The Competition (1980)
Lee Remick: Greta Vandemann
Greta Vandemann : [Referring to the piano] That is your first husband, that, you... you marry it the way a nun marries Jesus. You cleave to it, because it gives your life a center that no man... that very few men can possibly give you, least of all a rival for the thing your life is centered on.
Greta Vandemann : [Lighting a cigarette] Ludwig Von Beethoven taught Carl Czerny, who taught Leschetizky, who taught Schnabel, who taught Renaldi, who taught me. And now the sixth pianist in a direct line from Beethoven is standing here staring at me in her Jordan Marsh mix-and-match.
Heidi Joan Schoonover : You shouldn't smoke.
