I had this effect on people. I remember walking along the street and seeing Eddie Cantor`s name up on one of the theaters, so I stopped by the ticket seller and asked him, `When does Eddie go on?` He looked at me and went pale and said, `You-you-you-you`re the guy in that picture up the street!` He was petrified of me. So I went and watched that movie again and thought to myself `Christ Almighty, what an ugly [expletive]!` Holes in my face, black eyes that pierce right through you.

[regarding his short-term membership in the Communist party in the 1930s]: "I went to about five or six meetings. When I got bored at home I`d go to a meeting."
During the House Un-American Activities Committee hearings, Lawrence testified that Lionel Stander told him that joining the Communist Party would make him more attractive to women. During his testimony, Stander denounced Lawrence as a psychopath and presented a letter that gave Lawrence's mental history and revealed that he had been hospitalized after a mental breakdown just prior to his HUAC testimony.
