Personal Quote:

(On Art Carney) We got to know Art pretty well when Arnie Rosen and I were working at CBS. He was brilliant and we remembered him. We brought him in cold and pushed him down Gleason's throat. 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 »
