Monday Movie

Sam Spade meets the fat man! Note the astonishing resemblance of Kasper Gutman to J. Packington Paco III.

"fat man"!! Today he'd be regarded as mildly overweight.

Times have, indeed, changed.

Say there! He also looks just like the guy in the fez who tried to buy Rick's Cafe. I think I saw a little bugeyed guy there as well!
It's enough to bring on a strong case of the vapors, it is!

Love Bogarts' smile after he leaves the room - his cool cynicism in the film.

Ah they don't make movies like that now days. Loved the Bob Hope one to.

And now for the Tuesday Quiz following the Mondday Movie!

Has there been another body of work that has produced so many absolutely iconic quotes?

Just look at one movie!
Here's looking at you kid.
We'll always have Paris.
Play it Sam, play As Time Goes By.
You played it for her you can play it for me.
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she has to walk into mine.
What's your citizenship..I'm a drunkard...That makes Rick a citizen of the world.
You want my advice, Go back to Bulgaria.
I'm shocked, shocked to find gambling going on here.
The last plane to Lisbon.
Round up the usual suspects.
You may not regret it now ,but soon, and for the rest of your life.
Frenchie, this could be the start of a beautiful relationship.

There is probably twenty or thirty scenes in that movie that people would recognize.

And then there is..
You know how to whistle don't you?
Was you ever stung by a bee?

There ARE probably
Beautiful friendship not relationship.

Hey! The markets are open. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I like the second meeting better - where he shows up with "The Kid" and takes his guns away.

"C'mon. This'll get ya in solid with your boss."
