    Martin Berkeley, and Jack Arnold. Prof. Clete Ferguson (John Agar)

    To look at the cross-section of any plan of a big city is to look at something like the section of a fibrous tumor.
    Frank Lloyd Wright (1869–1959)

    Every man has been brought up with the idea that decent women don’t pop in and out of bed; he has always been told by his mother that “nice girls don’t.” He finds, of course, when he gets older that this may be untrue—but only in a certain section of society.
    Barbara Cartland (b. 1901)
