Movie Quote of the Day – The Crystal Ball, 1943 (dir. Elliott Nugent)


Toni Gerard: It’s almost like fate, isn’t it?
Madame Zenobia: Fate’s fine. As long as you take it by its own two horns and make it come your way.

UCLA Film & Television Archive To Showcase the Films of Director Mitchell Leisen

This looks to be a really great line up of films. If you are in L.A. I definitely recommend you head out to these. I am a big fan of Easy Living, Death Takes a Holiday and Midnight, but if you can only see one of these films make it 1945’s Kitty with Paulette Goddard and Ray Milland. Basically, it is Pygmalion, but with prostitutes. It’s not on DVD and it’s a real treat.
