At Long Last Love

Synopsis: This film was Peter Bogdanovich's homage to musical comedies of the 1930s. A millionaire named Michael Oliver Pritchard III and a singer named Kitty O'Kelly meet and fall in love. Meanwhile, an indigent woman named Brooke Carter and an Italian gambler named Johnny Spanish meet and fall in love. All four people meet each other and become friends (actually, Kitty and Brooke had been friends since high-school), and soon, Brooke's crude, fun-loving maid Elizabeth falls in love with Michael's valet Rodney James. Later on, Michael and Brooke fall in love, and Kitty and Johnny decide to follow them around. In order to make Brooke and Michael jealous, they try to look like they are falling in love as well. Eventually, Michael and Johnny get into a fight but then immediately make up. Soon, Brooke and Kitty make up. The two couples pair off successfully and they live happily ever after.

God forbid.

I got enough troubles as it is.

Your heart gonna beat

as never before

It'll stop.

No, it's all

gonna change

From darkness to dawn

Mmm, Barney Google here.

Ah! Why do you squeal

and feel so darn bitter?

You'll score

like a Yankee hitter;

The Dodgers are winning.


the season will be spring


the birds will all sing


Signor Cupid will be king

So there ain't

gonna be no sorrow


No. Why borrow even

a small cup of sorrow?

Instead, get in your head,

mo caro.

That there ain't gonna be

no sorrow tomorrow

No, no, there ain't gonna be

no sorrow

For you and me



What did you say?

Quarter to 6:
00, Miss Carter.

A quarter of 6:

In the morning.

It's still dark out.

Yes, ma'am, but it's lightenin' up.

I think you should

have your watch fixed.

I will, ma'am,

just as soon as I get one.

Good mornin'- I mean,

good night, Miss Carter.

Good night.

Quarter of 6:

Better not be quarter of 6:00.

I told that goon to get me back by

- Oh!

These are going back.

I told Beth they pinch.

It's like wearing two vises.

Vise? Two vise.

So, where did she put that thing?

Oh, no.

It is quarter of 6:00.

I wonder,

which is the right life?

The simple or the nightlife?

When, pray, should one rise?

At sunset or at sunrise?

Which should be upper;

My breakfast or my supper?

Which is the right life?



No. "Which."

If the wood nymph left the park,

would Park Avenue excite her?

Would the glowworm trade her spark

for the latest Dunhill lighter?

Here's a question

I would pose

Tell me which

the sweeter smell makes

The aroma of the rose

Or the perfume

that Chanel makes?

Or this letter the hotel sent?


Which is the right life?

The simple or the nightlife?
