Why is “xxxx doth not a yyyy make” considered valid English?
Proper usage/origin of the generic phrase “[action phrase] does not a [noun] make”
“Dazzling images do not a shining nation make”
I came across an article in TOI Crest Edition about black-and-white films. It had the following sentence, which looked dubious to me:
Two films don't a revolution make, and it would be even more simplistic to suggest that these two films are a reaction to the increasing use of CGI, motion capture and 3D in films today.
It is about the two recent black-and-white movies 'The Artist' and 'Good Night Good Morning'.
Is this sentence grammatically correct? Why?
