Picnic Moonglow video

from 1955 movie with Kim Novak as Marjorie 'Madge' Owens and William Holden as Hal Carter. Quotes
Madge Owens: I guess neither of us thought too much about anything. Good night.
Hal Carter: When will I see you?
Madge Owens: I don't know.
Hal Carter: What time are you through at the dime store?
Madge Owens: Six.
Hal Carter: Maybe I could come by then. I start a job tomorrow. Maybe not with Benson. Someplace. You don't mind seeing a guy who's just a grain scooper, do you?
Madge Owens: Of course not.
Hal Carter: Baby, would you kiss me good night?
Madge Owens: No.
Hal Carter: Just once for for luck maybe? If I promise not to hold you? Are you trying to punish me?
Madge Owens: Yes. I think I was trying to punish you. Kiss me, Hal.
Hal Carter: Being with you is wonderful, baby. You make me feel... important. No! You make me feel... patient.
Madge Owens: Do I?
Review
The morning of a small town Labor Day picnic, a drifter (Hal Carter) blows into town to visit an old fraternity buddy (Alan Benson) who also happens to be the son of the richest man in town. Hal is an egocentric braggart - all potential and no accomplishment. He meets up with Madge Owens, the town beauty queen and girlfriend of Alan Benson. Picnic offers superior acting all around, some great cinematography, and a number of excellent scenes, including the famous dance sequence between Holden and Novak.

  William Inge's play Picnic is set in a small Kansas town, Hutchinson, where drifter William Holden comes to town to look up and old friend from college, Cliff Robertson. As it happens he arrives on Labor Day and the town is having their annual Labor Day picnic. William Holden was so nervous about having to dance in the "Moonglow" scene that Joshua Logan took him to Kansas roadhouses to practice his dance steps.
