Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd in The Glass Key.
Ed Beaumont: “You’re built well. Got a pretty face. Nice manners. But, I wouldn’t trust you outside of this room. You’re slumming, and I don’t go for slummers. You think you’re too good for me. Well, sister, it so happens I think I’m too good for you.”
One of the things I love most about classic films is the script writing and dialogue. So well thought out and they had to know how to be able to say suggestive or fucked up shit In A classy way that could slip by the hays code.
And this line is a prime example; fabulously written and brilliantly delivered.9 notes
