Sidney Blackmer Quotes:

Swazey: Why, Jack, old partner! What's happened to you?
Jack Sherman: I've been very ill.
Swazey: Gee, that's too bad. Anything we can do? Maybe when you find out what we've come for, you'll feel better. When we sold you that land, we did it in good faith. We thought there was gold and plenty on it, and then we went off to California. On our way back, we stopped to see how you were faring, and we found out what had happened. Partner, we felt bad. Didn't we?
Hull: That's right.
Swazey: Now we'll prove we're honest. We made a long trip to find you to give you back your money.
Jack Sherman: You did, did you?
Swazey: Why, I couldn't sleep again if I thought you'd lost money. All we ask is that you hand over the deed to the property, and we'll pay you what you paid us, fair and square.
Jack Sherman: That's very kind and generous of you. Now be kind enough to get out of my house! You found out my land was valuable and the railroad wanted it, and I found out what kind of men you are. Now get out!
Swazey: Now partner, we came here to make an honest business deal for that deed. But if you're going to get rough about it, we'll have to get it another way.

Roman Castevet: Rock him.
Rosemary Woodhouse: You're trying to get me to be his mother.
Roman Castevet: Aren't you his mother?
[She starts to hum a lullaby]

Mary Beekman: I knew when I met you tonight that you'd come in handy.
Kenneth Alden: Well that's very kind of you.
Mary Beekman: But I couldn't figure out how until a minute ago. I suppose you know everyone in the social register don't you?
Kenneth Alden: Well everyone worth knowing. Of course that eliminates most of them.

Sidney Blackmer Facts
His widow became entangled in a battle with Donald Trump during the 1980s. Trump wanted to sell the apartment she rented under New York City's Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption Program. Trump wanted more than the $1000 a month restriction and wanted her to sell the apartment. Eventually, in 1998, Trump was allowed to turn the apartment into condos, subject, however, to her tenancy. (Suzanne Kaaren) Mrs Blackmer did not receive any money as a result of the legal battle with Trump. Trump was enjoined from all attempts to evict her from the 100 Central Park South Apartment where she remained until her death in August of 2004. The Blackmers rented the apartment in 1948 and maintained a residence throughout their lives.

Won Broadway's 1950 Tony Award as Best Actor (Dramatic) for "Come Back, Little Sheba."
