A TOUCH OF GEORGE BERNARD SHAW IN THE IMPEACHMENT FIASCO


John Bolton is the Alfred P. Doolittle of the Washington circuit.  Doolittle, of course, is Eliza Doolittle’s father.  When Doolittle [Stanley Holloway, in the movie] hears that Professor Henry Higgins [Rex Harrison] has nabbed his daughter [Audrey Hepburn], he figures there ought to something in it for him, so he goes along to put the arm on Higgins for a fiver.  Higgins’ sidekick asks Doolittle, “How did you know she was here?”  In a splendid burst of poetic Welsh diction, Doolittle replies.         

“I'd tell you, Governor, if you'd let me get a word in.        

I'm willing to tell ya.

I'm wanting to tell ya.                

I'm waiting to tell ya!”

Now if Bolton could only be relied upon to dance as well as sing.
