Quotable Quotes:

"The King Kong roar was a combination of a lion and tiger's roar combined and played backward very slowly. "

"I have never accepted what many people have kindly said, namely that I have inspired the nation. It was the nation and the race dwelling all around the globe that had the lion heart. I had the luck to be called upon to give the roar."

"Let's look at the name 'Father Christmas. It's obviously an Oedipal fantasy. Santa Claus is supposed to come down a chimney, a simulacrum for a vagina. Then he leaves presents, and children are always anxious about what kind. So it's really all about parents engaged in sex, an act that necessarily excludes the kids. (IMDB)"
