    He kept his loss a secret for a long time -- only his valet knew for certain how much of his leg was or wasn't there. Others knew he had been injured and that his leg therefore wasn't to be relied upon in certain ways, but few knew that he didn't have one at all.

    Good actor too.

      I read that he worked very hard to learn to walk "normally"--and succeeded very well indeed. And oddly enough he was a wonderful comic actor. I had the good fortune to see the classic Lubitsch comedy "Trouble in Paradise" at the LA County Museum of Art on the film's 60th anniversary. The audience was packed with film students from UCLA and USC, and it was SRO. We all laughed a whole lot. It was still a very funny film. Oh, and you know you are with a VERY knowledgeable group when the screen writer credit gets a round of applause!
