Sunup til Midnight is long enough to wait. The "rich man" line was Walter Burke to James Garner

in The Wheeler-Dealers.

 

Maybe this one will be easier:

 

"My career was cut short by a woman and a bank. She developed a taste for bonded bourbon;

I robbed a bank."

You nailed it, daneldorado. Mickey Shaughnessy to Elvis Presley. It is now your turn give a quote of your own. Take it away!

Okay, why not try this one:

 

"Do you remember Mr. Craverly? The biology teacher? Aw, it's terrible what happened to him. He went to this party and he met this girl. And she seemed kind of tired, sick maybe...."

 

Name the movie, and the speaker of the quote.

 

Cheers,

Dan

Nobody? Okay, if it helps, the "Mr. Craverly" in the quote ends up taking the girl home with him, and they spend the night.

 

That should light a few bulbs.

Still no answers? Can't be that tough. Okay, some more clues:

 

This film was made in the late 20th century. And it involves the talents of FIVE (5) Oscar winners, plus two (2) Oscar nominees.

 

Name the film, and the speaker of the quote.

 

Cheers,

The movie is Postcards From the Edge and the speaker is Dennis Quaid playing Jack Faulkner.

 

I wanted to answer sooner but I couldn't come up with another quote!!! Try this one:

 

"You be the host. It's your party. Happy birthday, welcome home, and we who are about to die salute you."

Groucho Marx, in "Duck Soup" (1933).

Assuming my answer was right, here's a new quote for you:

 

"A career is just fine, but it's no substitute for marriage. Don't you think a man is the most important thing in the world? A woman isn't a woman until she's been married and has children."

 

Who said that, and in what film?

 

Cheers,

Dan

A gust of wind to fan my hate;

A thunderbolt to mix it well'

And now begin thy magic spell-

My hands My hands

My voice My voice

 

 

 

I'm guessing: "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937).

 

Cheers,

Dan

i have a question. the quote is in regards to the usage of the term "indian sign." i've heard it used by bogie in "the big sleep" and recently joan crawford in "the woman." i'm guessing it's something to do w/bad luck or a jinx of sorts. any suggestions? :)

Now let me see , it must be something never seen before,a spell that would change my Queenly arraingment into a peddlers cloak--Ah! here it is-this spell can only be broken by loves first kiss.

to age my voice; an old hags cackle

to whiten my hair ; a scream of fright.......
