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)

"David Benjamin Rakoff will always be remembered for his brilliant wit, sharp observations, and profound insights on life, art, and the world around us. His unique voice and perspective touched the hearts of many and his legacy will continue to inspire generations to come. (V)"
