“Yes, of course, I like comedy, but the comedy work in pictures is hard. It’s extraordinary how the public is on to any inconsistencies in this work. It was hard enough to make it convincing in the old regular business, but in front of the camera, conditions make it more exacting that ever.” — Augustus Carney in 1913
“For it must be confessed that it grows monotonous at times, and one can’t help wishing to do something else in between. As it is , am I Gus Carney, or am I Alkali Ike?” — Augustus Carney in 1913
