Mr. Sardonicus (1961)
Krull: When my master says, "Krull, do this thing," I do the thing, whatever it may be.
Baron Sardonicus: My name was not always Sardonicus, and I did not always wear a mask.
Baron Sardonicus: A ghoul, as I'm sure you know, is a disgusting creature who opens graves and feeds on corpses.
Baron Sardonicus: Good morning, Madam.
Maude Sardonicus: Good morning.
Baron Sardonicus: May I come in?
Maude Sardonicus: Well, I...
Baron Sardonicus: Do not worry. I'm not a man who's affectionate in the morning hours.
Baron Sardonicus: What I had not forseen was that the face of my father, the muscles stretched by a terrible death recoil, would look directly and hideously upon me, the dead lips drawn back in a constant and soul-shattering smile.
Baron Sardonicus: You must know first of all that I am the victim of a little domestic tragedy. My wife does not love me. She has always been a wife in name only. She is revolted, you see. Revolted by my face.
Maude Sardonicus: It's not only that.
Baron Sardonicus: Oh come, Madam! My crudeness? My cruelty? My arrogance? This is what you tell yourself in your womanish passion, is it not? But it is my face you bar your door against, not my character flaws.
Krull: [noticing Sir Robert's disquiet at seeing a collection of empty picture frames] Perhaps you are puzzled by the empty frames, sir?
Sir Robert Cargrave: Yes, they do seem rather strange.
Krull: The baron is an unusual man, of unusual convictions. In such frames, ordinary men would honor the portraits of their forefathers. But the baron has disowned his forefathers in one magnificent gesture.
Baron Sardonicus: [leading Sir Robert to the torture chamber] This castle is very old, Sir Robert. It was built in a dim age of fearful barbarity.
Krull: Master, I'm very sorry, but I missed him. The train had already left.
