Eddie Cantor (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“[Will] Rogers was my grammar school, high school and college. He taught me that the world doesn’t end at the stage door and that politics are every man’s business, actors not excluded. He kept on giving me an education as long as he lived.”Eddie Cantor on why he read the newspapers for comedy/social comment material. It was a practice that served Will Rogers well. Cantor would later lose radio sponsors and be threatened with censorship for speaking out against Hitler a few years before the United States entered WWII.
