As Captain Blood (1935) went into production, Warner Brothers insisted that Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn rehearse scenes without filming—to get a sense of whether the “two amateurs,” as Jack Warner called them, could carry an important movie together. One day during this trial period, Olivia and Errol both happened to return to the set early after lunch, before any other cast or crew members had arrived. She later recalled:
[H]e asked me—he was 25 years of age when this happened, and I was still 18—he said to me, “What do you want out of life?” and I thought, “What an extraordinary question to be asked! Nobody has asked me that ever.” And in fact, nobody ever did in the years that followed, and I said, “I would like respect for difficult work well done.”
And then I said, “Well, what do you want out of life?” and he said, “I want success.” And what he meant by that was fame and riches, both of which he certainly did achieve, but when he said it, I thought, “But that’s not enough,” and indeed, it proved in Errol’s life not to be enough. [x]
If a girl went out shooting guys for rejecting her, she would just be called a crazy bitch. No one would defend her for being “lonely”. No one would say it’s the men’s fault for not dating her. Yet people are defending a man for his crime of shooting women who rejected him. And that pisses me off.
“We have phases in our lives, and those phases have an end. You have to understand nothing last forever, not even your captain Steven Gerrard. It was going to happen someday. He’s been through a lot of things. If you admire him and love him this much, you have to respect his decision.”

”Now they perceived that she was indeed a true princess, as she had claimed, because she had felt the pea through twenty mattresses and the twenty eiderdown quilts. No one, surely, but a true princess could be as sensitive as that.”
I despise that some women who have drivers licenses will not drive on the highway, or drive long distances, or unfamiliar places. They get their husbands to do it, or a friend, or they won’t go. It really irks me. Ooooh, little ole me can’t handle a highway, I need a man to do this. End rant.
Bellamy and Clarke fall through a sheet of ice into a cave, where they have to find a way out since where they were drowned out their distress signals for help. Without the right equipment, little food, and temperatures below freezing it was inevitable they would die fairly quick. They need to work together to survive before the mountain takes them like it has the others before them.
