♛ The Best of Nick Charles
A writer who was interviewing Bill the other day heard a commotion out in the hall.
"Oh. It’s probably Mrs. Powell sliding down the bannisters," Bill philosophically explained to the visitor.
William Powell and Ronald Colman in Beau Geste (1926)
As long as a reasonable amount of jealousy exists between married folk, that marriage is sailing in safe waters – or so we’ve been told. If true, the William Powell ship of matrimony is doing alright.
It was tiny Diana Powell herself who told us the story that illustrates our point.
It happened a few months ago, MGM just handed Diana the script of her newest film, “Go West!”, a Marx Brothers movie. As she read it she grew more and more amused. Finally she was roaring with unrestrained laughter.
Husband, William Powell, attracted by the outburst, came into the room.
"What’s the fun?" he asked.
"I’m reading my new script," she howled.
Mr. Powell looked at her for a moment and actually pouted. “Well,” he said, “you never laugh that way at a script of mine.”
So you see–
yeah okay but william powell
