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.

Lauren Bacall

“I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.”
The cat-like eyes Lauren Bacall doesn’t want her to be branded as a legend because she believes that a legend is tangled in the past. With husky voice and sultry looks, the Confidential Agent silver screen temptress was crowned Miss Greenwich Village in 1942 and hailed on the 6th place as one of the Sexiest Stars in film history by the 1995 Empire Magazine.

Vivien Leigh

“Actresses go on for a long time and there are always marvelous parts to play.”
She got her second Oscar award as Best Actress for interpreting Blanche Dubois in 1951 film A Streetcar Named Desire. According to film memoire in the Hollywood archive, she used one of her Academy Award trophies to doorstop her lavatory. Just like Audrey Hepburn, the beautiful one-eyebrow raising Vivien Leigh was a chain smoker, wheezing almost four cartons of cigar a day during the shooting of Gone with the Wind in 1939. Vivien Leigh was diagnosed with manic depressive disorder.
