Movie Quote of the Day – Possessed, 1931 (dir. Clarence Brown)


possessed_1931

Marian Martin: You don’t own me. Nobody does. My life belongs to me.
Al Manning: You’ll make one fine mess of it.
Marian Martin: It’ll still belong to me.
Marian’s mother: Don’t, Marian, you frighten me when you talk like that.
Marian Martin: If I were a man it wouldn’t frighten you! You’d think it was right for me to go out and get anything I could out of life, and use anything I had to get it. Why should men be so different? All they’ve got are their brains and they’re not afraid to use them. Well neither am I!
