Personal Quote:

[on Universal Pictures studio heads Leo Spitz and William Goetz] Mr. Spitz was a nice man, but he wouldn't talk to either Bud [Bud Abbott] or Lou [Lou Costello]. I think he was scared of them. Mr. Goetz was a very fine independent producer. But you had two people in charge of the studio who didn't know anything about comedy at all.
