From The Cheap Detective (1978)
Bess: Hold onto your hat. Vladimir Tserijemiwtz is Ezra C.V. Mildew Dezire Jr.!
Lou Peckinpaugh: Wait a minute. Tserijemiwtz has two T's. The name you come up with don't have none.
Bess: That was the whole key. Some people spell the Czar of Russia T-S-A-R. But in America we spell it C-Z-A-R.
Lou Peckinpaugh: Any fool knows that.
Bess: So when I tried the American spelling, I came up with Ezra...
Bess, Lou Peckinpaugh: ...C.V. Mildew Dezire Jr.!
Lou Peckinpaugh: Of course! - Who the hell is he?
Bess: The owner of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Lou Peckinpaugh: Right. You did fine, angel. Now forget you ever heard that name. Don't ever repeat it to anyone.
