Revel May Care


For each gin-addled salesman, a floozy
An insolent gal who'll get boozy
A crowded hotel
Where the rowdy raise hell
This sin-loaded tale is a doozy!

Booze on the table, cash on the floor: Guy Kibbee and Joan Blondell in a suggestive still from Convention City (Archie Mayo; 1933). Several lines of dialog were ordered removed by Motion Picture Production Code censors, including the following: "Now you take off that dress and I'll take off my toupee, huh!"
