Probably a quick solve. I’ve been quoting the line “Touché, distinctly touché” for years, yet I can’t remember where it’s from! I always thought it was from Sleuth (1972)—I know, that’s what we need, another Sleuth mystery—but I found an online copy of the script and it wasn’t there.
I have a feeling it’s from some sort of mystery movie, even if not Sleuth. Anyone know? Google comes back with one of my posts here.
