INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Brian Abrams.
Price visits with bestselling author Brian Abrams and discuss the author’s new book.
Iconic movie lines have long dominated pop culture — a simple line in a film can turn into its own entity, almost outliving the film itself! Brian Abrams explores this phenomenon in “You Talkin’ to Me?”: The Definitive Guide to Iconic Movie Quotes, an endlessly fascinating look at classic Hollywood movie quotes from Casablanca to Dirty Harry and The Godfather to Mean Girls.
“You Talkin’ To Me?” is an exploration of how dialogue can transcend context and impact culture, define actors’ careers, and become cemented in the modern lexicon.
Beginning with the 1920’s with the first feature-length film with sound, The Jazz Singer, which introduced the likes of “Wait a minute! Wait a minute! You ain’t heard nothin’ yet”, “You Talkin’ to Me?” dives into each era of film thereafter, granting readers an intimate look into films we love, films we forgot, or films we’ve never seen yet have somehow heard time and time again.
Some familiar quotes explored include:
• “Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?” —Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
• “That’ll be the day.”—The Searchers (1956)
• “They call me Mister Tibbs!”—In the Heat of the Night (1967)
• “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”—Jaws (1975)
And many more!
“You Talkin’ to Me?” is a fascinating, and exhaustively reported look at all the iconic Hollywood movie quotes we know and love and the ultimate treat for movie buffs, pop culture mavens, and appreciators of eccentric history. In the words of Will Hunting from the 1997 film Good Will Hunting, “How do you like them apples?”
