The Silence of the Lambs (12/12) Movie CLIP – Having an Old Friend for Dinner (1991) HD


Special Agent Starling. Oh, Special Agent Mapp. – Phone call. – Oh, thank you. Excuse me, gentlemen. Starling. Hiltch, could you take our picture? Sure. Look, I just want to say congratulations. And I’m not much good at this kind of thing, so I’m gonna duck out of here. Okay, sure. Thank you, Mr. Crawford. Your father would’ve been proud today. Don’t forget your phone call. Starling. Well, Clarice… …have the lambs stop screaming? Dr. Lecter. Don’t bother with a trace. I won’t be on long enough. Where are you, Dr. Lecter? I have no plans to call on you, Clarice. The world’s more interesting with you in it. So you take care now to extend me the same courtesy. You know I can’t make that promise. I do wish we could chat longer, but… …I’m having an old friend for dinner. Bye. Dr. Lecter… Dr. Lecter. Dr. Lecter. Dr. Lecter? Oh, excuse me. I’m sorry. You have the security system all set up? Oh, thank you. I appreciate that.

  1. Quite a poetic yet unsettling way of telling Clarice that he’s not gonna kill her because he likes her too much to make her his dinner.

  2. Should've gone on until credits– the music score and him wending through the crowd makes the ending complete with macabre anticipation.

  3. This ending part…..with the surprise phone call at graduation and perfect music choice still spooks me out 28 year's later. But NEVER as GOOD as the first time around at the movie theater when I was a teenager in 1991.

  4. why are they still calling him "dr. lecter?" shouldnt Hannibal lecter should have lost his medical license by now?

  5. I FOUND IT ULTRA CREEPY AND CHILLING WHEN I READ THAT IT WAS SAID IN A LATER FILM THAT "DR. SHILTON DISAPPEARED WHILE ON HOLIDAY IN JAMAICA." ;*(

  6. LECTOR HAD TO FEEL LIKE HE HAD NOTHING TO LOSE TO STILL BE EATING PEOPLE AFTER ESCAPING PRISON!!!! A MAN OF HIS INTELLECT COULD PROBABLY STAY FREE FOREVER IF HE KEPT HIS HEAD DOWN AFTER ESCAPING PRISON, SO IT'S LIKE HE HAD NO FEAR OF ENDING UP BACK IN PRISON. OR MAYBE HE JUST COULDN'T RESIST THE URGE TO EAT PEOPLE. ;*(

  7. 0:52 I listened to that call enough times that you could've thought I was a detective on the hunt for Lector!!!!!! I find it riveting to study!!!!

  8. Notice how his index finger lingers on the phone after he hangs it up … notice also how the cord wraps around Clarice … both are very intentional, suggesting the strong connection intimacy between the two

  10. how is it that at 0:52 her expression hardly changes but you can sense her shock of hearing dr lector's voice from the phone?

  11. For whatever reason, Clarisse just hissing "Doctor Lecter" kILLS me. I will randomly say it just to make myself laugh

  12. Havin an old friend for dinner? Hmm is he EATING a friend for dinning or HAVING someone OVER for dinner HMMM cx

  13. I'm a movie director like Hannibal Lector, I tried to mixed codeine with Dr. Pepper but it taste like medicine, I'm fighting and wrestling, man the damn life of the

  14. "I'm having an old friend for dinner" means exactly what you think it means! Also, Jodi Foster is very pretty in this movie. She was around 28 when this was filmed.

  15. The only thing worse than Hopkins' painfully contrived performance is the public fascination with the serial killer as entertainment.

  16. I love this! The plexiglass and knowing that he can't hurt you, like the shield of a nightmare. How it haunts you and digs under her skin and crawls up your spine. The nightmare of the screaming lambs and how it constantly comes back and haunts her. She's scared by Doctor Lecter. The phone rings and she hears that same voice. The screaming of the lambs have come back. Also how Lecter associated himself with the lamb by constantly bringing it up. His voice is the lamb screaming. The fly on his forehead represents the demon coming back to haunt her. Then he says goodbye and leaves it unfinished. Just like the lambs, they.. never.. stopped.. screaming…

  17. Anthony Hopkins is the kind of actor who can make it so perfect, even if he was the thanos audience wouldve cheered for thanos not the ironman…………

  18. Hannibal didn't just disappear into the crowd. He was following Dr. Chilton to eventually kill and eat him.

  19. Is there another cause why Scott refuse to play in the next instalment? I mean, I don't buy that..nightmare tape reason.

  20. Hey Hannibal what's for dinner? "An old friend", damn Hannibal not old friends again, we have that every night.

  21. Oh how I detest that film. SO over rated. There were better films around then that never got half the press or the awards

  22. The ending was a nice touch since it felt like she didn't want him to go but I think he also told that it wasn't the end but only the beginning of their interactions…

  23. Seeing this I sometimes wish they used the original ending in Ted Tally’s screenplay where after Dr.Lecter hangs up the phone with Clarice, we see Hannibal go into a villa like house where he steps over a dead security guard and we see strapped to chair is Dr.Chilton and picks up a precision knife and says “Shall we begin?”. Jonathan Demme considered it an “Icky” ending for the film and against Tally’s wishes changed the ending. Some days I feel it fits perfectly and other days I wished they used the original ending.

  24. YOU DONT HAVE TO GUESS WHO THE OLD FRIEND IS, DR CHILTON AT THE PRISON, THAT TORMENTED HIM,TRACK DOWN THE PRISON DOC & YOU HAVE LECTOR.

  25. Keir : read Rebecca and pride and prejudice . You cannot pretell me to attorney Gerald Litvin. So FBI I pray you all realize that by the time I cuss woodskipper out you all are unlawful FBI .
