The Long, Hot Summer...


Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward as
Ben Quick & Clara Varner in 1958's
The Long, Hot Summer.



"Mr. Quick, I am a human being.
Do you know what that means?




It means I set a price on myself. A high, high price. You may be surprised to know it, but I've got quite a lot to give. I've got things I have been savin' up my whole life. Things like love and understanding and...and...jokes, and good times, and good cooking.

I'm prepared to be the Queen of Sheba for some lucky man, or at the very least the best wife any man could hope for. Now that's my human history & it's not gonna be bought and sold and it's certainly not gonna be given away to any passin' stranger."
