Salient Movie Lines from the Golden Age to Impart Surefire Love on V-Day eCards

13 Feb

eCardsAre you tired of searching out of the ordinary goodies for your loved one? Well, instead of the luxury Swiss chocolates and traditional red roses. These are just some infallible feelings mustered from classic films to supplement and transcribe on eCards for the feast of Saint Valentine.

She Done Him Wrong (1933)
Captain Cummings: Haven’t you ever met a man that could make you happy?

Gone with the Wind (1939)
Rhett Butler: I’ve loved you more than I’ve ever loved any woman and I’ve waited for you longer than I’ve ever waited for any woman.

Yet another, Rhett’s line
“Forgive me for startling you with the impetuosity of my sentiments… But it cannot have escaped your notice that for some time past the friendship I have felt for you has ripened into a deeper feeling. A feeling more beautiful, more pure, more sacred. Dare I name it? Can it be love?”

The Philadelphia Story (1940)
Tracy Lord: I don’t want to be worshipped. I want to be loved.

And when her father enlightens the wealthy socialite…
Seth Lord: You have everything it takes to make a lovely woman except the one essential: an understanding heart. And without that you might just as well be made of bronze.

Casablanca (1942)
Ilsa: With the whole world crumbling, we pick this time to fall in love.

To Have and Have Not (1944)
[While Marie “Slim” Browning kisses Harry “Steve” Morgan]
Slim: It’s even better when you help.

Notorious (1946)
Alicia: There’s nothing like a love song to give you a good laugh.

A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
Blanche DuBois: Astrological sign. I’ll bet you were born under Aries. Aries people are forceful, dynamic, they dote on noise. They love to bang things around.

Love Story (1970)
Oliver Barrett IV: Love means never having to say you’re sorry.


Glorious Quotes from Classic Hollywood Actors

27 Apr

Just like the previous post, I’ve compiled my preferred actors from the Hollywood’s Golden Age and their notable unwritten citations regarding their impeccable existence as a public figure.

Henry Fonda
One-Take Fonda

“If there is something in my eyes, a kind of honesty in the face, then I guess you could say that’s the man I’d like to be, the man I want to be.”

James Cagney
The Professional Againster

“There’s not much to say about acting but this. Never settle back on your heels. Never relax. If you relax, the audience relaxes. And always mean everything you say.”

Marlon Brando
The Pioneer of Method Acting

“I don’t think it’s the nature of any man to be monogamous. Men are propelled by genetically ordained impulses over which they have no control to distribute their seed.”

Paul Newman
The Gravelly Voice Classic Actor

“I can say fairly safely that I didn’t really know much about acting until I got to be in my fifties.”

Spencer Tracy
The Man with Lopsided Fedora Hat

“I couldn’t be a director because I couldn’t put up with the actors. I don’t have the patience. Why, I’d probably kill the actors. Not to mention some of the beautiful actresses.” 

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?”
