(To be continued – NB: Roberto added the 100 quotes but the post was so long we decided to cut it to 25 and delete the space between each quote, the blank line in between, OK, Roberto? You can then add the other 3 posts with the remaining quotes, if you like. Is it OK?)  


  1. I completely agree with of you

    Thank you.

  2. The Maltese Falcon (1941) – ending scene
    The quoted sentence, The stuff dreams are made of, is just the last sentence in this movie and it’s Humphrey Bogart who says it, referring to the Maltese Falcon.

  3. I have not seen the film, although I think I’ve got it at home. I will try to see it.

    Did you like it?

  4. […] Quotes! (1“RABBIT-PROOF FENCE” is the name of a film, I has watched recently, whose plot and photography really caught me. […]

  5. I can´t see your blog, ladysilence…

    There are two quotes of The Wizard of Oz! Brilliant! This was the first film I saw (then I saw it many many many times) and I´ll always adore it! “The wicked witch of the west is dead!” is also very famous, but I must admit I´m not objective. Barbra Streisand sang: “Ding dong! The Witch is dead! Which Witch? The Wicked Witch!”. A tongue twister, very funny! Has anybody heard it?

    Somewhere over the rainbow…

  6. I’ve got The Wizard of Oz’s soundtrack. I love that film because of the beautiful remembrances it gaves to me of my childhood.

    I’ve not seen Rabbit-Proof Fence. What sort of film is it? I mean, it’s a drama, a comedy…
