Blow that past me one more time


  It's very easy to believe
  one wasn't yet alive, the
  night they invented cham-
  pagne, but it's hard not
  to feel conceived on the
  spot. This was cinematog-
  raphy by Sidney Hickox,
  montage by Howard Hawks.
  So, sure, it was Scotch.

  Fastball down the middle.
  Her arrival is framed by
  two right arms at once,
  and spins against the
  foreground flow, to rock
  the man back on his heels.
  That should not be legal.

Howard Hawks
  director & producer
