3 things about Mitchell Leisen’s EASY LIVING

Easy Living [1937]

1. She’s sitting on the upper, open deck of the bus, minding her own business. An expensive fur coat falls on her head. She pulls it off and says, “Hey, what’s the big idea?” An Indian gentleman in a turban sitting behind her says, “Kismet.” She gets off the bus and we never see him again.
2. “You know what they say: where’s there’s smoke–there must be someone smoking.”
3. Simultaneously, all the food doors in the automat pop open. Riot ensues.
