Morrissey mentions the film's influence on the cover of [[Ringleader Of The Tormentors]] via [http://web.archive.org/web/20080117064001/http://true-to-you.net/morrissey_news_070619_02 Questions Answered] (True-To-You.net, June, 2007):<br>
The picture of you holding the violin on the cover of Ringleader Of The Tormentors is brilliant! What was the inspiration for it?
St. Louis, Missouri, USA
There is an American film from 1946 called "Humoresque" in which Oscar Levant holds up a copy of a magazine with [[Mention::John Garfield]] on the front playing the violin, as he does throughout the film. I thought the Garfield picture was so touching, so I tried to copy it. Interestingly, my right hand is cupped on the European version, but is straight on the US version.
