OED on "zero hour": 1915 N.Y. Times 9 Nov. 2/3 At 5:05 A. M. Sept. 25 a message came to the dugout that the ‘zero’ hour, that is, the time the gas was to be started, would be at 5:50 A. M.

Eden has listened to a lot of Ertha Kitt, check that phrasing. Nice one, Maxine.
  Fri. 2/24/17 12:25pm Dean:

Military origins, thus, the first entry in OED is "The time at which a military operation is scheduled to begin. Also in extended use: the time at which any (typically significant) event is scheduled to take place."

But then Joyce used the phrase, too, in Finnegan's Wake to refer to midnight.

I felt very old recently when I used the word ablutions to a young lad under twenty. (work related I hasten to add) He said 'What'; did not bother to explain.

I never had much use for Mr. Ives as a musician, but I will defend to my dotage the notion his was the definitive performance of the role of Big Daddy in the film version of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
