Last Lines

THIS IS A RATHER SHORT LISTof famous last lines from even more famous movies. Just in case you've forgotten, I'll prompt you a bit.
Who can forget Vivien Leigh's final words as Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind", 1939.
"I'll go home and I'll think of some way to get him back! After all, tomorrow is another day!"

Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale in "The Wizard of Oz", 1939. "And oh, Auntie Em, there's no place like home."
Bette Davis as Charlotte Vale in "Now Voyager", 1942. To Paul Henreid: "Oh, Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars."

Joe E. Brown as Osgood Fielding III, "Some Like It Hot", 1959, to Jack Lemmon: "Well, nobody's perfect!"

Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter, "The Silence of the Lambs", 1991, into the phone: "I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner. Bye."

Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blaine in "Casablanca", 1943, to Claude Rains: "Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

And I hope not last.. So happy to have received this Kreativ Blogger award from the talented and original Marty at Dark Star Discovery. I am one of those creatures who likes to collect stuff. Can't help myself! Will gratefully display this honor! Will blog for food!

The Humphrey Bogart line is one of top favourite ones ever. And the 'Some Like It Hot' always brings a smile to my face.

Greetings from London.

Hi Willow-
It's funny how totally unrealistic this movie really is, and yet so memorable.. It's the great actors, and the faces!! Kids don't give stuff back!

Lyn said...

Hi Jeane-
Thank you so much..
Only Bette Davis can say a Bette Davis line! Can you imagine saying it with a straight face?

Lyn said...

Greetings to A Cuban-
I think "Some Like It Hot", is my all around favorite ..that last line excuses everything!!
Thank you....
