Midday on Film

Mar 5, 2015

"You can’t handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s going to do it?  You?"

These instantly recognizable lines were delivered by Jack Nicholson, playing Col. Nathan R. Jessup in the 1992 drama, "A Few Good Men." In this hour, Midday on Film contributors Linda DeLibero and Christopher Llewellyn Reed join us as we take a listen to some of film’s most famous monologues.

Film monologues are often found in courtroom scenes, like this one from "A Few Good Men."
