Elsa Lanchester en “La novia de Frankenstein”, 1935

favourite scenes in film (in no particular order):

harry and sally watching casablanca - when harry met sally (1989)

harry: there are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance. 

sally: which one am i? 

harry: you’re the worst kind; you’re high maintenance, but you think you’re low maintenance. 

sally: i don’t see that. 

harry: you don’t see that? waiter, i’ll begin with a house salad, but i don’t want the regular dressing. i’ll have the balsamic vinegar and oil, but on the side. and then the salmon with the mustard sauce, but i want the mustard sauce on the side. “on the side” is a very big thing for you. 

sally: well, i just want it the way i want it. 

harry: i know, high maintenance. 

(casablanca ends with “i think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship”)

harry: oohh, best last line of a movie ever. 

sally: hmm…

harry: i’m definitely coming down with something. probably a twenty four hour tumor, they’re going around. 

sally: you don’t have a tumor. 

harry: how do you know? 

sally: if you’re so worried, go see a doctor. 

harry: no, he’ll just tell me it’s nothing. 

sally: will you be able to sleep? 

harry: if not, i’ll be ok. 

sally: what will you do?

harry: i’ll stay up and moan. maybe i should practice now (moans)

sally: goodnight, harry. 

harry: goodnight.
