GREAT LINES FROM THE MOVIES

After hearing a letter read by Davy Crockett (as played by John Wayne) from the Mexican General Santa Ana in which the General promises to "chastise the Texans even unto death" a Tennessean volunteer called 'the Beekeeper"(played by the great Chill Wills) says:
"Chastise? Davy, do "chastise" mean what I think it do?"
"It do" replies Davy.
"Chastise! "Chas-TISE" the man said!"
The Battle of the Alamo was thus begun.
