[in the 1930s, regarding his typecasting] If God is good, I will be able to play comedy, in which I was featured on Broadway for eight seasons and in which no producer of motion pictures will give me a chance!

(1931), further immortalized him in their song "The Ballad of Dwight Fry" (without the "e"). The nearly seven-minute conceptual composition appears on their "Love It To Death" album.
High, dynamic voice.
