La Grande Illusion (1937)
Sylvain Itkine: Le lieutenant Demolder
Lieutenant Maréchal : It's not a very common disease in high society. Eh, Boeldieu?
Capt. de Boeldieu : Yes, but it's a vanishing privilege. Like so much else, it's become popularized. Cancer and gout are not working-class diseases, but they will be, believe me.
Lieutenant Rosenthal : How about intellectuals?
Le lieutenant Demolder : In our case, tuberculosis.
Capt. de Boeldieu : Here's Mr. Pindar.
Lieutenant Maréchal : And the middle-class?
Lieutenant Rosenthal : Liver ulcers, they eat too much. We'd each die of our own class aliment, if war didn't make all germs equal.
