The Razor's Edge (1946 film) Quotes

Clifton Webb as Elliott Templeton

  • (Clifton Webb) "I'm afraid I haven't a very good account to give you of that young man, Louisa."
  • (Lucile Watson) "Oh?"
  • (Clifton Webb) "When he first came over to Paris, for Isabel's sake, I asked him to lunch to meet the sort of people he ought to know. He told me he didn't eat lunch."
  • (Lucile Watson) "Perhaps he doesn't."
  • (Clifton Webb) "And then, when I asked him to dinner, he said he couldn't come because he had no evening clothes. If I live to be a hundred, I will never understand how any young man could come to Paris without evening clothes."
  • (Lucile Watson) "Maybe he just didn't want to."
  • (Clifton Webb) "That's the most incredible reason for refusing an invitation I've ever heard in my life."
  • (Clifton Webb) "Though you've lived half your life in diplomatic society and half the capitals of the world, you remain hopelessly American."
  • (Clifton Webb) "You know, I've never been able to understand why, when there's so much space in the world, people should deliberately choose to live in the Middle West."
  • (Clifton Webb) "The enjoyment of art is the only remaining ecstasy that's neither immoral nor illegal."
  • (Clifton Webb) "Am I right in surmising that you thought that if you could get him to come back here, it was almost inevitable that the inevitable should happen?"
  • (Gene Tierney) "No one could put it more, delicately."
  • (Clifton Webb) "We know what the consequences may be when a poor girl strays from the narrow path of virtue."

Herbert Marshall as W. Somerset Maugham

  • (Herbert Marshall) "I'm afraid you'll find the company mixed."
  • (Clifton Webb) "Don't you believe it. There'll be none of this confounded democracy there"
  • (Clifton Webb) "."
  • (Herbert Marshall) "Elliott, what the devil's that crown doing over your initials?"
  • (Clifton Webb) "His Holiness has been graciously pleased to revive, in my favor, my old family title."
  • (Herbert Marshall) "Your what?"
  • (Clifton Webb) "Oh, didn't you know? I'm descended, in the female line, from the Count de Lauria, who came over to England with Philip II to marry the maid of honor to Queen Mary. As an American citizen, I feel it more modest not to use my title except on all my personal linen."
  • (Herbert Marshall) "Elliott has no friends, only acquaintances."
  • (Herbert Marshall) "You've always looked upon nature as an impediment to social intercourse."
  • (Herbert Marshall) "You see, my dear; goodness is, after all, the greatest force in the world."

Fritz Kortner as Kosti

  • (Fritz Kortner) "You're a rum one, Larry. But what about all the answers to those profound questions you've been asking yourself? Don't you know, people have been asking those same questions for thousands of years?"
  • (Tyrone Power) "Yes, but doesn't the fact that people have been asking those same questions for thousands of years only go to prove that they can't help asking?"
  • (Fritz Kortner) "Very good, very good. You're not altogether stupid. As a matter of fact, you sound like a very religious man who doesn't believe in God."
  • (Tyrone Power) "I'm not sure that I believe in anything."
  • (Fritz Kortner) "You sound like a very religious man who does not believe in God."

Tyrone Power as Larry Darrell

  • (Tyrone Power) "If I ever acquire wisdom, I suppose I'll be wise enough to know what to do with it."
  • (Tyrone Power) "We could go down to Capri for our honeymoon and then in the fall we could go to Greece. Remember how we used to talk about traveling all over the world together?"
  • (Gene Tierney) "Of course, I want to travel. But, not like that. Cheap restaurants. Third rate hotels. Besides, I want to have babies, Larry."
  • (Tyrone Power) "Alright, darling, we'll take them along with us."
  • (Gene Tierney) "Oh, Larry, you're so impractical. You don't know what you are asking me to do. I'm young. I want to have fun. Do all the things people do. We wouldn't have a friend in the world."
  • (Tyrone Power) "Isabel, stop exaggerating. We'll do everything you want to do and we'll do it together."
  • (Gene Tierney) "Oh, listen, darling, if you hadn't a cent to your name and got a job that brought you 3000 a year, I'd marry you without a minute's hesitation. I'd cook for you. I'd make beds. I wouldn't care what I wore. I'd think it was fun; because, I'd felt it was only a question of time until you'd make good. But, this means living like this all our lives. With nothing to look forward to. It's asking too much. Oh Larry, you've had your fling now. For your own sake, I beg of you to come home with us."
  • (Tyrone Power) "I wouldn't make you happy if I did. You see, what you forget is that I want to learn as passionately as, well, as Gray, for example, wants to make a lot of money. I came over here because I was restless and because my mind was muddled. I came looking for the answers to a lot of questions. Some of them I've found. Others, I may never find. But, I can't stop now. Oh, I know its sounds vague and trivial compared with, well, compared with everything that's happening at home today. And I know I'm being very difficult. But, I can't stop now, Isabel. I just can't."
  • (Gene Tierney) "But, what would happen to America if everyone did as your doing?"
  • (Tyrone Power) "The answer to that is that everyone doesn't feel as I do. Fortunately, for themselves, most people are just content to follow the normal course and take things as they are. Oh, I wish I could too. But, I know if I tried I'd just make a mess of your life and mine too."
  • (Gene Tierney) "But, what's this all going to lead to?"
  • (Tyrone Power) "I don't know. It may be that when I'm through, I will have found something to give that people will be glad to take. It's just a chance. But, even if I fail, I shan't be any worse off than a fellow who's gone into business and hasn't made a go of it."
  • (Gene Tierney) "Then, there's nothing more to be said."
  • (Tyrone Power) "The only thing that makes me unhappy is making you unhappy. I don't think I'll ever find peace until I make up my mind about things. It's so difficult to put into words. The minute you try, you feel embarrassed. You say to yourself, who am I to bother my head about this, that or the other. Wouldn't it be better just to follow the beaten path and let what's coming to you, come? And then I think, of a guy I knew, a minute before he was full of life and fun, and then -- he was dead. I've seen many men die; but, this one was different. It was the last day of the war, almost the last moment. He could have saved himself, but, he didn't. He saved me, and, died. So, he's gone and I'm here, alive. Why? It's all so meaningless. You can't help but ask what life is all about. Whether there's any sense to it or whether it's just a stupid blunder."

Gene Tierney as Isabel Bradley

  • (Gene Tierney) "But I don't want to live on $3000 a year."
  • (Gene Tierney) "Larry, how can you bear to sit here in a backwash, when America is living through the most glorious adventure the world has ever known? You've been away a year now, a whole year out of your life. You just can't go on loafing for ever. Or, can you?"
  • (Tyrone Power) "It's possible."
  • (Gene Tierney) "You think you're very clever."
  • (Clifton Webb) "I don't think it. I know it."
  • (Gene Tierney) "You can be wonderfully disagreeable when you like, Uncle Elliott."
  • (Clifton Webb) "I know, it's one of my most cherished gifts."

Anne Baxter as Sophie MacDonald

  • (Anne Baxter) "Well, I'd better get back to my boyfriend. He'll raise the roof. He's a sulky brute, but quite a man."

Lucile Watson as Louisa Bradley
