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.
In addition to his fine work as a composer and playwright, he was also much in demand as a "script doctor". If a Broadway show needed a rewrite, he was often called to do the job. His talents were so well known, he was mentioned by name in the "Baby Fat" episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show
