“Most women use more brains picking a horse in the third at Belmont than they do picking a husband”
This quote is one of 40 in a slideshow by the Telegraph and is attributed to Actress Lauren Bacall (1924-2014), who was married to Humphrey Bogart. It makes a good quip doesn’t it? It should, because as commenter, allthoughtswork, noted, it was written by a screenwriter, not thought up by Ms Bacall. This is just one more example of the cultural issue we seem to have of confusing the character with the actor. Nice catch, allthoughtswork.

I hope you enjoy this link as much as I did. I love that some of the best scenes and lines in movies were ad lib, think about Casablanca’s “Here’s looking at you, kid”, or Aliens’ “Game over, man”, as the drop ship crashes into the planet, and try to think about Young Frankenstein without Gene Hackman’s “Wait, I was going to make espresso”.
For me, this is the mark of an actor who is truly in character, and it shows so much about a director who can recognize such perfection and keep it in the film.
My dad was/is a James Bond fan. Since Dr No hit the theaters the year I was born, that means is that I slept through the first run of all the early films. 🙂 If you are a James Bond fan, you’ll love this slide show. If you are not a James Bond fan, you’ll probably still enjoy the ironic quotes. Check it out!
My favorite comedy team turns 20 today! Yes, It’s been 20 years since an eccentric inventor and his trusty dog first hit British screens in A Grand Day Out. To celebrate the event, they have launched a new website with lots of clips, ecards and downloads. In honor of the event, I think I’ll watch The Curse of the Were-Rabbit!
