  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Boris Karloff: The name of our story is "The Devil's Ticket." It has to do with an artist, and they tell us that one picture is worth a thousand words. You will see Macdonald Carey, Joan Tetzel, Patricia Medina, and John Emery. Now there's a rogue's gallery if I ever saw one. And I can assure you they're up to no good. As you'll find out for yourself if you have the courage to stay with us.

    • Marie: Don't let him cheat you.
      Hector: Old Spengler, how can you say that? He knows an original Hector Vayne is worth a thousand dollars. So maybe he'll give me ten bucks for it.

    • Hector: Who are you?
      The Pawnbroker: Your benefactor. The one who can give you all that you desire.
      Hector: The devil you mean?
      The Pawnbroker: Now, now, let's not mention any names.

    • Hector: Just sign my name?
      The Pawnbroker: That's all. Just a legal precaution.
      Hector: Legal.
      The Pawnbroker: Oh, don't scoff, Mr. Vayne. In my time I've had dealings with many lawyers.

  • NOTES (2)
