Dorothy Parker on Sex, Dating, and Money

220px-Young_Dorothy_Parker“By the time you swear you’re his,
Shivering and sighing.
And he vows his passion is,
Infinite, undying.
Lady make note of this —
One of you is lying.”
― Dorothy Parker

“I don’t know much about being a millionaire, but I’ll bet I’d be darling at it.”
― Dorothy Parker

How has there not been a big, Oscar-nomination-ful biopic about Dorothy Parker?



  1. I think 19 years ago someone thought “Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle” *was* the big, full biopic that you’re thinking of. Alas, Oscar didn’t agree. And as a huge Dorothy Parker fan myself, I settled for the proverbial crumbs on that one too, Jennifer Jason Leigh’s droll interpretation not withstanding. Sometimes I think the best thing about that movie was the cloches. 😉
