Portlander's Movie Log - September, 2013 (31 movies items)

"#85 Watched September 11th - Library DVD - 1st Viewing "You're through, Renault - you're through in pictures and plays and vaudeville and radio and everything - you're a corpse and you don't know it - go get yourself buried." - Max Kane Dinner at Eight is another entry on the AFI Comedy list that I just have to scratch my head about - it is a rather dull, plodding mostly pointless movie about a woman who hosts a big dinner party, but the guests have various complications on the way to it - "

Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"The famous closing scene when vulgar Kitty (Jean Harlow) makes conversation with aging actress Carlotta (Marie Dressler) on their way into dinner: Kitty: "I was reading a book the other day." Carlotta (staggering at the thought): "Reading a book!" Kitty: "Yes. It's all about civilization or something, a nutty kind of a book. Do you know that the guy said that machinery is going to take the place of every profession?" Carlotta (eyeing Kitty's costume and shapely physical charms): "Oh, my dear, th"

Garbo Inspires! - Greta Garbo References (25 movies items)

" Hattie Loomis : Now, Ed, it isn't going to be so terrible. Ed Loomis: Not so terrible? Get into this uniform to meet a bunch of fatheads l don't want to know...and miss that Greta Garbo picture I've been waiting for, for two months. What's your idea of terrible? I like the way this reference suggests Greta Garbo's popularity with the aristocrats in the 1930s, but there's a bit of a goof in the actor's delivery of it that annoys me. Grant Mitchell's character is supposedly a Greta Garbo fan,"
