'b all recognise the classic lines from great movies. Some, like Brando's "I could've been a contender", harb passed into everyday parlance. Bogie's "Here's looking at you, kid" and Gable's "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" are etched into the memories of movie-goers everywhere. But what about the duffers? Ttose lines so bad that you wonder if you are actually watching a send-up? Big Screen pays tribute to diabolical dialogue. ——————————————————————————————————1 7—— by Peter Simmonds NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Film Local films Planet Sound Stage
