friday movie quote

Poughkeepsie

“All right, you put a shiv in my partner. You know what that means? Goddammit, all winter long I got to listen to him gripe about his bowling scores. Now I’m gonna bust your ass for those three bags, and I’m gonna nail you for picking your feet in Poughkeepsie.”

-Popeye Doyle (Gene Hackman), The French Connection (1971)

Happy 85th Birthday to Gene Hackman, one of my favorite actors.

    Man, I remember seeing this flick in a REAL theater…on a BIG screen.
    A fantastic movie for it’s time…AND a damn good BOOK, too.

    Nice choice.

    Have a great weekend and roll safe out there.
