How Green Was My Valley (1941) Poster

Morton Lowry: Mr. Jonas



  • Dai Bando : A man is never too old to learn, is it, Mr. Jonas?

    Mr. Jonas : [uncertainly]  No.

    Dai Bando : I was in school myself once, but no great one for knowledge.

    Mr. Jonas : [angrily, shaking his cane]  Look here, what do you want?

    Dai Bando : Knowledge.

    [taking Mr. Jonas' cane] 

    Dai Bando : How would you go about taking the measurement of a stick, Mr. Jonas?

    Mr. Jonas : By its' length, of course.

    Dai Bando : And how would you measure a man who would use a stick on a boy one-third his size?

    [throws Mr. Jonas' cane aside] 

    Cyfartha : Tell us!

    Dai Bando : Now, you are good in the use of a stick, but boxing is my subject... according to the rules laid down by the good Marquis of Queensbury.

    Cyfartha : [saluting]  God rest his soul!

    Dai Bando : And happy I am to pass on my knowledge to you!

    [backhands Mr. Jonas, sending him reeling]
