She’s already being remembered for her strong movie roles, including in To Have and Have Not, How to Marry a Millionaire, and Designing Woman.
Check out some of her best quotes below:
To Have and Have Not (Marie ‘Slim’ Browning)
You know you don’t have to act with me, Steve. You don’t have to say anything, and you don’t have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and… blow.
You know Steve, you’re not very hard to figure, only at times. Sometimes I know exactly what you’re going to say. Most of the time. The other times… the other times, you’re just a stinker.
The Big Sleep (Vivian Rutledge)
I don’t like your manners.
Speaking of horses, I like to play them myself. But I like to see them workout a little first, see if they’re front runners or comefrom behind, find out what their whole card is, what makes them run.
So you’re a private detective. I didn’t know they existed, except in books, or else they were greasy little men snooping around hotel corridors. My, you’re a mess, aren’t you?
How to Marry a Millionaire (Schatze Page)
I can’t shack up with a dame I’ve never met before and she’s crazy too!
Wealthy men are never old.
You wanna catch a mouse, you set a mouse trap. All right so we set a bear trap. Now all we gotta do, is one of us has got to catch a bear. … If you don’t marry him, you haven’t caught him, he’s caught you.
The first rule is, gentlemen callers have got to wear a necktie!
Designing Woman (Marilla Brown Hagen)
Mike Hagen: You’re not crying…? — Marilla Hagen: I’m considering it very seriously.
I’ll never understand what my husband was doing shoeless in your apartment.
Dogville (Ma Ginger)
A police car has just been seen in town and it has just made the turn up Canyon Road! So they’ll be here any minute.
Howl’s Moving Castle (Witch of the Waste)
It looks like your true love is in love with someone else!
The best part of that spell, is that you can’t tell anyone about it. My regards to Howl.
What a tacky little hat shop. I’ve never seen such tacky little hats. Yet you are by far the tackiest thing here.
