    “Somehow I can’t believe there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C’s. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy and the greatest of these is Confidence. When you believe a thing, believe it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.” - Walt Disney

    Although he would always use his real first name in his films, this is possibly the only time that Harold’s character on screen is explicitly named Harold Lloyd. In this shot, a hand double is also used due to Harold’s hand injury; his prosthetic glove would be visible in a shot this close.

    "It was the same chemistry, and this may sound weird- well, I don’t know how it’s going to sound-that happens when the sperm and egg make contact and can reproduce a magnificent miracle. That’s what we had. I don’t know of any other chemistry that’s as godlike.” - Jerry Lewis

    "The response was almost orgiastic. Little girls were practically having orgasms every time Dean and Jerry opened their mouths." - Norman Taurog

    "We’d do anything that came into our minds. Anything at all." - Dean Martin

    "Like Burns and Allen, Abbott and Costello, and Hope and Crosby, we were vaudevillians, stage performers who worked with an audience. But the difference between us and all the others is significant. They worked with a script. We exploded without one, the same way wiseguy kids do on a playground, or jazz musicians do when they’re let loose. And the minute we started out in nightclubs, audiences went nuts for us. As Alan King told an interviewer a few years ago: ‘I have been in the business for fifty-five years, and I have never to this day seen an act get more laughs than Martin and Lewis. They didn’t get laughs–it was pandemonium. People knocked over tables."’ -  Jerry Lewis, Dean and Me, 2005.

    “They were just as wild and wacky and crazy and uninhibited in the dressing room as they were on a nightclub floor. Nothing they said as individuals made too much sense, but I think it added up to a colorful picture of two entertaining guys for whom nothing seemed too sacred in those days…. It was the way they were. They were filled with fun and frolic and the looming fortune their careers had suddenly brought them.” – Frank Brookhouser, Philadelphia Bulletin
