Raging Against the World

A nose by any other name…

James Cagney was a hell of a guy.  If you’ve ever seen the Billy Wilder movie “One, Two, Three” you’ll realise the man had a gift for comedy that has never been appreciated.

There’s a story of him being driven around Hollywood back in the Golden Years and his car stopped at the lights.  In the next lane he saw Humphrey Bogart in the back of another car, picking his nose.

What would you do?  I bet you wouldn’t have done what James Cagney did.  He composed a poem and sent it to Mr Bogart:

“In this little town of ours, people see all sorts of primps and poses…

but movie stars in fancy cars shouldn’t pick their famous noses”

What do you mean you haven’t seen One, Two, Three?  It’s brilliant!
