Cellmate of the Month

She stares at this mister-ish frau
Whose bearing seems twisted somehow
Then we fade out to black
But what's played on the track
Is "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now?"

 David Cairns

Barbara Stanwyck and Lillian Roth (top) are Ladies They Talk About (Howard Bretherton, William Keighley; 1933). From David Cairns: "It's all true! Stanwyck encounters the cigar-smoking butch women inmates in Ladies They Talk About, looks amazed, and then the Vitaphone Orchestra plays her out with a cheeky, familiar tune..."
