Lee J. Cobb


“As he pulls out his wallet to show them “facts”, out flies a picture of him with his son. He threatens everyone that he will not be intimidated. He glances at the picture, painfully rages at his own family’s relationships and his own sense of guilt, and tears the photograph to shreds. Broken and contrite, Juror # 3 sobs into his contorted fist: “Not guilty. Not guilty.”

12 Angry Men (1957) dir. Sidney Lumet


I got one. He’s 22 years old.

When he was nine years old, he ran away from a fight. I saw it. I was so embarrassed, I almost threw up. I said “I’m gonna make a man out of you if I have to break you in two tryin’.”

Well, I made a man out of him. When he was 16, we had a fight. Hit me in the jaw. He was a big kid. I haven’t seen him for two years. Kids. You work your heart out…


Some people think the Crucifixion only took place on Calvary. They better wise up! Taking Joey Doyle’s life to stop him from testifying is a crucifixion….And every time the Mob puts the pressure on a good man, tries to stop him from doing his duty as a citizen, it’s a crucifixion. And anybody who sits around and lets it happen, keeps silent about something he knows that happened, shares the guilt of it just as much as the Roman soldier who pierced the flesh of our Lord to see if he was dead. 

On the Waterfront (1954), directed by Elia Kazan.

A still from the original ending of The Exorcist, which was eventually cut from the film before its theatrical release in 1973. The scene was partially restored for the Director’s Cut, but due to missing audio the dialogue referencing to Casablanca was left out, which was as follows:

Lt. Kinderman: I’m reminded of a line in the film Casablanca. At the end Bogart says to Claude Rains, “Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
Fr. Dyer: You look a little bit like Bogart.
Lt. Kinderman: You noticed…
