Chapter 1 ( 04 min., 09 sec. )
Yet Sapt was in the right about him. ( 04 min., 46 sec. )
As time went on, the first impulse... ( 05 min., 57 sec. )
I left the queen and went to prepare... ( 05 min., 23 sec. )
To lay on the king the full blame... ( 05 min., 14 sec. )
Chapter 2: A Station Without a Cab ( 04 min., 32 sec. )
We arrived punctual to our appointed time. ( 04 min., 44 sec. )
'Well, there's no help for it,' said I... ( 04 min., 50 sec. )
On either side my hands were still pinned fast. ( 03 min., 30 sec. )
Then came Rischenheim's voice again... ( 03 min., 47 sec. )
Chapter 3: Again to Zenda ( 04 min., 43 sec. )
My battered head ached most consumedly. ( 04 min., 01 sec. )
Rudolf came, calm and serene. ( 04 min., 57 sec. )
'Come, Fritz,' he cried... ( 03 min., 42 sec. )
He was hardly gone... ( 03 min., 30 sec. )
Chapter 4: An Eddy on the Moat ( 03 min., 33 sec. )
The king rose with a yawn, and bade the colonel good-night. ( 05 min., 24 sec. )
Sapt ran on. Opening the gate that led to the bridge... ( 05 min., 06 sec. )
Yet there was in truth nothing strange... ( 04 min., 03 sec. )
Nevertheless it was a quarter of an hour... ( 05 min., 08 sec. )
Chapter 5: An Audience of The King ( 03 min., 17 sec. )
At ten minutes to eight o'clock... ( 03 min., 43 sec. )
The count advanced, bowing low... ( 03 min., 58 sec. )
Now Rudolf played his part well. ( 04 min., 39 sec. )
Bernenstein looked in again. ( 04 min., 41 sec. )
Now Sapt was resolved not to leave Rischenheim alone... ( 03 min., 33 sec. )
Inside the room, Rischenheim stood... ( 03 min., 05 sec. )
Chapter 6: The Task of The Queen's Servants ( 03 min., 57 sec. )
'I doubt if it would bring me,' grinned old Sapt... ( 04 min., 21 sec. )
A few moments later Bernenstein returned. ( 03 min., 46 sec. )
'Will it last forever?' she asked... ( 03 min., 52 sec. )
Thus she turned away, letting him go. ( 03 min., 51 sec. )
The queen made no sound... ( 03 min., 50 sec. )
Chapter 7: The Message of Simon the Huntsman ( 03 min., 39 sec. )
I hardly stayed to form a resolution. ( 04 min., 36 sec. )
'I wish a customer had come in...' ( 05 min., 17 sec. )
Now, after all our stir and runnings to and fro... ( 04 min., 18 sec. )
'Well, Simon, where is the king?' she asked... ( 03 min., 39 sec. )
'Suppose Rupert -' The Constable of Zenda broke inches.. ( 03 min., 33 sec. )
Chapter 8: The Temper of Boris the Hound ( 05 min., 06 sec. )
Suddenly Sapt, turning his head for the first time... ( 05 min., 03 sec. )
I looked where his hand now was. ( 04 min., 13 sec. )
'If the king asks more, tell him I have the packet...' ( 04 min., 24 sec. )
'You damned fool!' roared Rupert... ( 05 min., 16 sec. )
Chapter 9: The King in the Hunting Lodge ( 04 min., 17 sec. )
An hour or more had passed since our discovery... ( 04 min., 51 sec. )
So the plan was made. ( 05 min., 06 sec. )
The stableman had led the horse away... ( 03 min., 52 sec. )
However, not why the queen went, but that she had gone... ( 03 min., 41 sec. )
But at this moment I saw a man on the platform... ( 03 min., 23 sec. )
Chapter 10: The King in Strelsau ( 03 min., 37 sec. )
Reluctantly and ruefully the fat fellow stepped out... ( 04 min., 46 sec. )
Both to my wife and to Rudolf himself... ( 03 min., 36 sec. )
Mr. Rassendyll asked no better than to meet his enemy... ( 04 min., 06 sec. )
Along they went; soon they came... ( 04 min., 15 sec. )
The half then, at least, of Rosa's attachment... ( 05 min., 05 sec. )
Chapter 11: What the Chancellor's Wife Saw ( 03 min., 42 sec. )
Now, it was plain that Bauer... ( 04 min., 21 sec. )
As he spoke Rudolf turned to knock at the door... ( 04 min., 02 sec. )
At this moment he heard horses' hoofs behind him. ( 04 min. )
A doubtful, puzzled little smile spread... ( 03 min., 23 sec. )
Flight was impossible. ( 04 min., 15 sec. )
Chapter 12: Before Them All! ( 04 min., 59 sec. )
There was nothing that Rudolf more desired... ( 04 min., 18 sec. )
Bernenstein, however, persuaded her to go... ( 03 min., 32 sec. )
A moment of absolute silence followed... ( 03 min., 14 sec. )
But every moment bore its peril... ( 04 min., 19 sec. )
Chapter 13: A King Up His Sleeve ( 04 min., 15 sec. )
The old woman shook her head. ( 05 min., 17 sec. )
Rischenheim was staring at him... ( 03 min., 42 sec. )
Then he walked across to the window... ( 03 min., 48 sec. )
Starting from this point, his audacious mind... ( 04 min., 39 sec. )
Chapter 14: The News Comes to Strelsau ( 04 min., 45 sec. )
The door of the room opened... ( 04 min., 29 sec. )
'Listen,' said Rudolf. ( 04 min., 40 sec. )
The three were standing round me... ( 02 min., 59 sec. )
Rudolf turned to me. ( 03 min., 23 sec. )
Chapter 15: A Pastime For Colonel Sapt ( 05 min., 23 sec. )
'In fact, sir, we were all overcome with fatigue...' ( 04 min., 20 sec. )
Sapt was still smiling in grim amusement... ( 04 min., 07 sec. )
Then and there they set about what they had to do. ( 04 min. )
'Yes, Simon, your brother will be here...' ( 04 min., 04 sec. )
Chapter 16: A Crowd in the Konigstrasse ( 04 min., 21 sec. )
I did not know what she intended... ( 04 min., 52 sec. )
As she rose, Rischenheim made a quick impulsive step... ( 05 min., 19 sec. )
Our way did not lie by the house... ( 04 min., 26 sec. )
The fellow whom I saw... ( 04 min., 15 sec. )
Chapter 17: Young Rupert and the Play-actor ( 04 min., 58 sec. )
'I've come to see the Count of Hentzau,' Rudolf continued. ( 03 min., 49 sec. )
'Ah, the play-actor!' said he... ( 04 min., 34 sec. )
But he had overshot the mark this time. ( 04 min., 25 sec. )
A sudden flush swept over Rupert of Hentzau's face. ( 03 min., 55 sec. )
Ignorant of the mind and heart of young Rupert... ( 03 min., 46 sec. )
Chapter 18: The Triumph of The King ( 04 min., 33 sec. )
The device that he adopted was nicely chosen. ( 05 min., 01 sec. )
I looked again at Rupert. ( 05 min., 24 sec. )
Moved by some impulse, I walked to the window... ( 03 min., 53 sec. )
Bernenstein had more presence of mind than I. ( 04 min., 21 sec. )
Young Bernenstein interrupted his cheering... ( 04 min., 03 sec. )
Chapter 19: For Our Love and Her Honour ( 04 min., 03 sec. )
'He'll take the throne,' I cried triumphantly. ( 04 min., 47 sec. )
The minutes seemed very long as we waited... ( 04 min., 11 sec. )
'In an hour I must be gone from here,' began Rudolf. ( 04 min., 46 sec. )
We rushed to the door of the room where he was. ( 04 min., 58 sec. )
He spoke firmly and coldly... ( 04 min., 31 sec. )
Chapter 20: The Decision of Heaven ( 04 min., 07 sec. )
Then he faltered; but he had not fallen. ( 04 min., 54 sec. )
'There's a chance for you...' ( 04 min., 29 sec. )
It might be that there was little reason in her words. ( 04 min., 35 sec. )
But now our attention was again diverted. ( 05 min., 36 sec. )
He opened his eyes, and his lips bent in a smile. ( 05 min., 05 sec. )
Chapter 21: The Coming of the Dream ( 03 min., 30 sec. )
A distant faint hum of voices reached us. ( 03 min., 54 sec. )
Times change for all of us. ( 02 minutes, 59 sec. )
