    where did the expression “sugar-able” come from?

    SLEAZY

    Dear Word Detective,

    In the 1940s, a movie actor named Walter Selzak played several characters which epitomized the word sleazy. An example is the 1945 movie “The Spanish Main”. Could this have influenced the usage of the word sleazy ?

    Cheers,
    Gil
