(Courier Mail)   Instead of saying the iconic line, "I'll be back," Arnold Schwarzenegger argued with James Cameron that he should say, "I will be back" because it sounded more masculine. These are the things a Hollywood actor dwells upon   (couriermail.com.au) divider line 58

GBB: Would have been great if he would have done a hit of helium for that shot.

Mugato: Actually, it does sound more robotic.


There is an unspoken rule that cyborgs can not use contractions.

Mugato: Feral_and_Preposterous: Mugato: Actually, it does sound more robotic.

Data agrees.

That was a silly plot point wasn't it? Android with a positronic brain, can make near infinite calculations per second and can't use contractions.


Unless it's a time of stress, of course.

/it's me!

An interesting fact... The use of contractions makes the person sound more believeable... So, for instance, if you are being interogated by the cops, its better to say, "I didn't kill her", rather than "I did not kill her".

The original script read "I'll come back"

At the same time, Rutger Hauer's famous death monologue in Blade Runner was totally ad-libbed.

So the director shouldn't tell the dumb-jock actor to STFU and follow the script in all cases. Just this one.

Oznog: markfara: Teaser: Frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a damn.

Gable's memoirs reveal that that line was originally, "I don't give a flying f*ck. Kiss my rich, white ass, you goddam b*tch!" But Gable and George Cukor discussed it and decided that it was too subtle.

IIRC there was a question over whether the Censorship Board which existed at the time would allow such scandalous swearing, and were considering "Frankly, Scarlett, I don't really care".


You do remember right, and IIRC, Cukor fought like hell to keep it as written by Mitchell. It's a direct quote from the novel. And I think it's "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."

it was modified by Hauer, not "totally ad-libbed".
