Quote of the week

It's nothing new that I pretty much got stuck in the old movie times. I'm not at all up-to-date concerning new movies and I don't even mind. Probably because I am a classic myself *grin*

So I picked a quote from a classic for today. Actually according to my mother it was the first movie I ever watched from beginning to end and I still love it today.
When I hear Homer Smith and the nuns sing "Amen" together, I get all mushy.
Sidney Poitier got the Academy Award as Best Actor for this movie.

The quote I picked is:
"Oh! Why couldn't they have asked me to build a bathtub? With nice, hot water?"(Homer splashing himself with cold water outside)

Lilies of the Field, USA, 1963
