This is my entry in the Great Villain Blogathon sponsored by Shadows and Satin, Speakeasy and Silver Screenings. Please visit the link above and read the other entries as well, k?
|I first met Mr. Kane when he muscled his way into my|
palatial, well-kept desert estate on National Striped Bathrobe Day.
|Before he came in, if you can believe it, he relieved|
himself on my front stoop!
|Then, upon entry, he shamelessly ingratiated himself|
with my granddaughter as I was fetching refreshments.
|My housekeeper reacted as any good frau -- I mean|
woman -- would. By drawing a pistol.
|Mr. Kane reacted in the most cowardly way possible --|
by using my granddaughter as cover! So he escaped,
without so much as a thank you for the refreshments.
|By now, the word was out about Mr. Kane|
being a fugitive --
|-- and he enticed a Miss Martin into pretending to be|
|Together they went on a spree of property destruction ...|
|... ending at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where Mr. Kane|
attacked Frank, one of my henchmen -- I mean employees --
who was minding his own business, peacefully
listening to Radio Berlin.
|Then Miss Martin cruelly tricked Frank|
while they were sightseeing at the Statue of Liberty.
|This led to Frank being ambushed by Mr. Kane and|
Miss Martin, and things very quickly got, you should
excuse the expression, out of hand.
|Do I blame Mr. Kane for Frank's death? Well, let's put it|
this way -- HE SOLD FRANK THAT SUIT.
|Well, there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Judge the|
evidence for yourselves, and please take into account
my friendly manner and luxurious lifestyle. I believe that
the truth will triumph uber alles -- I mean, over all.
