Deborah Bishop: Why is it that sooner or later no matter what we talk about we wind up talking about Addie Ross?

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.

Every day I hoped to love you a little less and every night my breaking heart would love you more.

From IMDB:

 

Newspaper reporter: [speaking of Col. Thursday] But what of the men who died with him? What of Collingworth and...

Captain Yorke: Collingwood.

Newspaper reporter: Oh, of course, Collingwood.

Reporter: That's the ironic part of it. We always remember the Thursdays, but the others are forgotten.

Captain Yorke: You're wrong there. They aren't forgotten because they haven't died. They're living - right out there.

[points out the window]

Captain Yorke: Collingwood and the rest. And they'll keep on living as long as the regiment lives. The pay is thirteen dollars a month; their diet: beans and hay. Maybe horsemeat before this campaign is over. Fight over cards or rotgut whiskey, but share the last drop in their canteens. The faces may change... the names... but they're there: they're the regiment... the regular army... now and fifty years from now. They're better men than they used to be. Thursday did that. He made it a command to be proud of.

Can somebody please download the words to the final scene from Fort Apache where John Wayne as Captain York gives the press that monologue about the "Regular Army" and how it will still be the same "50 years from now" which is now 150?  I just heard it on Encore but it went too fast for me to write down.  It's perfect for today.  HAPPY VETERANS DAY to all it applies to; our family counts twelve.
