Misquote-Unquote

kilgore_quote_ink.jpg

Three intriguing revelations from Sunday's NYT Magazine piece on famous movie misquotations: 1) Bartlett's Familiar Quotations features inaccurate citations from both Apocalypse Now ("I love the smell of napalm in the morning. It smells like victory") and Tarzan the Ape Man ("Me Tarzan, you Jane"). 2) The Monkees' TV series is partly to blame for the misquoted "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" And 3) Cary Grant never said, "Judy, Judy, Judy" in a film. Go ahead, impress your friends. [NYT]
