GUEST,Dave Illingworth Top musical number in film (115* d) RE: Top musical number in film 22 Nov 12


Getting down to basics, how about WC Fields rendition of "The Fatal Glass Of Beer" from film of same name (1933).

"Once upon the sidewalk he met a Salvation Army gal
And wickedly he broke her tambourine.
All she said was 'Heaven bless you' and placed a mark upon his brow
With a kick she'd learned before she had been saved."

The film also contains one of my favourite WC Fields lines:-

My Uncle Ichabod said, speaking of the city,
"It ain't no place for a woman, gal, but pretty men go thar."
