Movie Quote of the Month

May 2019:

"The church people clamor for clean pictures, but they all come out to see Mae West"

A Lousiana film exhibitor quoted on page 210 in Forbidden Hollywood: When Sex Ruled the Movies by Mark Viera

"You danced again in the Bois in Paris, the trees like monstrous black pagodas against the night, the stars brilliant as sequins on an archangel's floating cloak, the magically white faces of women, the lights in the night making love to the black shadows in their hair, their lips as red as lobsters, their arm-pits as clean as ivory, the men talking with facile gestures, the whole tapestry of the Chateau de Madrid like a painted fan against a summer night. They call this rhythm the Blues, which is short for a low state of vitality brought about by the action of life on the liver. O Baby, it's divine!"

The Green Hat by Michael Arlen, p.110, adapted (confusingly) into A Woman of Affairs starring Greta Garbo and John Gilbert.
