CHE-TV Episode 2
The camera starts filming in the tent. CHE and his guerillas are seated around a guest playing the guitar. It is a classical piece. The cast is cleaning their weapons. They appear somber and reflective having ended the previous show with a gunfight. The tent flap abruptly opening interrupts the scene.
Guard 1: "El Commandante, El Commandante we have a prisoner!"
CHE: "Bring him in."
The guards enter with a distinguished woman in a long dress.
Capt. Ron: "What's this?"
Bill the CIA guy: "A beauty queen?"
Evita: "I am the wife of El Presidante. I demand that you release me immediately. There will be dire consequences to your actions."
CHE: "And who will orchestrate these dire consequences madam?"
Evita: "My husband of course."
CHE: "Pray tell dear woman. Who is your husband?"
Evita: "Juan Peron you fool."
Capt. Ron and Bill the CIA guy: "Evita?"
CHE: "Aw, darling Argentina."
Evita: "Yes I am Evita Peron. Now unhand me you lechers."
Guard Sarah: "Make sure you save the dress before she is executed. It would be a sin to ruin it."
CHE: "Now, now no one is going to be executed quite yet."
Guard 2: "But El Commandante, the Peron's looted their country and oppressed their people. They have no right to fair or decent treatment."
CHE: "We are revolutionaries; that is true, but we will not adopt the ways of the fascists. Come Mrs. Peron. Have a seat."
Capt. Ron: "You are a dynamic personage in history. Popular culture has made you into an icon without the stigma of an Imelda Marcos."
Bill the CIA guy: "Evita was akin to royalty."
Evita: "Thank you sir."
Bill the CIA guy: "Don't thank me. I mean you had style but in a despotic sort of way. Few people know what role you really played in history. Tin pot dictators routinely loot their treasuries. You, however, have partaken in some of the greatest crimes of the century."
Evita: "I have no idea of what you mean."
Bill the CIA guy: "Really. I have been an intelligence operative for some time and my father before me."
Capt. Ron: "Surely you understand the significance of war. You must be aware of the wholesale looting that accompanies the slaughter."
Evita: "We came across our fortunes earnestly."
Guard Sarah: "The hell you did."
Capt. Ron: "Confession is good for the soul. Aiding in confessions is my specialty."
Evita: "I have nothing to confess."
Bill the CIA guy: "At the end of the war didn't you help safeguard assets from Germany?"
Evita: Stares off to the left
Bill the CIA guy: "My father was with the Counter Intelligence Corps during WWII. He explained the Underground Railroad of escaping Nazis. They fled to Rome and were given Vatican passports. Then they traveled to many South American countries. Argentina was a major thoroughfare. Wasn't it?"
Evita: "Many people fled Europe after the war. I could not keep track of all the refugees. Their motives are a mystery to me."
Guard 1: "What significance does this have?"
Capt. Ron: "A great deal of significance my young friend. You fight for ideals. Leaders usually allow you to fight so that they can abscond with the wealth. Germany profited handsomely from the war. Think of it as the ultimate bank robbery. Central Bank gold and currency reserves for the taking."
Bill the CIA guy: "Oui, Oui mon capitan."
CHE: "The last thing a defeated army will surrender is what it has taken. I have read on the subject. The Nazis sent U-Boats filled with loot to Argentina. There were many shipments. Dear sweet Eva received them."
Bill the CIA guy: "Touche!"
CHE: "Of course dear sweet Eva wasn't satisfied with a mere commission on the greatest thefts in history, she stole the money from the thieves. Once Germany was defeated, there was no force behind the conspiracy."
Bill the CIA guy: "You whacked the Germans and kept most of the money for yourselves. War criminals couldn't take you to court. Shall I go through the list of names. Then the money was sent to the Swiss for safety. You set up a charitable foundation to masquerade the money laundering."
Evita: "That is all conjecture."
Bill the CIA guy: "Freude, Doerge, Von Leute, Staudt."
Evita: "I have never heard of these people. Who are they?"
Bill the CIA guy: "They were your fellow trustees. Now they are all dead."
Guards: "What became of the money?"
CHE: "That is not known precisely. I think we can be certain it doesn't help the poor. but Swiss banking laws preclude our finding out I'm afraid. The American occupation forces are said to have run the most corrupt administration known in human history. There were fights between the Counter Intelligence Corps and the O.S.S. Men died. Gold does terrible things to men."
Guard Sarah: "And women?"
Evita: "They get to wear nice dresses."
Guard 2: "To what end? How do you justify this?"
CHE: "There is no justification. At least there is no earthly explanation. Demons possess these people. It explains much however."
Bill the CIA guy: "Exactly. The High Commissioner for occupied Europe was John J. McCloy. The Swiss O.S.S. man was Allen Dulles. Champions of Justice allowed to sit on the Warren Commission. The battle of the century was the battle to control these funds. The people see the bodies fall and never understand the reason why."
Capt. Ron: "I learned the reason why. That is why they left me in Vietnam. Isn't it funny that so many authors perished trying to write the history of the Counter Intelligence Corps. Their history became a State secret. Robber barons control government that make the laws that control information."
Guard 2: "All for the common good no doubt."
Guard 1: "No doubt"
Guard Sarah: "Nice dress. We'll bury her in it."
CHE: "Comrades, the truth is our objective. Once the masses understand the nuances of history, they will be better about to decide their destiny. They won't be so easily manipulated. The whole raison d'etre of these intelligence agencies has been to use national security to masquerade the crimes of their members and their respective masters."
Evita: "You have quite interesting insights for filthy subversives."
Guard Sarah: "Filthy? We haven't stolen the teeth from helpless people. There are crimes that transcend any evil that could be imagined by the masses. I am only starting to comprehend the depth of this."
Bill the CIA guy: "Yes Sarah, they took everything, and then they killed anyone who got in their way. No matter who they were."
Capt. Ron: "This will be a blight on humanity until it is made right. Her execution couldn't do it. A revelation of Biblical proportions would be necessary if the masses would even listen to it now."
CHE: "They must listen. Even if we have to force them to. Take her away. It is too difficult to be near her and restrain oneself. That such a terrible war could have been fought for so long at such cost only to have the loot taken again disgusts me. We will never cry for you Argentina. You received your penance. All the gold in the world couldn't stop you from passing away. Did you succumb to blind ambition or did you get your just reward from your cohorts like many that have preceded you."
Evita: "They couldn't. They wouldn't. They loved me."
Guard Sarah: "No Eva, they loved their gold, and they needed to protect their secret. You were expendable. You came from the dirt just like us. They use your kind. We understand. That is why the revolution is so precious. The struggle can never end."
Bastille Chick: "The Revolution."
Guards: "Viva la revolution. Viva El Commandante Gringo."
Bastille Chick: "Never forget us. Fraternite, Egalite, Liberte."
Guard Sarah: "We will never forget. We will learn what ever it takes. We will defeat them."
The scene ends with the guitarist playing 'Don't cry for me Argentina.' The camera fades away.
