In 1868, an American scientist and his team become hostages of fanatical pacifist Robur who uses his airship Albatross to destroy military targets on Earth.
I admire you, Mr. Strock. You do what you feel you must do without caring whether you alienate anyone or whether they understand you or not. That is my way. That is the only way for a man of dedication. I know that you would like to stop me, sir. ...
Robur dangles Strock and Evans from the Albatross dirigible on ropes as a punishment. A storm comes, he clearly sees that, but insists to crew-members that the punishment still continue as he leaves for the bridge to tackle the storm. The storm duly tackled, he then "suddenly" remembers that he has left the two men dangling throughout the storm - but logically he knew that all along by ensuring that the punishment still continue on seeing the storm begin.
