John Huston took home two Oscars for his work on this film. He also helped his father earn one. It’s a true classic with a complicated story to tell.
“I told him the truth, and strange enough, he believed me.” – Irene Dunne as Lucy Warriner
“It’s like I was playing some kind of game, but the rules don’t make any sense to me. They’re being made up by all the wrong people. I mean no one makes them up. They seem to make themselves up.” – Dustin Hoffman as Ben Braddock
“Sometimes I wonder if I’ve changed so much my wife is even going to recognize me, whenever it is that I get back to her. And how I’ll ever be able to tell her about days like today.” – Tom Hanks as Captain Miller

“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.” – Teresa Wright as Carol Beldon
