Jeff Warren: I didn’t do it.
Vicki Buckley: Why not?
Jeff Warren: Maybe because he was drunk, because he fell. I picked him up and took him over to the dispatcher’s office. They’re trying to sober him up with coffee now. He even thought I was trying to help him.
Vicki Buckley: You couldn’t kill him. You tried and you couldn’t.
Jeff Warren: It’s all wrong Vicky. The whole thing’s been wrong from the beginning and I feel dirty.
Eddie: I think she looks swell. It couldn’t be her eyes.
Tom: Her eyes?
Eddie: They’re not all skinny. You know, like those ladies in the comic books who are no good. They always got skinny eyes.
Tom: Skinny eyes. Anything else?
Eddie: Well, there’s one other thing, but. . .it’s about sex.
Tom: Go ahead. I can stand it.
Eddie: Well, the bad ladies, they always got big busts. Now, don’t get mad, Dad, but it’s true. Very big. Skinny eyes, and big busts is how you tell a bad lady from a good one.
Tom: Aren’t there any good ladies in all that stuff you read?
Eddie: Oh sure. . .but they always got medium-size busts. . .and round eyes, of course.
Tom: I’ll keep that in mind.
As many of you know, I really love Glenn Ford. Like, really love. I am so excited about all the Glenn Ford media hitting the home video market in the last few months. Enter The Courtship of Eddie’s Father from the Warner Archive Collection. This was such a great film; I can’t believe I had never seen it before.
If you follow me on Tumblr, then you know that I really love Glenn Ford (man’s man). It seems like the gods of DVD and Blu-ray also love Glenn Ford. TCM just announced a new set of Glenn Ford crime films to be released in March.
I have actually only seen one of these films, so I am SO EXCITED for this set.
Tom Reese: And all that hogwash about horses! The loyalty of the horse! The intelligence of the horse! The intelligence? You know a horse has a brain just about the size of a walnut. They’re mean, they’re treacherous and they’re stupid. There isn’t a horse born that had enough sense to move away from a hot fire. No sensible man loves a horse. He tolerates the filthy animal only because riding is better than walking.
