Anthony Quayle Quotes:

Kruger: Tarzan. You talk aways of this Ape Man. We are four. What have we to be afraid of?
Slade: Listen, Kruger, no one's afraid. But don't delude yourself that we're four to one. Tarzan won't come in the front door, you know. He'll just wait down there and pick us off one by one if we're fools enough to give him the chance. Now I'm telling you, all of you, don't help him by destroying yourselves.


T.E. Lawrence: I'm to "assess the situation".
Colonel Brighton: Hmph! Well that won't be too difficult. The situation's bloody awful.

Slade: Come on up, Ape Man. Let's see you.
