My Audrey Totter tribute

Audrey Totter, one of the great Hollywood femme fatales (as well as one of the last of Eddie Muller's "Dark City Dames"), passed away in Dec. 2013, at age 95, while I was writing THE DEVIL'S SHARE, and I was inclined to pay a little homage to her in a scene in the book. Few people have noticed it - it's around page 70 in the hardcover edition - but I'm happy to have gotten it in there, a little tribute from one tough fictional dame to another. The clip I referenced wasn't on YouTube, so I went ahead and uploaded it myself. It's from one of my favorite movies of hers, 1949's TENSION.
