Twentieth Century is a 1934 American pre-Code screwball comedy film. Much of the film is set on the 20th Century Limited train as it travels from Chicago to New York City . The film was directed by Howard Hawks , stars John Barrymore and Carole Lombard , and features Walter Connolly , Roscoe Karns and Edgar Kennedy . Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur adapted their Broadway play of the same name [1] – itself based on the unproduced play Napoleon of Broadway by Charles Bruce Millholland – with uncredited contributions from Gene Fowler and Preston Sturges . [2]

Along with Frank Capra 's It Happened One Night , also released in 1934 (which amazingly has exactly the same music over the opening titles), Twentieth Century is considered to be a prototype for the screwball comedy. "Howard Hawks' rapid-fire romantic comedy established the essential ingredients of the screwball – a dizzy dame, a charming but befuddled hero, dazzling dialogue and a dash of slapstick ." [3] Its success propelled Lombard into the front ranks of film comediennes. The film was added to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 2011. [ citation needed ]

Ebullient Broadway impresario Oscar Jaffe (John Barrymore) takes an unknown lingerie model named Mildred Plotka (Carole Lombard) and makes her the star of his latest play, despite the grave misgivings of everyone else, including his two long-suffering assistants, accountant Oliver Webb ( Walter Connolly ) and the consistently tipsy Owen O'Malley ( Roscoe Karns ). Through intensive training, Oscar transforms his protegée into the actress "Lily Garland", and both she and the play are resounding successes. Over the next three years, their partnership spawns three more smash hits, and Lily is recognized as a transcendent talent.

The mix of gin and chocolate are amazing together and as Gary Regan points out in Joy of Mixology , the lemon "acts as a foil to the sweet liqueur." It seems that the genius behind the Twentieth Century was C.A. Truck, according to William J Tarling's 1937 Cafe Royal Cocktail Book - a compilation of drinks from the bars of London.

There is another variation of the Twentieth Century Cocktail that has the same flavor profile but makes a few changes to the ingredients.

In this recipe either Cocchi Americano or Lillet Blanc are recommended as the dry vermouth substitutes. The chocolate flavor comes from Amaro Meletti, an herbal digestif that is flavored with anise and saffron yet it has the finished flavor that is reminiscent of chocolate.
