The Cat And The Canary (1978) When an elderly man dies, some of his relatives gather to hear the reading of the will. When it is read by his attorney, the old man lets it be known how much he despised and loathed his worthless kin.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Cyrus West: Good evening, leeches. Take your places. As you know, I am Cyrus West. Now first of all, let me tell you, you're all a bunch of bastards. I know, I know the people you came from. They're all a bunch of bastards. Yes, your fathers, your mothers, your uncles, your aunts, your nephews, your nieces, your sons, your daughters, not to mention a cartload of cousins. All a bunch of bastards except, of course, Mew Mew, and perhaps one or two others.
  • Paul Jones: Wanna hear my new song? I wrote it while I was unconscious. It's called 'Kiss My Heiress'.
  • Annabelle West: Paul, you're hurt! Paul Jones: No, no, I'm all right. I think the left side of my head's missing.
  • Paul Jones: No one is more sincere than a greedy cousin. That's Paul Jones' theory of relativity.
  • Hendricks: But, eh, wasn't it Bertrand Russell who asked 'What is a killer but a hero out of uniform'?
