Squirrel!! - you are correct.

The line is at the start when the workmen are talking to him about moving out of his house. That film has one of the best opening 15 minutes ever made.

Now I'm going to have to rewatch it!

A: Nice ride. Mustang, Boss 429. She a 70?
B: 69.
A: Beautiful car.
B: Thanks.
A: How much?
B: Excuse me?
A: How much for the car?
B: She's not for sale.

Peter have you not seen Idiocracy? The only comedy to turn into a documentary? :lol: Other than an overdose of bad language, brilliant film.

Thank you Barbara (for coming to my memories rescue and recognising the film!).

All yours.

Hmmmm. Ok lets see... recent movie that had me tearing up on a flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta. Makes for awkward moments when the flight attendant asks if you want a snack and you're busy bawling 8-[ :roll: :lol:

Timing wise a good guess but no, this is a documentary. Feature to be out on the same referenced individual, but later this year.

This film is called "Won't You Be My Neighbor" about Fred Rogers aka Mister Rogers. Interesting backstory to my childhood memories. Tom Hanks plays him in an upcoming feature film.

Anyone else can put up a line, I've had the mic long enough... :D

Thread resurrection. Caught a bit of this the other night. Stars more than a couple of Hollywood big hitters:

A) What the hell is happening?

B) I blew up the building.

A) Why?

B) Because you made a phone call.

More from the same film:

a): I'm sick of this, you either shoot me, or tell me what the hell is going on!

b): You have something they want!

a): I don't have anything!

b): Maybe you do, but you don't know it! Stay off the phone. Stay away from me and Rachel, you come near any one of us, I'm gonna kill you.

Ok - let's kill this one. It was Enemy of the State with Will Smith and Gene Hackman talking. Anyone want to throw a new one up?

A few recent posts on the Forum made me think of this classic film. Just like Mary Poppins, I never explain myself! :twisted:

I might respond to a PM. Maybe.

The quote, finally.

The line rings a bell, but I can't quite place it. I'm thinking that it's a Western?

Unlimited.

2 wrong, so far. :lol:


Shouldn't be that hard. After all, how many short films from 1933 are there to quote??
Especially, classics.

The Wizard of Oz was 1939 and wasn't all that short. So I'm thinking something with the Marx Brothers or Shirley Temple or maybe Laurel and Hardy or Charlie Chaplin.

I know that's probably wrong, but it's the only film I remember WC Fields being in apart from David Copperfield.
