    Favorite Line From a Movie

    I can’t find Bio-47’s 2008 once very popular thread “My Favorite Line From A Movie” or the one reactivated by Swithin in 2014, so I am posting this here: 75 years ago thousands of mostly young kids stormed the beaches of Normandy giving up their lives so that we could enjoy the freedom we have today. Let us never forget! General Dwight D. Eisenhower's D-Day Speech (featured in "The Longest Day"): “You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely. But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory! I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.” --Gus Cerini

    In a magnificently acted scene: "Having done enough to win the Victoria Cross, he lays me down outside the camp and calmly begins to rob me."

    I haven’t been on these boards for a long time except for my annual D-Day post. What’s going on with “Favorite Line From Movie”? I really had to search to find it, there hasn’t been a post for over 5 months. This was a thread started by Bio47 (Robert Michael) in 2008, and reactivated by Swithin in April, 2014. It was an extremely popular thread. Here’s a favorite line: “There was a girl...” Anyone?

    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

    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. --Gus Cerini

    Favorite Line from Movie

    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. --Gus Cerini

    Here is a favorite dialogue from the ending of a 1941 classic that always chokes me up: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0033712/?ref_=nv_sr_5 Ralph Murdock (Bruce Farnsworth/Joe Pendleton) bumps into Bette Logan in the stadium: Ralph: Excuse me. Bette: I’m sorry. You lookin’ for somebody? Yes, Mr. Corkle. They said he might be in Mr. Murdock’s dressing room. Don’t I know you? I don’t think so. No. I guess I thought for a minute I did. Funny, sometimes you feel you know people. Yes. Is that the way to the dressing room? Yeah. Did you like the fight? I didn’t see it. Oh. But I heard it on the.....your eye is hurt. Oh, it’s nothing, it’s just a little swollen. It’s all red. It doesn’t hurt. I’m Murdock. Oh. Ralph Murdock. And you’re, uh? Logan, Bette Logan Hello. How do you do? Glad to know you. You interested in the fight game? I knew a man who was. Do I know him? Bruce Farnsworth. Oh, yeah, they were telling me about him. He was killed. Yes. I'm sorry. Was he a friend of yours? I loved him. That's too bad. Yes, but I don't know why...Maybe it was the kindest thing. He was so troubled. I...I don't seem to feel... Bette reaches for his bandage What did you do that for? Your bandage was loose....I didn't mean to. Well, it felt kind of good. You know you were looking at me just now. You were kinda lookin’ right through my eyes. Lights go out What’s that? Oh, don't be scared. It's just a warning. All lights out. In the darkness, your voice sounded like I'd heard it someplace before. I couldn't remember where. You didn't feel that, did you? Well, yes. I felt I was standing high up looking out over the sea...and someone was swimming toward me, shouting something. Something I felt I'd heard long ago. And I said, "Don't be scared." Oh, did you? People are always thinking they knew someone before...in another existence. You know I had a feeling tonight I was in a hurry to meet somebody I knew. There’s a little place around the corner. Nice little place called Mike’s where I go after the fight. You wouldn’t want to...No, I guess you wouldn’t want to tonight feeling the way you do about him. I guess not, huh? What was it he said? If I was to meet a fighter, I was to....I’d love to go with you, Mr. Murdock! --Gus Cerini

  17. It?s a 1940?s movie with an Arabian setting in Technicolor. Shortly after the movie starts a slave auction is being conducted as background setting rather than as a part of the plot. A woman is on the block being offered for sale. The bids are not as high as expected, so the auctioneer rips her top off in order to get a higher bid. Back then I was young and impressionable, and that scene has stayed with me. For years, I thought it belonged to ?The Thief of Bagdad?, but I did not see it in the restored print TCM showed. Then I thought it might be from ?Sinbad the Sailor?, but I did not see it in a recent airing. I?ve given up trying to identify it by looking at films of this genre from the 40?s, and am now asking for help. Do any of you who are my contemporaries (or any of you younger, but informed, classic film mavens) remember seeing this scene and, if so, what the title of the movie was? --Gus Cerini
  18. Fred: Thanks for the clip link. That looks like it could be the scene I remember. After so many years, memory fills in images that weren?t originally there. I?ll have to watch the movie to know for sure. Again I want to thank mrsprof, Ray, and you. I knew that I?d get an answer from the posters on these boards. --Gus Cerini
  19. Many thanks. I'll check it out. Thomas Gomez certainly fits the part of the auctioneer, I knew that some article of clothing was whisked away from the girl, but I don't remember the girl holding a knife. However, it's been many years since I've seen the movie. --Gus Cerini
  20. They are good suggestions. I should have checked with you, but thought you were too young to know! Thanks for the BD wishes, I didn't know you still watched these Boards. --Gus Cerini
  21. Hold on guys. As the top was being pulled off, they cut to a shot of the woman from the shoulders up, as you would expect in a 1940's film. --Gus Cerini

I agree completely with your statement and for that reason see no need to defend a masterpiece that needs no defense. --Gus Cerini
  23. I'm getting the feeling that this is a chick thread! --Gus Cerini
  24. After watching *Sabrina* this morning, I thought that would qualify? If you mean "he-man" as the viewer, I'm sure most of us, especially we older ones, would enjoy watching Bogie not only trying _unsuccessfully_ to avoid a romance with a 25 year old, but at the same time, trying to get to the end of the film. --Gus Cerini
  25. On second thought, if you mean he-men, probably not "Marty". --Gus Cerini
