    Excerpt:

    "The story goes that The Smiths were enjoying a two-week break from the road which led to Morrissey sitting down in front of his television ready to take in some of Britain’s finest programming. He happened to land upon the late night showing on BBC1 of the 1972 film Sleuth. The film starred the acclaimed pairing of Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine and it was an exchange between the two which would spark the wheels of the song in motion."
