"Yes, Howard Hughes invented a bra for me. Or, he tried to. And one of the seamless ones like they have now. He was way ahead of his time. But I never wore it in The Outlaw (1943). And he never knew. He wasn't going to take my clothes off to check if I had it on. I just told him I did." (IMDB)

"It's been suggested that if the super-naturalists really had the powers they claim, they'd win the lottery every week."
