Alphonse Ethier as Cragg

  • (Alphonse Ethier) "So, now what?"
  • (Barbara Stanwyck) "Well, the future looks very bright. Just as I was leaving the cemetery, Ed Sipple made me a proposition. And last night the manager at the -- burlesque house offered me a job in the chorus to do a strip act."

You must be a master. Not a slave. Look, here, Nietzsche says, "All life, no matter how we idealize it, is nothing more nor less than exploitation." That's what I'm telling you. Exploit yourself. Go to some big city where you will find opportunities. Use men. Be strong. Defiant. Use men. To get the t'ings you want."
