The security personnel of the nation of Klopstokia have taken away an American brush salesman for some rough treatment, dismaying the woman who’s fallen in love with him, daughter of the tiny country’s president.]
Angela [played by Susan Fleming] [tearfully]: “Father, they won't hurt him, will they?”
The President played by W.C. Fields]: “Only for about two hours—then they'll shoot him.”—Million Dollar Legs (1932), screenplay by Henry Myers, Nicholas T. Barrows, and an uncredited Ben Hecht, based on a story by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, directed by Edward F. Cline
