Truly Treasured Movie Lines in Five Classic Films that I Fancy Most

31 May

Yet again, it feels like I love watching my five sought after flicks from the Golden Age once more. And I’ve bunched up here the most cherished quotes and dialogues relating to my all time fave classic movies. I hope you’ll also enjoy my favorites!

It Happened One Night (1934)
Starring: Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert
Two great paramours of the silver screen in the magnificent of idealistic rom-comedies!

Ellie Andrews: Have you ever been in love, Peter?
Peter Warne: Me?
Ellie Andrews: Yes. Haven’t you ever thought about it at all? It seems to me you, you could make some girl wonderfully happy.
Peter Warne: Sure I’ve thought about it. Who hasn’t? If I could ever meet the right sort of girl. Aw, where you gonna find her? Somebody that’s real. Somebody that’s alive. They don’t come that way anymore. Have I ever thought about it? I’ve even been sucker enough to make plans. You know, I saw an island in the Pacific once. I’ve never been able to forget it. That’s where I’d like to take her. She’d have to be the sort of a girl who’d… well, who’d jump in the surf with me and love it as much as I did. You know, nights when you and the moon and the water all become one. You feel you’re part of something big and marvelous. That’s the only place to live… where the stars are so close over your head you feel you could reach up and stir them around. Certainly, I’ve been thinking about it. Boy, if I could ever find a girl who was hungry for those things…
Ellie Andrews: Take me with you, Peter. Take me to your island. I want to do all those things you talked about.

Philadelphia Story (1940)
Starring: Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn and James Stewart
Broadway’s breathtaking year-run comedy blockbuster of the supercilious civilization of splendor who glided and fell – in L.O.V.E!

C. K. Dexter Haven: The moon is also a goddess, chaste and virginal.
Tracy Lord: Stop using those foul words.

A Letter to Three Wives (1949)
Starring: Ejane Crain, Linda Darell, and Anne Sothern
This is a tale of three people who wonders a lot and a man who wanders around.

Porter Hollingsway: It’s a man’s world. Yeah! See something you want, go after it and get it! That’s nature. It’s why we’re made strong and women weak. Strong conquer and provide for the weak. That’s what a man’s for! Teach our kids that, there’d be more men!

All About Eve (1950)
Starring: Bette Davis, Anne Baxter and George Sanders
More or less it’s about women–and their gents!

Addison DeWitt: That I should want you at all suddenly strikes me as the height of improbability. But that in itself is probably the reason: You’re an improbable person, Eve, and so am I. We have that in common. Also our contempt for humanity and inability to love and be loved, insatiable ambition, and talent. We deserve each other.

Some Like it Hot (1959)
There are no precise words to describe her hotness.
Starring: Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon

Sugar:  I don’t care how rich he is, as long as he has a yacht, his own private railroad car, and his own toothpaste.


Illustrious Quotes from Classic Hollywood Actresses

12 Feb

In point of fact, I am amazed by actresses from the Hollywood’s Golden Age who are entertaining yet really clever to answer and express themselves truthfully in the sphere of film archive and mass media.  So, I rustle up a shortlist of my favorite silver screen Mademoiselles along with their remarkable speech marks about their prestige life and apprehensions in movie industry.

Greta Garbo
The Swedish Sphinx

“Being a movie star, and this applies to all of them, means being looked at from every possible direction. You are never left at peace, you’re just fair game.”

Katharine Hepburn
First Lady of Cinema

“Life can be wildly tragic at times, and I’ve had my share. But whatever happens to you, you have to keep a slightly comic attitude. In the final analysis, you have got not to forget to laugh.”

Lucille Ball
The First Lady of Television

“Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead.”

Ginger Rogers
The Hollywood’s Highest Paid Star of 1942

“Intelligence, adaptability and talent. And by talent I mean the capacity for hard work. Lots of girls come here with little but good looks. Beauty is a valuable asset, but it is not the whole cheese.”

Myrna Loy
Queen of Hollywood

“Why does every black person in the movies have to play a servant? How about a black person walking up the steps of a courthouse carrying a briefcase?”
