Michael Redgrave Quotes:

Ruxton Towers Reformatory governor: I used to be a runner myself, quite a useful one too but a bit of a plodder.

Capt. Karel Hasek, alias Geoffrey Mitchell: [writing a letter to Celia in November of 1942] "Our third winter is approaching, bringing with it a new enemy. It is not the duration but the indefiniteness of duration. For if a man knew the length of his sentence, he could plan accordingly. Afterwards in our memories, we shall relive only the sunny days. The pleasant scenes. The freedom of mind, and the comradeship. We shall forget the wet days... the wet weeks... Those days when it seemed an effort to do nothing and our bunks were the only release. Deep down in the hearts of all of us there dwells a lonely ache, a desperate yearning for those we love, and a fear. A fear of becoming forgotten men. Write to me again soon, Celia. You never know how great the comfort is that your letters bring. They give me strength, and hope, and happiness. You will never know how much they mean to me."

Ruxton Towers Reformatory governor: What's your name?
Colin Smith: Smith.
Chief Borstal Officer: Say "sir" when you answer the Governor.
Colin Smith: [insolently] Sir Smith.
Ruxton Towers Reformatory governor: That won't get you far here, lad.
