  2. I hope that all here are well and happy and content with the fact that things could be worse and that there is hope for a much brighter New Year.
  3. Her exit shows how fall she has fallen. His exit is perfect. He is demonstrating his complete dominance by quietly sipping a drink in a luxury setting.

  9. I thank you for reviewing this. It came up in the Amazon Prime Video "viewers also watched" section after I had watched one movie. I very much like Bob Cummings and his gentle good nature. I endured up to the point where police visit him at the hotel and the girls he was chatting up scattered when they heard the title phrase. I had been feeling a little guilty about giving up on it but you make it plain that it does not get better.
