Mae West: Dry Martini

A line said by MAE WEST in a motion picture is often attributed to her. But fortunately we have Sam, the answer man, to set the record straight.
• • "Let's get out of these wet clothes and into a dry Martini." Who said that — — asked Jim Anderson of Bathgate, England.
• • Sam's response: It was originally coined by Robert Benchley's press agent and was taken up by Mae West in her 1937 comedy "Every Day's A Holiday," where she was a con woman who sold the Brooklyn Bridge to suckers.
