/ Classic film dialogue - without swearing?
I need (tonight) youtube clips of classic film dialogue.
Here's the kind of thing I need (ideally without the bloody subtitles)... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sRwUFob18A
It needs to have tension, drama, and def no swearing (it's for school kids).
Anyone help? Cheers
> Possibly not suitable, ie. the burning alive bit, but the closing scene of The Wicker Man is fantastic.
A great clip, however possibly not for the dialogue alone. Couldn't really show it to a class of 12 year olds.
Thank you anyway.
I'm away to bed now, so will check here again tomorrow.
There are some great clips going up here but some don't have tension or drama, just "cool lines"...
Thanks Jon! Jesse deserved that Oscar. I fear that the film is being too quickly forgotten. It is an instant classic.
Miller's Crossing's "look in your heart" scene in the woods would be ideal but I can't find a proper clip of it :-(
Good plan - he needs it non-sweary so look at older films. Nice thinking! :-)
All your best stuff will come from old court-room drama :-)
(especially b&w Stanley Kramer ones)
and something from Inherit Wind, maybe this? But not as tense as the Nuremberg stuff...
I've only just watched the clip linked in the OP.
I think my recommendations might be irrelevant! I was going off "It needs to have tension, drama" as opposed to "Here's the kind of thing I need". I don't sense much tension or drama in the dialogue on your clip, so I'm not sure exactly what you are after (unless there is more tension in that dialogue than it appears on the surface...but I have seen this film, in the last 3 months and on the big screen, so I don't think I've overlooked any nuances...hmm)
Wowsers! A huge thank you to you all - especially our resident film buff, Blue. (I had an inckling that you'd take a hold of this)
Ended up with the Chinatown clip. It had everything that was needed.
For the record, the Dead Man's Shoes clip I meant to post was this one... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqDqyKGtoKE Brilliant, but too sweary.
Thanks again - job done!
Aww I thought you would go for Maxi Schell bullying Judy Garland
"DID YOU SIT ON HIS KNEE?!"

Actually I didn't really. For some reason Chinatown sprang IMMEDIATELY to mind as an obvious contender, odd because I've only seen it once and it was more than 18 years ago, it's not like it's a big favourite of mine. It is a very famous denouement though, maybe that is why it sticks in my head.
