“My idea was to put slapstick into artistic backgrounds and unfold a connected story. I put these theories into practice with various comedians, but the work did not progress. They were types not suitable for every style of story. What I needed was a funny man who was not dependent upon eyebrows, moustache, funny gait, or makeup. So finally I went in and did the stunt myself.”
