“In Europe an elderly couple came up to me. The husband said: ‘We didn’t want to pass you without speaking to you. If it means anything to you, we want to tell you that over the years you have given us a lot of pleasure and entertainment.’ I told them that what they had just said meant everything to me. That’s what I’ve tried to make my life all about, and if they write ‘He gave people a lot of pleasure’ on my epitaph I shall be very pleased. I’ve had many people tell me that they remember certain little things I did in pictures. I think it’s wonderful to have been able to give people little pieces of time they can remember.”
