It's from 'The Exorcist'.

Father Carras is enduring a crisis of faith, and is unsure if the possession of Meagan is real - but the demon's mimicry of the old beggar, followed by mimicry of Carras's mother shows him that the demon is real - with suitably horryfying reaction from the poor priest.

I found those bits - together with Reagan scuttling downstairs in a crab arch - far more terrifying than the unconvicning head-spinning.

Classic example of horror being not just blood and gore, but our fears and secrets exposed to us.

Thanks Andy, course it is! (smacks forehead). I haven't watched the film for years as i find it so scary, so I must have forgotten that bit.
My pleasure - I feel unfeasibly delighted to not only have known the answer - but to have got to the thread first to post it!

I know at the end of the day, there are no hard or easy questions - there are ones you can answer, and ones you can't ...

oh what the hell - this WAS tough, and i cracked it!

BTW - I haven't seen it for ages either, but if memory servies, the quote is "Could you spare some change for an old alter boy Father ..."

I must be on a roll or something ....
