    Comes from a fine family. So she tells me. Brother’s a priest, all that. But, you know, death, disaster, unfortunate investments. One day she’s a little princess, up on the hill. Next, she’s down there, working the bars for the best she can.
    Peter Prince, British screenwriter, and Stephen Frears. Harry (Bill Hunter)
