Roscoe Lee Browne Quote of the Month: August 2009

In honor of our newborn, the next two movies in our "Quote of the Month" series are from a movie and it's sequel that are wonderful films for children. Babe is an enchanting film about an orphan pig who tries to fit in and please his new master. The film has a gentle pace (a rarity in kids films these days) and is structured like a fairytale. Our narrator for this fairytale is, of course, Roscoe. The result is one of his more memorable roles. Here is his introduction to the story:

Narrator: "This is a tale about an unprejudiced heart, and how it changed our valley forever. There was a time not so long ago when pigs were afforded no respect, except by other pigs; they lived their whole lives in a cruel and sunless world. In those days pigs believed that the sooner they grew large and fat, the sooner they'd be taken into Pig Paradise, a place so wonderful that no pig had ever thought to come back."
