Fun Stuff

From Gentleman Jim (1942)
James J. Corbett aka Gentleman Jim: The first time I saw you fight I was just a bit of a kid. There wasn't a man alive who could have stood up to you then. And tonight, well, I was just mighty glad that you weren't the John L. Sullivan of ten years ago.
John L. Sullivan: Is that what you're thinkin' now?
James J. Corbett aka Gentleman Jim: That's what I was thinking before I got into the ring with you.
John L. Sullivan: That's a fine decent thing for you to say, Jim. I don't knopw how we might have come out, oh, say, eight or ten tears ago. I... maybe I was faster then, but if I was, tonight you're the fastest thing on two feet
