Scriptwriters from Raymond Chandler to S.J. Perelman penned great linesfor everyone from Humphrey Bogart to Groucho Marx. It was the classic era of comedy with acts like Abbot and Costello, Hope and Crosby, the Marx brothers, Mae West, W.C. Fields, and the great screwball acts like Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn. Straight out of the American vaudeville tradition, it was the wisecracking that powered these comedies along. The wisecrack being that sharp comeback or reposte that left those around for dead. Rosemarie Jarski's selection mixes all the classic Hollywood lines with little known gems to leave your dinner guests for dead as you wisecrack like the best of them.
