To Have and Have Not (1944) Directed by Howard Hawks from William Faulkner’s adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s novel. Walter Brennan as Eddie and Paul Marion as Beauclere.
Beauclere: You’ve got a good memory for one who drinks.
Eddie: Drinkin’ don’t bother my memory. If it did, I wouldn’t drink. I couldn’t. You see, I’d forget how good it was. Then where’d I be? Start drinkin’ water again.
Beauclere: Maybe you’d forget about water too.
Eddie: No I wouldn’t. I see too much of it.
