Presenting the 1957 Retro Filmspot nominees for Best Line:

  • "I am constantly surprised that women's hats do not provoke more murders." (Witness for the Prosecution)
  • "I'd hate to take a bite outta you. You're a cookie full of arsenic." (Sweet Smell of Success)
  • "She's a high-riding woman... with a whip!" (Forty Guns)
  • "The arrangement of your features is not entirely repulsive to me." (Silk Stockings)
  • "You're dead son. Get yourself buried." (Sweet Smell of Success)
I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I nom'd three of those.

Shame not enough people understand the greatness of the Zero Hour! screenplay.

That "pure" one cracks me up. I'll probably vote for it.

I don't understand what makes a nominee "biased".

The people who voted for the Forty Guns line only did so because they're part of a pro-Samuel Fuller cabal, the only purpose of which is to trick unsuspecting people into watching bad movies because they think it's funny.

I'm arrogant enough to assume this is directed at me so I'll clarify. I like Sam Fuller, but 1957 was not a good year for him.

"Kill da wabbit! Kill da wabbit! Kill da wabbit!" wasn't even FYC'd? We suck at this.

Oops. Is there anything in the Filmspot bylaws about write-in campaigns?
