Beat me...hang me!

There are many memorable scenes in Cross and Sword, both for the audience and for the cast. One of the most memorable sequences of scenes are those leading up to the Hurricane Dance which include Juan Rivas’ great line, “Beat me...hang me.”

Above, James Remar, the 1974 Juan Rivas, is flanked by Paul Williamson (on left as soldier) and Thomas Rahner (on right) as Pedro Menendez.

Below are pages from a script from the 1975 season with notes from that season’s Juan Rivas, Kerk Fisher. (click on any image to enlarge)
