Personal Quote:

For years I auditioned for producers and directors who would fall on the floor laughing, but then I'd never hear from them again. Go ask them why I'm not working. Believe me, there's a lot more to working steadily than being a name and delivering the laughs. There's a certain--let's call it kowtowing--that I'm not prepared to do.

Trivia:

Debuted on stage in 1939 in a touring production of "See My Lawyer" and appeared on Broadway in 1947 in "The Magic Touch". See more »
