Famous quotes containing the word roberts:

    Man, she looked as though she’d been thrown off the crummiest freight train in the world. Yet, in spite of this, I got the impression of beauty. Not the beauty of a movie actress, mind you, or the beauty you dream about when you’re with your wife. But a natural beauty. A beauty that’s almost homely because it’s so real.
    Martin Goldsmith, and Edgar G. Ulmer. Al Roberts (Tom Neal)
