When Billy Wilder sent me the script of Double Indemnity and I read it.. I had never played an out-and-out killer. I had played medium heavies, but not an out-and-out killer. And because it was an unsympathetic character I was a little frightened of it and, when I went back to his office I said: "I love the script and I love you, but I am a little afraid after all these years of playing heroines to go into an out-and-out cold-blooded killer." And Mr. Wilder - and rightly so - looked at me and he said, "Well, are you a mouse or an actress?" And I said, "Well, I hope I’m an actress." He said, "Then do the part." And I did and I’m very grateful to him. - Barbara Stanwyck

  • Americans: I was in Florida, I drove for nine hours, now I'm still in Florida.
  • #australians: i drove for nine hours #now i'm nine hours away from home #no one is here #the streets are empty #how did this happen #where has civilisation gone #i am alone in the universe #oh wait no there's an echidna it's okay
  • Canadians: We left Toronto 2 days ago, We are still in Ontario, food is scarce. We are lost, soon we will have to eat each other to survive, oh wait there's a tims we're good.
  • Russians: I was in Yakutia, I drove for twenty eight hours, now I'm still in Yakutia, I travelled by train for 6 days, I'm still in Russia. Don't even try to leave Russia. Don't forget: you're here forever. Accept it and suffer.
