Pretty Poison (1968) Poster


John Randolph: Morton Azenauer



  • Dennis Pitt : [Meeting with Mr. Azenauer in the prison]  There was some poison once, but no one recognized it. In fact, that poison was even quite... pretty-looking. So, the problem was, what to do about it? It took me some time to realize that what to do about it was very simple: nothing.

    Morton Azenauer : Nothing?

    Dennis Pitt : Correct, Mr. Azenauer, because who'd listen to me - known to be no good? But if that poison just stayed there, getting worse and worse, like poison always does - spreading, until even the blindest man could see, until he HAD to see...

    Morton Azenauer : Go on...

    Dennis Pitt : [Hesitating]  Sorry... I've learned that people only pay attention to what they discover for themselves. So long...

    Dennis Pitt : [Getting up]  If you're ever in Winslow, see what Sue Ann is up to, will you?

    Morton Azenauer : I'll keep an eye on her, Dennis.

    Dennis Pitt : So long.

    [Leaves the room, with Mr. Azenauer looking rather perplexed] 

  • Dennis Pitt : [upon being released on parole from a mental institution]  I must tell you, Mr. Azenaur, a lumber yard does seem like a slight waste of my talents.

    Morton Azenauer : Is that so?

    Dennis Pitt : Yes, sir. I've been taking a secret course in interplanetary navigation. I had hoped to be appointed to the first Venus rocket.

    Morton Azenauer : [not amused]  Cut that out, Dennis!

    Dennis Pitt : I was kidding, sir.

    Morton Azenauer : These fantasies of yours can be dangerous. Now, you lay off that stuff!

    Dennis Pitt : Yes, sir. Well, I better not miss my bus to the lumber yard. You'll be hearing from me.

    Morton Azenauer : Dennis... Believe me, Dennis, you're going out into a very real and very tough world. It's got no place at all for fantasies.
