How to Get Out of Those Wet Clothes and Into a Dry Martini.

American actor and Notre Dame alumnus, Charles Butterworth was a master at playing diffident, absentminded middle-aged bachelors. An offscreen drinking buddy of such literary wits as Robert Benchley and Corey Ford, Butterworth became so famous for his dry quips and cynical asides that Hollywood screenwriters began writing only fragmentary scripts for him, hoping that the actor would "fill in the blanks" with his own bon mots.

The most famous of his improvised lines is immortalized in 1937's "Every Day's a Holiday," as Butterworth suggests that Charles Winniger "get out of those wet clothes and into a Dry Martini." The bowl of this 1930s-era glass is supported with a Victorian column -- the perfect pedestal to showcase the iconic Martini or other mixed drinks. Offered is a Gift Box Set of 2 Retro-style Martini Glasses, inspired by Mr. Butterworth himself.  Intended for keeping or giving.
