The clip Investigating Elizabeth Short Murder Part 2 from The Black Dahlia (2006)
Johnny on the spot here at the diner.
Twenty-seven straight hours at that grill.
Twenty-seven straight, last 17 overtime.
You ask anybody here.
They'll alibi me up tighter than a popcorn fart
and that's pretty fucking tight.
When was the last time you saw your daughter, Mr. Short?
Betty came west in '43, stars in her eyes.
I promised her three squares and a five-spot, she kept the house tidy.
She live with you then?
I gave her the boot in July.
Moved to Santa Barbara. Sent me a postcard a couple weeks later.
Some soldier beat her up pretty bad.
That's the last I heard from her.
I need three pigs in a blanket.
Keep your fucking panties on.
Was that soldier her boyfriend, Mr. Short?
Boyfriend? They were all her boyfriends.
As long as they wore a uniform.
See, Betty believed in quantity before quality.
You calling your own daughter a tramp?
I got five daughters.
One rotten apple ain't so bad.
Well, maybe this time she had a boyfriend.
Any names, Mr. Short?
Look, Tom, Dick, Harry, it don't matter.
She said she was looking for movie work,
but she just paraded Hollywood Boulevard
in those black get-ups of hers.
I mean, who wouldn't get herself killed doing that, huh?
