Besides loving photography, I’m a big fan of movies. Over the past 12 days on Twitter I posted two quotes a day from some of my favorite films. I have a lot of favorite films and a wide range of genres that I like, from classic black and white dramas to modern day comedies. Speaking… or NOT speaking of modern times, too bad I couldn’t really quote any Charlie Chaplin films such as from Modern Times.
Here are the quotes from those 24 films along with poster art from them.
