[on sneak previews] Let one dim-witted schoolboy scrawl 'lousy' on his card, and the entire studio may be stampeded the following morning in an executive meeting to discuss slicing and revising the picture to shreds. On Hollywood's theory that the customer must know best, the schoolboy's 'lousy' is regarded as the last word in dramatic criticism."
Hardwicke was a favorite of George Bernard Shaw
, having made notable appearances in the playwright's "The Apple Cart," "Too True To Be Good," and "Caesar and Cleopatra
(1945)." Shaw initially referred to Hardwicke as his fifth favorite actor, the other four being the Marx Brothers. Later, he referred to him as his fourth favorite actor, presumably after Zeppo retired from the act.
