Happy Birthday Harry Langdon born June 15, 1884"The oddest thing about this whole funny business is that the public really want to laugh, but it’s the hardest thing in the world to make them do it."
"There should be a breathing spell between laughs, with a gradual development leading up to a laugh. A picture that is on laugh from start to finish becomes tedious. Relief is necessary."
"Most deliciously comic moments on the outside, are full of sad significance for those who realize the sinister characterization of the situation."
"I must be wretched, and consequently ludicrous. When I do a part in a film, I must really suffer. In my pictures I allow myself to be a victim of Fate. But a sort of Divine providence always carries me through."
-Harry’s unique take on comedy in his own words
