“Out of the Past,” is just a cool film and it gets intense while you watch it. At first it start outs a little slow, you may think that Robert Mitchum, is just a normal guy who works at a gas station then you learn more about him and his past. Like many people, our past catches up to us and that’s exactly what happens to Mitchum in this thriller. So if you love film noir, “Out of the Past,” is pretty wonderful. Not only is Mitchum in this film you get another great star, Kirk Douglas and let me not forget about Jane Greer, who is the spicy dame in this film.
So now that you got a little bit of what the film is about and who starred in it, you have to read these quote. Like every film noir, it has snappy dialogue known as hard-boiled slang and that’s one thing that makes a noir is the dialogue. If you think that classic films aren’t for you then watch a film noir and you may be surprised how better crime stories were back then than now. Now to the film quotes.
1. Jeff: They say the day you die your name is written on a cloud.
2. Kathie: You can’t make deals with a dead man, Jeff.
3. Whit: My feelings? About ten years ago, I hid them somewhere and haven’t been able to find them.
4. Whit: You just sit and stay inside yourself. You wait for me to talk. I like that.
Jeff: I never found out much listening to myself.
5. Jeff: I didn’t know you were so small.
Kathie: I’m taller than Napoleon.
Jeff: You’re prettier too.
6. Jeff: Doesn’t your conscience bother you, crossing a nice guy like that?
Meta: Maybe he isn’t such a nice guy. Maybe he crosses people too.
7. Ann: She can’t be all bad – no one is.
Jeff: No. She comes the closest.
8. Kathie: Don’t you see you’ve only me to make deals with now?
Jeff: Build my gallows high, baby.
9. Kathie: “I’m sorry he didn’t die.”
Jeff: “Give him time.”
10. Kathie: I don’t care. Just so they find us together. If you’re thinking of anyone else, don’t. It wouldn’t work. You’re no good for anyone but me. You’re no good and neither am I. That’s why we deserve each other.
