Monster Masher

When roping this fine feathered floozy
Hyde's opening line is a doozy
Many shillings he'll pay
If she's willing to play
She's no dope, but declines to be choosey.  

Music hall entertainer Ivy Pearson (Miriam Hopkins) accepts an indecent proposal from Edward Hyde (Fredric March) in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Rouben Mamoulian; 1931). Donald B. Benson created the monstrous title.
