I was watching “Out of the past” with Robert Mitchum and Kirk Douglas (I just bought it and highly recommend it) when I realized how many great lines there were in the movie, such as:
“You’re like a leaf that the wind blows from one gutter to another.”
Kathy, who Douglas is paying Mitchum to find is explaining to Mitchum’s character that she really didn’t take anything from Kirk Douglas and says “You do believe me don’t you?” Mitchum grabs her to kiss her and says “Baby, I don’t care.”
Referring to Kathy another character says, “She can’t be all bad, no one is” and Mitchum responds “Well, she comes the closest.”
Douglas: “You wait for me to talk, I like that.”
Mitchum: I never found out much listening to myself."
We all know how many great lines there are in “The Maltese Falcon” and “Casablanca” does anyone have any other examples from lesser known films?
