Kenneth More Quotes:

Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: [looks around Lifeboat 6 as it's being lowered] Hey, we've only got one sailor with us. That's not enough to manage this boat.
[Calls up to the Boat Deck as other women look around and confirm her observation]
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: Hold it there.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [to seamen at falls] Stop lowering.
[Calls down to the boat]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: What's the matter?
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: Hey son. We only got one sailor in this boat!
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [Looks around Boat Deck for any available seamen] Are there any spare hands here?
Maj. Arthur Peuchen: [Looks around, notices there are no seamen around, and steps forward] I'll go, if you like.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Are you a sailor?
Maj. Arthur Peuchen: I'm a yachtsman.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [Indicates lowering ropes for the boat] If you're seaman enough to slip down that lifeline, you can go.
[Yells down to boat]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Below.
Hitchens: Sir.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Let's have that line.
[the lifeline is swung towards the side of the ship. Lightoller grabs it after a couple of tries and holds it for Peuchen]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Right. Good luck.
[Peuchen grabs the line and swings out over the edge. Lightoller watches as he lowers himself down the rope and safely into the boat. Once he's in safely, Lightoller addresses the seamen at the falls]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Lower away together.


Col. Archibald Gracie: [looks at rockets being fired by the Carpathia as he and Lightoller sit in the stern of a lifeboat] Will that be the Carpathia?
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [silently nods in the affirmative]
Col. Archibald Gracie: Aren't you glad to see her?
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Yes I'm glad. But then, *I'm* still *alive*.
Col. Archibald Gracie: If only she'd been nearer.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: There are quite a lot of "ifs" about it; aren't there, Colonel?
[turns and shouts to another lifeboat they're towing]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Keep up, quartermaster. Keep that line slack.
[turns to address Colonel Gracie again]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: If we'd been steaming a few knots slower, or if we'd sighted that berg a few seconds earlier, we might not even have struck. If we'd been carrying enough lifeboats for the size of the ship instead of just enough to meet the regulations, things would have been different again, wouldn't they?
Col. Archibald Gracie: Maybe. But *you* have nothing to reproach yourself with. You've done all any man could and more. You're not...
[stops himself]
Col. Archibald Gracie: I was about to say, you're not *God*, Mister Lightoller.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: *No* seaman ever thinks he is! I've been at sea since I was a *boy*. I've been in sail. I've even been *shipwrecked* before. I *know* what the sea can *do*! But, *this* is different-!
Col. Archibald Gracie: Because we hit an iceberg?
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: No- Because we were so *sure*! Because even though it's *happened*, it's *still* unbelieveable! I don't think *I'll* ever feel *sure* again, about *anything*!


Ambrose Claverhouse: Well, frankly children, this is beyond me!

Kenneth More Facts
He was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1970 Queen's New Year's Honours List for his services to drama.

Published two volumes of autobiography, Happy Go Lucky (1959) and More or Less (1978) and a book of reminiscences, Kindly Leave the Stage (1965).

Was sued unsuccessfully by the singer Dorothy Squires (aka Mrs Roger Moore) in 1969 when he mistakenly referred to another woman as Roger Moore's wife. Kenneth More had been introducing guests prior to the British Film Academy Awards at the Hilton Hotel, London for a TV film documenting the event. The other woman was in fact Luisa Mattioli who had lived with Roger Moore for several years after he had separated from Miss Squires. Representing Kenneth More was Michael Havers, one of the UK's most eminent barristers. The jury took just 30 minutes to decide that no defamation had taken place.
