After getting his start as a child star in several movies for Walt Disney Studios, actor Kurt Russell managed to shed his wholesome image to play some of cinema's most notorious and hard-edged tough guys. Russell first broke the Disney mold with an acclaimed portrayal of the King in the made-for-television biopic, "Elvis" (ABC, 1979), which many hailed as one of the finest performances of his career. Having partnered with director John Carpenter, he next essayed one of his most enduring characters, Snake Plissken, the antihero of Carpenter's cult classic "Escape from New York" (1981). Russell delivered another solid performance as memorable hard-case R.J. MacReady in Carpenter's gory remake of "The Thing" (1982). While making the troubled romantic comedy "Swing Shift" (1984), Russell became romantically involved with co-star Goldie Hawn, with whom he forged a lasting partnership that resembled a marriage, but without the actual legal certificate. He was even considered by Hawn's two children from a previous marriage, actors Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson, to be - at least in spirit - their father. Meanwhile, Russell thrived throughout the 1980s with "Big Trouble in Little China" (1986) and "Tequila Sunrise" (1988), which carried over into the next decade with "Backdraft" (1991), "Captain Ron" (1992) and a dead-on portrayal of Wyatt Earp in "Tombstone" (1993). Following box office success with "Stargate" (1994) and "Executive Decision" (1996), Russell offered up varied performances in films like the tense thriller "Breakdown" (1997), Cameron Crowe's "Vanilla Sky" (2001), hockey drama "Miracle" (2004), and Quentin Tarantino's "Grindhouse" (2007) and "The Hateful Eight" (2015). Whether playing the hero or the heel, Russell remained one of the most engaging actors in Hollywood.

John "The Hangman" Ruth says: Keeping you at a disadvantage is an advantage I intend to keep.

John "The Hangman" Ruth says: Yeah, Warren, that's the problem with old men. You can kick 'em down the stairs, and say it's an accident, but you can't just shoot 'em.

Daisy Domergue says: John Ruth!

John "The Hangman" Ruth says: Yeah?

Daisy Domergue says: Can I play that guitar over there ?

Daisy Domergue says: Yeah-yeah-yeah. I got it.

John "The Hangman" Ruth says: That's the trouble with old people. You can push them down the stairs and pretend it's an accident, but you just can't shoot 'em.

You don't have a single thing to do on this earth except for your hair! The closet was fine, you just needed something to fill up your useless, nail-polishing, toe-polishing, rich bitch, sun-tanning days!

Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt" says: Well, the entire civilized world knows that ALL closets are made of CEDAR.

Dean Proffitt Carpenter says: [in a backwoods accent] Well up here in Elk Snout ma'am see we don't know 'bout them closets, nor bathrooms neither. Shit woman, you're lucky I am house broke.

Dean Proffitt Carpenter says: Yeah, well... that's 'cause we used to do it in the closet.

MacReady says: talking into his tape recorder) - I'm going to hide this tape when I'm finished. If none of us make it, at least there will be some kind of record. The storm's been hitting us hard now for 48 hours. We still have nothing to go on. One other thing: I think it rips through your clothes when it takes you over. Windows found some shredded and bloody long-johns in the trash but the name tag was missing. They could be anybody's. Nobody,nobody trusts anybody now, and we're all very tired. There's nothing more I can do, just wait. This is R.J. MacReady, helicopter pilot, US outpost #31.

MacReady says: anybody touches me and we go

MacReady says: Anybody touches me, and we go.

MacReady says: We're gonna draw a little bit of everyone's blood, 'cause we're gonna find out who's the Thing. Watching Norris in there gave me the idea that every little part of him was a whole. Every little piece was an individual animal with a built-in desire to protect its own life. You see, when a man bleeds, it's just tissue. But blood from one of you Things won't obey when it's attacked. It'll try and survive. Crawl away from a hot needle, say.

MacReady says: (macready throws dynamite at the thing) yeah fuck you too

MacReady says: [MacReady throws dynamite at the thing] Yeah fuck you too.

MacReady says: [MacReady pours his drink into the computer tower, frying it] Cheating bitch!

Jack Burton says: When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, looks you crooked in the eye, and asks you if you paid your dues; you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have you paid your dues, Jack? Yes sir, the check is in the mail."

Wyatt Earp says: NOOOOOO!!!!

Wyatt Earp says: NO!

Jack Burton says: You just listen to the old Pork Chop Express here now and take his advice on a dark and stormy night when the lightning's crashin' and the thunder's rollin' and the rain's coming down in sheets thick as lead. Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

Nauls says: Where we going?

MacReady says: Up to my shack.

Nauls says: What the hell for?

MacReady says: 'Cuz when I left yesterday I turned the lights off.

MacReady says: There's a storm hitting us in six hours, and we're gonna find out who's who.

Jack Burton says: It's all in the reflexes.

Stuntman Mike says: ladies!!! now that was fun, well see ya!

Stuntman Mike says: [catches his breath] Ohhh, ladies that was fun!

MacReady says: Cheatin' bitch.

MacReady says: Poor baby, your startin' to lose it, aren't yah?

Stuntman Mike says: Well damn if you ain't so sweet you make salt taste just like sugar.

Stuntman Mike says: Well damn if you ain't so sweet you make sugar taste just like salt.

Bob Hauk says: There was an accident. About an hour ago, a small jet went down inside New York City. The President was on board.

Snake Plissken says: The president of what?

Snake Plissken says: [Snake finds a dead thug wearing his stolen jacket] I'll take my coat back now, asshole.

Snake Plissken says: Fuck you, I'm going to Hollywood...

Malloy says: [after the President orders Snake executed] On my command... FIRE! [the soldiers open fire, without effect. Malloy grabs a rifle, walks up to Snake, and swings the butt through his body]

Snake Plissken says: The name's Plissken.

Johnny Tyler says: You run your mouth awful reckless for a man that don't go heeled.

Wyatt Earp says: No need to go heeled to get the bulge on a tub like you.

Michael Carr says: What's it going to take to convince you? Me in a body bag?!

Sandra says: Sgt. Todd... what's it like? What's it like being a soldier? What do you think about? [silence] You must think about something? [silence] What about feelings then? [silence] You must *feel* something? [pause]

Todd says: Fear.

Sandra says: Fear?

Todd says: Fear and discipline.

Sandra says: Now?

Todd says: Always.

Jack Burton says: I'm a reasonable guy. But, I've just experienced some very unreasonable things.

Tod says: Copper, you're my very best friend.

Copper says: And you're mine too, Tod.

MacReady says: Someone in this camp ain't who what he appears to be.

MacReady says: Someone in this camp ain't what he appears to be.

Wyatt Earp says: You tell him I'm comin'....and Hell's comin' with me!

MacReady says: I think that we should heat things up a little.

Wang Chi says: Ready Jack?

Jack Burton says: I was born ready!

Reno Hightower says: Half these people came here tonight, Jack, to watch you catch ball. The other half came to see you drop it. You drop that damn thing again, Jack, your life is over.

MacReady says: We're gonna draw a little bit of everyone's blood, 'cause we're gonna find out who's the Thing. Watching Norris in there gave me the idea that every little part of him was a whole. Every little piece was an individual animal with a built-in desire to protect its own life. You see, when a man bleeds, it's just tissue. But blood from one of you Things won't obey when it's attacked. It'll try and survive. Crawl away from a hot needle, say.

Malcolm Anderson says: [pauses]...Why?

Brian McCaffrey says: But you did it man. You did it all the way. You were really a hero.

Stephen McCaffrey says: Brian... its not about being a hero. I went in because there was a kid up there. I do what I do because that's my way. And it was Dad's way. Maybe it's not everybody's way.
