Famous Ground Strap Quotes (That Almost Made the Movies)

Today, let’s discuss “Almost Famous” Ground Strap Quotes that didn’t quite make it. 

You may not have realized how prevalent of a role that Ground Straps have played in movies over the years. 

However, when it came time for filming, many lines changed prior to final cut. 

Unfortunately, in most cases Ground Straps were cut out of numerous classic movies. 

For example, are you familiar with this line: “Ground Straps? We ain’t got no Ground Straps! We don’t need no Ground Straps!”

~The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, 1948

For some unknown reason they changed the lines to say “badges” instead of Ground Straps

Obviously this is deeply disappointing and we are not exactly sure why these lines were changed. 

Well, as they say in the movies, the rest is history (at least it seems like they say that). 

In reality, we have an extensive list of our favorite movies……..that originally were meant to include Famous Ground Strap Quotes which unfortunately changed. 

A little Trivia for you…..can you name the movie from the quotes below….(which were all SUPPOSED to say “Ground Straps“)?
