    Default The Catchphrases That Never Were

    I was just watching that wonderful foilm The Public Enemy with Jimmy Cagney & my BFF (who is a real film buff) assured me that Jimmy never uttered those immortal words "You dirty rat".

    And that got me thinking.

    Because it sems yheres a whole host of cathcphrases that wrere never uttered by the stars to whom they are attributed.

    e.g. JohnWayne: Get off your horse and drink your milk
    Bogey: Play it again Sam
    Geldof: Give me yer fecking money

    Any more?

    In 'Brief Encounter' Celia Johnson never actually said "...I'd just been to Boots to change my library book and order a coconut".

    The milk one was an impressionist though this one is worth hearing.

    Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.”

    the Casblanca one was wrong.

    Rick: You played it for her, you can play it for me!

    Sam: [lying] Well, I don't think I can remember...

    Rick: If she can stand it, I can! Play it!
    still one of the best films ever.

    Come out and take it you yellow bellied dirty rat.

    I imagine the yellow bellied bit was considered too much at the time.

    No, when he said that he just used to carry on sounding like Harold Wilson. Because he just did.
