Once in Munich he refused to go into a screening of The General. Raymond [Rohauer] and I went to the opening night, but he stayed back in the hotel. It was a roaring success. I think it was just that he didn’t want to be disappointed. […] And he hated crowds bearing down on him. He was paralyzed by crowds. He’d panic and want to run away sometimes. You can see that in his face when This Is Your Life surprised him with a live television show about him. That was in 1957, I think, just before The Buster Keaton Story was released. You can tell he hardly knows what to do or say.
