back in april 2001, barry popik had gotten this expression back to a
passage in Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1955).  at the time,
barry thought he could take it back earlier, maybe to the 30s.  but
as far as i can see, we've had no reports on "meet cute" since then.

barry?  ben?  anybody?

(a friend has been asking about this on soc.motss.  he's a serious
film buff.  and, yes, we'll talk about almost anything on soc.motss.)
