Un État de Transport Continu

The Classic Movie Blog Association (CMBA)  has just finished another blogathon on classic films having Transport as an important part of the story, if not the main theme itself.

For example, the blog Outspoken and Freckled did a post on the James Cagney film Taxi (1932).

All the participants are members of the CMBA and the entries are good introductions to the films cited, or serve as great focus on areas of the cinematic group effort that we may have overlooked.
And example comes from the post on Taxi mentioned above:
...Funny duo Stone and Bennett as Skeet and Ruby are a quirky pair that provide witty breaks throughout. Dry cynicism with a nasal dead-pan Bennett especially, as she’s given generous latitude of lines to ramble on nonsensically, yet it delivers. Ruby to Skeet: “C’mon I feel like being bored and you can do the job better than anybody I know.”

I wish I had said that line.
