>> you still have to have pride? >> i still have to do it as well as i can. >> were there any actors or actresses that influenced you specifically at any time? >> i don't know if influenced me. one of the passions of my life, of course, was anna magnani, absolutely, and she has sort of the same reputation in her country that i finally ended up in mine. so i always said there was one in each country. >> right. >> influenced, i don't -- i don't have a memory of being actually influenced. >> right. >> i always wanted to have katherine hepburn's gorgeous face. i would look at mine and say why can't you look like that divine woman. so that kind of envy i may have had, but i don't think i was influenced which that's probably a very conceded remark. >> no, but look at the people-- >> went my own way, i just must have gone my own way, i guess. >> look at the people who probably had envy you and
>> well... maybe. [ laughter ] >> has there been any actor or actress that you really wanted to work with -- you said -- i find it interesting that you never worked with james stewart. >> no, you see, gable, stewart, all of those marvelous people went through goldwin, maher. >> those are the studio days, aren't they? >> and they never went back and fort at all. because people couldn't believe jimmy and i never worked together, there was never an opportunity, nor did we ever think we would. >> right. do you think it's better for actors today, to be a little more independent and not have a mayor studio -- >> no, i think the contract system is a great craft for young players. the young players. >> to learn the craft. >> oh yes, to learn the craft and have that solid job week after week, after week. >> did you ever do a picture you didn't want to do? >> well, the first two years, i did -- every one i didn't want to do. [ laughter ] >> oh yes, parachute jumper -- >> i saw that. i don't remember
television, thank god. bureau of missing persons. [ laughter ] >> oh, golden -- horrible. they were what they called the b pictures in those days. >> right. but you were obligated on a contract to do them. >> under contract, and i didn't have the position in the beginning, but we did learn our craft. but of course i came from the theater. i had been in the theater four or five years, so i had some knowledge of acting, but i think it's sad today because with the contract system there was such continuity. and that's why people got to know you, love you, and you became part of the family. they saw you year, after year, after year. they bought properties for you. they bought plays for you. very difficult today to get scripts. >> right. do you -- are you a severe critic of yourself when you watch yourself? >> i loathe -- >> really? >> i have never appreciated -- i mean, i have never liked what i have done.
film in all of these years, i say now let's make it. now i know what i'm doing. because that's the worst of motion pictures. the first day you got to play that character, because that first day will be shown just as much as your last day. that is very difficult, as opposed to the theater where you rehearse. >> but you must be happy with some of your work? >> well, now when i'm removed and see some of them, i never could stand my face, of course. it was just one of those things. [ laughter ] >> no truthfully, never could stand my face. directors kept me out of brushes because i would be so depressed for days. >> what didn't you like about your face? >> i thought it was hideous. i couldn't stand it. [ laughter ] >> well, now i'm a great many years older, and i see some of those films and i don't think there is any question i was the best-looking woman ever made.
[ applause ] >> and sexy too. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> well -- >> and sexy too. >> and sexy too. have i lost all of that. >> no. >> the sex part? >> no. >> i don't want it anymore. [ laughter ] >> you can think about it can't you? >> no, i don't even think about it. [ laughter ] >> in other words i'm not a frustrated woman in that area. fortunately because i would imagine i would have very few opportunities. [ laughter ] >> what do you like to do now? what is a nice day for you -- >> my home. >> really? >> yes, i'm a very domestic person. >> sentimental? >> very sentimental about my things, my joy in the fact that i have three children and three grandsons, and -- and very
about six months of this, i am ready to go to work again. >> right. >> yes, but that's about as much as i want to work. >> yeah, do have you got something coming up? >> not at the moment, no. not at the moment, i do not. >> yeah. >> scripts -- i have been very fortunate with the networks, you see. i have had four of the greatest parts for my age in the last two or three years that -- that anybody could ever have, and right-of-way is another one. and i personally think the networks are doing films about people much more than they -- what they now snobbishly call theatrical films. >> i agree with you. >> is not television films, and theatrical films and you are not really in if you are not making theatrical films. i think the networks are doing some absolutely incredible scripts, i mean it. >> you know, one thing you -- >> did you see thursday's child the other night? >> no, i did not. >> vicky pool who wrote that
portland, maine, and i knew that whole family, and sam and all of them, and it's -- well, it's an incredible book, and incredible story, but that's just one of many. right-of-way is another great script. just great. >> yeah. we're going to take a break and -- you know richard pryor don't you? >> we just met backstage for one fleeting second. >> all ready. well, we'll have a couple of more fleeting seconds out here.
[ cheers and applause ] [ cheers and applause ] >> you are not going to get your record. this is mine. [ laughter ] >> i haven't got one. >> well, we'll get you one at tower records next week. >> i'll steal one at tower. >> steal one at tower. this is mine. my next guest is one -- i'm going to go out on a limb, i don't think he is one of the funniest man working anywhere in the world today. his new motion picture the toy is currently running, and he is costarring in the next episode of superman. [ laughter ] richard pryor.
[ music ] >> how are you? [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. thank you. i just want to say that i'm really honored to be here with you. i love you very much. and i'm really pleased to be here. >> thank you. >> yes, ma'am. >> thank you. [ laughter ] >> how about me? [ laughter ] >> i iare for you very much, you know that. >> i know you do. >> i thank you for letting people know i was sick too the time i couldn't come. >> that's right, no, it's true, he was in hawaii and you called me the next day and you said i'm not feeling well and i said i appreciate that. a lot of people say i'm not feeling good and they don't show, but you got on the phone. >> thank you. >> some people do not show, but don't call? >> it has happened. >> it has really happened? >> yeah, where somebody will hear they are not feeling well.
>> yeah. >> charming! [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> i don't know anyone who could say as much with that word as you could. charming, yes. [ laughter ] >> so how have you been? is this a new walking stick or something? >> i got this in zimbabwe. >> were you in zimbabwe. >> yeah, i was leaving and a gentlemen gave this to me, and i'm going to keep it until i go back in april. i want him to know i still have it. >> what is it a walking stick -- >> a walking stick -- and you can hit people with it. >> made of special wood? that's beautiful. it looks like... hand made. >> i hope so. >> what were you doing in zimbabwe? >> i just went. a friend of mine lives there. >> you have a time-sharing condo or something? [ laughter ] >> i just finished superman in england, and i flew over there. and it is great.
nicest people on earth. this is really one of the nicest places on earth. i mean you can go -- like at night, i get up at the hotel about 11:00 at night, and you go to the park and you sit in the park, and you see older lady's walking. >> yeah. >> you know? and there is never no rapes or murders or people getting robbed, and not many people knew me there and it was really nice to be somewhere and just walk down the street. >> anonymously. >> yeah. >> they didn't know you. >> sometimes when you see women, i try to get that look on my face, like they should recognize me or something. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> like hi there, how are you? >> and i had a feeling they were saying what is wrong with that idiot? [ laughter ] >> did you miss not being recognized? there have been cases of entertainers in this country who have gone to another country and think i really want to get lost here so nobody will know me, which is good for about a day, and then all of a sudden they go to aunt are, and the maitre
they don't know who they are and then they come back home, and it starts to bother you. >> i find those feelings exciting to me. >> really? >> because it has been like 15 years for me when somebody just -- except the irs hasn't recognized me. [ laughter ] >> they are kind of pen pals of yours, aren't they? >> yeah, so i really enjoyed it. >> how long were you there? >> i was there about two weeks. next time i'm going back for a month. >> yeah, sounds good. the toy with jackie gleason. >> yeah. >> that's out now. >> yep. [ laughter ] >> i guess we have established did you take your kids to see it? >> no, my children went -- i haven't seen it. >> come on, why not? >> i'm afraid -- i don't like to go -- >> she said that also. >> i put it off as long as possible. because you have dreams each time of what a film will be, and your are petrified that it won't live up to that dream, so i can wait forever before i see
this picture? >> oh, i don't know. [ laughter ] >> but i was really worried about -- you know, when your kids want to see the trust agreement after they see a movie, they are kind of worried. >> are you sure we have money for college, dad? >> they want to see the will. yeah, that gives you a little insecurity. yourself when you see yourself work? >> i can't see myself work. i just really cannot. i get prettify, i don't know what it is, i just don't like what i see. >> i had not seen the first concert that you had done. i've seen the other ones, but i have not seen the one i think in long beach a couple of years ago. i saw it on television. i was historical. literally was hysterical screaming with laughter. >> thank you. [ applause ] >> you got to see it, very funny. >> you know something, if i appear strange to you or something, i hope i don't -- >> no. >> but it's just like, you know in life you go through a lot of changes, and sometimes
it's like i don't drink anymore. or do drugs, right? >> right. >> and really it's strange meeting people i used to know when i was drunk and loaded. [ laughter ] >> because i don't have the same -- i don't remember them first of all. [ laughter ] >> they go richard! how are ya doing? hi. [ laughter ] >> and i -- i find -- it's real interesting. >> you remember being here. >> i was here once, wasn't i? >> no. no. [ laughter ] >> i remember stuff like this, but it's just -- i don't know what i'm trying to say, probably something that is not interesting. >> yes, it is. zimbabwe will do that to you. you get real mellow. we're going to take a break and
dude, that's sara. who's sara? the girl in the pink shirt. that's the girl i was telling you about. oh, that's sara. theater two on your left. hey sara, what color underwear today? hey sara. so, when you gonna post something new? announcer: anything you post online, anyone can see. family, friends... see ya later, sara.

[ laughter ] >> well, you are hot. >> i was flying with christopher reeves, superman, and they fly you on these wires. >> i was going to ask you how they do that. >> and in the studio when you rehearse flying, it's real nice because there's mats on the floor, and there's walls, and you feel real comfortable, but then they take you outside and put you up about 60 feet, and man, hey. [ laughter ] >> i mean, i'm up there and the wires move wrong -- >> were there any mats or anything when you were outside? >> no, ma'am. >> no protection? >> no.
[ laughter ] >> well, that has been said. [ laughter ] >> yeah. we can get an affidavit on that. oh, yeah. [ applause ] >> the piano wires -- >> yeah, but i was really petrified, man. i'm talking about i was ready to cry. >> yeah? [ laughter ] >> and chris said, don't worry, i've got you. [ laughter ] >> and i looked at him, and i looked at his wires and we are both hanging up there like pinocchio, and he said i got you, and i thought this guy really believes. [ laughter ] >> are you superman's pal? >> yeah, we end up being friends. i tried to kill him. [ laughter ] >> is he married to lois lane? did they -- >> no, they didn't get married. >> i thought they got married? >> he kissed her and divorced her. remember? he gave her that super kiss. >> oh, yeah. [ laughter ] >> wipe her memory, clean up. >> did they ever consummate that relationship in the picture? >> no, he wasn't superman when
[ laughter ] >> oh, that's right, he was clark kent. >> yeah, he was clark kent-- [ laughter ] >> but in this one he makes love to a woman as superman. >> ah. >> yeah. i ain't telling no more. [ laughter ] >> it's good. >> does it different do it differently as superman? >> it does it faster? [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> unfortunately lois lane is wearing a kryptonite coil. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> so nothing happened. [ laughter ] >> i'm sorry about that. no, i'm not either. it's very late at night, might as well drop one in there for the late nighters. so now you go back home to -- [ humming ] >> yeah, for a while. >> do you like hawaiian music? >> i like hawaiian people, i
i like-- i love it there very much, but after a while -- i thought i was going to take off a year, you know, i said i'm taking a year off and i'm not working, i was very serious for the first three or four weeks. [ laughter ] >> and i don't know, it's just something you start thinking you get ideas when you are off. so i have an opportunity now to do something about them. so i'm going to. >> you are going to start working again? >> yeah. >> great. we'll take a short time-out and

( babbling like a baby ) see how this goes? very lightly, actually. okay. okay, i'll show you what else i want you to do. now, when the flowers are delivered to us they're not... hello. when the flowers are delivered they're not ready for sale, okay? we have to strip and clean them.
jack, stop that. when do you spread the pollen on me? jack... jack, all right, that's enough. just pay attention. now, down here, the leaves at the bottom-- they have to be stripped away. you use this and you go... ah! you got that? you think you can do it? sure. go in the back and do these and the rest of the shipment. good afternoon. can i help you? i'd like something special for my anniversary. well, we can make up a nice arrangement. how much do you want to spend? well, i really haven't thought about it. excuse me, please. i'm in a hurry. mrs. simpson, i'll be with you in just a moment. i'm in a hurry. uh, yes, ma'am. jack! i'm sorry, sir. what can i get for $15? well, i could make a nice arrangement... i'm going to have to leave... i'm sorry. jack! i want them delivered to this address. oh, i'm sorry to be a nuisance... then why are you? i beg your pardon? jack, jack!
call me? yes, you did. where were you? in the back stripping. oh, uh, jack, no. please, give me that. if you just wait on this lady. she's in quite a hurry. oh, is it an emergency? oh, no. i just hate waiting. now, if you'll just help me with the flowers over there. and would you enclose that card? okay, let me see here. "to my darling sweetheart of 35 wonderful years. from your one and only andy." wow. that's real sweet. yeah, that ought to hold the old bat for a while. no. i can't decide. i want something nice to cheer up a very old man. how about a very young woman? really, i can't make up my mind. flowers are beautiful
