Film quote of the day

“Buster, I’m going to try to explain something to you that you probably don’t understand. When a man’s hurt he bleeds until he either dies or the blood coagulates. If the bleeding stops, one day the wound becomes a scar and then, if he’s lucky, one day that scar will become only a memory. Now, Eddie, you’d better just let me bleed a little or I’m going to throw you right through that fuckin’ window.”

Budd Boetticher, film director
(from his memoir When in Disgrace)
