*Stalag 17* Robert Strauss as Animal

 

 

I'd like to know what made him do it.

 

Animal: Maybe he just wanted to steal our wire cutters. You ever think of that?

Emgee66;

Correct re the Strauss quote. IMO, one of the really cool curtain lines. Your thread, to either post a question or open.

"I wish you was a wishing well so that I could tie a bucket to ya and sink ya."

...Cagney to Mae Clark in Public Enemy -- the famous scene involving the grapefruit.

 

Joseph Wiseman -- fingers.

The Wiseman-fingers reference could be cumbersome due to the length of the scene. Some narrowing down may be useful. Either of these may work:

finger of righteousness

finger of vengeance

finger of transportation

RETIRING THE QUESTION

This is a good Trivia question, but the flow of the scene makes it too cumbersome for the way this thread is set up.

 

The Night They Raided Minsky's (1968) Two opinionated and stiff-necked men, one Jewish, one Amish, are in a theological conflict, based on their different interpretations of Scripture. Starting with the Fist of Righteousness and moving to the fingers, it goes all over the place, until they decide to go to the theater and try to avert a crisis. (BTW, the Finger of Transportation turns out to be the thumb -- in a hitchhiker's gesture.)

 

Open thread.

Must be from *The Ghost Ship*, where of course that word is a key element in understanding his character.

Exact quote therefore hard to pinpoint:

Hmmm.... what comes to mind is either the great closing speech from *Judgment at Nuhremberg* ("We stand for justice, truth, and the value of a single human being") or the angry one from *Adam's Rib* that he says as he's packing ("Contempt for the law, that's what you've got, and it's a disease!")

I believe I've found it..

 

*Fury (1936)*

 

Spencer Tracy as Joe Wilson:

 

"I'll give them a chance that they didn't give me. They will get a *legal* trial in a *legal* courtroom. They will have a *legal* judge and a *legal* defense. They will get a *legal* sentence and a *legal* death."
