Had to look that last word up - it's French and means "pout" or "grimace" (and should be spelled with one "e").

On the back of one of the busts, someone had written "Victor Bruno." D'OH!
And on the front of the first bust, it looks like someone wrote "Victor Buona" :lol: .

Even better than Widmark: How about fellow noir veteran (D.O.A., 711 Ocean Drive, etc.) Edmond O'Brien? His comic villain role as "Fats" Murdock in The Girl Can't Help It pretty well steals the movie. I can easily see him playing Louis/Louie the Lilac the same way in this script.

Blake Edwards was someone to talk - he had Tony Curtis play The Great Leslie just like Adam West played Batman: perfectly straight.

This'll sound like a noob question, but who's Audrey? Yvonne's stunt double?
