Movie Quote of the Day – House by the River, 1950 (dir. Fritz Lang)

Stephen Byrne: Don’t you realize, Marjorie, your reading the manuscript has solved everything? You know, I met Emily on the stairs. She was coming down from her bath. She’d used your perfume. She looked rather pretty and I wanted to kiss her, but she got frightened and screamed. I had to stop her screaming! I didn’t mean to kill her. I hardly touched her, but I didn’t realize how easy it would be. So very easy.
