No, guess again. A clue there was a spin off TV series made from this movie.

I love these games but I'm so bad at them. I'm sure I'd only get an answer right if the quote was 'Frankly my dear I don't give a damn' :roll:

(Editing my reply because my computer choked and I responded to a quote from 2 pages ago. I'll try again later. Keep this game up, I love it, even though I've already screwed it up. Sorry.)

No, it's not Fred. Hint: Cary Grant. No, he didn't say it, but someone says it to him.

Could it have been Katherine Hepburn to Cary in Bringing Up Baby?

No, Charlie, that's not it. I guess this one is TOO hard! :o Should I just reveal the answer and let someone else have a turn?

Danielle (Brigitte Auber) talking to John Robie (Cary Grant) about the difference between herself and Francie (Grace Kelly) in To Catch a Thief. Anyone can take it from here and I'll retire, ha.

That's one of the possibilities I had thought, but I also had in mind "Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer", but when you said another "director" (meaning not Hawks) I guessed it had to be someone like Hitchcok, but I wasn't sure and didn't post again. Good line anyway!
