Movie Quote Quiz

Margaret Drummond: The will to survive is strong, stronger than anything.

Adrienne Pargiter: You don't hate them do you?
Margaret Drummond: No.
Adrienne Pargiter: Why not?
Margaret Drummond: I've tried, but I can't bring myself to hate people. The worse they behave, the sorrier I feel for them.

Rosemary Leighton-Jones: Love is like a flame, it burns and is visible to all.

Topsy Merritt: You want me to give up food and soap and God knows what else, so I can starve and sing?

Factual error: The women have been starving in a Japanese prisoner of war camp for 3 years but seem to have suffered no physical ill-effects other than a healthy suntan and a fetching crop-style haircut. In the fight-in-the-shower scene (yes boys, this is nearly as good as it sounds) you get to see an array of perfect bodies with no sores, bruises, blisters, sunburn or any other signs that they have been doing hard labour under the blazing sun and seriously deprived of vitamins. At the end when they keep dying of starvation they're all just as plump and healthy as ever.
