Julie and Jackie: How Sweet It Is (1974 TV Movie)
Jackie Gleason: 30 years in this business and you're still treated like a beginner. Like a 55 year old office boy looking for a job... with a chance for advancement. All those years... and what do I have to show for it? A couple of suits? I couldn't even get this one pressed.
Jackie Gleason: Well emperor is it thumbs up or thumbs down? Do we get to work another day? Do we get to eat another day? Do we get to LIVE another day?
Julie Andrews: Please Mr Dennis, don't do this to yourself, this is no way for an actor to behave...
Jackie Gleason: Oh yes it is. I was doing what actors do best, showing off a little bit. That was a line from Act 3, scene 2 of "THE COMPANY MAN"... it was written by Robert Lawton. THAT's what you call acting.
Jackie Gleason: Tell the emperor
Jackie Gleason: NEXT!
