  1. 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 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
  2. 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.
  3. From a great classic scene: "I'll hum it for you."
  4. A classic line, from a classic scene, in a true classic: "Welcome to Sherwood, My Lady"
  5. 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."
  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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?

  11. Dear Casablanca100views: Don’t have any Veuve Clicquot around, but will join you with a champagne cocktail on Wednesday. Hope others will join in too. --Gus Cerini
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Casablanca100views: Great, great, post! Always wondered what they were saying to each other. Never any problem finding a quotable line from "Hollywood's Masterpiece", but translating one is really an original idea. --Gus Cerini
