I never saw the 1948 movie, but back in 1970-71, ACT put on a great revival of William Saroyan's 1939 play, The Time of Your Life, set in Nick's Saloon at #1 Pacific Street on the Embarcadero. One line that had the audience howling with laughter was uttered by one of two heavily made-up street walkers, who were being tossed out of the bar by Nick, "Ya know, we wuz formerly models at Magnin's!" Just one row in front of me sat Cyril Magnin himself, with a wry smile on his face.
