The Lady from Shanghai

Bannister’s note to the D.A.—that’d fix it that I’m officially innocent—but that’s a big word, innocent; stupid’s more like it. Well, everybody is somebody’s fool. The only way to stay out of trouble is to grow old, so I guess I’ll concentrate on that. Maybe I’ll live so long that I forget her. Maybe I’ll die, trying.
