Movie Quote Quiz

Eva Perón: Sometimes it's very difficult to keep momentum when it's you that you are following.

Ché: Now Eva Perón had every disadvantage you need if you're going to succeed. No money, no cash, no father, no bright lights. There was nowhere she'd been at the age of fifteen, as this tango singer found out. Agustin Magaldi - who has the distinction of being the first man to be of use to Eva Duarte.

Eva Perón: Did you hear that? They called me a whore! They actually called me a whore.
Prince Fuspoli: But, Signora Perón, it's an easy mistake. I'm still called an admiral, though I gave up the sea long ago.

Eva Perón: What is the good of the strongest heart in a body that's falling apart? A serious flaw.

Eva Perón: Don't cry for me, Argentina.

Eva Perón: What's new, Buenos Aires? I'm new! I wanna say I'm just a little stuck on you - you'll be on me too! I get out here Buenos Aires! Stand back - you ought to know what you're gonna get in me: Just a little touch of star quality.

Eva Perón: So what happens now?
Ché: Another suitcase in another hall.
Eva Perón: So what happens now?
Ché: Take your picture off another wall.
Eva Perón: Where am I going to?
Ché: You'll get by, you always have before.
Eva Perón: Where am I going to?

Army: Perón is a fool breaking every taboo, installing the girl in the army HQ. And she's an actress! The last straw. Her only good parts are between her thighs. She should stare at the ceiling, not reach for the skies, or she could be his last whore. The evidence suggests... she has other interests. If it's her whose using him... he's exceptionally dim. Bitch.

Ché: One always picks the easy fight. One praises fools, one smothers light. One shifts from left to right. Politics - the art of the possible.

Ché: Oh, what a circus, oh, what a show! Argentina has gone to town over the death of an actress called Eva Peron. We've all gone crazy, mourning all day and mourning all night, falling over ourselves to get all of the misery right. Oh, what an exit! That's how to go. When they're ringing your curtain down, demand to be buried like Eva Peron. It's quite a sunset, and good for the country in a roundabout way. We've made the front page of all the world's papers today.

Continuity mistake: Parts of the movie were filmed in Budapest/Hungary, and in the funeral scene Hungarian shopnames are to see behind the big pictures of Evita on the housewalls.

Question: In a few things I've read, Antonio Bandaras is credited as playing Che Guevara but in the credits of the film he's listed as only 'Che'. Is the character actually meant to be Guevara?

Kara

Chosen answer: Though (very) loosely based on Che Guevara, the character of Che is NOT supposed to be him, as was stated by both Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
