The Great Ziegfeld (1936) Poster

Ernest Cossart: Sidney


  • Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : Oh, Sidney, I'm so terribly broke.

    Sidney : But sir, isn't Mr. Billings going to help you?

    Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : Sidney, he hasn't a nickel. He was lying to me just to make me feel better. We're both broke.

    Sidney : I wouldn't worry about that, sir. You've been broke before, sir.

    Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : Yes, I know. I've always laughed about it. But I can't laugh anymore, Sidney, because I've been wrong. I've got nothing. Nothing to leave anyone.

    Sidney : Nothing, sir? You leave them the memories of the finest things ever done on the stage, sir. You'll leave them a name that they can be proud of all their lives. You'll soon feel better, and then you can do more beautiful things than ever before, sir.
