Quotes
Host: The greatest screen heroes are those with whom most people can identify.
Share this
Host: [about a close-up of Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe] Gable... Monroe... these are only two of the magical names that conjure up almost a lifetime of wondrous illusion. They are among a handful of unique personalities who belong on the roster of great stars, those in whose images audiences over the years have found some illusive fulfillment. The climate that produced them has changed, but the affection born out of need for them remains. This is essentially a love story, a story that begins when there were no stars.

Host: [Last lines] The old system that produced the great stars has passed, but the need to identify with the heroes and heroines of the screen will always remain. Perhaps there may be fewer stars in the future, but it's certain that from time to time in a darkened theater something like a miracle will happen when a sudden excitement , a sense of recognition. and then a feeling akin to love will mean a great new star is born. This is Henry Fonda.
