Strange Cargo (1940) Poster


Joan Crawford: Julie



  • 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.

  • Julie : And as for going around with you, I still pick my own gutters

  • Julie : Don't give me any of that Sister-come-to-Salvation. Look, I'm not buying any. I know the routine. It starts out with a prayer, and ends up with a Bible in one hand and me in the other!

  • Julie : When you've drifted as much as I have then you're glad to drop anchor - even if it is in the mud.

  • 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 : So you outsmarted me, huh?

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

  • Julie : Remember this Pig, you're the one man in the world I could never get low enough to touch. Now, get outta here and leave me alone!

  • 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.
