Gwen Verdon Quotes:

Lola: I took the zing out of the King of Siam. / I took the starch out of the sails of the Prince of Wales. / It's no great art gettin' the heart of a man on a silver platter. / A little brains, a little talent with an emphasis on the latter!

Lola: Aw Chief, that's awfully good! When they lose there'll be suicides and heart attacks and apoplexy... just like the good old days!


Mr. Applegate: You should have seen a real artist at work! You couldn't get him away from his wife, huh? Well I could!
