A MEDIUM BECAUSE IT'S NOT RARE OR WELL DONE
THE AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN QUOTATIONS gives this to Ernie Kovacs, quoted in Leslie Halliwell's THE FILMGOER'S BOOK OF QUOTES (1973). A re-check of this with "Kovacs" didn't connect with the following hits. I can't read them on this computer, but it's probably not Ernie Kovacs.
