Wasn't that a movie?  Grande Finale in the courtroom, the thief said, "I
wrote it all myself."  The author said, "I got part of it from Negro
Spirituals [as the Negros flown in from the cotton fields burst into song],
part from the songs of the Immigrant Irish [as the troupe of Irish Cops
bursts into song]...."  You get the picture.  Nice finale, but hokey.   (:
