Best 1940s Film Quotes

The best film quotes were born in the 1940s from some of the best films in history.

The Top Ten

1 "Put me in your pocket, Mike." - High Society

Hey there, Britgirl. Interesting list! My favourite of the 1940's quotes you posted is certainly from The Maltese Falcon '"The stuff that dreams are made of."
I also find very very lovely the quote 'Put me in your pocket, Mike' from High Society, but, you got very excited and you forgot that this is a 1950's film! )

When I listen to Vera Lynn's songs, I'll certainly comment on your list. I want to be in the right mood for Vera. If you like explore the lists 'Top Ten Great Songs That Make You Feel Edgy', 'Top Ten Most Sensual Songs' and 'Top Ten Songs That Send a Beautiful Message'. They are all Cookie's lists. I'm glad that you don't find it threatening that I'm a girl. As far as I know I'm not very dangerous or very evil!
Kisses to a nice, classy, friendly person called Britgirl!
