Thanks to my friend Simon, I have found this lovely compilation of Hollywood film clips featuring what is claimed to be the most overused line in cinema.
I’m sure Ivan, the resident Film and Old-Time Radio guru at Thrilling Days of Yesteryear, could check out the validity of that claim... but I also suspect that it’s not the kind of line you would have heard coming from Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Charles Laughton, Clark Gable, Errol Flynn, or Harpo Marx. (Especially not Harpo Marx.) Not onscreen, anyway.
[Is it my imagination, or does Bruce Willis appear in an awful lot of these clips?]
