Wild Awake at 83 Pitt Street
SCENE FROM THE FILM THE PUBLIC ENEMY:
Tom Powers (played by James Cagney) and his girlfriend Kitty (played by Mae Clarke) sit around the breakfast table.
TOM: Ain't you got a drink in the house?
KITTY: Not before breakfast, dear.
TOM: l didn't ask you for any lip. l asked you if you got a drink.
KITTY: l know, Tom... but l wish…
TOM: There you go with that “wishing” stuff. l wish you was a wishing well... so that l could tie a bucket to you and sink you.
KITTY: Maybe you found someone you like better.
Tom reaches across the table, violently smashing a grapefruit in Kitty’s face
