The Third Man
One of the most well known monologues in a film appears in The Third Man. Surprisingly, the entire monologue delivered by Orson Welles was completely unplanned. The speech in question was: “In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed. They produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, five hundred years of democracy and peace. And what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.”
This Is Spinal Tap
They say life imitates art, and such is the case with the fictional band Spinal Tap from the film This Is Spinal Tap, which produced real music you can still listen to today. The mockumentary meant to satirize 80s hair bands of the time and poked fun at their rock n’ roll lifestyles. Due to its comedic nature, many of the lines of the film were completely ad libbed by Michael McKean, Harry SHearer, and Christopher Guest.
