This one is a dead loss, not only because no one has found the quote but also because I can no longer identify it. Alan Bates said it in a Steven Seagal movie (Bates must have been desperate for work), but I'll be damned if I can remember which movie. IMDB's two-matching search used to be helpful but no longer is. So let's just forget about whether Hitler was crazy or just stupid and instead go with:

Robert Redford in The Candidate. It's the last line spoken in the movie and the first line written for the script.

Unfortunately, it's a nonspecific line and is also spoken in Cool Hand Luke, 12 Angry Men, The Thing, Basic Instinct, Dogma, Sister Act, Evil under the Sun, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Godzilla, Wag the Dog, The World Is Not Enough and many, many more (I got tired of looking them up).

That's similar to what's been said about The Counselor, another Brad Pitt movie.

For instance, The Counselor says it's neither governments nor corporations that run the world, it's the drug cartels. And nobody wants to believe that.

Phantom of the Opera.

The question should have been phrased giving only the quote, and the answer should have been "Nelson Eddy".

Oh dear, I was thinking I was in the Trivia topic. The correct answer is Maytime.

Now for a real quote:

"I was sheriff of this county when I was twenty-five years old. Hard to believe. My grandfather was a lawman; father too. Me and him was sheriffs at the same time; him up in Plano and me out here. I think he's pretty proud of that. I know I was."

Easy-peasy..Shatner in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The YOU was played by Christopher Lloyd, and Kirk kicked him off a cliff into a fiery chasm on the Genesis planet. Loved that scene. smile
