Quiz: What movie is this line from?

2,061 posts in this topic

It was *Rear Window*, the man James Stewart, the woman Grace Kelly...

 

Your quote is still up:

 

"What am I doing in a pile of snow in the middle of the night, that's what I'd like to know?!"

I don't know what that quote is from, but I have to insert here that Thelma Ritter has all the best lines in Rear Window--she stole that movie right from under everyone's feet.

CharlieT, this one's bugging me -- I don't have a clue...Does anyone else know the quote?

"What am I doing in a pile of snow in the middle of the night, that's what I'd like to know?!"

OK, later in the same scene:

 

1st speaker: "I want to look in the window."

 

2nd speaker: "It will cost you nothing... which I am sure will be good news to you."

 

1st speaker: "Will they be able to see me?"

 

2nd speaker: "No... which I am sure would be good news to them."

I thought it might be from *Mr. & Mrs. Smith* (1941) but that's as close as I could get...what is it from?

Give it a little time. If no one's gotten it by tomorrow, I'll give a give-away clue (if I haven't already with the last one).

I've got it, CharlieT. It's from *Scrooge* (1970), and the last lines you gave were between Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Present... right?

Yep. It happened right outside "the lavish home of Robert Cratchit, Esquire."

 

Carry on, my good man!

It's James Stewart in *Two Road Together* (with Richard Widmark, they are *so* good together) as Marshall McCabe.

Oops...forgot to post - here's a timely one...

I believe that is from Twelve Angry Men

 

If so, how about, "Don't be a Luddy Duddy. Don't be a Moon Calf. Don't be a Jabbernowl."

WC Fields' The Bank Dick

 

How about

"When I find myself in a position like this, I ask myself what would General Motors do? And then I do the opposite!"

(1938)

I guess the last response was correct (Mr. 6s' has not verified). So while we're waiting, try to identify this one. " Well, what family doesn't have its ups and downs." It is one of my all-time favorite movies. Alan Smithee
