Heaven, I’m in heaven. And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak. And I seem to find the happiness I seek. When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek.

When the doctor says things like these I like to remind myself he is actually a grandpa who has no idea what he’s saying.
"When they made this particular hero, they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an x-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And the didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that’s an extraordinary thing; there will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the doctor."
Rest in Peace William Horatio Powell | July 29th, 1892 – March 5th, 1984
William Powell, the dapper, sophisticated leading man of scores of films during the 1930s and 1940s and the wise-cracking detective in “Thin Man” movie series, died today. He was 91. Powell died at 5:45am of “old age”. The attending physician, Dr. Irving Hirshleifer said, “The old gentleman went very nicely, with his wife Diana holding his hand until the very end.” Powell, perhaps best known for his role as the suave detective Nick Charkes, despite the old age, retained the deep resonant voice that, along with his impeccable attire, contributed to his stature as a dashing leading man. | Spokane Chronicle; Mar 5, 1984
“Powell is to dialogue as Fred Astaire is to dance. His delivery is so droll and insinuating, so knowing and innocent at the same time, that it hardly matters what he’s saying. | Roger Ebert
