Picture, Quote, Movie #13

"One kill. Confirmed! It's a cruel world, Herr Hauptmann. You said so yourself." 

What movie?  Although the movie is usually said to be inspired by the comic strip character, in fact the idea came from a scene cut from The Archers’ previous film (“One of Our Aircraft is Missing”). A character says “You don’t know what it’s like to be old”. Film editor and future great director David Lean suggested a movie be constructed around that line.


  1. Somebody else can have a turn. If it is helpful, that is Harry Carey Jr. with Duke in the picture.

  2. The quote is from "The Blue Max." The George Peppard character spoke the line.

  3. The picture is from She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, one of John Ford's cavalry Westerns.

  5. 1. She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949)
    2. The Blue Max (1966)
    3. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)
