Joseph Leo Mankiewicz Quote
“I suggested to Schulberg that he let me do a comedy about the Olympic Games, poke fun at the whole thing, and B.S. went along with it. That's how I got to write 'Million Dollar Legs', which had W.C. Fields and Ben Turpin and a whole batch of comics. Nowadays the art-film students say it was years ahead of its time — that's happened to me a lot since then.

Ho suggerito a Schulberg di farmi girare un film sui giochi olimpici prendendo in giro l'intera situazione e fu così che scrissi 'Million Dollar Legs', in cui c'erano tanti comici tra cui W.C. Fields e Ben Turpin. Oggigiorno gli studenti di cinema dicono che quello fu un film all'avanguardia e spesso, in seguito, ho fatto cose del genere.
