In Hollywood


Nellie Moore (Patsy Kelly): Oh and by the way, where are all these movie stars like Garbo and Gable that you were going to show us?
Rinaldo Lopez (Mischa Auer): Did you want to see stars?
Nellie Moore (Patsy Kelly): Well, certainly. You didn’t think we wanted to look at you all night, did you? At least show us Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck or somethin’.


Rinaldo Lopez (Mischa Auer): My dear, I can’t even allow myself to think of marriage.
