Movie Quote of the Month
“When I first began in films, they still used to write some of those pictures in what they called “MGM Medieval.” There’d be Tony Curtis saying ‘Yonder lies the castle of my father. Gladly will he give us shelter.’ The actor who finally has to say something like that and make it work is faced with a very special problem in projecting a character or situation from a remote time period, and some improvisation or discussion on the set with the director can be a good thing.”
