Uncle Steve, you are wonderful!
Jerry, last night when I was in a somewhat toodle-loo condition, I said several things. I distinctly remember saying one thing. i asked you to marry me. I see now that I was a little hasty and I wish to apologize.
Why should you apologize if you didn't mean it?
What makes you think I didn't mean it?
I've been told that a man doesn't mean anything he says after 2 AM, when he's toodle-loo.

What survives of Gold Diggers of Broadway was a fascinating find to me
Except for two clips that are on The Jazz Singer DVD, this movie is lost. One of them begins with a man and a young woman who calls him uncle but is being proposed marriage. Then it's a big finale with many men in top hats and tails and a couple of acrobats doing somersaults. The screen then goes black but the surviving audio continues. The other surviving sequence has a bunch of ballerinas performing on stage with swans in a pond at the end. All this was in two-strip color. It was all fascinating to watch and hear. Since I'm not so sure the entire movie will ever be found, I'm reviewing this now and giving my rating which you'll see above. So on that note, those surviving Gold Diggers of Broadway clips were sure fascinating to watch.
