Personal Quote:

(On Jackie Gleason) From the very first show he is a problem. We know he is a talent and a boon to our efforts but it is a question of inhuman endurance. As I once said to Arnie, 'We have a tiger by the tail--a fat, funny tiger.' See more »


He studied art at a settlement house in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and moved to New York City when he was sixteen years old. See more »
