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.

Some gentleman.

I wouldn't talk if I were you.

That's one thing I am not, thank God.




You, you big weasel. I'm not you.

Thank you. You have

such a way with words.



Touch the lights.

Oh, yes, I keep forgetting.

You love dark rooms.


Like a bat.

I'd rather be a bat than a duck.

Hmm. Thought I was a weasel.

You are a weasel and a duck.

Rather intriguing combination, I'd say.


Never mind. You're too drunk

to follow anything intricate.

Oh, yeah? Where are you going?


To mother.

On the next train.

Oh, that's sweet.

All I do is just take a few drinks

to unwind from the show...

Unravel, you mean.

Come again.

No, I don't believe I will actually.

I'm rather bored with the whole thing.

You're bored.

Good night.

Why do you think I drink?


Oh, what an exit.

Theatricality, my dear,

is your department.

Oh, wait a minute.

I gotta write that down someplace.

"Theatricality, my dear,

is your department."

Very clever.


With a million neon rainbows

burning below me

And a million blazing taxis

raising a roar;

Here I am

Above the town

In my pet

pailletted gown

Down in the depths

On the 90th floor


While the crowds at El Morocco

punish the parquet;

And at 21, the couples

clamor for more

More! More! More!

I'm deserted

and depressed

In my regal eagle nest;

Down in the depths

On the 90th floor

When the one

you thought you wanted

Wants ms mother

What's the use of swank

and cash in the bank galore?

Why, even the

janitor's wife

Has a perfectly

good love life

And here am I;

Facing tomorrow

Alone in my sorrow

Down in the depths

On the 90th floor

Oh, God.

All right. I'll

see you and raise you 40.

That's too damn rich for me. I'm

out. Aw, Willie, you're no sport.

I'll see that.

And you're a sap.

So am I, I guess.

I'm in.

Now it's up to me. That's right,

Johnny boy. Cost you 40 to stay in.

I don't know. Don't tell

us you're shy suddenly.

Don't be a sore loser, Willie.

It's unbecoming.

I don't see what you're

so cheerful about. Shh!

This guy's a one-man crash.

Shush yourself.

I bet.

Yeah, you always do.

All right, here they are.

Tens and kings.

Two pair, ace high.

I could've beat that.

Yeah, so can I.

Three boys and two little giris.

Didn't I tell you I was a sap?

What do you got?

None of your business.

Well, Mr. Spanish?

Oh, I'm sorry.

Uh-oh. Here it comes.

Okay, save the apologies.

Let's see what you have.

Now don't be a sore loser.

Two of these.

My giris.

And three of these.

My goodness.

I'm sorry.

I love this guy.

I think we'd better quit-

He's been sorry all night.

Before my wife wakes up

and shoots me.

I'm tired of being a masochist.


Hey, I know what you mean. Gentlemen,

when my heart is sick, I've got a remedy

that does the trick.

You win.

No. Gentlemen.


Whenever you are blue,

I advise you to try my remedy too.

Just say...


Your trouble will be done


Your victory will be won


We're all gonna have fun

'cause there ain't gonna be no sorrow;


That's right. We won't

be playing you tomorrow.

Yes, yes, tomorrow

It's all gonna be grand


You'll start leading the band


We'll live in a new land

I say this to myself in Venice,

and here I am.

You should've stayed in Venice.

See ya, Murray.

Because there

Ain't gonna be no sorrow



Ciao yourself.

Still low, Harry?

Nobody wild about Harry?

Ooh, ooh, ooh!

Ooh, domani.

Eh, domani.

You're sure gonna meet

The one you'll adore
