The 1930's and 40's were the Golden Age for the motion picture industry. A world of gifted film makers migrated to Hollywood to weave their magic on screen. Many great movies won the Academy Award for best picture during this era, including It Happened One Night, Gone With the Wind, How Green Was My Valley, and Casablanca. Here are the five wisest quotes from an Oscar winning Best Picture during the Golden Age of film making.
1) "The fundamental things apply, as time goes by."
Casablanca (1943) - Sam (Dooley Wilson)
2) "You can be better than you are."
Going My Way (1944) - Father O'Malley (Bing Crosby)
3) "There is no fence nor hedge around time that is gone. You can go back
and have what you like if it, if you can remember."
How Green Was My Valley (1941) - Huw Morgan (Irving Pichel)
4) "With enough courage, you can do without a reputation."
Gone With the Wind (1939) - Rhett Butler (Clark Gable)
5) "I know how comfortable it is to curl up with a nice, fat book full of big words
and think you're going to solve all the problems in the universe. But you're not,
you know. A bit of action is required every now and then."
Mrs. Miniver (1942) - Carol Beldon (Teresa Wright)
