Colonel Mustard: Is this place for you? Wadsworth: Indeed no, sir. I’m merely a humble butler. Colonel Mustard: What exactly do you do? Wadsworth: I buttle, sir. Colonel Mustard: Which means what? Wadsworth: The butler is head of the kitchen and dining room. I keep everything tidy.
Tim Curry co-starring with Martin Mull in Clue (1985). Director: Jonathan Lynn.
“You know the scene on the engine where I’m supposed to feed the
fire, I’m supposed to be a little dumb about it. So somebody
said I should get hold of a log with a knothole in it, and throw it
away. I did that, but I didn’t think the audience would
understand it, and then I saw a very small piece of wood, and I
picked it up and threw it in. Buster liked it so right away he built it up; I mean he picked up an even smaller piece, just a splinter
really to see if I would be dumb enough to use that, too. And of
course I did, and so he jumped on me as if he was going to
choke me, but at the last moment he really gave me a little peck on the
cheek. I think I got that kiss more for thinking of the gag than
for anything else. And none of this was in written form at all.”
-Marion Mack on working with Buster Keaton in The General (1925)
