Can you attribute?

Would it be acceptable to end a sentence with something similar to this?

The sailor's last gasp was "What happend...mama what happened?"

Bonus if anyone knows that quote from a 1960's film starring Steve McQueen.

The movie might have been ‘Sandpipers’, or something similar in name. McQueen was a yoeman on a boat running refugees out in China, IIRC.

Funny that he should come up in a thread on unpretentious
rich people. I just helped move the National Motorcycle
Museum in Animosa Ia. to their new location. One of the
bikes was Steve's old Indian chopper. What a pile! Nice to
see his ego didn't outgrow him.
