Clint Eastwood and Humphrey Bogart appreciation thread
Permalink  
 

 Eastwood and Humphrey Bogart have been screenwriters favorites for best lines in movie history. Help me remember some of them. Go ahead, make my day, punks. smile

Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade - The Maltese Falcon

"I don´t mind a reasonable amount of trouble"

"When you're slapped, you'll take it and like it."


"You're a good man, sister."


"People lose teeth talking like that. If you want to hang around, you'll be polite".

"If you kill me, how are you gonna get the bird? And if I know you can´t afford to kill me, how are you gonna scare me into giving it to you?"

"I hope they don't hang you, precious, by that sweet neck. Yes, angel, I'm gonna send you over. The chances are you'll get off with life. That means if you're a good girl, you'll be out in 20 years. I'll be waiting for you. If they hang you, I'll always remember you."

Bit of a dialogue:

Louis: What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

Cap. Louis:The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
Rick: I was misinformed.


Clint Eastwood

As Walt Kowalski in Gran Torino:

"Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn´t  have messed with? That´s me."

"Get off my lawn"

"I've been called a lot of things, but never funny."

"I used to stack fucks likes you five feet high in Korea... use ya for sand bags."

As Harry:

“Listen, punk. To me you're nothin' but dogshit, you understand? And a lot of things can happen to dogshit. It can be scraped up with a shovel off the ground. It can dry up and blow away in the wind. Or it can be stepped on and squashed. So take my advice and be careful where the dog shits ya!”

As  Blondie in The good, the bad and the ugly:

"It's not a joke, it's a rope, Tuco. Now I want you to get up there and put your head in that noose."

 As The Stranger in High Plains Drifte:

"You're going to look pretty silly with that knife sticking out of your ass."

As Joe in "A fistful of dollars"

"You see, my mule don't like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it."


As Robert Kincaid in "The bridges of Madison County":

"Don't kid yourself, Francesca: you are anything but a simple woman."

"If you want me to stop, tell me now."  ashamed

As Will Munny in "The unforgiven":

"We done stuff for money before, Ned." (wut?)

"He should have armed himself if he's gonna decorate his saloon with my friend."

 And finally... martini"... to us ducks ´cause we don´t give a quack!

If we are talking about Clint Eastwood we need to talk about his entire career. Yes, Dirty Harry and the Spaghetti Westerns made his career. They offer countless lines of fodder for the macho. But it is his later work that leaves an impression on me.

The Unforgiven is quite possibly one of the best movies to come out of the nineties. It came out when everyone thought that the western genre was dying. The market was flooded with the unrealistic portrayals of the Wild Wild West. Movies like Silverado and the Young Guns films were entertaining and action packed. But connecting with any of the characters on a personal level was impossible. Tombstone, as campy as it was, has become a cult classic with many thirty something men quoting the film. It remains a favorite. But The Unforgiven truly captures the spirit of the American west. Its characters are deep and flawed. Neither black, nor white.

Accolades include 4 Academy Awards including a Best Director award for Clint himself. But this film made an impact beyond critical recognition. It changed the genre. No longer were the macho, somewhat silly western films so prominent. Now the darker films, more in common with The Unforgiven than Tombstone, are being produced. Movies such as Open Range, The Assassination of Jesse James and 3:10 to Yuma show the darker side of the American west and thus a much more realistic character portrayal.

I profoundly dig this thread.

What Paul said about Unforgiven, yes, a hundred times YES. Loved that film.
And the Bridges of Madison County has to be one of my all time favorites. That scene where they part at the stop, and it's raining, ugh...that kills me everytime. "I don't want to need you, because I can't have you. " Get out, Clint, just get out. You perfect, perfect man.

"I once fixed a door that wasn't even broken yet." (Gran Torino)

and some dude in Escape from Alactraz, I think:
"- what kind of childhood did you have??
- Short."

Love Clint Eastwood (more as a director than an actor but still like him), on the other hand ...Humphrey Bogart = Kevin Costner to me.

Love the Maltese falcon as a movie though.

Big fan of the old Eastwood Westerns, especially Two Mules for Sister Sara.

Clint: (after Sara asks him to bury men he killed who tried to harm her): Sister, I don't mind shooting them for you, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna sweat over them for you.

   I'm with Tir on this one, I'm a huge fan of classic movies, but no Humphrey for me. Never really liked his acting.

freakout

 yes, you better run! furious You ruined my lunch no. Ladies, not that Clint is a genius as an actor, love the guy but... just saying. They played the same kind of characters and neither is/was a great actor. 

The genres both of them attempted (noir and western) are based on stereotypes (as you know already) and they never require great acting chops, just a proper writing and good lines. That´s the reason why "Unforgiven" was so good ... Eastwood, as a director, broke some rules genre there.

I completely agree. To me, Eastwood is a much better director than he is an actor. With Bogart, I may be biased, because I'm not a huge noir fan. And I'd rather not rant about Casablanca, which is in my opinion a highly overrated movie. Bogart is great for some roles, but I've only liked him in minor parts so far. Haven't watched all of his movies tho, so it could be that I simply haven't found his best parts yet.

Some Bogart for you Atreyu :

"I should never have switched from scotch to martinis."
"They`ll nail anyone who ever scratched his ass during the National Anthem."

And this is great, look what he said about Bette Davis: "Even when I was carrying a gun, she scared the be-jesus out of me." Smart guy.

That's because Bette Davis is the biggest BAMF that ever lived.

This is so far from Eastwood's badass side, but just saw his movie Hereafter and even if it's not a great movie, it's still something I recommend, because it's very sweet and simple, the kind of thing he directs best. And Matt Damon is wonderful in it.

And not to forget 'Key Largo', 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre'* and 'In a Lonely Place' which is an atypical Bogart movie.
