Such Good Friends (1971)
Burgess Meredith: Kalman
Bernard Kalman : [haughtily, in a loin cloth at a New York rooftop party] You liked my novel? I was surprised when it sold. I didn't write it for that. Anyway, I've been elected head of this new cultural committee. I flew to Washington last week. I didn't want to go, God knows... but the position has given me a sense of freedom. I can, at last, approach the President and say, point blank..."How 'bout a little nukie?" I will have performed a valuable service for this troubled nation. Shall we dance, madame?
