Wry noir humour


The Big Steal (Don Siegel, 1949)

Robert Mitchum: Can I tell you a story?

Jane Greer: As long as it isn’t too sad. See, when I hear sad stories I cry, and when I cry I can’t drive.

And you just know that they’re going to sleep together. One of the greatest moments of that era of cinema and one that I have remembered for years.
