In anticipation for my trip to New York City I will be counting down with some of my NYC movies (and even some that I don't like just for a change of pace). Hope you all enjoy.
My affection for this 1953 comedy starring Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall and Betty Grable can be boiled down to these one-liners (and many others just like it:
Schatze Page: I was nuts about him. Know what he did to me. First he gave me a phony name. Second, he was already married. Third, the minute the prayer said amen, he never did any work. Then he stole my TV set. I asked him about it and he hit me with a chicken.
Pola Debevoise: A live chicken?
Schatze Page: No, baked and stuffed.
Loco Dempsey: I wouldn't mind marrying a Vanderbilt?
Pola Debevoise: Or Mr. Cadillac.
Schatze Page: No such person. I checked.
Loco Dempsey: Is there a Mr. Texaco?
Schatze Page: Look at Roosevelt, look at Churchill, look at old fella what's his name in The African Queen.
