"Everybody's broke darling" Just watched the movie on TCM, pre code

https://www.classicchicagomagazine.com/dinner-at-eight/

It’s 1933, the Great Depression is in full swing, “Everybody’s broke, Darling”, everybody’s cheating, husbands, wives, businessmen, even the President and “everything’s the matter with the affairs of the nation.” To top it off the wrong class torments the right class, vulgar opportunists blackmailing maids, cooks dropping “dressy” aspic on the floor, cheeky bellboys skimming liquor money, butlers knifing chefs, and a Montana miner trying to take over the company of an Old Guard shipping magnate. Although everyone is pulleying themselves up fist by fist there is always something or someone ready to cut the rope.


Maybe we will all be saying this in a year or so?

1. "Dinner at Eight"

That is the film title. You listed the tag line. Dinner at Eight is a wonderful film with an all star cast.
