100 THINGS CHALLENGE 005/100


When I was a kid during the Seventies, we only had one TV channel at my home (Shocker)
That meant that all we saw and learned came from that one channel.
My parents loved movies and if they thought they would be appropriate I was allowed to see them.
I do not remember how old I was when I saw that movie first but I never forgot the quote.


Today´s quote is from an old movie

“To Have and Have Not”
from 1944 starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall




Bogart plays Harry “Steve” Morgan a guy making deals during WW2. He ends up in troble and meets Marie “Slim” Browning the singer in the club where Morgan spends most of his days, played by Bacall.



The quote is from a first meeting of the two characters (as far as I remember) they have a conversation, and as “Slim” leave the room she turns to “Steve” and says…

“You know you don't have to act with me, Steve. You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow.”



It is a wonderful line, and it has been used in so many movies later aome good some bad..but this is the original.

En rigtig klassiker og en fantastisk debut fra en 19 årig Bacall.

Og jeg elsker osse dit Grisling citat fra den anden dag, min favorit plysser tror jeg ;)

Makes me think about one of Dr House's quote I heard yesterday that's so very true:
"You have what you have not what you deserve"
