Tell us about your relics down below with #WhatsYourRelic and be sure to visit our Fra Angelico: Heaven on Earth exhibition!

The most iconic movie quotes of all time

With 14 Oscar nominations, the film is tied with "Titanic" for most Academy Award nominations for a single film—yet, it’s famous line, said by Margo Channing, is often misquoted. Many people have replaced the word “night” with “ride.”

    The most iconic movie quotes of all time
    Quote : "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." There was huge controversy over using the word "damn" in the now infamous line from "Gone with the Wind." Two months before the film was set to premiere, censors requested the word to be cut due to a code that "forbade profanity," among other things.
