(Frank Butler (1890-1967), British screenwriter, and Frank Cavett (1907-1973), U.S. screenwriter. Father Fitzgibbon (Barry Fitzgerald), Going My Way, after turning down an invitation to go golfing because of the profanity heard there (1944).)

(Havelock Ellis (1859-1939), British psychologist. The Dance of Life, ch. 3 (1923).)
