FAMOUS MOVIE QUOTES


Recommended Posts

Thanks, Phroso.... Quote from a great movie:

 

" Well, a woman can change better'n a man. A man lives sorta--well, in jerks. Baby's born or somebody dies, and that's a jerk. He gets a farm or loses it, and that's a jerk. With a woman, it's all in one flow, like a stream--little eddies and waterfalls-- but the river, it goes right on. Woman looks at it that way.."

Nope. Not Edna Mae Oliver either. But the speaker won the best supporting actress Oscar and the director also won the Oscar for this film...so it's a big production....and it's related to Drums Along The Mohawk in another way...if you know what I mean...

Thanks, mudski...

 

Here is a line you guys probably remember:

 

 

 

"Hello? I've got to talk to the Governor. (Pause) Well, I'm afraid you'll have to wake him, then."

 

 

 

Who said that line, and in what film?

 

 

Hint: It is spoken by an Academy-Award winning actor.

 

Cheers,

Dan

It seems like somebody's trying to prevent someone from sitting on the electric chair.

 

 

Yes, the speaker is a police captain who has just received solid evidence that the condemned man is in fact innocence. He is due to die in the gas chamber within the hour. So, the officer's call to the governor is urgent.

 

Who is the speaker, and what is the movie?

 

Remember the hint: The speaker is played by an Oscar-winning actor.

 

Cheers,

Dan

No, not Tom Hanks in "The Green Mile" (1999).

 

 

New clue: The film in question was made in the 1940s.

 

"Hello? I've got to talk to the Governor. (Pause) Well, I'm afraid you'll have to wake him, then."

 

Who said that line, and in what film?

 

Hint: It is spoken by an Academy-Award winning actor.

 

Cheers,

No, not James Stewart.

 

 

Maybe this will help: The speaker of the quote took his screen name from the name of his mother. And his mother was also a popular screen and stage actress.

 

The question, again:

 

 

"Hello? I've got to talk to the Governor. (Pause) Well, I'm afraid you'll have to wake him, then."

 

 

Hint: It is spoken by an Academy-Award winning actor.

 

Extra clue: The film in question was made in the 1940s.

 

Who said that line, and in what film?

 

Cheers,

Dan
