  • After rising to fame in a series of hit Woody Allen comedies, Diane Keaton went on to enjoy a successful film career both as an actress and as a director. Born Diane Hall on January 5, 1946, in Los Angeles, she studied acting at Manhattan's Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater and in 1968 understudied in Hair. On Broadway she met actor/director Allen and appeared in his 1969 stage hit Play It Again, Sam. In 1970, Keaton made her film debut in the comedy Lovers and Other Strangers and rose to fame as the paramour of Al Pacino's Michael Corleone in the 1972 blockbuster The Godfather. That same year, she and Allen -- with whom Keaton had become romantically involved offscreen -- reprised Play It Again, Sam for the cameras, and in 1973 he directed her in Sleeper. The Godfather Part II followed, as did Allen's Love and Death. All of these films enjoyed great success, and Keaton stood on the verge of becoming a major star; however, when her next two pictures -- 1976's I Will, I Will for Now and Harry and Walter Go to New York -- both flopped, she returned to the stage to star in The Primary English Class.In 1977, Allen released his fourth film with Keaton, Annie Hall. A clearly autobiographical portrait of the couple's real-life romance, it was a landmark, bittersweet, soul-searching tale which brought a new level of sophistication to comedy in films. Not only did the film itself win an Academy Award for Best Picture, but Keaton garnered Best Actress honors. That same year, she also headlined the controversial drama Looking for Mr. Goodbar. Two more films with Allen, 1978's Bergmanesque Interiors and the 1979 masterpiece Manhattan followed; however, when the couple separated, Keaton began a romance with Warren Beatty, with whom she co-starred in the 1981 epic Reds; she earned a Best Actress nomination for her work in Beatty's film. Continuing to pursue more dramatic projects, she next co-starred in 1982's Shoot the Moon, followed by a pair of box-office disappointments, The Little Drummer Girl and Mrs. Soffel. The 1986 Crimes of the Heart was a minor success, and a year later she made her directorial debut with the documentary Heaven. Keaton's next starring role in the domestic comedy Baby Boom (1987) was a smash, and after close to a decade apart, she and Allen reunited for Radio Days, in which she briefly appeared as a singer. Upon starring in 1988's disappointing The Good Mother, she began splitting her time between acting and directing. In between appearing in films including 1990's The Godfather Part III, 1991's hit Father of the Bride, and 1992's telefilm Running Mates, she helmed music videos, afterschool specials (1990's The Girl with the Crazy Brother), and TV features (1991's Wildflower). She even directed an episode of the David Lynch cult favorite Twin Peaks. After stepping in for Mia Farrow in Allen's 1993 picture Manhattan Murder Mystery, Keaton essayed the title role in the 1994 TV biopic Amelia Earhart: the Final Flight and in 1995 made her feature-length directorial debut with the quirky drama Unstrung Heroes. After co-starring with Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn in the 1996 comedy smash The First Wives Club, she earned another Oscar nomination for her work in Marvin's Room. In 1998, Keaton starred in The Only Thrill and followed that in 1999 with The Other Sister. She subsequently stepped into another familial role in 2000's Hanging Up with Meg Ryan and Lisa Kudrow. Despite participating amongst a star-studded cast including veterans Goldie Hawn, Garry Shandling, Charlton Heston, and Warren Beatty, 2001's Town & Country was not particularly well-received among audiences or critics. In 2003, Keaton played Jack Nicholson's love interest in director Nancy Meyers's Something's Gotta Give (for which she received a Best Actress Oscar nomination) and executive produced director Gus Van Sant's avant-garde Elephant), which won Best Director and Golden Palm awards at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival.

Well, when Johnny was first starting out, he was signed to a personal services contract with this big-band leader. And as his career got better and better, he wanted to get out of it. But the band leader wouldn't let him. Now, Johnny is my father's godson. So my father went to see this bandleader and offered him $10,000 to let Johnny go, but the bandleader said no. So the next day, my father went back, only this time with Luca Brasi. Within an hour, he had a signed release for a certified check of $1000.
Kay Adams
How did he do that?
Michael Corleone
My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
Kay Adams
What was that?
Michael Corleone
Luca Brasi held a gun to his head, and my father assured him that either his brains or his signature would be on the contract....... Thats a true story.

Allan
Why not? I paid twenty dollars for it!
Annie Hall
La-dee-da, la-dee-da.
Kay Adams
Oh, Michael. Michael, you are blind. It wasn't a miscarriage. It was an abortion. An abortion, Michael. Just like our marriage is an abortion. Something that's unholy and evil. I didn't want your son, Michael! I wouldn't bring another one of you sons into this world! It was an abortion, Michael! It was a son Michael! A son! And I had it killed because this must all end! [Michael's eyes begin to bulge] I know now that it's over. I knew it then. There would be no way, Michael... no way you could ever forgive me not with this Sicilian thing that's been going on for 2,000 years. [Michael loses control. He slaps Kay across the face. She falls onto the couch]
Michael Corleone
Bitch! You won't take my children!
Kay Adams
I will.
Michael Corleone
You WON'T TAKE MY CHILDREN!
Kay Adams
They're my children too.
Michael Corleone
Kay. I never expected you.
Kay Adams
No, I know, I know. But I'm here.
Michael Corleone
I'm glad.
Kay Adams
You know? This is the first time I've seen you look so helpless.
Michael Corleone
Eh -- not so bad really. I feel, I'm getting, wiser now.
Kay Adams
Yeah?
Michael Corleone
Oh yeah.
Kay Adams
The sicker you get the wiser you get huh?
Michael Corleone
When I'm dead, I'm gonna be really smart.
Kay Adams
Tony knows that you killed Fredo. <This catches Michael off guard. He gathers himself.>
Michael Corleone
What did you come here for?
Kay Adams
I came here to protect my son. I didn’t come here to see you disguised by your church. I think that was a shameful ceremony.
Michael Corleone
I spent my life protecting my son. I spent my life protecting my FAMILY!
Kay Adams
Let’s be reasonable, Okay? That’s your big thing isn’t it Michael. Reason. Backed up by murder.
Michael Corleone
Oh, God -- You hate me, you hate me.
Kay Adams
No, I don’t hate you. I dread you.
Michael Corleone
I did what I could Kay. To protect all of you, from the horrors of this world.
Kay Adams
But you became my horror.
Kay Adams
The baby I lost...
Michael Corleone
I know what it meant... and I'm prepared to make it up to you. I will make changes; I can. (he clenches his fist tightly) I CAN change; that I have learned, that I have the strength to change... And we have another child, a boy... and you'll forget the miscarriage.
Kay Adams
It wasn't a miscarriage. And you with your cunning, couldn't you figure it out! It was an abortion; an abortion, like our marriage is an abortion, something unholy and evil. I don't want your son; I wouldn't bring another of your sons into this world. An abortion, Michael... it was a son, and I had it killed, but this must all end!
Michael Corleone
My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
Kay Adams
What was that?
Michael Corleone
Luca Brasi held a gun to his head, and my father assured him that either his brains -- or his signature -- would be on the contract. That's a true story. That's my family, Kay. It's not me.
Annie Hall
It's so clean out here.
Alvy Singer
In Beverly Hills, they don't throw their garbage away -- they turn it into television shows.
Sonia
To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down.
Beth
Freeway!
Beth
Love is love, it doesn't matter if it's a dog.

[annoyed] Constantly. I'd say three times a week.

Hey, Your heart attack could be the best thing that ever happened to me.

Erica Barry

Erica Barry
[leaves room] 'You are... You are a woman to love.' What the hell does that mean?
Isaac Davis
Well, a satirical piece in the Times is one thing, but bricks get right to the point.
Mary Wilke
But biting satire is better that physical force.
Isaac Davis
No, physical force is better with Nazis. It's hard to satirise a guy with shiny boots.
Isaac Davis
No, physical force is better with Nazis. It's hard to satirise a guy with shiny boots.

Can you believe this guy in Indiana? Killed twelve victims, dismembered them and ate them.
