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 hisimprovised 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 Dry Martinis or other mixed drinks.
