Quotes:

(1) Matt Nolan (James Cagney) in Taxi! (1932): ' I wouldn't go for that dame if she was the last woman on earth... and I'd just got out of the navy.'

(2) Rudy Adams (Jean Harlow) to Gypsy (Dorothy Burgess) in Hold Your Man (1933): ' You know, you wouldn't be a bad looking dame... if it wasn't for your face.'

(4) Cleo Borden (Mae West) staging an opera in Goin' to Town (1935): 'I'm gonna sing Delilah. I've got a lot of respect for that dame. There's one lady barber that made good.'

(5) Waldo Lydecker (Clifton Webb) to Det. Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews) in Laura (1944):

-- Allan: ' What's the matter with me? Why can't I be cool? What's the secret? '
-- Bogey: ' There's no secret, kid. Dames are simple. I never met one that didn't understand a slap on the mouth or a slug from a.45.'
