National Coffee Day: A Classic Movie Tribute

Happy National Coffee Day!

Well, well, well today, September 29, is National Coffee Day. Who would have ever dunk it — I mean thunk it!  And what better way to celebrate my love of coffee AND my love of classic movies than by sharing some classic movie quotes about coffee!


Shadow of a Doubt Joseph Cotten

I can’t face the world in the morning. I must have coffee before I can speak.
– Joseph Cotten as Uncle Charlie Oakley in Shadow of a Doubt


Jean Arthur in Only Angels Have Wings

Oh, I just thought I’d like to have a nice cup of coffee. It’s so cold and rainy outside and nice and cozy in here.
– Jean Arthur as Bonnie Lee in Only Angels Have Wings (1939)


Ernest Borgnine in Jubal

I like my coffee strong enough to float a pistol.

Gracie Allen

I really shouldn’t drink coffee in the morning. It keeps me awake all day.

Let’s go have some coffee and leave the kennel to Lassie!
