1Huge, bulging eyes
1I do have a lot of violence in me, though. It's usually directed against objects. When I'm angry I may throw or kick something. But the last time I kicked something I almost sprained my toe, and when I threw a bottle, it smashed all over me. I really shouldn't do those things.
2I don't enjoy anything while I'm doing it. I enjoy having done things, though.
3To have an effect on the audience, that's the most enjoyable thing I think, you know? To convey a real emotion, to communicate something more than information. To be able to move an audience in some way; either to laughter or proverbially to tears. Days when you feel you've done it, when you've done a good scene, you know it.
4I don't know any jokes, which is embarrassing. I wish I did.
5I do not disbelieve in anything. I start from the premise that everything is true until proved false. Everything is possible.
6I like to be by myself, reading, wandering about art galleries. I like solitude, walking.
7Money can't buy poverty.
8I won't eat anything that has intelligent life, but I'd gladly eat a network executive or a politician.
9Comedy, like sodomy, is an unnatural act.
10I don't want to be a director. I want to direct. There's a difference.
11The pen is mightier than the sword, and is considerably easier to write with.
1Suffered from Graves' disease during his early childhood in which, after a botched surgical operation, his condition resulted in his eyes being more protruded and misaligned (strabismus).
2In A Clockwork Orange, when Alex (Malcolm McDowell) returns home from prison one of the smaller headlines in the newspaper his father is reading says: "Marty Feldman's Wife Banned".
3Befriended a young teen who crashed the Young Frankenstein (1974) set named Alan Spencer and offered encouragement to his writing career. The young scribe eventually created the TV show Sledge Hammer! (1986).
4According to various sources, Feldman was known to get physically sick when having to watch screenings of his own work or performance.
5Liked to write poetry and, as a teenager, was even introduced to famous poet Dylan Thomas. Thomas reportedly told the young Feldman that he had talent, thus he continued to write.
6Was deported from Paris for vagrancy as a teenager when he pretended to be an innocent youth, impressed with the work of an American sculptor pretending to be French. Feldman, working on commission for the sculptor, lured gullible tourists as customers.
7Had a number of absurd and varied jobs in his youth. These included being a kitchen hand, message boy for an advertising agency, jazz musician in clubs, greyhound racetrack tipster, and an assistant to an Indian fakir in his side-show acts.
8Liked to play soccer and also enjoyed watching Baseball, calling it, "Cricket on speed".
9His wife Lauretta asked him to marry her, when he supposedly made no move to do so, after nine months of daily dating.
10Subject of a novelty song by Bruce Baum. The song was a parody of the hit "Bette Davis Eyes" by Kim Carnes ("All the boys think she's a guy / she's got Marty Feldman eyes").
11In his DVD commentary for Young Frankenstein (1974), director Mel Brooks provides a further explanation for Marty Feldman's early death. According to Brooks, who worked with him on Young Frankenstein and Silent Movie (1976), Feldman smoked about half a carton of cigarettes (four or five packs) a day as well as drank copious amounts of black coffee (the tannic acid in coffee, which can be partly neutralized by milk, in some studies has been found to increase the risk of heart attack). Feldman was also a vegetarian and compensated for the lack of meat in his diet by eating large amounts of eggs and dairy products on a daily basis which may have clogged his arteries. The high altitude of Mexico City (over 7,000 feet above sea level) with the air about 10% thinner, where Feldman was filming most of Yellowbeard (1983), would have added still more stress by forcing his heart and lungs to work harder. The food poisoning that Feldman and Michael Mileham contracted would only have been the final straw, which would explain why Mileham survived, and Feldman didn't.

13Despite persistent published reports. Marty Feldman was NOT the brother of actress Fenella Fielding. The two are not related in any way.
14When presenting the 1976 Live Action Short Oscar, he called the two winning producers to the stage, threw the statue to the floor, then handed a shard of the award to each one. He said, "It said, 'Made in Hong Kong' on the bottom."
15Interred at Forest Lawn - Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, California - Garden of Heritage, Lot 5420
16Buried in Forest Lawn near his idol, Buster Keaton
17Died in Mexico City of shellfish poisoning on the last day of filming a scene from Yellowbeard (1983), in which he was supposed to die. A double completed the death scene. His illness was discovered by filmmaker friend Michael Mileham who had also suffered from the same poisoning but survived.
