Smell Man Syndrome
Like a rat through the back way he's sneaking
With a gat he'll attack, fragrance reeking
His demeanor demented,
With gardenia he's scented
It's the statue in black that he's seeking.
Peter Lorre plays petulant, gardenia-scented Joel Cairo, and Humphrey Bogart is private eye Sam Spade, in
The Maltese Falcon
(John Huston;1941). Title by odoriferous David Cairns.
