Trivia

Lionel, in a Freudian slip, says Judith (who is going off for a possibly romantic weekend) is not Eskimo Nell then corrects it to her not being Little Nell. Eskimo Nell was the star of a downright pornographic poem popularized in the 1940s. She was a jaded and indefatigable prostitute. Little Nell, from "The Old Curiosity Shop" was a sweet and innocent 14 year old orphan. See more »
