The clip Overhearing Helen's parents from The Lost Weekend (1945) Just walked in for a simple haircut. No, that wasn't enough, not for New York. They gave me a shampoo, scalp massage and a manicure. Thought they were going to tear my shoes off and paint my toenails. I had a lovely morning. Just did a little window shopping. Didn't want to get all tired out. On account of meeting that young man? Now, Mother. Who did you get a haircut for? Wonder what's keeping Helen. She'll be here. This Birnam fellow went to Cornell, didn't he? I believe so. But he never graduated. I wonder why. How old is he? Thirty-three. He has no job. As far as I can find out, he never had one. I wish Helen wasn't so vague. Maybe he has a little money. Some people do, you know, Father. He ought to have a job anyway. He's a writer. Writer? What did he write? I never heard of his name. Now Father, relax. You always expect the worst. I hope he realizes that Helen's our only daughter and we ought to know a few things about him. Those'll all come out...his background, his prospects, his church affiliations.
