Narrator: Mother got mad… Indian mad.

 

Texas Carnival

Texas_Carnival_(1951)

Funny comedy/musical, as in, back when funny was actually FUNNY. Real good film, this . . . thumbs up! Esther Williams was a beauty, and a great actress! 🙂

My favorite scene – amazing how they did it in those days.

Awesome!

I couldn’t find the track from the film, so this will have to do. One of my favorite songs! 😉

Song Of Love

Poster - Song of Love_02

An account of pianist Clara and her devotion to supporting her struggling yet famous composer husband, Robert Schumann, when times got tough. A wonderful story of their shared love for music, and above all, the strong sense of unconditional love. I actually cried at the end, which was awesome. A great performance by Katharine, indeed, and all the compositions used to make this film, beyond any doubt, exceptional!

This one is my favorite composition.

Just amazing.

These were my favorite scenes! 😀

Anna Karenina

AnnaKareninaJLC4

Starring Greta Garbo, Fredric March, little Freddie Bartholomew.

Anna Karenina: You know, Dolly, men like Stiva aren’t really conscious of deception at all. They put their wives and homes in one compartment… and these other women into another.

Vronsky: Our meetings are so brief, the dance also.

Anna Karenina: But our reunions are so frequent.

Vronsky: When I leave you, I’m lost in a world of strangers. When I touch your hand, we’re alone.

Anna Karenina: [Smiling as she switches dance partners] I return you to the world!

Vronsky: I love your frown when you concentrate.

Anna Karenina: [playing croquet] How do you expect me to make this shot if you talk to me?

Starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden

David Larrabee: What’s so constructive about marrying Elizabeth Tyson?

Linus Larrabee: [offering a sheet of plastic] Taste it.

David Larrabee: [licks it] It’s sweet.

Linus Larrabee: That’s right. It’s made of sugar cane.

David Larrabee: Sugar cane. Wait a minute. This wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that the Tyson’s own the largest holdings of sugar cane in Puerto Rico, would it?

Linus Larrabee: Second largest. The largest have no daughter.

David Larrabee: It’s all beginning to make sense. Mr. Tyson owns the sugarcane, you own the formula for the plastics, and I’m supposed to be offered up as a human sacrifice on the altar of the industrial progress. Is that it?

Linus Larrabee: You make it sound so vulgar, David, as if the son of hot dog dynasty were being offered in marriage to the daughter of the mustard king. Surely… surely you don’t object to Elizabeth Tyson just because her father happens to have twenty million dollars? That’s very narrow-minded of you, David.

David Larrabee: Just one thing you overlooked. I haven’t proposed and she hasn’t accepted.

Linus Larrabee: Oh, don’t worry. I proposed and Mr. Tyson accepted.

David Larrabee: Did you kiss him?

Oliver Larrabee: Now, I’m not saying that all Larrabees have been saints. There was a Thomas Larrabee who was hung for piracy, and there was a Benjamin Larrabee who was a slave trader, and there was my great-great uncle, Joshua Larrabee, who was shot in Indiana while attempting to rob a train, but there NEVER was a Larrabee who behaved as David Larrabee has behaved here tonight!

David Larrabee: And exactly what have I done?

Oliver Larrabee: All columnists should be beaten to a pulp and converted back into paper!

There is no denying, Audrey Hepburn was an amazing and very attractive actress!! Superb movie 🙂

Green Mansions

00/00/1959. Film "Green mansions" (Vertes demeures) by Mel Ferrer

Starring: Audrey Hepburn, Anthony Perkins

“The blue sky, the brown soil beneath, the grass, the trees, the animals, the wind, and rain, and stars are never strange to me; for I am in and of and am one with them; and my flesh and the soil are one, and the heat in my blood and in the sunshine are one, and the winds and the tempests and my passions are one. I feel the ‘strangeness’ only with regard to my fellow men, especially in towns, where they exist in conditions unnatural to me, but congenial to them…. In such moments we sometimes feel a kinship with, and are strangely drawn to, the dead, who were not as these; the long, long dead, the men who knew not life in towns, and felt no strangeness in sun and wind and rain.”
William Henry Hudson

The Odd Couple

TheOddCouple2943444

Starring Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau

– – –

Oscar Madison: I’m in for a quarter.

Murray: Aren’t you going to look at your cards first?

Oscar Madison: What for? I’m gonna bluff anyway. Who gets a Pepsi?

Murray: I get a Pepsi.

Oscar Madison: My friend Murray the policeman gets a warm Pepsi.

Roy: You still didn’t fix the refrigerator. It’s been two weeks now – no wonder it stinks in here.

Oscar Madison: Temper, temper. If I wanted nagging, I’d go back with my wife. I’m out. Who wants food?

Murray: What do you got?

Oscar Madison: I got, uh, brown sandwiches and, uh, green sandwiches. Which one do you want?

Murray: What’s the green?

Oscar Madison: It’s either very new cheese or very old meat.

Murray: I’ll take the brown.

[Oscar hands Murray a sandwich which Murray starts wolfing down]

Roy: Are you crazy? You’re not going to eat that, are you?

Murray: I’m hungry!

Roy: His refrigerator has been out of order for two weeks now. I saw milk standing in there that wasn’t even in the bottle!

Oscar Madison: What are you, some kind of health nut? Eat, Murray, eat!

Had a great laugh at this. It’s unfortunate that today I can only enjoy comedy if dated back to the years 1930’s – 1990’s, back when what they said trumped what they did.
