Secondly, one thing I never liked about the movie and again, this is a terrific movie, the few quibbles notwithstanding are those dumb lines, "I was born .... I lived a few weeks when you loved me." Yeah, I get it for a man like Steele, even when he has finally found what could make him happy, he senses that one way or another, likely due to his own stupidity, he will throw it away. But those lines are corny way too unsubtle. And having Laurel say the lines at the end again, way too unsubtle. A movie should never say something is going to happen and then have it happen exactly that way. I just didn't like how Steele says those lines, and then have the movie turn out exactly that way, with Laurel saying the exact line. But, though I don't like the lines at all, at least it's better in the the original ending, with Bogie sitting over the typewriter with those lines types out but nobody actually speaksing the line.

I disagree with you completely. I love those lines!  Smiley
