Personal Quote:

On why he always insisted on full orchestral backing on his recordings: The effect is like this - you're looking into Tiffany's most elegant store window, and in the window is a black velvet pillow, and right in the middle of the pillow is an onion - that's me! See more »

Trivia:

Original creator/producer of both "I've Got a Secret" and Jackie Gleason's game show fiasco "You're in the Picture", the former running almost two decades, the latter running for only one week. See more »
