FAMOUS MOVIE QUOTES

"Oh I know that and I can't place it... shot in the dark----Mildred Pierce perhaps?"

 

 

Sorry, LP. It's not "Mildred Pierce."

 

However, the woman in the quote is played by an Oscar-winning actress, just as Mildred Pierce was.

 

Here's the quote again:

 

"Oh God, please don't let her die. She's wicked, but I love her."

 

Who spoke that line, and in what film? For extra credit, name the Oscar-winning actress who played the "wicked" woman.

 

Cheers,

Dan

Sorry, jenwhy... it's not "The Primrose Path" (1940).

 

To help you come up with the correct answer, consider all the words in the quote.

 

Here's the quote again:

 

"Oh God, please don't let her die. She's wicked, but I love her."

 

First of all, the speaker is playing a man with a spiritual background. He's praying to God, petitioning Heaven to save the girl he loves.

 

Second, he loves her although he seems to know she's "no good."

 

And if it will help you, I will add one more clue:

 

This movie is a COMEDY, not a drama. Name the film title and the speaker. Extra points for naming the actress who plays the "wicked" girl.

 

Cheers,

Dan

Yo, Cheerful Dan:

 

I don't recognize this one, but it has gotten my interest. As far as I can learn from research, none of the stories about Sadie Thompson ( *Rain* , etc) qualify as comedy. *Irma la Douce* doesn't have a death-threat feature, as I remember. Polly Adler ( *A House Is Not A Home* ) also doesn't seem to fit.

 

Wild guess: Did something like that turn up after Shirley Jones was beaten up in *The Cheyenne Social Club* ?

Sorry, cmvgor... It isn't Shirley Jones in either film.

 

You guys sound like my question has been on the board forever. But it's been ONLY TWO DAYS!

 

Okay, here's another clue:

 

The actor who speaks the line was married to an Oscar winner, and was brother-in-law to another Oscar winner.

 

Here's the quote, again:

 

 

"Oh, God... Please don't let her die. She's wicked, but I love her."

 

Who said it, and in what movie?

 

Cheers,

Dan

Okay, here's a good one.

 

"Oh God, please don't let her die. She's wicked, but I love her."

 

Couldn't have been said, in more than the one movie. Name the film, and the speaker.

 

I've had this question up on the board for five (5) days now, so I'm bumping it to keep it from disappearing completely.

 

So far, we have established that the actress in question is not Shirley Jones. We also know now that the speaker was played by an actor who was married to an Academy Award winner, and was brother-in-law to another Academy Award winner.

 

Who spoke that line, and in what film?

 

Cheers,

Dan

If it's been _that_ long, do you want to give any more clues, or just put us out of our misery and give the answer?

you can then pose another quote, if you wish, just to keep the thread moving.

A: "... you talk to her. Explain that she's not the one for Don."

B:" I did."

A:" What did she say? "

B:" Oh, an assortment of things. Almonds, pecans, filberts, walnuts. "

A:" She'd probably say the same thing to me if I talked to her."

B: "Yeah, only in one word."
