Pictures

Famous quotes containing the word pictures:

    We don’t know any more about pictures than a kangaroo does about metaphysics.... To us, the great uncultivated, it is the last thing in the world to call a picture. Brown said it looked like an old fire- board.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Sam Goldwyn said, “How’m I gonna do decent pictures when all my good writers are in jail?” Then he added, the infallible Goldwyn, “Don’t misunderstand me, they all ought to be hung.” Mr. Goldwyn didn’t know about “hanged.” That’s all there is to say.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    I am big. It’s the pictures that got small.
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)
