"I started doing comedy because that was the only stage that I could find. It was the pure idea of being on stage. That was the only thing that interested me, along with learning the craft and working, and just being in productions with people." 
-Robin Williams (July 21, 1951 - August 11, 2014)

~ Look magazine once challenged Ava Gardner to draw the attention of a Buckingham Palace guard towards herself, the guards were famously required to remain silent, motionless, & look straight ahead while on duty.

Ava Gardner circled him, cracked jokes, and performed all manner of dances, from the foxtrot to the waltz in front of him, but the guard successfully resisted the urge to acknowledge Gardner’s presence or charms, making himself a minor celebrity in the process. by oldhollywoodandchampagne http://ift.tt/1n3Ti4a
