[on the Academy Awards, 1936] It seems to me that a comedian who really makes people laugh should be as eligible for an award as a tragedian who makes people cry. This isn’t a case of sour grapes with me because I didn’t grow any grapes last year. I didn’t even sow a wild oat.
[While on his death bed] You know I’ve been thinking about those poor little news paper boy out there. Peddling there papers in cold and rain sole support of there mothers. I want to do something for them. On second thought f em!
