I noticed this in Clintīs White Hunter, Black Heart (1990) movie. A year after SL died


Well, maybe l am. But l figure there's two ways to live in this world.
One is you can crawl and kiss ass and write their happy endings. . .

. . .sign their long-term contracts and never take a chance on anything. . .

. . .and never fly,never leave Hollywood.

Save all your goddamn money,every cent of it.

And then when you're a healthy-looking   you die of a stroke. . .

. . .because whatever was wild in you has eaten away the muscles of your heart.

The other way is to let the chips fall where they may.

Refuse to sign their contracts and tell off the guy who can cut your throat. . .

. . .and flatter the little guy who's hanging by a thread that you hold.

John, maybe you shouldn't be in the picture business.

Well, maybe you're right, kid. Maybe l shouldn't.

Maybe l should've wandered the planet gambling on oil wells. . .

. . .or stolen diamonds or pimped for maharajahs.

Maybe you should've but you know why you didn't?

Because somewhere deep inside of you is a small, tiny spark of hope.

Hope, hell.

I'll die broke in a downtown Los Angeles flophouse. And l won't be bitter.

I'll have contributed maybe five,  damn good pictures.

They'll name a special Academy Award for me. And you know something?

All the wrong guys will get it. And l'll be in hell, laughing my ass off.

These are sentiments expressed by the John Huston character?


That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
