And, don't worry, they don't repossess the Bible if one month you don't mail in the payment.
You mail in the payment the following month, that's all.

F for Fake
Directed by Orson Welles (1973)

Ladies and gentleman, by way of introduction, this is a film about trickery, fraud, about lies.
Tell it by the fireside or in a marketplace or in a movie, almost any story is almost certainly some kind of lie.
But not this time. This is a promise. For the next hour, everything you hear from us is really true and based on solid fact.

Orson Welles
