The Great Ziegfeld (1936) Poster

Fanny Brice: Fannie Brice



  • Fanny Brice : Tell Mr Ziegfeld, I'm not in and if I was in, I wouldn't see him and if I did see him, tell him, I wouldn't buy a thing.

  • Fanny Brice : If I can give Belasco four dollars for silk stockings made of cotton, I can give Ziegfeld a little more for a mink coat made of skunk.

  • Fanny Brice : Get me some viskey!

  • Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : [Scolding the wardrobe man for having dressed Miss Brice in an inappropriately showy costume]  How do you expect Miss Brice to sing a sad song about her man, dressed up like a nightingale? I find personalities, and you try to destroy them. I didn't engage Miss Brice as a showgirl.

    Clarence : [after having altered Miss Brice's costume to the bare minimum]  Is that all right, Mr. Ziegfeld?

    Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : Well, it's all right for now. Tomorrow, get her another outfit. And don't make it, buy it. Go to a second-hand store and get her an old dress. She's supposed to be a, an apache, a poor French girl, an urchin!

    Clarence : [meekly]  Yes, sir.

    Fanny Brice : [looking disappointed]  So, to work for Mr. Ziegfeld, I gotta' be an urchin. Even in burlesque I was middle class.

  • Burlesque Prima Donna : Once in burlesque, always in burlesque, unless you got looks, or a voice, or something.

    Fanny Brice : Well, that's what I got, kid.

    Burlesque Prima Donna : What?

    Fanny Brice : Something.

  • Fanny Brice : [Admiring herself, and her showy costume, in the mirror]  Look at ya'. You're workin' for Mr. Ziegfeld now, and ya' look like a million dollars. For the first time in your life, you're class, ya' mug.
