Personal Quote:

One sketch was was called 'Ashes'. I played the role of the man with whom Mrs. Langtry was in love. Insasmuch as she, at that time, was sixty-three and I was twenty-one, audiences were inclined to be somewhat bewildered. Usually they began by thinking that I was her son, so it must have seemed a little odd to them when I suddenly began to make violent love to her. See more »
