Trivia Quiz for Beginners

Recommended Posts

OK, I've done a bit of hunting and come up with this little nugget of dialogue:

 

"Ace, do you think she's really a top government secretary?"

"Yeah, I'll bet she holds the world's horizontal short-hand record."

 

[it's not a classic exchange, but I thought it quite amusing...]

Sounds very much like William Powell in The Thin Man.

OK, a fairly easy one, but keeping in mind the title of this thread.

 

 

"I don't mind if you don't like my manners. I don't like 'em myself. They're pretty bad. I grieve over them long winter evenings."

 

 

Who said it to whom, and in what movie?

I'm not, believe me.

 

Actually, I entered the thread by accident and answered before I realized where I was. Hopefully, my question will be as easy for beginners as the one I answered.

 

Mea culpa.

Thanks, Fred. I went out of my way to think of a fairly easy question, knowing full well that many of the usual posters on these threads would recognize that classic dialogue from The Big Sleep, but many novices might not. Anyway, let's take Mr. Write's word for it that he inadverently wandered onto this thread and supplied the answer. As for me, I think I'll stick to some of the harder Trivia threads, although the posters over there are really good, and I may be out of my league. (Especially the Hitchcock fans!)
