Be My Guest: Renata (Part 2)
Back for part two of my interview with Renata....
Renata: Ahhh Monty, definitely the 30s…but I also ADORE the early 40s.
Monty: Hey, the 30's is my favorite as well.
Monty: Name a few of your favorite modern stars.
Monty: A few other guests of mine feel the same way as you do Renata.
Monty: Name a few of your favorite modern films.
Renata: None! Believe me, I’ve tried so hard to like new stuff but I just can’t! Even before watching classic movies. I remember when Titanic came out in 1997 and all my friends were just CRAZY about it and they’d see it 5, 6 times. I was like OMG who caresss! Haha I guess I’ve always been like that. I just don’t care about new movies or new actors but of course, I know there are new movies that are quite good, it’s just that I do miss those old faces so much, what can I do.
Monty: I can understand that Renata. But I do love modern films as well as classics, not as much, but I do.
Monty: What are some of your favorite movie quotes?
Renata: That’s so hard!!
I love those quotes from “Love Affair” (the same ones Janine mentioned last month!). My favorite:
“Wishing are the dreams we dream when we’re awake”.
From “My Favorite Wife”: “Oh, you can’t do that, your honor. I’m legally dead. Do you think it’s nice to take money from a corpse?”.
I love the “Rebecca” one too. “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again”.
Greta Garbo’s “I want to be alone”
“I’m Big, it’s the Pictures that got Small” from “Sunset Boulevard”.
Fred Astaire in “Roberta”: “Every day you act worse, but today you’re acting like tomorrow”.
“The Walls of Jericho will protect you from the big bad wolf “ Clark Gable in “IT Happened One Night”.
“Gastronomy…the Stars” From “I remember Mama”.
“He’s gone ashore, he’s gone ashore” (Ruth Chatterton in “Dodsworth”)
Monty: Some choice quotes there Renata.
So that wraps up part two of my interview with Renata. Be back shortly for the final part.
