Vicky Hoffman: Maybe it’s crazy to try and explain anything to you the way you are now, but, Tim, try to understand, to you, this is just another show. You’re part of this business. You were born to it. You never had to pound on doors to get people to listen to you. Your family did it all. It’s different with me. I’ve been on my own since I was 15. This show is my big chance. It’s make or break.

Movie Quote of the Day – The Seven Year Itch, 1955 (dir. Billy Wilder)


Richard Sherman: Face it, no pretty girl wants me, she wants Gregory Peck.
The Girl: Is that so? How do you know what a pretty girl wants?
Richard Sherman: I don’t know, but I imagine–
The Girl: Your imagination! You think every girl’s a dope. You think a girl goes to a party and there’s some guy, a great big lunk, in a fancy striped vest strutting around like a tiger, giving you that I’m-so-handsome-you-can’t-resist-me look. And from this she’s supposed to fall flat on her face. Well, she doesn’t fall on her face. But there’s another guy in the room, over in the corner. Maybe he’s nervous and shy and perspiring a little. First, you look past him. But then you sense that he’s gentle and kind and worried. That he’ll be tender with you, nice and sweet. That’s what’s really exciting.

New Trailer for “My Week With Marilyn”


This is one of my most anticipated films of the year. The cast looks divine, anchored by what looks to be another fabulous turn by Michelle Williams as the world’s most famous blonde. I have been a huge Marilyn Monroe fan for about ten years now. I think she is one of the most under-appreciated actresses and misunderstood people of the twentieth century. I hope this film does her justice.

You can watch the trailer here at Yahoo! movies. The film is set to have its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on October 9th and will open in theaters on November 4th in the United States and November 18th in the UK.
