April Movie Quote

7

The Taxi Driver: …I’ve been driving this route for 15 years. I’ve brought ‘em out here to get that stuff, and I’ve drove ‘em home after they had it. It changes them… On the way out here, they sit back and enjoy the ride. They talk to me; sometimes we stop and watch the sunsets, and look at the birds flyin’. Sometimes we stop and watch the birds when there ain’t no birds. And look at the sunsets when its raining. We have a swell time. And I always get a big tip. But afterwards, oh oh…

Veta Louise Simmons:”Afterwards, oh oh”? What do you mean, “afterwards, oh oh”?

The Taxi Driver: They crab, crab, crab. They yell at me. Watch the lights. Watch the brakes, Watch the intersections. They scream at me to hurry. They got no faith in me, or my buggy. Yet, it’s the same cab, the same driver. and we’re going back over the very same road. It’s no fun. And no tips… After this he’ll be a perfectly normal human being. And you know what stinkers they are!

Schindler’s List Trivia

The original missing list of Schindler’s Jews was found in a suitcase together with his written legacy hidden in the attic of Schindler’s flat in Hildesheim in 1999. Schindler stayed there during the last few months before his death in 1974.
The Krakow ghetto “liquidation” scene was only a page of action in the script, but Steven Spielberg turned it into 20 pages and 20 minutes of screen action “based on living witness testimony”. For example, the scene in which the young man escapes capture by German soldiers by telling them he was ordered to clear the luggage from the street was taken directly from a survivor’s story.

Steven Spielberg’s resolve to make the film became complete when studio executives asked him why he didn’t simply make a donation of some sort rather than wasting everyone’s time and money on a depressing film.
Director Steven Spielberg was unable to get permission to film inside Auschwitz, so the scenes of the death camp were actually filmed outside the gates on a set constructed in a mirror image of the real location on the other side.
When Survivor Mila Pfefferberg was introduced to Ralph Fiennes on the set, she began shaking uncontrollably, as he reminded her too much of the real Amon Goeth.

Trivia Answer Edition #51

2Who won the Best Actress Oscar® for The Accused?

  • Sharon Stone
  • Theresa Russell
  • Martha Plimpton
  • Jodie Foster

Either this one was too hard or nobody cared. ;)

The Accused trivia:

To prepare for her role, Jodie Foster attended meetings of rape support groups and read stories of rape experiences.
The film’s original title was “Reckless Endangerment”, which is the charge the accused rapists initially plea-bargain their convictions down to.
According Jodie Foster in her interview in Boffo! Tinseltown’s Bombs and Blockbusters (2006), producer Stanley R. Jaffe felt she was “not sexy enough” for the role and wanted to cast another actress.
The movie is based on a real-life gang rape that occurred on 6 March 1983 at Big Dan’s Bar in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
Upon seeing a pre-screening of the film, Jodie Foster thought her performance as Sarah Tobias was so awful that she immediately began preparing for and taking the GRE’s for graduate school. She was prepared to leave her film career behind and focus on academia…until she won the Academy Award for her performance.
