Timeless Joke

One day during the filming of Midnight (1939), Don Ameche and director Mitch Leisen pulled a practical joke on Claudette Colbert. Having enlisted the oldest extra on the set, they instructed him to knock at Colbert's dressing room door. When she opened it, the man flashed a wizened smile and said: "Miss Colbert, I've adored you ever since I was a little boy." Colbert immediately guessed who was behind the gag, and chased Ameche all over the lot.
