Yes.  

 

When asked what film was his favorite to make, James Garner said "The Americanization of Emily".

Can't blame him, it's one of my favorites too.

 

flashback 42, the thread is yours.

Thanks, KarmaGirl.  I'm rather fond of The Wheeler Dealers myself.  Next up:

"When he was a kid, Aldo must have wanted to be a Suspect when he grew up."

 

Film?  Speaker?

This speech passes between two detectives who indeed have reason to have "Aldo" under surveillance.

Early 1980s film.  The speaker, in a long career, has had two series gigs in the role of an authority figure who directs the actions of others in Law-related activities.  His partner is played by a Black actor who has also had a long career, that has included Award-winning performances.

Correct, KarmaGirl.

 

 Stephen Hill, relatively youthful at this filming, went on to become the first honcho (before Peter Brown) of the "Mission Impossible" force.  He also did a long stretch as the Boss DA on Law and Order.  His partner, Morgan Freeman, also did other top detective work, and he drove Miss Daisy for the Secret Service.   "Aldo" was a very young James Woods, with hippie-type, shoulder-length hair. 

 

KarmaGirl's thread.

OK, here goes.

 

"I was tempted to stab her in the back, but I was afraid that the cake knife wasn't sharp enough"

 

Quote was spoken by a famous actress in a comedy.

 

Name her and the film, please.

 

-more hints, or answer??
