James Stewart

James Stewart

James Stewart
(as Tony Kirby)

Tony Kirby: Well, he's married, wife just had a baby, didn't think it was fair to gamble with the future. Anyway that's his excuse for lack of courage. I know, say it -- what's my excuse? Well, the Kirbys have been bankers for 9,000 years or something, and that line just can't be broken -- and that's been pounded into my head until I had softening in the brain. That's my excuse.

Lionel Barrymore

Lionel Barrymore
(as Martin Vanderhof)

Grandpa Vanderhoff: Stop worrying. If I know my granddaughter, she isn't going to marry Tony without your blessing. So the only thing you've got to be concerned about is this big deal of yours. So what if it does fall through? What if all your deals fall through? Might be a good thing for you.

Alec Guinness

Alec Guinness
(as Prince Feisal)

Prince Feisal: Well, General, I will leave you. Major Lawrence doubtless has reports to make upon my people and their weakness, and the need to keep them weak in the British interest... and the French interest too, of course. We must not forget the French now...
General Allenby: [indignantly] I've told you, sir, no such treaty exists.
Prince Feisal: Yes, General, you have lied most bravely, but not convincingly. I know this treaty does exist.
T.E. Lawrence: Treaty, sir?
Prince Feisal: He does it better than you, General. But then, of course, he is almost an Arab.

Kathy Lacey: Well, don't you remember last winter when that Jewish schoolteacher resigned, and I...
John Minify: Oh, yes. Well, I knew somebody would be asking me for a credit line. I'm always stealing ideas without realizing it.
Kathy Lacey: That's what makes your magazine so original.


Claude Rains

Claude Rains
(as Captain Louis Renault)

Rick: How can you close me up? On what grounds?
Captain Renault: I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.

Captain Renault: [aloud] Everybody out at once!
