They Died with Their Boots On Quotes

Errol Flynn as George Armstrong Custer

  • (Errol Flynn) "Walking through life with you, ma'am, has been a very gracious thing."
  • (Errol Flynn) "You may be right about money, Sharp; quite right. But there's one thing to be said for glory."
  • (Arthur Kennedy) "Yeah? What's that?"

  • (Errol Flynn) "We're responsible for the protection of 100,000 square miles of territory. And against us are ranged thousands of the finest light cavalry on earth. I found that out this morning. It's a big job, gentlemen -- and it's gonna need a fine regiment. Our job is to make this the finest regiment that the United States ever saw. I needn't tell most of you that a regiment is something more than just six hundred disciplined fighting men. Men die. But a regiment lives on; because a regiment has an immortal soul of its own. Well, the way to begin is to find it. To find something that belongs to us alone. Something to give us that pride in ourselves that'll make men endure; and, if necessary, die -- with their boots on. As for the rest it's easy: since it's no more than hard work, hard riding and hard fighting. Thank you, gentlemen, I know I can count on you."

  • (Unnamed) "Sporty of you to think of it that way. But I'll remind you, sir, I'm a member of the mess of the Seventh U.S. Cavalry. Fancy walking into the Service Club in Picadilly if the regiment -- Get somebody else to post your blinking letter."
