An irrepressible character actor with a wit as dry as a martini in the Gobi Desert, Charles Butterworth played the leading man’s charmingly daffy sidekick in screwball comedies throughout the 1930s – a decade he spent almost constantly inebriated, both on-screen and off. Out of Those Wet Clothes and Into a Dry Martini (the title inspired by his most famous one-liner) provides an intoxicating look at this nearly-forgotten master of the comic quip and cynical aside through his preferred lens – the bottom of a glass. This delicious compendium offers up an entertaining profile of Butterworth, hilarious excerpts from his movies, and a whimsical assortment of rare-and-rediscovered cocktail recipes from the watering holes of vintage Hollywood.

About the Author:

Author Michael Turback became a gentlemanly drinker during his tender days at Cornell, and he remained curious and adventurous on the matter of imbibing throughout a prominent career as restaurateur and saloonkeeper. Cocktail programs developed in his establishments have influenced the beverage business for over three decades. Michael is credited with reviving classic formulas, influencing a generation of “craft bartenders,” and elevating mixology to a culinary art. As an arbiter of food, wine, and cocktails, he continues to advise the hospitality industry. As an author, he has published more than a dozen books, most notably "All the Gin Joints," a guide to progressive gin-based cocktails developed in America’s best bars.
