Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Frank Loesser] He always could write songs. They burst out of him! How, or why or where? I don't know how you can ask that. What makes an artist, even a Van Gogh or whoever? The stuff was pouring out of him, It was always there. He read a lot, he asked questions a lot, he knew a lot. He was fascinated with words, the way I am. See more »

Trivia:

In addition to his fine work as a composer and playwright, he was also much in demand as a "script doctor". If a Broadway show needed a rewrite, he was often called to do the job. His talents were so well known, he was mentioned by name in the "Baby Fat" episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961). See more »
