Wilder and Diamond were precise writers. But when it came time to Some Like It Hot’s punch line, they were absolutely indecisive. They got as far as Lemmon ripping off his wig and saying he can’t marry Osgood Fielding III because, “I’m a man.” What comes next? Diamond suggested “Nobody’s perfect,” and Wilder said to keep it in so they could send the script to the mimeographer. But then they were really going to settle it. “We have a whole week to think about it,” Wilder said. “We thought about it all week. Neither of us could come up with anything better, so we shot that line, still not entirely satisfied.” Viewers felt entirely differently. “The audience just exploded,” Wilder said. “That line got one of the biggest laughs I’ve ever heard in the theater. But we just hadn’t trusted it when we wrote it; we just didn’t see it. ‘Nobody’s perfect.’ The line had come too easily, just popped out.”
Some Like It Hot (1959) dir. Billy Wilder

WONDER BAR (1934) | dir. Lloyd Bacon
“The other [scene that stands out above the rest] involved a handsome man, asking a dancing couple if he could cut in. The female partner, expecting his attention, agrees, only to see him dance with her male partner. Jolson then flaps his wrist and says, “Boys will be boys. Woo!”. This scene almost caused the Production Code to reject the film, and was featured in the opening scenes of the documentary film The Celluloid Closet (1996).”

DISHONORED (1931) dir. Josef von Sternberg — "In an article written by Robert S. White for the April 4, 1931 edition of The Scrutiner, he talks about animal actors, especially those who belonged to J.H. Kerr, the owner of an establishment called Animal Land which provided animals for film productions. Running down the list of animals provided for the film Morocco (another film directed by von Sternberg and starring Marlene Dietrich) a black cat is mentioned. The writer goes on to explain the cat’s name was Blackie and that he was one of Animal Land’s best money-makers. 'Blackie was a stray that wandered into the tightly fenced preserves of Animal Land one evening just about feeding time,' White writes. 'Finding the meal was first class, Blackie remained. He proved to be friendly, anxious to please and has become one of the most reliable of all animal actors.' (Another article from 1930 noted that Blackie was trained to stretch and yawn on command.) The article goes on to explain how Blackie became the property of Paramount Pictures. After his role in Morocco, Blackie was hired for Dishonored. 'But Blackie was not content to be just a fleeting brand,' White continues. 'When put before the cameras in Dishonored, he purred with conscious pride and proceeded to give one of the most remarkable feline performances ever witnessed by an astonished director and company. Blackie was promptly assigned a more important role. He became Marlene Dietrich’s pet, and thus carries an extended role through-out the entire production, even winning himself a big-eyed closeup at the end of the picture.' White went on to explain how von Sternberg proclaimed, 'That closeup will make Dishonored worth ten thousand dollars more at the box office. Buy Blackie for the property department and give him a home. I want him for my next picture.' Because of this, Blackie was given a valuation of eight thousand dollars." [x]

Wait a minute, Mister. You're not talking to one of your chumps. You're talking to your wife! You're talking to somebody who knows you red, white and blue. And you can't fool me anymore.
