Famous Last Words #4

Congrats to new poster Cerb Chaos for pouncing on last week's quote mere hours after I originally put it up. Yes, it's from Mervyn LeRoy's superlative social problem picture, I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang. The film, made in 1932, has a little bit of early sound-film staidness, but it still packs a punch, especially in the great performance from Paul Muni, and that chilling ending. Could a studio picture get away with that ending today? Doubt it.

Anyway, here's a quick one, while I'm away:

"I hope we never die."
"So do I."
"Do you think there’s any chance of it?"

Have at it.
