Does anyone know what movie this Eleanor Roosevelt quote was from?

"Only you have the power to make you feel inferior."
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Unless some movie paraphrased her as you've cited above, the actual quote was "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent," and it came from her autobiography This is My Story, published in 1937 (early in her husband's second term).

Actually, we figured it out right after I wrote the original post. It was used in the movie "The Princess Diaries"
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Saw this film when it was new, around 1972-1973: Older, experienced cop is on a case, talking with a prostitute he's obviously known for years, perhaps trying to get information out of her.  At one point she says, disgustedly, "I need you like I need another fuck." This one may or may not be from the same film:  One experienced cop to another, at a crime scene:  "Nothing like a body first thing in the morning to get me hungry for a good breakfast."  I'm probably paraphrasing badly, but any ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks, but the film I'm looking for is from 1972 or thereabouts.

Hmm, odd because this quote is also listed for True Confessions:


"Nothing like a stiff to make me crave Chinese food!" which pretty much fits the other quote you paraphrased.

Whoa, that is amazing.  Have to think about this.  And maybe watch True Confessions!

Okay, I've read the synopsis and I figured out what's wrong. Me.  That's what.  Me and my cocksure but faulty memory as to when and where I saw this.  Because that's the movie, no question about it. I'm glad I asked here.  Thank you both!!
