Hey! Captain, Zorrino! That voice! l must be dreaming! Captain! Behind the waterfall! Throw me a rope! Hang on, Tintin! Here it comes.
Got it! - Come! - ln there? Yes, through here.
lt's only a thin curtain of water.
lf you say so.
Blistering barnacles! Remarkable! Where are we? lncredible! Your turn, Zorrino.
- Zorrino! - Tintin! Captain.
l've stumbled on a lost entrance to the temple.
Must be dark in there.
l thought so too, but the rocks are phosphorescent.
They reflect light.
We're getting near to Calculus.
No! We're stuck! A corridor.
Where you going? Well done, Snowy! lnca Mummies! lt's a tomb.
This could be a secret doorway.
Tintin? Blistering barnacles! Give me a hand! Where the devil! - Who's that? - Look, Captain! Come and help! l don't feel like hanging about here.
l don't think l like the company.
One, two, three! lt moved! Again! One, two, three! Sacrilege! Seize them! Sea gherkins! Ectoplasms! Poltroons! Terrorists! Don't cry.
We'll get out of this.
The medallion! Take this medallion.
lt may save your life.
l wonder Zorrino Take care of this, it has its use.
Strangers you have violated the sacred temple.
You must pay for this with your lives.
Do you think we'd let ourselves get massacred? You tin-hatted tyrant! Prince of the Sun, we don't wish to offend.
We're looking for our friend, Calculus.
Your friend dared wear the bracelet of Rascar Capac.
He too must die.
You've no right to kill him! lt's murder.
lt's not us who will kill you.
lt's the sun itself.
lts rays will set alight your pyre.
And this lndian who betrayed us he will be sacrificed at once on the altar.
Blue barnacles! Don't dare touch him! Zorrino, the medallion.
Where did you steal that? l not steal, Prince of the Sun.
He give me this medallion.
Prince of the Sun it is l who gave the sacred token - to the stranger.
- You, Huascar? You gave this talisman to our enemy? Yes, because he courageously defended our race.
He's not our enemy, O Prince.
Huascar, your action will save the young lndian.
But the strangers must die.
But, l will grant them one favour.
They may choose the day and hour when the sacred sun rays can light their pyre.
Let them be imprisoned until tomorrow.
The Sun Prince has spoken.
We're in it this time up to our necks.
Thundering typhoons! Snowy.
What's this? You told me to keep it to light a fire.
Won't be needing it.
Now there'll be fire alright.
Now where are they? The pendulum says they're low.
That's interesting.
ls today the 1 5th? Yes, if it makes any difference! So tomorrow's the 1 6th! Eureka! We're saved.
What's the matter with you? Can't explain now.
No false hopes! lt's most important for you to trust me and do as l say.
Well, strangers have you fixed the day of your death? Yes, Prince of the Sun.
This afternoon at four o'clock.
Today is my friend's birthday and You crazy? You know it's not You promised to trust me.
Take them away! The ceremony will continue as planned.
You were so keen to see us roasting on this barbecue! Trust me, Captain.
Captain! Here's Calculus! After all the time we've spent looking for him! Now we'll be able to spend all eternity with him.
Why, Captain what a delightful surprise! How are you? Just dandy, Cuthbert.
And you, dear Tintin! Tell what is all this performance? We're with the lncas.
Real cinema! Good! Congrats to the director! What a clever historical reconstruction! Those extras are so natural.
Who'd believe they're acting? Let the sacrifice begin! No! You can't! You can't! What are we doing here? According to the pendulum they must be in a hot spot.
O Pachacamac, Lord of the day! Strike now with thine avenging rays! O Magnificent Sun! Do not heed your son's prayers! Show us that our death isn't your desire.
Silence, dog! How dare you call on the Sun.
O sublime Pachacamac! lf this sacrifice is not thy will hide thy shining face! Poor Tintin! He's lost his mind.
Barnacles! What's this? An eclipse! Oh, an eclipse! No reason to panic, Captain.
lt's only an eclipse.
Mercy! l implore you! l'll grant you all you desire.
Lift the curse from the 7 explorers who came to you seeking only knowledge of your long forgotten culture.
You have my word! O Sun, Lord of the day! Show mercy, l pray thee! Pity thy children! Show thy light once more! The Sun obeys him! Set them free! Your newspaper saved us.
Life is magnificent! Life is magnificent! Now what? lt says they're getting bumped about.
These wax images hold my spell over those you defend.
What about the crystal balls? They contain a mystic liquid which plunged the victims into a sleep.
Perfect for enchantment.
l stay here.
Bye, Zorrino.
Your place is here now.
Farewell, my friend.
Noble strangers! l have a favour to ask.
l know your thoughts, Sun Prince! Have no fears! l'll never reveal the whereabouts of the temple.
l swear it, too! May my beard be barbecued if l breathe a word! l swear l'll never act in another film.
However glittering the Hollywood contract! Adios, Señores.
May the sun shine on you! Hang on a sec! Don't go just yet! Nothing personal but that pays a very old debt.
Let's go, Captain.
