Who doesn’t have that song that you’ve sung badly all your life until one day you find out the truth? Everyone has their “bikini that changes without stopping” and that doesn’t just happen in the music business. The cinema also has several example phrases which have become very famous even though they have never appeared in a movie.
With that in mind, CinePOP has decided to separate for you ten example phrases that are classic in cinema, but which have never really been on the big screen. And you will be surprised!
Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Every self-respecting nerd has imitated villainous Darth Vader’s husky voice and uttered the classic line: “Luke, I am your father” (“Luke, I am your father”). Well, if you did it, you did it wrong. Such a phrase has never been seen in the film directed by Irvin Kershner and idealized by George Lucas. The correct sentence, in fact, is: “No, I am your father” (“No, I am your father”). In the scene, Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones) responds to Luke’s (Mark Hamill) accusation that he killed his father.
One of the greatest classics in film history, Casablanca also has the wrong quote to call its own. And, again, in a key scene in the production. Sorry after the brief reunion with Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), Rick (Humphrey Bogart) asks his bar pianist, Sam (Dooley Wilson), to play their music. The world remembers the scene as if Rick had said, “Play again, Sam.” But… what we hear the character say is “Play it, Sam. Play” Over time “” (“Play, Sam. Play” Over time “). The mistake became so well known that “Play it again, Sam” became the original title of Woody Allen’s play / book.
This one even made me put the DVD to watch before I published the article. Just before falling over the precipice after the confrontation with Balrog, Gandalf yells at the “Ring Society” to flee in the first chapter of The Lord of the Rings. Most people quote that the magician shouts “Run, fools” (“Run, your fools”). But it was not. In fact, the character played by Ian McKellen says “Fly, you fools”. Obviously, the meaning is the same. The flight was supposed to get away, but the initial choice shows a bit of the vocabulary of the then gray magician.
Everyone knows that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ expression begins with “mirror, mirror to me”, right? Well … the truth is, the original version of the sentence is a bit different. Popularly known as “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the most beautiful of all?” (“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is more beautiful than me?”), The real sentence is “Magic mirror on the wall, who is the most beautiful of all?” (“Magic mirror on the wall, which is the most beautiful of all?”).
A classic directed by Steven Spielberg, considered by many to be the first blockbuster in the history of the seventh art, Tubarão also has a mistaken quote running through people’s mouths. “We’re going to need a bigger boat!” (“We’re going to need a bigger boat!”) Has become a pop culture sensation and can be found even on T-shirts sold everywhere. But that’s not the phrase Roy Scheider used in the film. He said, “You’re going to need a bigger boat!” (“You will need a bigger boat!”).
Wall Street – Power and Greed (1987)
The Oliver Stone classic with Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen, the first Wall Street was known for the line “Greed is good”. But the way it was said in the movie was a little different. In fact, Gordon Gekko played by Douglas says, “The point is, ladies and gentlemen, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. (“The point, ladies and gentlemen, is that greed, in the absence of a better word, is good.”).
One of the greatest classics in the history of cinema. And Dorothy’s journey through the realm of Oz begins with a phrase that has come to be known in its bad form. Most people believe the young woman played by Judy Garland says, “I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto” (“I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto”). But, in fact, it’s a little different. The exact quote is: “Toto, I have a feeling we are no longer in Kansas” (“Toto, I have a feeling that we are no longer in Kansas”).
Starring Kevin Costner, Campo dos Sonhos is known to make people cry and immortalize the phrase “If you build it, they will come” (“If you build it, they will come”). It turns out that this is not the correct phrase heard in the function. It seems like an unimportant little detail, but the exact quote is “If you build it, it will come”. (“If you build it, it will come”).
“Hello, Clarice…” (“Hello, Clarice…”) in the voice of Hannibal Lecter created by Anthony Hopkins in The Silences of the Lambs causes chills to be remembered. Only you, and many people, just “remember” the wrong way. The correct sentence pronounced by one of the greatest villains in the history of the seventh art is in fact: “Good evening, Clarice…” (“Good evening, Clarice…”).
A masterpiece directed by Mike Nichols and starring Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft, A Man’s First Night (1967) is also regularly misquoted. And the scene in question is one of the most important in the film, the first meeting between Benjamin (Hoffman) and Mrs. Robinson (Bancroft). People often quote the phrase “Mrs. Robinson, are you trying to seduce me?” (“Mrs. Robinson, are you trying to seduce me?”), When, in fact, the right thing is “Mrs. Robinson, you are trying to seduce me. Is not it? (“Mrs. Robinson, you are trying to seduce me. Are you not?”).
