If you can figure out my success on the screen, you're a better man than I.
People used to drive through here from Hollywood to see their movies
I have the face of an ageing choirboy and the build of an undernourished featherweight.
As long as my pictures go into theaters and we ask people to pay to see what I do on the screen, I should not object if customers want to know what kind of man I am.
I'm shy and can't for the life of me barge around and slap people on the back. I sit in a corner by myself and am tickled to death when someone comes over to talk to me.
It seems only reasonable that the people have a right to know virtually everything about the personality they are buying each time they put their money through the box office.
I learned more about acting from George Stevens in a few months than I had in my entire life up until then.
I'm the most insecure guy in Hollywood. If you had it good all your life, you figure it can't ever get bad, but when you had it bad, you wonder how long a thing like this will last.
Maybe I can't act, but I know the gimmicks. I studied acting all my life and know what's good for me.
What good will a tax break do me if I'm crippled for life?
Maybe I thought too much about picking up the money and not enough about the really good parts.
Just as Jimmy Stewart and Tyrone Power get 50 percent of the profits, so do I.
I've always had a great respect for the picture business. It's been good to me.
I'm no good with words but I'll find ways from time to time to show you how grateful I am.
It's a funny thing about me. I don't have any interest in food most of the time now, although when I was a kid I was always hungry.
