Did You Know?
[on Frank Loesser] He always could write songs. They burst out of him! How, or why or where? I don't know how you can ask that. What makes an artist, even a Van Gogh or whoever? The stuff was pouring out of him, It was always there. He read a lot, he asked questions a lot, he knew a lot. He was fascinated with words, the way I am.
Abe Burrows won the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the musical "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" collaborating with Frank Loesser.
