Blessed with a hauntingly clear tenor, Art Garfunkel teamed up with Paul Simon to give voice to an entire generation as part of the folk superduo Simon & Garfunkel. Although Simon was the creative force and songwriting genius behind their classic songs, including "Homeward Bound," "I Am a Rock," "Kathy's Song," "Scarborough Fair/Canticle," "The Boxer," "Cecilia," "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and the unforgettable "Mrs. Robinson" from "The Graduate" (1967), Garfunkel's voice marked their distinctive sound. Although a long-simmering feud helped kill their working relationship as well as real-life, life-long friendship, they won five Grammys, earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as well as pop culture immortality. Their 1981 reunion concert in New York's Central Park set all kinds of records and brought about their definitive live album. Garfunkel also earned a Golden Globe nomination for his role opposite Jack Nicholson in Mike Nichols's "Carnal Knowledge" (1971), as he became increasingly interested in segueing into acting. Eventually moving beyond much of their animosity, Simon & Garfunkel reunited several times to great acclaim and enormous profit, and Garfunkel's voice and artistic efforts continued to resonate with multiple generations. Although he left his greatest musical legacy as an interpreter of songs written by Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel helped provide the soundtrack to an era as well as creating his own underrated body of work as a solo artist.

QUOTES FROM Art Garfunkel CHARACTERS

Nately says: You talk like a madman.

Old Man says: But I live like a sane one. I was a Fascist when Mussolini was on top. Now that he has been deposed, I am anti-Fascist. When the Germans were here, I was fanatically pro-German. Now I'm fanatically pro-America! You'll find no more loyal partisan in all of Italy than myself.

Nately's Girl says: When we go to America, Nately?

Old Man says: You will take her to America? Away from a healthy, active life? Away from good business opportunities? Away from her friends?

Nately says: Don't you have any principles?

Old Man says: Of course not.

Nately says: No morality?

Old Man says: I'm a very moral man. And Italy is a very moral country. That's why we will certainly come out on top again if we succeed in being defeated.

Nately says: What are you talking about? America's not going to be destroyed.

Old Man says: Never?

Nately says: Well...

Old Man says: Rome was destroyed. Greece was destroyed. Persia was destroyed. Spain was destroyed. All great countries are destroyed. Why not yours?How much longer do you think your country will last? Forever?

Nately says: Forever is a long time, I guess.

Old Man says: Very long.

Old Man says: You all crazy!

Nately says: Why are we crazy?

Old Man says: Because you don't know how to stay alive, and that's the secret of life.

Nately says: "You're a shameful opportunist! What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees."

Nately says: You're a shameful opportunist! What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

Maj. Major says: You're a shameful opportunist! What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

Old Man says: "You have it backwards! It is better to live on your feet than to die on your knees. I know."

Old Man says: You have it backwards! It is better to live on your feet than to die on your knees. I know.

Nately says: How do you know?

Maj. Major says: How do you know?

Old Man says: Because I am 107 years old. How old are you?

Nately says: I'll be 23 in January.

Maj. Major says: I'll be 20 in January.

Old Man says: If you live.

Jonathan says: Is this an ultimatum? Answer me, you ball-busting, castrating, son of a cunt bitch! Is this an ultimatum or not?

Jonathan says: Is this an ultimatum? Answer me, you ball-busting, castrating, son of a cunt bitch! Is this an ultimatum or not?

Sandy says: : Looks aren't everything, you know.

Sandy says: Looks aren't everything, you know.

Jonathan says: answers: Believe me, looks are everything.

Jonathan says: Believe me, looks are everything.

Jonathan says: You want a job? I got a job for you. Fix up this pigsty! You get a pretty Goddammed good salary for testing out this bed all day! You want an extra fifty dollars a week, try vacuuming! You want an extra hundred, make this Goddammed bed! Try opening some Goddammed windows! That's why you can't stand up in here, the Goddammed place smells like a coffin!

Jonathan says: Why don't you leave me?... For God's sake, I'd almost marry you if you'd leave me.

Jonathan says: What are you crying for? It wasn't a Lassie story.

Jonathan says: Sandy, do you wanna get laid?

Sandy says: answers: please.

Sandy says: Please.
