Cold Acquaintance

He's been thinking of taking the cure
Cause his drinking can make things obscure
While soaking in sherry
Did he choke his canary?
He's so stinking he wakes up unsure.

Think of this as a cautionary tale for New Year's Eve. Dan Duryea in Black Angel (Roy William Neill, 1946). With a little help and a title from old sot David Cairns. To watch a montage of Duryea going on a bender, go here and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Or see the whole movie on YouTube, here.  Happy New Year, boozehounds!

Hahahaha! IMO, Duryea can do no wrong in any film.

Isn't he the greatest? Next to him, Ray Milland in Lost weekend is a teetotaler!
