"We put all the rotten eggs in one basket"

 

- Hannes Messmer as Oberst Von Luger in The Great Escape

 

Hannes turned 91 May 17th - NOT

 

*****Edit******  A fellow member kindly pointed out to me in PM that Messemer passed away some time ago.  He didn't wish to publicly embarrass me for this faux pas.  I guess the imdb doesn't know everything!

 

So dear old Hannes won't be celebrating any more birthdays, I'm afraid.  I enjoyed his performance in General Della Rovere too by the way.

MovieCollectorOH--do you remember which episode of I Love Lucy Lucille Ball did the take on Tondelayo on??  I missed that one *&^% it! --Lucy as Tondelayo would have me laughing till I cried!

 

Sorry, no.  That was just that line.  She said it as a comeback I think.  It did get a big laugh from her audience.  It probably went over the heads of those who post quotes and references on IMDB, but I picked up on it, having already been a fan of White Cargo.

The What do you want? question Mordan asked Vir on "Babylon 5 - Episode In the Shadow of Z'ha'dum"

 

Vir....I want to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike, as a warning to the next 10 generations that some things come with too high a price.  I'll look up at your lifeless eyes and wave like this.
