Trish, you are correct.. the quote is from "Ada"...yes, Susan was beautiful (as always) in this film and was perfect for the role of Ada. I had read that she and Dean Martin weren't crazy about each other, but I thought they were actually good together in the film. I think I remember reading that she had requested a screening of Ada while she was ill. It's been quite a while since I've read through some of her bios. I need to go back and refresh a little."Portrait of a Survivor" by Beverly Linet is my favorite one. It seems to be the most thoroughly researched and most thoughtfully written one.
I watched Ada this past week.Martin Balsam and Wilfred Hyde-White were excellent their roles also.
I love the "hen party" scene where Ada tells off the "eating high off the hog" snobs. Nobody could deliver a "set the record" straight line better than Susan.
