What do Casablanca, Star Wars, Jaws and Gone With the Wind have in common?
When The Hollywood Reporter polled 1,600 industry professionals for their top movie quotes of all time, lines from these four films ended up in the five of the top 10 spots for both men and women. Gone With the Wind’s final line, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn,” received the top spot among women and landed in second for men (it came in at No. 1 on the list overall). For men, "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse," from The Godfather, landed at No. 1.
Two quotes from Casablanca landed on both lists: "Here’s looking at you, kid" and "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine." In fact, Casablanca's writers Philip Epstein, Julius Epstein and Howard Koch won the Oscar for best screenplay in 1944. Philip Epstein’s son recently told THR that he keeps his late father’s Oscar in a safe, while the film’s iconic piano recently sold for over $3 million at a classic movie auction.
Overall, five quotes landed on the top 10 list for both genders, including famous lines from Star Wars and Jaws. Where they differ, the women chose lines from The Princess Bride, The Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, Fight Club and When Harry Met Sally, while the men went for quotes from The Godfather, Taxi Driver, The Dark Knight, The Terminator and Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back.
Below the video (in which a slew of actors perform their own favorite movie lines) are the top 10 quotes as voted on by both men and women.
