   Fred Shapiro has to have this line, or I'll throw him to Bluto.
   It's on the IMDB database for a film title from 1936.
   Google doesn't help much, but you can try it yourself.
  From "The Vanishing Village" by Barney Gallant, HEARST INTERNATIONAL/COSMOPOLITAN, August 1941, pg. 97, col. 1:

   Sonia ("the cigaret girl"--ed.) was among the first to celebrate the vitamin content of spinach.  In her visits from restaurant to restaurant, she would examine the menus, and if her favorite vegetable were missing she would exclaim, "What, no spinach? This is a hell of a place, no spinach!"
