30 memorable quotes said before dying ...
A great screen character doesn't necessarily need a great entrance but the exit MUST leave an indelible impact on the viewer's mind, and if by any chance (of lack of) the character dies, the chances are high that his or her last words shall never be forgotten by collective memories. This is a compilation of 30 quotes uttered by (mainly important or scene-stealing supporting) characters before their last gasp, or the following, expected or not, 'bang' or 'boom' ... and whether they see death coming and try to leave the world with style or honor, or don't see it but remain true to their nature, the last quote remaings their last shining cinematic moment. So, which of these 30 last words apart from the iconic and plot-defining "Rosebud" do you think is the most memorable?

The films released in 1939 are 75 years old this year. Which of these notable 1939 films is your favorite? Of this poll, IMDb Daily Poll Board member ElMaruecan82 said: "I think this is a terrific idea, but not because these films are turning 75 this year but because they happen to be from the greatest cinematic year ever: 1939. I believe the year deserves a little tribute in your descriptive text, something reminding us that Hollywood's Golden Age reached its pinnacle in 1939, before the Old World would forever collapse under Hitler's tanks ... like a last gasp of brightness, life and colors before the dark."
