Famous quotes containing the words kansas city, circle, critics, kansas, city and/or film:

    Kansas City is lost; I am here!
    —A. Edward Sullivan. Professor Quail (W.C. Fields)

    And year by year our memory fades
    From all the circle of the hills.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    Critics generally come to be critics not by reason of their fitness for this, but of their unfitness for anything else. Books should be tried by a judge and jury as though they were a crime, and counsel should be heard on both sides.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.... Now I know we’re not in Kansas.
    Noel Langley (1898–1981)

    I’m darned if I understand you city folks. Always rushing, rushing. Always thinking about the future. No wonder you have stomach trouble.
    James Poe (1921–1980)

    The motion picture is like a picture of a lady in a half- piece bathing suit. If she wore a few more clothes, you might be intrigued. If she wore no clothes at all, you might be shocked. But the way it is, you are occupied with noticing that her knees are too bony and that her toenails are too large. The modern film tries too hard to be real. Its techniques of illusion are so perfect that it requires no contribution from the audience but a mouthful of popcorn.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)
