HEAVEN CAN WAIT

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch (1943)

Mademoiselle:

In your papa’s time, papa kiss mama and then marry.

But this is 1887! Time of bicycle, the typewriter has arrive, soon everybody speak over telephone, and people have new idea of value of kiss.

What was bad yesterday is lot of fun today. There is a wonderful saying in France: “Les baisers sont comme des bonbons qu’on mange parce qu’ils sont bons.” This mean: “Kiss is like candy. You eat candy only for the beautiful taste, and this is enough reason to eat candy.”

Henry Van Cleve:

You mean I can kiss a girl once…

Mademoiselle:

Ten times! Twenty times! And no obligation.
