"God rot all royals!"
Pay no attention to the title.

time for a new hint?

How about some random guesses first? You guys gotta show how far off the mark you are before I render any assistance.
well, it's not Cromwell or a Tale of Two Cities .ht..
the Six Wives of Henry Viii?
A Man for All Seasons?
11-07-2005, 03:24 PM
a man for all seasons... there's a good guess.
along those lines: Beckett??
The Man in the Iron Mask?

hahah lets name every movie that takes place in 1700-1880 europe... are we at least thinking the right genre?
three muskateers? Four muskateers?
the scarlet pimpernel?
if we're not on the right lines i'll eat my bonnet. Random guesses out of the way, give us a DATE!
11-07-2005, 04:02 PM
the lion in winter?
that does me in for random guesses too..

You guys are on the job. You're pretty close on the period. Tell you what, how about a hint?
The full quote is: "God rot all royals! Give us the wisdom of the Americans!"
That should throw the period into sharp relief.

gotta be 1800ish... gotta be england/england related.. hrmm...along the ship lines:
mutiny on the bounty?
wild guessing in the dark won't really do it for us though.. another quote might, or another hint...

LOL Good movie quote Jzero (I cheated!)
There are a few people around these boards (damn few) that might guess it from a line, but it will be more likely guessed from clues /images/graemlins/smile.gif
I've seen it and it is a GREAT movie, but I would have never guessed a line from it.
Well done sir!

Blankslatejoe is right about the time period. No ships in the movie, though. It's more.... political. I'll wait a few more guesses before I throw another hint. Don't worry, I have one quote that will give it away for sure.
Dukester, thanks, that means a lot coming from a Quotemaster™ like yourself!
1800-ish would make it regency-ish ... er ...
The Madness of King George?
11-08-2005, 09:42 AM
Whoop! Danr got it! Good guessing.
"The Madness of King George"
As Dukester says, a great film. You wouldn't believe that anyone could make you feel sympathetic with George V, but it does, even though it still shows he was a monumental jerkwad. This is a movie that you have to know some British history for, i.e. who William Pitt was, and so forth. Good thing I watched a lot of 'Blackadder the Third'!
And the giveaway quote? --> "The King's water is blue!"
11-08-2005, 11:00 AM
nooo man, the giveaway quote would have been:
"I control the weather... with my mind!"
good film... haven't seen it in YEARS though..
11-08-2005, 02:09 PM
Oh, WHATEVER! Poindexter!
i saw JFK the other day ... didn't think it painted a particularly accurate picture of Lincoln's assasination. It was all a bit too modern really
