Quotes from

Brock Benedict: Come with me, Mason, and forget about your boat.
Gregory Mason: Forget about my boat? Just as simple as that? It was a stinkin' little boat, but it fed me pork and beans today but, who knows, maybe tomorrow steak and cake.


Gregory Mason: [Taken aback by Rair's prissy appearance] So you were andy's bodyguard? Eh, come again?
Steven Ranier: Don't be misled, Mr. mason. I keep my trousers pressed, my nails polished, but I also keep my biceps in trim.
[He takes out a luger]
Steven Ranier: Especially this one.
[He smiles]
Steven Ranier: [Dryly] Quite a muscle.
Steven Ranier: I like it.


Gregory Mason: [Surprised to see Sheila in Benedict's living room] Hello. Are you the hostess here?
Stella Callahan: If I were, you wouldn't be a guest.

Facts about

Every day during filming Errol Flynn would drive on the Warner Bros. lot wearing a windbreaker with no shirt, slacks with no underwear and shoes with no socks. The wardrobe people would provide him with a shirt, underwear and socks, and at the end of the day's filming he would wear them home. The next day he would arrive on the lot, again with no shirt, underwear or socks, and again he would be supplied those items by wardrobe. Co-star 'Paul Picerni (I)' noticed it after several days, and asked Flynn what he did with all the shirts, socks and underwear he'd accumulated after several weeks of filming. Flynn replied that he threw them in a closet when he got home. Picerni asked, "But what do you do with them?" Flynn replied, "Nothing. It just gives me pleasure to steal from Jack Warner."
