Jack Benny quotes
“Lubitsch's method of direction was perfect for me. He would act out the whole scene — and then he'd say, 'Now let's see how you'd do it.'”
“- Maria Tura: You certainly don't want me to waste a lot of time giving you a long explanation.
- Joseph Tura: No, but I think a husband is entitled to an inkling.”
“No comic can be great in films without two things — a great story which gives you a character to play, and a great director.”
“Gags die, humor doesn't.”
“If I shouldn't come back, I forgive you what happened between you and Sobinski. But if I come back, it's a different matter.”
“Hors d'oeuvres - a ham sandwich cut into forty pieces.”
So they call me "Concentration Camp Ehrhardt"?
“- Joseph Tura: Her husband is that great, great Polish actor, Joseph Tura. You've probably heard of him.
- Colonel Ehrhardt: Oh, yes. As a matter of fact I saw him on the stage when I was in Warsaw once before the war. What he did to Shakespeare we are now doing to Poland.”
