Whisky Business

His cranium's pickled and grilled
Like his brain, his tongue's thick and unskilled
The poor dope really tries
But can't open his eyes
They're both draining hard liquor, distilled.

The morning after: June Vincent rousts Dan Duryea in Black Angel (Roy William Neill, 1946). Reeking of cheap booze and skid row, Duryea is my favorite down and out drunk in film. And yes, we know how to spell "whiskey". Title by David Cairns, all business.
