Raymond Walburn Quotes:

Mayor Everett D. Noble: This problem is not local, it's national. In a few years, if the war goes on - heaven forbid - you won't be able to swing a cat without knocking down a couple of heroes. Now... are we going to be governed by young men - very young men - however well-meaning or patriotic they may be - whose principal talent consists of hopping in and out of wolfholes...
Political Boss: Foxholes.
Mayor Everett D. Noble: Huh?
Political Boss: They're called foxholes.
Mayor Everett D. Noble: ...talent consists of hopping in and out of foxholes and killing hundreds of enemies with one swoop of the sword. Or... are we going to be governed by respectable civic leaders of mature age who do not seek the appointment, but accept it as a civic duty. I refer to men like... uh, well... myself.


Longfellow Deeds: He talks about women as if they were cattle.
Walter: Every man to his taste, sir.


Mrs. Noble: Everett, I just have a feeling you're going to make an ass of yourself and I'm just going to pretend I don't know you.
Mayor Everett D. Noble: I wish you didn't have to pretend!

Raymond Walburn Facts
His first Broadway show "The Greyhound" (1912) was deemed a huge hit but its run was cut short by the "Titanic" disaster.

While playing the juvenile lead in the play "Come Out of the Kitchen" starring Ruth Chatterton, Walburn was called to military duty. He joined the heavy artillery corps in training at Fort Hamilton and, during his first leave, returned to the theater to visit. The management, in a spurt of patriotism, allowed him to play his old part in uniform that night.
