  1. Bio-47’s 2008 once very popular thread “My Favorite Line From A Movie”: June 6. 2021 As I do every year, I am reminding the Community that 77 years ago thousands of young kids stormed the beaches of Normandy and gave 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 (referenced 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 w
  2. Let's face it. Screwball comedies didn't have much plot, and even so, this rises above a screwball comedy. But Schildkraut's performance alone makes it worth watching every year! --Gus Cerini
  3. One of my favorite Christmas movies is “The Cheaters”, a 1945 Republic movie which was a TV staple in the ‘60s and 70’s that I watched every Christmas Eve. Since then I believe it has been shown only once, a few years ago by TCM. It is a delightful screwball comedy featuring Joseph Schildkraut, Ona Munson, Billie Burke and Eugene Pallette. Schildkraut plays the role of a former actor, now a down and out drunk, who, in a stirring monologue, teaches the family the true meaning of Christmas. Here is Ben Mankiewicz introducing the movie the last time it was shown: https://www.tcm.com
  4. From the great unforgettable 1942 tear jerker: "You might even have met her, Charles. Met her and not known her. It might be someone you know, Charles. It might... it might even be me." --Gus Cerini
  5. Two quotes from a 1942 truly classic film: "What was it he said? If I were to meet a fighter, I was to... I'd love to go with you, Mr. Murdock." "So long, Champ." --Gus Cerini
  6. From a 1946 winner of 7 Oscars: "I'd stand up for you, kid, til I drop." --Gus Cerini
  7. From a 1946 tear jerker with an Oscar winning performance: "I think this is our dance, mother" --Gus Cerini
  8. Bio-47’s 2008 once very popular thread “My Favorite Line From A Movie”: June 6. 2020 As I remind the Community every year, please remember that 76 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 (referenced 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 everywhe
  9. How about TCM giving us a Christmas treat by once again showing "The Cheaters", a 1945 film that was shown years ago after many repeated requests by me and others.
  10. From a great classic scene: "I'll hum it for you."
  11. A classic line, from a classic scene, in a true classic: "Welcome to Sherwood, My Lady"
  12. 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."
  13. 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 pray
  14. Bio-47’s thread Lest we forget the debt we owe to those young kids, who, 74 years ago, gave up their lives so that we could enjoy the freedom we have today. 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 wa
  15. 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?
