Did You Know?
I've done for the most part pretty much what I intended. I ended up doing comedy, writing and painting. I've had a ball. And as I get older, I just become an older kid.
Winters' career started as a result of a lost wristwatch, about six or seven months after his marriage to Eileen in 1948. The newlyweds couldn't afford to buy another one. Then Eileen read about a talent contest in which the first prize was a wristwatch, and encouraged Jonathan to "go down and win it". She was certain he could, and he did.
