Movie Madness Monday: 23 is a prime number
Welcome back for another edition of Movie Madness Monday, the movie quote trivia game. Last week we enjoyed a short trip to a galaxy far, far, away, so this week I though we should stay a bit closer to home.
Here's how we play: I post a few quote from an unnamed movie, and you add a quote or two you like from the same movie. We do not reveal the name of the movie until Wednesday.
Here we go!
"Why, by God, girl, that's a Colt's Dragoon! You're no bigger than a corn nubbin, what're you doing with all this pistol?"
"It belonged to my father, he carried it bravely in the war, and I intend to kill Tom Chaney with it if the law fails to do so."
"Well, this'll sure get the job done if you can find a fence post to rest it on while you take aim."
"How long you boys in Texas been mounted on sheep?"
"Now, I've got business across the river and if you interfere with me you may land up in court which you don't want to be. I've got a good lawyer in J. Noble Daggett."
"Lawyer Daggett again."
"She draws him like a gun."
"Judge Parker. Old carpetbagger, but he knows his rats! We had a good court going on here 'til them pettifogging lawyers moved in!"
"By God, she reminds me of me!"
"Well then, we might not get along."
"You squirrel-headed bastard!"
"Baby sister, I was born game and I intend to go out that way."
"A little earlier I gave some thought to stealin' a kiss from you, although you are very young... and you're unattractive to boot. But now I'm of a mind to give you five or six good licks with my belt. "
"Well, one would be as unpleasant as the other."
****Wednesday Update: Someone kills your father? If you need help, you look for someone with TRUE GRIT!
One of the very best Westerns ever, in my opinion, with the Duke (God bless him!) demonstrating his knack for action and comedy. Look for an incredibly young Dennis Hopper and Robert Duvall in supporting roles. Kim Darby played Mattie Ross (and I never realized it, but she'd also played Miri on Star Trek in episode 12, the one where Earth's adults had all been killed off by some deadly virus. She was the one who fell in love with Kirk. I know, I REALLY AM a geek!).
It is the dialogue in this movie that makes it great. It's also one of the few movies the Duke ever did that spawned a sequel, Rooster Cogburn... and the Lady in which Katharine Hepburn also starred. Both films were magic, in my opinion. Those of you who were stumped by this one need to treat yourself to a re-viewing.
