Twenty Plus Two (1961)
Desmond Slocum: What's a corpse look like after it's been in the water for two weeks? You wouldn't know your grandmother from a salted mackerel.
Tom Alder: [Looking at a photo] When was this last picture taken?
Mrs. Eleanor Delaney: At Christmastime. Just before... before she left.
Tom Alder: [Flips back to a previous page in photo album] When was this one taken?
Mrs. Eleanor Delaney: Several months before, around Easter in 1947. It's the best picture we've ever had of her. It's her father's favorite.
Tom Alder: Is that why he gave it to the newspapers and the police?
Mrs. Eleanor Delaney: Well it was an excellent likeness of her.
Tom Alder: [Flips again to the last picture in the album] It's not as good as this one.
Tom Alder: [Indicating the picture taken at Easter] This is a picture of a child, with a very pretty face, but still a child.
Tom Alder: [flips to a later page in the photo album] In a few months the face doesn't change much. But at the age of sixteen this is a picture of a woman in... a sweater... a very tight sweater... who was definitely not a child.
Jimmy Honsinger: It just doesn't make sense. A missing picture, a blackmailer in California, a movie star, Doris Delaney... it can't possibly tie together.
Linda Foster: When I looked up your name in the directory and saw your Brentwood address I was happy. You were successful. The house measures up. But I think I rather expected more of you, Tom.
Tom Alder: Yeah, well, you always did, didn't you, Linda.
Jacques Pleschette: You've investigated Auguste Pleschette thoroughly. You speak with the ring of authority. You've seen a chapter and a verse.
Tom Alder: And the book.
Tom Alder: Can I buy you a drink, Mister Slocum?
Desmond Slocum: I don't need nobody to buy me a drink. Not today, I don't. I got my four dollars from the blood bank and that'll carry me through tonight. Look me up tomorrow and I'll be glad to kiss your foot for the price of a drink; not tonight, buster. Go on. Get lost.
