The way the Army does things is sometimes a little strange.

At times we were criticized for doing too much slapstick. I don't believe in mild comedy, and neither does Lucy.

Since I was very young I have always worked hard at whatever I have had to do.

One of my biggest problems with comedy was that I did not understand some of the jokes.

Joe McCarthy and his Senate hearings were like witch-hunts.

An audience is so important. I would never have had the guts to dub in that big a laugh.

An actor who is good at comedy can also be very good at drama, but not necessarily vice versa.

Everyone seemed to be doing well except me and my career. And my accent was no helping me any.
