Famous lines from movies


Recommended Posts

Hi, Mr. Ranger.

 

If you were responding seven times to my quote, I'm afraid the answer is seven times NO. However, I can see why you guessed that - it does sound like a line from "All About Eve." Let's hear from some other sophisticates . . . ..

I'm sure you're right, but please answer my question.

 

Does TCM have the rights to this film, and do they show it? :-)

 

Have to know!

Brad, I just looked up All About Eve in the TCM data base and it is listed so I asume they have the rights but to make sure I sent them an email asking so I am waiting for a reply. Will let you know further. Lue. By the way my name is Leda, LueBMone is my screen name LOL. Do you think Louis B would like it? LOL

Thanks for the info, I won't watch it on AMC because of the commercials. Guess I will have to break down and get a DVD player.

 

My guess would be Joan Crawford in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.

Sorry I read it again and it WAS Joan who was in the wheelchair. Bette was the one who served her the rat for dinner.

My two cents for a moment, I do not enjoy watching movies like "What ever happened....." I realize they have a "cult" following and that to get Bette and Joan together was exciting....I think I just place these women on a pedestal. I want them always beautiful and young, Joan romancing Clark Gable, Bette so beautiful in "Dark Victory."

The same goes for my idol, Dana Andrews. I do not watch his later horror films which has also given him a kind of "cult" following as well.

The thing about "Baby Jane" was that it brought back two legends of the silver screen together who had not worked for a while and fans flocked to the movie houses to see them because of that. Also in some places the film was a parody of not only gossip of their real lives but also some parodies of the characters they played in roles they were famous for, which was what made it more into a cult film. That's one of the things I remember about it when It first came out that made me love the film because I could not only enjoy it as a "horror" flick but get a laugh out of it because it was high camp.

I agree it's a little creepy watching these great ladies camp it up in this movie. I also would rather see them in their black and white glory. I have to be in a surreal mood to watch Whatever Happened...........

 

I see it's my turn. I'm watching the Rangers right now :-) It may be later tonight or in the morning before I come up with something if that's ok.
