For English I have to find a speech to analyze. She says I can use a movie monologue. Any ideas? I was thinking Patton's speech but she vetoed that due to profanity. So it has to be clean.

I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

cant think of any right now. I was thinking about don vito corleone adressing the 5 families after sonny got killed, but I don't think it counts as a speech.

Tuco's monologue to bedridden Blondie.

Thanks a good one! I'll have to consider it.

My fave movie monologue is Anton Walbrook's "exile" speech in THE LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP (written by Emeric Pressburger). It never fails to move me to tears, and is a mini masterpiece of screen writing.

From the theatre, most of Beckett's late plays are monologues, veering dramatically from the farcical, the comic to the unendurably sad, such as Krapp's memory of his mother's death in KRAPP'S LAST TAPE.

I always like Burle Ives monologue at the end of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."

If I might suggest, try to find "A Man For All Seasons".  I know that there's a play transcript online somewhere, and if I could find it again I'll give it to you.  (There was also a reasonably faithful movie of it of course.)  There are some great speeches in that, particularly Thomas More's final speech to the jury: "Nevertheless, it is not for the supremacy that you sought my blood, but because I would not bend to the marriage!"

One of my all time favorites...Anthony Hopkins as John Quincy Adams in "Amistad"------> You could find an excerpt...you could also listen to Hopkins deliver it-->

  Billy Bob Thornton had a couple good ones as Davy Crockett in The Alamo.  The one I'm thinking of is him explaining why he won't eat potatoes going back to his days with Andy Jackson and the Creek Indians.

  If I think of any others, I'll be sure to post them.

Well I'm thinking about Tuco's speech at Blondie's bedside (courtesy of Titoli), John Wayne's monologue to the girl in the Alamo, or with Travis at the cantena, Edmond O'Brien's soliloquy in his print shop as he is drunk, or Clint's speech at the end of Outlaw Josey Wales, or William Holden's accusation of the German spy in Stalag 17

How about the Christopher Monologue in Pulp Fiction?

I think it might be vetoed due to profanity, since Beebs said Patton's speech was vetoed.

"He'd be damned if the greasy-assed slopes were gonna get their god-damn hands on his son's birth right, so he hid it. In one place he knew the gooks would never find it: his ass."

I love Christopher walken.

This is outdated, but how does it happen nobody mentioned Juan's speech about revolutions? ???
