Grease Monkeyshines

He takes a look under her hood
and likes what he sees, as most would
This bashful mechanic
goes into a panic
Too late he finds out she's no good

Mickey Rooney doesn't get what Dianne Foster sees in him in Drive a Crooked Road (Richard Quine, 1954), scripted by Blake Edwards. Rooney gives an uncharacteristically subdued and terrific performance in the film. Image source: Noir of the Week.
