Strange Cargo (1940) Poster


Clark Gable: Verne



  • André Verne : Whenever you want sanctuary, babe, here's where you'll find it.

    [tapping thumb to chest] 

    André Verne : Right here, in the ol' temple.

    Julie : Don't tap your heart, you'll break your finger. And if you're sanctuary, I'll take whatever else is lying around.

  • André Verne : You hate hard, baby, so you love hard.

  • André Verne : [after the hostile Julie unexpectedly helps him win a fight by throwing a skillet]  Shall I say "thanks," baby, or were you just waving at something?

  • André Verne : A woman'd be a chump to go on with a guy like me, wouldn't she? What could she win? It's what you call makin' it the hard way. You can't travel that way, can ya baby?

    Julie : Maybe that's it. But you'd do me a favor and drag me along with you anyway, wouldn't ya? From sewer to sewer.

    André Verne : But on plush cushions!

  • André Verne : I said, where you from, baby?

    Julie : Marseille.

    André Verne : Marseille? Hmm, hot blue nights, the right kind of music, it's a date.

    Julie : A romantic convict. What are you in for? Stealing doilies?

  • André Verne : I'll take all they've got, for a little of this. I don't know what you'll look like tomorrow, but right now, baby, you're the most beautiful dame in the world. Does that mean anything to you?

    Julie : Not a thing!

    André Verne : No. Supposing I wasn't a convict? Supposing I was sailing through on my yacht or a guy selling brushes?

    Julie : Yeah, suppose I was Snow White!

  • André Verne : It don't make sense, here, this one will start you talking to yourself, listen,"So, God created man in his own image." How do you like that? Now, take a look at me. Do I look like a god to you? This forsaken place is full of gods, I suppose. Only, they're not working at it right now, they're gods' on a holiday! Answer that one.

    Cambreau : It sounds simple enough. I think it means that each man has some of the qualities of God inside him, if he wants them and if he looks for them.

  • André Verne : So you outsmarted me, huh?

    Julie : That's what happens, they tell me, when smart people get together. One of them winds up ahead.

  • Moll : I see you brought a friend along with you, too. Always room for one more in the boat.

    Julie : And if there isn't, you can always stay behind.

    Moll : We'll cut up our rations with you and our water. What do you say?

    André Verne : Big-hearted, ain't you Moll.

    Moll : Why not. We're all together, aren't we? Everything is share and share alike, with us. With all of us, ain't it! With everything.

    André Verne : Sure it is, with everything that's yours if not mine. Do you get that, Moll? And do you get it, you mugs? Take a good look, because that's all that any of you are going to get.

  • André Verne : Hey, baby, stop messing around with the crew and get back here. You belong at the Captain's table, don't ever forget that.

  • André Verne : I've got an idea, Grideau. Give me twelve hours to get out and put her


    André Verne : in the dormatory. That way everybody's happy.
