What's that line from?

#1

Post by blocho »

This game is much like the other guessing games in this forum. Only with quotes instead of screen shots.

The rules are simple:

1. Post a quote from a movie.
2. Post another quote at least every 12 hours if nobody guessed it yet
3. NO GOOGLING. This game isn't about who can do a web search the fastest.

New game:

- If there's no new quote within 24 hours, anyone can start with another movie
- If someone answers correctly, that someone may post the next quote to guess!
- If nobody manages to get the movie right after 3 days, anyone can start with another movie


Here's the first quote:
"Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me."

The director is not a big name.

From the 1950s, on four ICM lists.

"Only six of these cameras were ever made. Only five of them ever worked. We have four of those."



I know at least one member of this forum who should know exactly where that quote is from.

I think this game would be more fun, if the quotes and movies were a bit more well known. Sure, most people have heard of the last two movies, but they are not seen by most of us. Real Life only has 595 checks.

How about from now on, the first post includes two quotes from the movie? That might make things a little easier.
