Churchill had a lot of wonderful quotes.

Churchill’s affinity for drinking dated back to when he was a 25-year-old correspondent covering the Boer War for the Morning Postin 1899. When he was sent out to the front line, he took 36 bottles of wine, 18 bottles of aged scotch, and six bottles of vintage brandy with him.

He was once quoted as saying, “When I was younger I made it a rule never to take strong drink before lunch. It is now my rule never to do so before breakfast.”

Here's the funny thing about that quote. The film must have been actually filmed in 1964 and released towards the end of the year because The Beatles had no hits in 1963 but had 8 top 100 hits in 1964.  The number 1 hit was the totally insipid "I want to Hold Your Hand".  The following year The Beatles had 3 top 100 hits all ahead of Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger".

 

Quotable quote from the same movie:

 

***** Galore: “My name is ***** Galore.”

Bond: “I must be dreaming.”

As the story goes, she made the remark, “You, Mr Churchill, are drunk.”

Churchill’s alleged response?

“My dear, you are ugly, and what’s more, you are disgustingly ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be disgustingly ugly.”

 

Hahahha
