Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Johnny Mercer's "How Little We Know" sung by Lauren Bacall:


I could swear that it's Andy Williams voice I hear.

The other great quote from that movie, by Walter Brennan's character, is "Did you ever step on a dead bee?"

I love watching this movie, because B & B's chemistry is so sizzlingly real. You can tell all they wanted was for Hawks to yell "That's a wrap" so they could go jump into bed as fast as possible.

One other thing - the famous Bacall look, head tilted, peeking out from under her bangs, came about because she was so nervous on her first day of filming, it was the only way she could keep her head from shaking.

It's hard to believe she was only 19 in this movie.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
