Michael Crichton Died Of Cancer Last Night Unexpectedly

After a very great night for this country, I found out that Michael Crichton (Jurrasic Park and ER) passed away from cancer that he kept private. In December 1994, he achieved the unique distinction of having the #1 movie (Jurassic Park), the #1 TV show (ER), and the #1 book (Disclosure).

AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Movie Quotes

AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie QuotesPart of the AFI 100 Years… series, AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Movie Quotes is a list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema. The American Film Institute revealed the list in 2005 in a three-hour television program on CBS. The program was hosted by actor Pierce Brosnan and had commentary from many Hollywood actors and filmmakers.

I know this was broad casted in 2005 but a conversation that I had with someone reminded me of it and I wanted to blog it.

Casablanca has the most quotes of any movie on the list, with six. Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz are next, with three each. Fourteen different actors, ten men and four women, each have two or more quotations attributed to them. Leading this select ensemble is Humphrey Bogart, who has five, four of them from Casablanca. Bette Davis and Vivien Leigh are tied for the most quotations by an actress, with three. Marlon Brando, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman and Al Pacino also have three apiece. James Cagney, Sean Connery, Clint Eastwood, Charlton Heston, Judy Garland, Jack Nicholson, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gloria Swanson each have two.
