Most observers agree that Rainer won her Oscar as the result of her moving and poignant performance in just one, single scene in the picture, the famous telephone scene in which the broken-hearted Held congratulates Ziegfeld over the telephone on his upcoming marriage to Billie Burke while trying to retain her composure and her dignity. During the scene, the camera is entirely focused on Rainer, and she delivers a tour-de-force performance. Seventy years later, it remains one of the most famous scenes in movie history.
The light did him harm, but not as much as looking at things did; he resolved, having done it once, never to move his eyeballs again. A dusty thudding in his head made the scene before him beat like a pulse. His mouth had been used as a latrine by some small creature of the night, and then as its mausoleum.Sir Kingsley Amis
He nothing common did or mean Upon that memorable scene: But with his leener eye The axe's edge did try.Andrew Marvell
When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before youa tree, a house, a field, or whatever. Merely think, here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streakof yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact colour and shape, until it gives your own naive impression of the scene before you.Claude Monet
It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.edward bulwer-lytton
Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen. On the farm the weather was the great fact, and men's affairs went on underneath it, as the streams creep under the ice. But in Black Hawk the scene of human life was spread out shrunken and pinched, frozen down to the bare stalk.willa cather
The self ... is not an organic thing that has a specific location, whose fundamental fate is to be born, to mature, to die; it is a dramatic effect arising diffusely from a scene that is presented.erving goffman
I didn't know whether to run from my seat...I was in the line of fire. My desk is now a crime scene.nicole lapin
I never think of poetry or the poetry scene, only separate poems written by individuals.philip larkin
And once again the scene was chang’d,New earth there seem’d to be,I saw the Holy CityBeside the tideless sea;The light of God was on its streets,The gates were open wide,And all who would might enter,And no one was denied.No need of moon or stars by night,Or sun to shine by day,It was the new Jerusalem,That would not pass away.fred weatherly
Funny scene, likesay, how aw the psychos seem tae ken each other, ken what ah means, likes?Irvine Welsh
He heard that whenever a woman was to blame for a disappointment, the best way to avoid a scene was to inculpate oneself.max beerbohm
John Howard turned the prime ministership into something like a state police minister. He's at the scene of every crime, twice a day on radio, the guy did no thinking.paul keating
While we had France for an enemy, Germany was the scene to employ and baffle her arms.
He nothing common did, or mean, Upon that memorable scene.Andrew Marvell
A long, exact, and serious comedy; In every scene some moral let it teach, And, if it can, at once both please and preach.Alexander Pope
I had no inkling that the new substance would also come to be used beyond medical science, as an inebriant in the drug scene. Since my self-experiment had revealed LSD in its terrifying, demonic aspect, the last thing I could have expected was that this substance could ever find application as anything approaching a pleasure drug.
Give me, indulgent gods! with mind serene, And guiltless heart, to range the sylvan scene; No splendid poverty, no smiling care, No well-bred hate, or servile grandeur, there.Edward Young
Funny scene, likesay, how aw the psychos seem tae ken each other, ken what ah means, likes?
The noisy and extensive scene of crowds without company, and dissipation without pleasure.Edward Gibbon
Man, I can barely tell who's getting stabbed in this scene.
Faithis the Pierless Bridge Supporting what We see Unto the scene that We do not.
