  1. Thank you, Glen Campbell, for making this timeless.
  2. The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) Al Stephenson: You see, Mr. Milton, in the Army I've had to be with men when they were stripped of everything in the way of property except what they carried around with them and inside them. I saw them being tested. Now some of them stood up to it and some didn't. But you got so you could tell which ones you could count on. I tell you this man Novak is okay. His 'collateral' is in his hands, in his heart and his guts. It's in his right as a citizen.
  3. Citizen Kane Mr. Bernstein: A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl.
  4. All About Eve (1950) Margo Channing: Bill's thirty-two. He looks thirty-two. He looked it five years ago, he'll look it twenty years from now. I hate men.
  5. All About Eve (1950) Margo Channing: Funny business, a woman's career - the things you drop on your way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you'll need them again when you get back to being a woman. That's one career all females have in common, whether we like it or not: being a woman. Sooner or later, we've got to work at it, no matter how many other careers we've had or wanted. And in the last analysis, nothing's any good unless you can look up just before dinner or turn around in bed, and there he is. Without that, you're not a woman. You're something with a French provinc
  6. Susan: Phoebe, if a herring and a half costs three hey-pence, how many for eleven pence? Phoebe: Eleven. Susan: William Smith says it's fifteen and he's such a big boy. Do you think I ought to contradict him? May I suggest that there are differences of opinion about it? One can't be really sure, Phoebe. Phoebe: It is eleven. I once worked it out with real herrings. Quality Street (1937)
  7. Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.
  8. Mrs. Green: You know something, Phil? I suddenly want to live to be very old. Very. I want to be around to see what happens. The world is stirring in very strange ways. Maybe this is the century for it. Maybe that's why it's so troubled. Other centuries had their driving forces. What will ours have been when men look back? Maybe it won't be the American century after all... or the Russian century or the atomic century. Wouldn't it be wonderful... if it turned out to be everybody's century... when people all over the world - free people - found a way to live together? I'd like to be around to
  9. Phil Green: They are more than nasty little snobs, Kathy. You call them that, and you can dismiss them; it's too easy. They're persistent little traitors to everything that this country stands for, and stands on and you have to fight 'em! Not just for the 'poor, poor Jews,' as Dave says, but for everything this country stands for. ************** Kathy: You think I'm an anti-Semite. Phil Green: No, I don't. But I've come to see lots of nice people who hate it and deplore it and protest their own innocence, then help it along and wonder why it grows. People who would never beat up a Jew.
  10. Giving Thanks. Sam and Dave and Soul Survivors -- I Thank You
  11. You think you're past it, then it happens all over again. Gentlemen's Agreement (1947) Schuyler (Phil) Green (Gregory Peck) creates his own drama by claiming to be Jewish to see the effects of antisemitism in society. I have seen this drama many times before, but it is deep enough that other details come out with repeated viewings. * The private story/public story angle: The movie opens with Phil having misgivings about taking on a big assignment and we see his interactions with his own mother (Ann Revere) and his fears of having her not being around for support for him and
  12. Laundry day today, so it was a double feature of two previously unseen movies LOUISA (1950) A Rom-Com for the over-60 set. I found it absolutely delightful. Spring Byington in the title role who's living with son Ronald Reagan and his family. Louisa gets fought over romantically by charming grocer Henry Hammond (Edmund Gwenn) and Type-A tycoon (and Ronnie's boss) Abel Burnside (Charles Coburn). The guys are wonderful as immature cut-ups and Louisa's teen-aged granddaughter, Cathy (Piper Laurie, in her screen debut) her brilliant geek boyfriend Jimmy,(Scotty Beckett) are a great
  13. I am going to watch THE PARENT TRAP again to test my supposition about the interior sets of both of these phenomenal houses. I will look to see if the ceilings look partial or not. In the movie location listing it didn't reference a house and this case I think it would have. At the studios, they can do anything and crafting a Coastal Live Oak from castings or creating leaves on a felled one, it would have been done. They did a lot at the Disney Golden Oak Ranch near Simi Valley, their busy back lot. If anyone has been there, maybe they can enlighten us about that.
  14. Back to PARENT TRAP interiors. With the lighting and the shooting schedule (even with youngsters) it would be hard to join the takes throughout the day. I would say it's a well-crafted indoor/outdoor set on a soundstage. It is all in an interior set, with "filtered sunlight" illuminating through the windows "outside." I also notice in the photo it appears there's a secondary cooktop under the wall ovens in the brick, or it could just be a ledge. I love the movie has Una Merkel in it. She's always been a favorite of mine.
