Robert Redford on Paul Newman: "He tells the worst jokes in the world, and that would be okay if he didn’t just keep repeating them, over and over again." [x]
I had the pleasure—the honor, really—of being asked to help dedicate the Walt Disney statue at Disneyland. It was his hundred birthday, they said would you play a couple of songs and I said okay. And I played a couple of things and I said ‘I’m now going to play Walt Disney’s favorite song. And it’s just for him.’ And I sang and played Feed the Birds… Tuppence a bag. I finished my song and I blew a kiss to Walt’s statue and said, ‘Happy birthday, Walt’ and I got down. And they told me afterwards, just toward the end, out of the clear blue sky, one bird flew down right over where I was playing and off again into the clouds. That moves me very much. That was Walt. Saying thanks.
