Ralph Richardson Quotes:

Charles Richmond: All our years of marriage she never once raised her voice at me, never tried to wheedle anything out of me. She was... remarkable.
Maria Marcello: You were a lucky man.
Charles Richmond: She died in great pain. A kind nature is no defense in sickness and death. So... what's the point of it?


Baron von Richter: David, we are not asking for anything. Europe is ours, we can walk into Britain whenever we like.
Sir David Kelly: If you think we're going to gamble on Herr Hitler's guarantees, you're making a grave mistake. All those years in England seems to have left you none the wiser. We're not easily frightened. Also we know how hard it is for an army to cross the Channel. The last little Corporal who tried came a cropper. So don't threaten or dictate to us until you're marching up Whitehall... and even then we won't listen.


Baines: There are faults on both sides, Phile. We don't have any call to judge. Perhaps she was what she was because I am what I am. We ought to be very careful, Phile. 'Cause we make one another.
Phillipe: I thought God made us.
Baines: Trouble is, we take a hand in the game.

Ralph Richardson Facts
Was nominated three times for Broadway's Tony Award as Best Actor (Dramatic): in 1957, for "The Waltz of the Toreadors" in 1971, for "Home" and, in 1977, for "No Man's Land" -- but never won.

Famously eccentric, he once stopped in a middle of a stage performance, and addressed the audience enquiring "Is there doctor in the house". When a doctor made himself known, Richardson calmly enquired "Isn't this a terrible play doctor ?".

Played two roles originally played by Basil Rathbone. He played Karenin in Anna Karenina (1948) (Rathbone was Karenin in the Anna Karenina (1935) film version). Richarson also played Dr. Sloper in The Heiress (1949) after Rathbone had played Sloper in the Broadway stage version.
