Why, I make more money than Calvin Coolidge… put together!

Just a little shout-out to one of my all-time favorite movies, the immortal Singin’ In The Rain – a recent repeat viewing reminded me of the line referring to Calvin Coolidge, spoken (nay, shrieked!) by the splendid Jean Hagen in her Lina (“what’s wrong with the way I talk?”) Lamont role. Besides having a fantastic cast and magical music, the film also captures nicely the exuberance of the 1920s.

    • Hi! I assume you are not familiar with the movie “Singin In The Rain” – this is a quote from that film. It is spoken by someone who is supposed to be very stupid, because the sentence would make sense only if “Calvin Coolidge” were more than one person.
