Before I Hang (1940)
Dr. John Garth: Someday, somehow, medical science will find a way to end the needless, ghastly suffering caused by the ravages of age!

Dr. John Garth: ...and you must forget that we've worked together, that we are friends. You must go on! Learn what you can from the study of my heart, my brain, and my blood!
Dr. John Garth: Well, you want to go on living, don't you?

Victor Sondini: You know, it's not so easy to say the end is coming - the fire is burned out!
