FAMOUS MOVIE QUOTES


Recommended Posts

Enough.

 

Character actor Ed Grady had that speech as "Judge Marcus" in 1994's *A Simple Twist Of Fate*. The story was filmed some six times with the title of the origional novel, *Silas Marner*, starting in the Silents era. This version brings the story into the 20th Century, and re-locates it to an American community. It does not use the origional character names. For this outing, a stolen horse becomes a stolen sports car, but the changing water level still reveals a corpse, stolen savings, and the remains of the car. The lonely recluse whose life was turned around after he reared a foundling orphan gets to keep the child. The wealthy man who spent years concealing paternity loses.

"I won't work for _any_ man after he fires me!"

 

Who? Film?

Early 60s comedy. The speaker is an actress who did her best work in melodrama, but in this script she's paired off with a star who is at home with zippy one-liners. It's his type of script.

Chief Dan George in LITTLE BIG MAN. He has just performed his "It's a good day to die" ceremony for Jack Crabb (Dustin Hoffman). After the ceremony, Jack informs him that he has not died. Dan George makes a comically frustrated face, and says "I was afraid of that. Sometimes the magic works . . ." Great scene.

 

 

 

Next line:

 

 

"People scare better when they're dyin'."

 

 

Actor? Film?

Two very good guesses, and one of them is correct: Henry Fonda in ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST is the winning answer. Oddly, for a movie with so little dialogue, much of it is highly quotable.

Nicely done, 6's. Your thread. . .

Same film, same speaker:

 

"They'll lose their fear of the Germans. I only hope to God they never lose their fear of me."

 

Aw, come on!
