Raised on Promises

Recommended Posts

So, I'm watching an old horror movie, Dementia 13. It is one of Francis Ford Coppola's first films. Louise, a scheming young widow, reflects to her brother-in-law that his fiance from America is "raised on promises".

I think the movie is from 1964 which definitely predates American Girl. Was this a common saying or was Tom Petty a big horror movie fan? I've never heard that saying that wasn't related to his song.
