Gary Cooper, Frank Sinatra, Jack Benny and Danny Kaye at a cocktail party. January 1945
basically if I don’t find this whole episode in great quality(or any quality) I’m gonna die
The only achievement I am really, really proud of is the friends I have made in this community; and I use the word community in it’s larger sense. Just looking around this room makes me feel that my life has not been wasted. And if anybody asks me, am I the luckiest guy in the world? My answer is, yup.
