South Pacific (1958)
Lt. Cable: [Cable has been told that Nellie is in love with Emile] That's hard to believe, sir; they tell me he's a middle-aged man.
Capt. George Brackett: [fuming] Cable, it is a common mistake for boys of your age and athletic ability to underestimate men who have reached their maturity. Young women frequently find older men attractive, strange as it may seem. I myself am over fifty. I am a bachelor. And Cable, I do not, by any means, consider myself th-r-rough.
[to Harbison, who is trying not to laugh]
Capt. George Brackett: What's the matter, Bill?
Cmdr. Bill Harbison: Nothing - -evidently!
[He bursts out laughing]
