Subject:        Shakespeare References in Films

There's a mention of Lady Macbeth in Stephen Fry's Bright Young Things
(worth seeing) and while channeling surfing, I came across a documentary
about Lucille Ball with a clip from a movie with her  and Van Heflin and
Van Heflin's character saying, as he raises his glass of champagne,
"That's Shakespeare for bottom's up."

I don't know the name of the film from which the clip was taken.
