Just For Fun: Movie Quiz

If you’re looking for stimulating business news, please skip this post.  If, however, you just want to take a break for 10 minutes, continue on.

The AARP Bulletin had the 50 best things ever said in the movies in their latest edition.  Ok,  I admit it:  I am a ‘Senior Citizen’ by many definitions, I belong to AARP (great discounts!), and I find their two publications refreshingly youthful and positive.  So there.  Just for fun, I thought I’d reproduce the 50 quotes — less ten I thought were pretty lame — and challenge you to name either the movie or the actor who spoke the words.  If you think you have them, you can post your answers in a comment and the prize, to be awarded to everyone who gets all of them correct will be . . . the joy of having completed the task without error!  Here goes:

  1. Play it, Sam.  Play ‘As Time Goes By.’
