULI?

Whispers: William, the Raisuli is not our concern.

Aren't you going to do anything about him?

Go to sleep, William!

Mother...

William!

[HARMONICA PLAYS]

William.

William, have you got your dagger?

CAPTAIN.

AHEM. [LOUDER] CAPTAIN!

COULD YOU BRING US SOME WATER, PLEASE?

OF COURSE, MA'AM.

HERE WE GO.

FOR THE BOY FIRST, CAPTAIN. HE HAS A FEVER.

HERE, SON. HOLD YOUR HEAD UP. THERE WE GO.

UH--MA'AM!

DON'T ANY OF YOU MOVE! I SHALL CUT THIS MAN'S THROAT

AS YOU STAND THERE IF YOU DON'T DO AS I SAY.

I AM NOT FOOLING. NOW DROP THOSE WEAPONS.

YOU KNOW, YOU COULD HURT SOMEBODY--

DON'T TOUCH THAT! WILLIAM, GET THEM.

JENNIFER HELP HIM. GET THE PISTOLS, TOO.

WILLIAM, GIVE ME THE SHORT ONE.

ALL RIGHT, GET UP.

[COCKS TRIGGER]

NOW EASY WITH THAT THING, MA'AM.

I HAVE SHOT GROUSE IN SCOTLAND AND QUAIL IN NORTH CAROLINA.

BELIEVE ME, I KNOW HOW TO USE THIS THING.

JUST WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO, MRS. PEDECARIS?

WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO GET ACROSS?

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT MADE AN AGREEMENT

WITH THAT MAN BEING HELD OVER THERE,

AND PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT KEEPS HIS AGREEMENTS!

THERE'S NO NEED TO DO THIS. WE'RE ALL AMERICANS HERE.

WHAT EXACTLY DID YOU HAVE IN MIND?

I INTEND TO FREE THE RAISULI.

ALONE, I SUPPOSE.

WITH MY CHILDREN!

WELL, NOW, MA'AM,

I WISH YOU'D SAID THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE,

'CAUSE IF YOU'RE GONNA TRY IT ALONE

WITH YOUR CHILDREN, YOU HAVEN'T GOT A CHANCE.

WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST I DO THEN...

CAPTAIN?

I'D LIKE TO THROW IN WITH YA.

AND GOD HELP US.

DRAW YOUR WEAPONS FROM THE BOY HERE.

[MEN MURMUR AGREEMENT]

MY PISTOL, PLEASE.

[CALLING COMMANDS]

HALT!

WE WANNA SEE YOUR PRISONER.

[SPEAKING GERMAN]

I SAID WE WANNA SEE YOUR PRISONER!

[YELLING IN GERMAN]

WE WANT TO SEE THE RAISULI.

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT NEGOTIATED IN GOOD FAITH!

[SHOUTING IN GERMAN]

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

[SHOUTING]

[ALL MEN SHOUTING]

LET'S GO!

[SHOUTING IN GERMAN]

AAH!

OH, MY GOD!

AH, MRS. PEDECARIS!

HA. AMERICA HAS NOT DESERTED ME.

CUT ME DOWN QUICK BEFORE IT DOES.

THE SWORD, WOMAN!

THE SWORD!

BETTER.

OH, MY--ARE YOU HURT?

MRS. PEDECARIS,

YOU ARE A LOT OF TROUBLE.

WHOO!

I'LL SEE YOU AGAIN, MRS. PEDECARIS,

WHEN WE'RE BOTH LIKE GOLDEN CLOUDS ON THE WIND.

HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Roosevelt: THERE'S NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, JOHN.

ALL I HAVE TO DO IS GO TO OYSTER BAY FOR THE WEEKEND,

AND THE GOVERNMENT OF MOROCCO FALLS. EH?

BY THE WAY, HOW IS MRS. PEDECARIS?

SHE'S IN FINE HEALTH, SIR. QUITE A REMARKABLE WOMAN.

ACCORDING TO CAPTAIN JEROME, DURING THE FIGHTING AT ER-SARIB,

SHE DISPLAYED COMMENDABLE COURAGE.

YES, SO DID THAT JEROME BOY.

I WANT TO SEE HIM DECORATED WITH SOMETHING.

WHATEVER YOU THINK IS APPROPRIATE.

AND GUMMERE AND WHAT'S HIS NAME, THE OTHER FELLOW--

WELL, DECORATE THE WHOLE OUTFIT. ALL OF THEM.

I MUST SAY, THEODORE, YOU SHOULD THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS.

LUCK HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT, JOHN. I HAD GOD ON MY SIDE.

HA HA. MAYBE ALLAH.

HA. WHAT'S THAT?

WELL, THAT'S YOUR BEAR, YOUR GRIZZLY BEAR, SIR.

FIRST REPORTS ARE WE CAN GET

ANYTHING WE WANT IN MOROCCO, SIR.

WE CAN PUT ANYBODY WE WANT ON THE THRONE.

THEIR CAMPS WERE DIVIDED. IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

AT THIS MOMENT, THEODORE IS THE MOST POPULAR PRESIDENT

IN THE HISTORY OF THE OFFICE.

SIR?

TAKE THAT COVER OFF.

I WANT TO SEE MY BEAR.

LATER, PERHAPS, THEODORE.

NO, I WANT TO SEE HIM NOW.

A GOOD SPEECH WOULD BE APPROPRIATE

IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS, SIR.

EVEN THE PAPERS ARE CHEERING YOU.

THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT THE OUTCOME

OF THE ELECTION, THEODORE.

GENTLEMEN...

NOTHING IN THIS WORLD IS CERTAIN.

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

THE FATE OF THE NATION WILL BE DECIDED

BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN NOVEMBER.

AND THE FATE OF MOROCCO WILL BE DECIDED TOMORROW BY ME.

AND NOW, GENTLEMEN, IF YOU DON'T MIND,

I'D JUST LIKE TO BE ALONE WITH MY BEAR.

I, UH, TRUST HE WAS A DEMOCRAT.

[MEN CHUCKLE]

John: RUDYARD KIPLING ONCE SAID...

"THERE WALKS A MAN."

Raisuli's voice: "TO THEODORE ROOSEVELT.

"YOU ARE LIKE THE WIND,

"AND I LIKE THE LION.

"YOU FORM THE TEMPEST.

"THE SAND STINGS MY EYES AND THE GROUND IS PARCHED.

"I ROAR IN DEFIANCE, BUT YOU DO NOT HEAR.

"BUT BETWEEN US, THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.

"I, LIKE THE LION, MUST REMAIN IN MY PLACE

"WHILE YOU, LIKE THE WIND,

WILL NEVER KNOW YOURS."

MULI ACHMED MOHAMMED

EL RAISULI THE MAGNIFICENT.

LORD OF THE RIF.

GREAT RAISULI, WE HAVE LOST EVERYTHING.

ALL IS DRIFTING ON THE WIND JUST AS YOU SAID.

WE HAVE LOST EVERYTHING!

SHERIF, IS THERE NOT ONE THING IN YOUR LIFE

THAT WAS WORTH LOSING EVERYTHING FOR?

HA HA HA HA HA!

Both: HA HA HA HA!
