Some of my favourite lines from THE GUNS OR NAVARONE:

 

 

"Somebody's *got* to take responsibility if the job's going to get done, do you think that's easy?"

- Captain Mallory in THE GUNS OF NAVARONE to Corporal Miller

 

 

"I've inspected this vessel, and I think you ought to know that, ah, I can't swim.'

 

"I'll keep it in mind".

- Miller to Mallory who then answers.


Peter Fonda and Gregory Peck are my heroes.

Cold are the hands of time that creep along relentlessly, destroying slowly but without pity that which yesterday was young. Alone our memories resist this disintegration and grow more lovely with the passing years. Heh! That's hard to say with false teeth!

When the weak are also cruel, we should beware of them, my friend. The weak know how to use their power. They have soft, white hands with which to squeeze and squeeze.

If love is right, it is the most precious gift in the world. But you must be sure, very sure, that it is right. For if it isn't, there is no worse agony, nothing more bitter, nothing more lonely to be imagined.

Barbara Marshall: [in tears] Mary, I... Mary, I... I'm so ashamed. Please forgive me. I love you, Mary, and I wouldn't want to hurt you, not for anything. I understand something... I understand something now that I never knew before, that you can make a mistake, do something dreadful, without meaning to... Oh, Mary!

 

I'll Be Seeing You (1944)

 

 

Bridget 'Brig' Hilton: [in tears] . . I pray the Lord my soul to take. And God bless Pop, and mother, and Jane. and Fidelia, and Uncle Tony, and Soda. And please God, make Pop safe. Oh, i know he is safe -- you wouldn't let anything happen to him. But Please, make him safe anyway. Amen.

Addie Ross: [off voice] Maybe it's because if you girls didn't talk about me you wouldn't talk at all.

Eliza Doolittle: Didn't ah sy that?

Professor Henry Higgins: No, Eliza, you didn't "sy" that, you didn't even "say" that. Now every night before you get into bed, where you used to say your prayers, I want you to say "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain" fifty times. You'll get much further with the Lord if you learn not to offend His ears.

 

-My Fair Lady (1964)

There are so many great quotes in this film, but this is definitely one that sticks out to me. Also, this one from Bette Davis' film Now Voyager:

 

Don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars. (Now Voyager; 1942)

Sorry, gang; I fell asleep before posting on Dec 2nd. But I will tell you how Casablanca ends.

 

Rick:  Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. 

 

I always watch the whole thing.  Love it.

Bio 47’s thread

 

 

First Woman     Will you ask Rick if he'll have a drink with us?

Carl                    Madame, he never drinks with customers. Never. I have never seen him.

 

--Hollywood’s Masterpiece

 

I want to remind everyone that December 2 is the 70th anniversary of the story's beginning as first noted by Casablancalover in her post on Veterans' Day, 2007 (page 20 of the old Casablanca thread) because Rick can be seen endorsing a check dated “2 Decembre 41”. This is five days before Pearl Harbor and America’s entry into the war.

 

I try to watch it on that date every year and in the past often asked TCM to show it on that date. But I have no beef. They show it often during the year.

 

--Gus Cerini

 

Oh dear, Gus.  I was just mentioning the death of old threads (let them lie) on General topics but I am glad you brought up December 2nd.  It's this Wednesday and I will be watching Casablanca (with a Kir Royale or Chambord+Champagne created cocktail of my own) in celebration and reverence of the love story wrapped in the ugliness of war, set in a city filled with refugees, desperate and still trying to retain their dignity. 

 

See you here Wednesday.

Casablanca premiered on November 26, 1942, in New York. 

 

With the coming of the Second World War, many eyes in imprisoned Europe turned hopefully, or desperately, toward the freedom of the Americas. Lisbon became the great embarkation point. But, not everybody could get to Lisbon directly, and so a tortuous, roundabout refugee trail sprang up - Paris to Marseilles... across the Mediterranean to Oran... then by train, or auto, or foot across the rim of Africa, to Casablanca in French Morocco. Here, the fortunate ones through money, or influence, or luck, might obtain exit visas and scurry to Lisbon; and from Lisbon, to the New World. But the others wait in Casablanca... and wait... and wait... and wait.

Casablanca100:

 

Can’t place that quote, but for some reason it immediately reminded me of what Bogie (Dixon Steele) says in “In a Lonely Place”:

 

I was born when she kissed me. I died when she left me. I lived a few weeks while she loved me.
