Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???
“I put a curse on that plane.”
“I don’t believe in curses.”
In this scene, widowed Italian-American bookkeeper Loretta Castorini (Cher) is at the airport to say goodbye to her fiancé Johnny Cammareri (Danny Aiello), who is going to Palermo, Sicily to see his dying mother. While watching his plane taxi to takeoff, she starts talking to an old woman who is also watching the plane. The old woman is bitter at her sister, who is on the plane, for stealing a boyfriend from her fifty years earlier (“Today she told me that she didn’t even love him. She took him to be strong on me.”) She has cursed the plane so “that the green Atlantic water should swallow her up!” The old woman says line one and Loretta replies with line two. This movie tells the wonderfully human story of Loretta, who is torn between her fiancé and his brother.
