Hard Boiled: Great Lines from Classic Noir Films Summary


Hard Boiled: Great Lines from Classic Noir Films by Peg Thompson

The boss chewed you out? Try this: "I've met a lot of hard-boiled eggs in my time, but you -- you're twenty minutes" (Jan Sterling in "The Big Carnival"). How about something for that special moment? "I felt pretty good -- like an amputated leg" (Dick Powell in "Murder, My Sweet"). In the cult, crime, and noir films of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, everyone was supremely eloquent. Now contemporary fans of these classics can be equally clever with this inspired collection of over 300 lines from nearly 150 of the greatest noir movies ever produced. With full-color reproductions of publicity photos, promotional posters, and film stills, "Hard-Boiled" is a glamorous look back at the golden era of film noir.
