Did You Know?
[on winning the Oscar at age 72, after more than fifty years in show business.] I can't tell you how encouraging a thing like this is. The first film that I was ever in was in 1915, and here we are, and it's 1969. Actually, I don't know why it took me so long, though I don't think, you know, that I'm backward. Anyway, thank you Bill, thank you Bob, thank you Roman and thank you Mia, and thank all...
