The Great Ziegfeld (1936)
Reginald Owen: Sampston
Sampson : This is about talent.
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : Something good and cheap no doubt?
Sampson : Exactly! It's a young girl named Brice... Fanny... Fanny Brice. She;s working in burlesque.
Gene Buck : Say, I've seen that girl, Flo!
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : Pretty?
Gene Buck : Well, yes and no. Shut your eyes and listen - yes! Open 'em and look - no, but a great performer!
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : We shall have a look at her at once - tonight!
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : [referring to Fanny Brice, after her audition performance] She's all right. She's gonna' be great.
Sampson : And I discovered her!
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : [to Sampson] That's right, Sam, and you deserve a raise.
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : [to the other men in the room] And I'd give it to him, but I'm afraid he wouldn't approve of the expense.
