While dining at the Belvedere Hotel with her husband William Howard and his family one evening, the actress Dorothy Lamour was approached by a young sailor. "Miss Lamour, I saw your last four pictures," he began. "They were terrible, and I want my dollar and sixty cents back." Lamour, stunned, silently reached into her purse and handed the man two dollars. Then, in a bid to salvage something from the exchange, she finally mustered a reply: "I'd like my forty cents change, please!"
